My name is Shannon Edgerton. I am a convert of 21 years. I graduated from BYU with a bachelor degree in psychology and a minor in biology. I enjoy reading, eating, exercising and outdoor recreation. I especially enjoy these activities with my family. I was married to my husband Chad in the Boise Idaho Temple and we have 6 boys that keep us young and busy. I have recently started a new phase in my life as my oldest son has graduated high school and my youngest son has started kindergarten. My oldest was just called to serve in the Pittsburg, Pennsylvania Mission.
I love learning. I especially love learning about the Gospel of Jesus Christ and studying the scriptures. I have found a new love for family history and with all my kids at school I now have more time to enjoy the temple. Each day of my life I try to live up to this quote from President Monson:
“Brothers and sisters, my sincere prayer is that we may adapt to the changes in our lives, that we may realize what is most important, that we may express our gratitude always and thus find joy in the journey.”
