Hi I'm Shawn

Im from a small town where I have grown up in LDS religion. I love it, and I am now currently serving my mission in Tampa Florida.

About Me

I love all kinds of sports and love to be competitive. After my mission I plan on going to college and hopefully marry the girl of my dreams!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into an LDS family. As I have grown up, I have come to realize that this the true Gospel! I am so thankful for what the Savoir has done in my life. His atonement helps not only me, but can help every person in this world if they are willing to use it. The only way to access this atonement is by being baptized and receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. That God used him to bring back the TRUE church of Jesus Christ. I'm so grateful to be a Mormon!

How I live my faith

I am living by my faith everyday! I have given up 2 years of my life to serve the lord with all my heart, might, mind, and strength. I have no regrets and am very blessed to have this opportunity of serving a mission.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Jesus Christ had to perform the Atonement because that literally is the only way we could make it back to our Heavenly Father. Our Heavenly Father is perfect. Man on Earth is not perfect. The only way to live with our Father in Heaven is to become like him. Everyone makes mistakes and has hard times. We all fall short of what is expected, but if we come to our Savior with a broken heart and contrite spirit and really a desire to change, the Atonement will be there to help us. Show more Show less
