Hi I'm Zach

Just a regular guy and a Mormon.

About Me

I'll soon be going into my Sophomore year at a local University. I like to play sports, especially basketball and football. I have played the cello since I can remember, though it has been hard to play at all in the past 3 years. I try to involve myself in a lot of activities and I love spending time with family and friends. I also enjoy traveling and have had the opportunity to visit many beautiful places from Hawaii to Argentina.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm an active Mormon because I have always known that this Church is the same Church that Jesus Christ established when He was on the earth. It is not just another church, but it is His church that has been restored in our day. I came to know this through study and most importantly through prayer. As I have done these things I have felt the Holy Ghost come into my life through feelings of peace and love. I am motivated to serve in the church for the love and gratitude I feel towards my Savior because of what He did and does for me today.

How I live my faith

I live my faith daily by reading the scriptures and praying. I attend church weekly. I keep the commandments that Jesus Christ taught and has revealed through his prophets. Currently I am serving as a missionary and so I have the opportunity to go out each day and find people that want to come closer to Christ. We invite them to take the basic steps that will help them find happiness in this life and eternal life in the life to come. We invite them to be baptized to receive the forgiveness we all need and I feel a great need to do it because I have felt that forgiveness in my life and I know how much we all need it.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

The family is so important because families were instituted by God. The family is the basic unit of society and when families succeed then individuals and nations succeed. My family is so important to me because they are a support that I can always count on. When I return home each day I know it is a place where I will find peace and love. Show more Show less
