Hi I'm Mitchell

I help others, I'm quiet, I love movies, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I'm from Idaho and was born and raised there. We moved away quite a few times as a family, but always seemed to find our way back. I'm the oldest of 8 kids and love my family very much. There's nothing that has brought me greater joy than being with my family and the memories that I have of them. I like reading books and playing video games. Watching movies is always fun and I pretty much hang out with friends and family. I like all sorts of sports and music, and love listening to music. I also play the violin and that's where my love of music began. I'm going to be going to college, but I don't know what for yet, but I love learning new things and trying to figure stuff out. Currently I'm serving a mission in Phoenix Arizona and loving it. There's nothing better that I could be doing at this time in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I've been a member for quite some time, but it has really only been through my own personal study that I've come to realize the truth of the things that I believe and through the witnesses I have received myself. I know that the things I believe are true through study of the scriptures and through personal prayer. One of the greatest blessings I've seen from being a member is that I know that my family can be together forever. I understand why I'm here and have an eternal perspective in mind of the choices that I make. I know that Heavenly Father has a plan that is perfect and everything has been thought out, more than I can comprehend. It helps me to get through the tough times by knowing that there's something better to come, and also by knowing that if Jesus Christ can overcome even the greatest of obstacles, that nothing is impossible to me or those around me if we have faith in him. I know that the gospel of Jesus Christ was restored through the Prophet Joseph Smith and that we can know if this is true by reading and praying about the Book of Mormon, which is another witness that Jesus is the Christ. I know that without Jesus Christ and what He did for me I would be hopelessly lost, but am truly grateful for Him with all my soul.

How I live my faith

Well, right now I'm currently serving a mission and sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with others. It's very enjoyable and the best thing I could be doing right now. Basically for 2 years I am away from home so that I can help others come to know Jesus Christ and His restored gospel.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

We can increase our faith in Jesus Christ by following the teachings He has given us. Only through obedience to the commandments that we are given can we truly grow in faith and gain our own personal witness. We are promised blessings for keeping His commandments multiple times throughout the scriptures and it's up to us to see if the promises are real. Show more Show less
