Hi I'm Shawn Ferguson

I'm a Mormon. I am a father of 4 daughters living in Idaho and was married to my wife in the Salt Lake City Temple in 1994.

About Me

I am a father of 4 girls and work in construction building houses. I love to watch sports including football and basketball. I enjoy the outdoors including hunting and fishing when I have the time. Also I am a soccer dad to my daughters which takes up most of my nights and Saturdays. I married my wife in 1994 and she can still stand to be with me most of the time.

Why I am a Mormon

The reason that I am a Mormon is because I believe that it is the only true church on the earth, I have prayed about this and have received my own conformation about this. I love the teaching of the church, it gives myself and my family direction and lets me know why I am here and where I came from and where I am going. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints allows me to make sacred covenants with my Father in Heaven so that I can be sealed to my family for time and all eternity. There is no other way this can happen except through the power of the Priesthood. I have a testimony of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and that God the father and his son Jesus Christ appeared to the young boy Joseph Smith and that he translated the gold plates by the power of the Holy Ghost and the results of this is the Book of Mormon. And that the Book of Mormon is another testimony of Jesus Christ and of his people in the America's.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith through my example and by keeping myself free from things that would do harm to my body such as alcohol, tobacco and drugs. I have worked in my ward in leadership positions. My family and I attend church every week and learn more about the gospel.
