Hi I'm Shaun

I grew up in Chico, CA I love wakeboarding and Football, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have 3 sisters and 1 brother. I'm number 4 of 5 I have a little sister behind me. I'm 19 years. I went to Southern Virginia University for a year and played football there. i love living life and laughing. I love to spend time with my family and friends and being around people. I enjoy football, acting, and wakeboarding I love being active but I do also enjoy just relaxing and watching a movie or playing video games. I love sports games but I'm a huge fan of anything Mario especially super smash bros. All in all anything that involves fun, I'm there.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I love the Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day saints! It helps answer so many questions in my life and gives me hope to continue to press forward everyday. I was raised in a Mormon family both my parents are converts to the church. I have chosen to continue to follow the gospel because I have read the book of Mormon for myself and I know that every page testifies of Jesus Christ and that it is true! I know That Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God that he saw God and Jesus Christ in a grove of trees and that he was called to restore Christ's church; the same one that Christ himself established. I know the book of Mormon works with the bible to bring us the fullness of Christ's teachings. I know Where I came from, why I am here and where I'm going after this life, because of the book of Mormon! this has brought me so much peace and comfort in my life. These simple truths did not come all at once but after years of living the gospel putting my faith in Jesus Christ. It was over time that I came to realize that every time I went to church and every time I read the book of Mormon and every time I learned about Joseph smith or about God's plan for us i felt peaceful and happy and I know this was the spirit telling me that it was true! There is nothing that makes more sense to me than this church and that's why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in a variety of ways. One awesome thing about our church is that everyone plays a role in building up the kingdom of God. I have served in leadership positions for different groups of young men while being a young man myself. I helped organize service projects, fun activities, and even faith building activities for the boys my age to do. Another way Is that I have the opportunity to be a home teacher where I get to visit different families in the local congregation once a month share a message with them to help build there faith in Jesus Christ, and then offer to always be available for anything they may need. Another way is through my church there was a big emphasis on Boy Scouts of America. I am currently an Eagle Scout, and for my Eagle Project I put in a flag pole for a families in need center. To sum it up I would say the best way I live my faith is by serving others. It has taught me to think of others before myself, and in the book of Mormon there is a scripture in Mosiah chapter 2 verse 17 that says, "when ye are in the service of your fellow beings, ye are only in the service of your God." It is because of this that I serve people, and share with others how much happiness and peace this church has brought me and how I know it can bless the lives of everyone.
