Hi I'm Shannon

I grew up in Ogden, Utah. I love life, people, and traveling the world! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in the medium size town of Ogden my entire life with my two little brothers, parents and my dog named Steve. I love to learn, watch movies, and spend time with my family and friends. My dreams include traveling the world and to learn as many languages as possible.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up with the expectation of going to church every week and to believe in God. One year, when I started to become a teenager, I wondered if it was all really true. I didn't know if I truly did believe all of it, and my anxiety about life grew and grew. Finally, I decided to give it a try. With intent and a sincere desire to know the truth, I prayed and read the Book of Mormon. Because of this, I learned what it felt like to feel the Spirit, and I learned that God truly loves me as his daughter. Christ truly did suffer for our sins as our older brother, and we can learn about his life and how to follow his example in the Book of Mormon. I was able to feel the truth of this from the peace of the Holy Ghost. I know it is true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through attending my weekly church meetings and through the various positions I have been assigned in my area. I have been in charge of the 2 year-old's as well as inviting people to parties in my young adult area while I was in college. This has allowed me to meet a huge variety of people and work with others.
