Hi I'm Zach

I grew up in Texas. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 24 years old. I am married to a wonderful woman. I am in dental school. When I am not in school I love to play basketball, read, and spend time with family.

Why I am a Mormon

The gospel of Jesus Christ gives me peace of mind. I also feel closer to my Savior by reading the Book of Mormon.

How I live my faith

Every day is a chance for me to do better than the day before. I try to treat people as the Savior would. I pray by myself and with my wife, and I study the scriptures. I attend church meetings every Sunday. I love the time at church. It gives me an opportunity to evaluate my life and be sure that I am coming closer to my Savior. I also have the chance to serve the members and those in our communities through different assignments given to me.

Can husband and wife be together forever? Do you believe that families will live together in heaven?

Zach
Yes! I love my wife dearly, and I could not imagine heaven without her. I know that families can be together forever. When my wife and I were married, we were married in a temple. It is in the temple that we can be sealed to our families for time and all eternity. So when we have children, they will be sealed to us. This sealing applies not only to my wife, but also to my parents and siblings. This concept of forever families brings me a great sense of peace. I had a little sister die when I was really young. The loss was crushing to my family, but it was during that experience that I felt the confirmation in my heart that these teachings were true. I know that I will see my sister again and that she will be a part of my family. Show more Show less
