Hi I'm Pierce

I'm smiling. I live in Arizona. I love my life. I'm a Mormon. :

About Me

I am 20 years old and I have lived in Virginia for 19 years of that. I grew up right outside Washington, DC and that was pretty cool. I had a lot of good friends up there and then I moved down south to much smaller town. It was tough adjusting to a smaller town that was much more spread out, but with my family, we always made things work. I love the outdoors. I love hiking, going and exploring but I have a great time wherever I am and with whoever I am with. Right now I am a missionary i Phoenix!. I love it. I get to learn about Christ and share that wonderful blessing of him and how he blesses and has changed my life. He has given me understanding of what this life is all about and how I can do better and how I can repent when I do mess up. and like everyone, I do. That great message that brings hope and comfort, is a huge part of my life. 

Why I am a Mormon

Its true and I have felt that it is. We can all know for ourselves. I had been told that all my life, having grown up in the church, but i hadnt tried it. There have been soo many things that living the gospel has/had done for me like, keeping me clear of drugs, alchohol, other influences, but never had I gotten a true and clear answer whether the Church was true, but I had never asked! So I did. I was reading in the car as my brother and I were headed to play an intense game of nerf with these other guys and i took out my scriptures and read. My brother was playing his music pretty loud, but i still felt calmness and peace. I prayed as i felt these feelings and asked if the Book of Mormon was true. The feelings i had been feeling intensified and I gained that answer finally. Pretty tight. I have been able to share this joy with other people because I am a missionary serving in Arizona. The oppotunity to share that Christ himself has brought back HIS church through another prophet today Joseph Smith is powerful.  

How I live my faith

I am a missionary, I am a brother, I am a loving son, I am a Believer in Christ. I show it through my actions that I believe in him. I love those around me and I smile with the blessings that have been given to me. I love life.

What is being a Mormon like?

 WONDERFUL! There is a fantastic peace that I feel knowing that I am a part of a church that I fully believe to be true. Its pretty clear when you join us for a church meeting or for an activity that we are a close knit group. I love that I have people to rely on other than my immediate family. I have a second family that looks out for me. Holy cow the idea that if i didnt have good neighbors that I couldnt get a ladder or have someone to babysit or someone to watch our animals. The little things in life that you might need are there because we all take care of each other. BUT we also try to take care of others around us. I have some great memories of just going out and serving people in need. When growing up, school was sometimes tough with kids giving me a hard time because I didn't cuss, smoke, drink, date till i was 16, and other things but in the end it was completely worth it. Being a part of ths is Church is so rewarding not only because we need people and supports to help us in this life, but also for the undeniable truth that our churchs focus is on Christ. HE is the center and his doctrine is what it taught. I love it. Show more Show less
