Hi I'm Shylo

I love animals of every kind. I love my small town Nebraska life. I love my family. And I love being a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Nebraska and in the church. I have a big family and my siblings are my best friends. My parents are my greatest examples. I currently go to school at BYU-Idaho and I'm leaving for my mission in South Carolina in just a week. I will preach the gospel in Spanish. I love this gospel more than anything and I'm so excited I get the chance to share it for the rest of my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I have not always had a testimony of this church. Although I was raised by wonderful members, I still had to go out and find the truth of the church. I think at some point in our lives, everyone needs to find that knowledge for themselves. I spent many nights on my knees crying to my Heavenly Father to help me find an answer. And I found it. Every time I read The Book of Mormon and the trials of those in it, I feel their strength and the truth of their words. Every time I use Jesus Christ's Atonement and recognize His grace and forgiveness in my life, Heavenly Father answers my prayers. The wonderful thing about our Father in Heaven is that when His children seek Him, they will always find Him.

How I live my faith

I lead music at church which has been a learning curve. I also had the chance to be a second counselor in the women's organization in the church. I have had the opportunity to lead in many church camps in my youth and I love to serve people in any way I can.
