Hi I'm Austin.

I'm from Texas, I like basketball, and I love my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the third of four kids born into a great family who I love very much. Family has always meant a lot to me; they support me, strengthen me and help me every day of my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I read and prayed about the Book of Mormon and received an answer that it is true. I can make a promise that anyone who sincerely reads and prays about the Book of Mormon will come to know that it is true, just as I did.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing my best to be more like Christ every day. Following Jesus Christ isn't just a sometimes thing, rather it applies to us every day and in every situation we are faced with. As I read the Bible and Book of Mormon and pray daily I am able to learn more about Jesus Christ and how I can be more like him. This makes me want to have more love, compassion, and gratitude in my life just as he did. Like all people I'm not perfect, but because of the Atonement of Jesus Christ, his suffering for all people, I know that I can be forgiven and be washed clean of my sins. I do my best to overcome sin and be better every day. One more way I have been able to live my faith is by serving a mission. I am currently serving a two-year mission in the great state of Montana where I get the opportunity everyday to spread the word of God. I am very grateful that I have the opportunity to share those things that I hold dear with others so they can experience the joy that I have.  

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Austin.
 Missionaries will talk to you about about Jesus Christ, our Heavenly Father's plan for us, and how truth has been restored to the earth. They will not force anything upon you, rather they will invite you to find out for yourself if what they have to say is true. Show more Show less

What is the Word of Wisdom that Mormons talk about?

Austin.
 The Word of Wisdom is like a guide to healthy living given to us by a prophet of God. To me it is also a guide to true happiness. It tells us that we should avoid alcohol, tobacco, coffee, tea, drugs and other addicting substances. People often tell me I am restricted because of the Word of Wisdom, but in my mind it makes me free. I am not bound by any addictions that would otherwise hold me back. It is a great blessing in my life. Show more Show less
