Hi I'm Spencer

I'm a first year law school student at a Catholic Jesuit University. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a dad of two wonderful kids. I currently attend law school at Creighton University School of Law in Omaha, Ne. I enjoy spending time with my family, helping others, documentaries, and admiring the creativity of people of all walks of life. My family and I are especially interested in food from all around the world.

Why I am a Mormon

As children of God, we are all connected in a way that is quite literally otherworldly. It is this connection that allows us to show compassion for others despite our lack of personal acquaintance. This care and love for our neighbors is something that Jesus Christ taught while on the earth. He gave freely of his love without respect to any defining characteristics that the world uses to classify people. Indeed he administered freely to the most temporally and spiritually needy. In his infinite atonement, the Savior offers his saving grace to all who will come unto him. This same method is followed in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The humanitarian efforts of the church are based in Christ's teachings and are directed at providing as best as possible for all of God's children. Likewise, the doctrine of Jesus Christ and his atonement are available for all who will hear the message through The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Following the example of Jesus Christ is a testament to me that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is led by him whose name it bears. My devotion to Jesus Christ and my love for my fellow people on earth are reasons I continue to be a member of his church.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by striving to love everybody I come into contact with. This is difficult sometimes. It begins in the home. Not a day goes by that I don't thank God for my wife and my children. Even though they see the worst of me, and I of them, at the end of the day, we love each other. This type of familial love should extend to all the people we meet. While I currently am without an opportunity to serve within my church, I have been blessed to teach Sunday school classes to adults and high school age students in the past. I've also had the opportunity to be an integral part of missionary efforts both as a full time missionary and as a local liaison between the congregation and the missionaries.
