Hi I'm Shawn

I love sports I love my family I am currently serving a mission in Minnesota and Ahhhhh Yeeeaahhh! 'Im a Mormon

About Me

I am currently serving a mission in Minnesota. I really love being a missionary because i have the chance to learn so much about the Gospel and just go out and help people. I grew up in Enterprise Utah and love basketball and pretty much all sports, hunting, fishing, music, having fun with friends,and being with my family. I have such an amazing family. I have one older brother one older sister and one younger brother whom I always dominate in sports. My brothers and I just thrive on playing back yard sports vs. each other. It gets a little competitive sometimes but in the end we always know we love each other. Everybody in my family has such a great relationship with one another. I know that is due to us spending time together and living Jesus Christs gospel. I just like to have fun and enjoy myself. I know that life is not to be endured but enjoyed. I am a huge Tarheels fan and just thrive on watching them beat Duke.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church and throughout my life I have seen the huge impact the LDS Religion has had on my life and so many other lives as well. I have seen how families that live the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ can have real true happiness in this life and in the life to come. All I have ever known is the teachings of the LDS Religion but I know that is all I need to know. I have grown up seeing all the blessings that are given to those that do just as the scriptures instruct and be obedient to God and his commandments. I know that the only way to learn Jesus Christs gospel is to live it. I have really seen the importance of having a prophet on the earth today. It is such a huge blessing to know that God has called a man just like Moses to be his chosen prophet on the earth today to guide our families. I have a very strong testimony of the Book of Mormon. I know that it is true and it contains the word of God just like the Bible. I have read the Book of Mormon many times and each time as I read it my testimony grows even stronger that it is the word of God and it was written by inspired prophets centuries ago. It contains as does the Bible the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ and is very important to me.

How I live my faith

Living your faith is the only way to learn your faith.I feel that I live my faith every day by striving as hard as I can to live the teachings of Jesus Christ and the word that God gives us through His chosen prophet Thomas S. Monson. As I live my life this way I really see the promises that God has given become reality. God has given us promised blessings if we just obey him and he is just waiting to bless us. Another way i am able to live my faith is to share it with others. I was once told the sign of a true conversion is when you have the desire to share it with others. When you know what you have been given is so great you just want others to have it as well. As I have shared the true restored gospel with others I have seen so many people be blessed so much in their lives by it they just want to go out and share it with all their friends and family.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Shawn
Yes there is. His name is Thomas S. Monson and he is called by God just like the prophets of old like Moses. He receives revealation from God to guide and help us. Show more Show less

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Shawn
You can know for yourself that mormonism is true by reading the Book of Mormon and praying to ask God if it is true. That is exactly what I did and I received an answer I could never deny. Show more Show less
