Hi I'm Shyanne

I'm a dreamer, lover, fellow Utahn. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a college student in Utah, just waiting to go on my mission. I'm a psychology major but before that I was a biochem major. I'm the oldest of three kids. I'm the only active church member in my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized when I was 8 years old but my family went inactive shortly after. All growing up however, I clung to the Mormon church's standards, morals, and values. When I was 17 I made the decision to go back to church. Four years later and I'm still in it. I have felt more joy as an active member than I could have ever possibly felt as an inactive member. Coming closer to Christ has made this life so much easier than it was without him. Over the years I have come to know that this church is true. It is His church, Christ's church. And it's where I'll stay.

How I live my faith

I go to church every sunday and do my best to lift up others. That's what we're about. Helping each other along in this mortal life.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Shyanne
Whatever you questions you have about God, Jesus Christ, the afterlife, the Mormon church, will all get answered when you let the missionaries visit you. They will talk about whatever it is you need to talk about. They'll teach you about the basic fundamentals of the Mormon church, and they'll give you a Book of Mormon to read if you would like one.

Why are only some Mormons allowed into temples? Is there something secret going on in Mormon temples? What goes on in Mormon temples?

Shyanne
Everyone, members and nonmembers, are invited to come to the temple grounds and feel of the spirit. But to go inside you must have a temple recommend. To gain a temple recommend you must keep the commandments and live worthily. The things done inside the temple are not secret, but definitely sacred. We don't reveal what goes on in the temple because it is between us and the Lord Jesus Christ. It is personal and private, holy and sacred, and kept close to our hearts. Inside the temple we feel of the spirit, do work for the dead, and remember the promises that we make with God. It is also where we get married. Inside, we can be sealed to our significant other for time and all eternity. Show more Show less

What is the First Vision?

Shyanne
The First Vision was a vision had by our very first prophet Joseph Smith. Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ came to Joseph one day while he was fervently praying to know which church was the true church of God. They told him that the true church did not exist on the earth at that time and that soon, Joseph would be given the opportunity to restore God's church to His people. Show more Show less
