Hi I'm Zach

I'm a sports fanatic, statistician, baller, and a goof, I love my family and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am a college student, planning on getting a MS in Statistics, and I love anything to do with sports, especially basketball. I have 4 little brothers who I love to death and a wonderful mom and dad who I would do anything for. I love to mess around and just have fun with other people. Life is a rollercoaster, but I love rollercoasters! So bring it!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as a Mormon, but there came a time when I had to decide for myself what I wanted and what my relationship with God was. I always looked for those big spiritual enlightening moments to be converted one way or another. I don't remember the exact day or time, but one day it all just clicked, the slow build up of the Lord's tender mercies in my life helped me realize where He wanted me to be and since that realization I've been striving to serve the Lord as best as I can. The restoration of His gospel is something that I'd be lost without having it in my life and I know that He has a purpose for me and for all of God's children, and if we're willing to follow, we can live with Heavenly Father, and Jesus Christ again in the next life.

How I live my faith

I want people to know what I believe by what I do, not what I say. Someone can talk all they want, but unless they walk the walk, in my opinion, it doesn't mean they really feel that way. I really try to follow the example of my Dad who is my hero and I know that he is striving to follow the same person that I am, in Jesus Christ, which truly makes life have a purpose. Doing so doesn't mean that I can't have fun either, God gave me a personality, and I'm going to use it! I love living the gospel and feeling of God's love as often as possible, and sharing that love with others through thoughts, feelings, laughs, trials, and everything else that shapes us. My faith truly helps me live life to its fullest.

Why do some call Mormonism a cult?

Zach
Anyone who calls the Mormon Church a cult usually hasn't ever had any interaction with the people who are in the church. In the dictionary the definition of a cult is a group of people who believe in something. So by definition, almost any club, church, or group is a cult. I truly believe that those who call us a cult is just a label people put on us who don't agree with our beliefs and faith, its unfortunate, and I wish people would just come and visit with us so they can know what we are really like.

What is being a Mormon like?

Zach
Being a member of the Mormon Church rocks!! Some may think we have a lot of rules or standards, but when someone really tries to live the principles taught in the gospel, it helps their lives so much. As members of the Church we have such a solid foundation that helps with balance and clarity in life, its something that only God could have put on this earth. Show more Show less
