Hi I'm Thayne

I love the outdoors. I am a mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving a mission for the church. I am called to serve in the Montana Billings Mission. I love my mission. I graduated from high school in Utah. I went to a year of college. I am planning on majoring in civil or mechanical engineering. I love the outdoors, hunting and ridding four wheelers are my favorite, but they are even better with my dad and brother. I am the oldest of four children, two boys and two girls.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. My family has gone for as long as i can remember. i remember getting ready for my baptizm when i was 8 years old. I talked to the bishop about it and still remember sitting in his office and him asking me if this is what i wanted to do. i remember telling him yes. but it probably wasnt until i was 18 turning 19 getting ready to come on a mission that i really truly questioned if the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was the true living church of god. As i did just as Joseph Smith did and prayed to my Heavenly Father to ask if this was the right desicion, i did not have and angel appear to me or anything that knocked me off my feet. However i did feel my saviors love so much so that i could not deny that this is Christ's church. This is the church with the fulness of the gospel. The church with the power and authority to act in gods name. The church that is guided by a prophet called of god. Everytime that i pray i may not recieve my answer right then but i know that if i pray with a sincere heart and faith in christ that i will recieve an answer to my prayers.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to care for those around me. Right now i am serving the people in Montana. At home i was involved with boy scouts and became an Eagle Scout. I helped with many service projects at home and now that i am away i still enjoy doing so. I just recently helped Habitat for Humanity by volunteering on a home that was just completed.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

The way i have come to know heavenly father is by seeking him out. through scripture studie and pray. as i do so the holy ghost helps me feel his love. Show more Show less
