Hi I'm ShaNae

I grew up in Central Valley. I love dance, cook and take care of others in need. I'm a missionary serving in Winter Quarters

About Me

I was adopted at a very young age. I grew up in what you can call a small town. When I was a senior in high school, I served on seminary counsel for my high school. I grew up loving to cook and dance, but as I got older I started to love Track and Field so I did it in high school. I threw shot put, discuss, and javelin. I attended Snow College located in Ephraim, Utah for one year.

Why I am a Mormon

Ever since I was a baby, I was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I knew it was true because my parents knew it was true. While going to high school, my testimony became stronger then it was when I was younger because I started to understand the standard works of the gospel. After graduating from high school, I went on a trip where I saw places like Navuoo and Palmyra; after seeing places like that built my testimony about the restoration up and stronger. Ever since, I've grown to love my Savior and brother Jesus Christ. I've also came to know my Savior so much better through serving as one of His representatives.

How I live my faith

Like I said before, I was called to serve on Seminary Counsel in high school. I also served in my ward's class presidencies from the time I was 12 to 18. Through out high school, I did organizations that allowed me to serve others in little ways while helping me get my mind off of myself and help others in need.

Who was Joseph Smith?

Joseph Smith was a typical boy who went from religion to religion and had a question which was "which one of these churches is true?". At the age 14, Joseph read a familiar scripture which is James 1:5-6; it says that if any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God. Joseph did that exact thing and prayed in the woods near his home and God the Father and His son Jesus Christ appeared to him saying that he must join none of them. And because of that simple little prayer, Joseph was able to bring back the true church of Christ and was able to open up the last dispensation. Show more Show less
