Hi I'm Austen

I'm a Mormon, and I love to learn

About Me

I a student studying Mechanical Engineering. I love math and physics and science in general. I love to read and write. But most of all I like to be with my family, my parents, siblings, and especially my nieces and nephews.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church. However, like everyone I always had the agency to leave, or not follow what my parents. However I always felt deep down that God existed and he was my father. This knowledge helped me at the hardest times of my life. At a particularly difficult time in my life I read the Book of Mormon for the first time in completeness. As I read I felt my life change. Furthermore I prayed about it and felt in my hear that it was right. I have known ever sense that being a strong member of the church was the right thing to do. to see a more full testimony go to my facebook account and look at my note entitled "The Constants of My Life."

How I live my faith

I attend my ward each Sunday, where I do my best to fulfill my calling as a teacher. I love teaching and learning about the gospel. Outside of church I do my best to participate in regular service in my community and in the world.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Austen
No. We believe it is a commandment for all worthy young men to serve missions. However every young man is free to choose to serve or not. Young women are welcome to serve if they desire, but it is not a commandment and is purely a personal decision for them. I chose to serve a mission, and am so glad I did. It was one of the greatest times and experiences of my life. Show more Show less

How does the Church finance its operations?

Austen
The church is able to finance its operations through the generous voluntary donations of its members. As members of the church we believe in the principle of Tithing presented in the Old Testament See Malachi 3:8-12. We pay ten percent of our income to the Lord via the church. Show more Show less
