Hi I'm Colby Vranes

I love my wife, love sports, work with student athletes, I'm a Mormon and love every bit of it!

About Me

I work as an Academic Advisor and Learning Specialist in the Athletics Department at the University of Utah. I love my job, spending time and getting to know such great young people from various backgrounds and places. I graduated from Seattle Pacific University and plan on returning to school for a Masters Degree. Other than working I love to be active and just live life to the fullest.

Why I am a Mormon

The sense of peace and hope that the gospel of Jesus Christ can give is immeasurable. We live in a world that is getting harder and harder to take. However, the fullness of the Christ's gospel has all the answers to help us through. That is why I love it! I am always so happy and positive about things because I know what I'm really reaching for. Knowing that Christ is directing his church today just puts a smile on my face and joy in heart!

How I live my faith

I strive to live His teachings everyday. I went to Guatemala to teach and serve those wonderful loving people for two years. Now I am doing all sorts of things I use the knowledge and influences the truth has had in my life and try to influence others to just trust themselves and what they are feeling. I just want people to feel the joy I feel from this gospel! It gives new life!
