Hi I'm Christopher

I love the out doors, scouting, chess ballroom dance and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in California but mostly grew up in Utah, where my family currently lives. I'm the oldest of 7 siblings, who mostly still live at home with my parents. My brother Ryan and I are both currently serving full time missions on opposite sides of the world. I pretty much like to do anything outdoors: sports, hiking, rock climbing, etc, and I also really enjoy a good board game. I'm also a ballroom dancer and plan to pursue dancing after my mission both competitively and socially. I plan to attend college and go into engineering. I consider myself a pretty happy person. I like to sometimes just have a good time with friends doing whatever. I really value people, especially friendships and I just want to be friends with everyone.

Why I am a Mormon

My ancestors on my father's side came across the plains as Mormon Pioneers. My mother and her parents found the missionaries in Los Angeles when she was nine years old. They read and prayed about the Book of Mormon and found it to be true, and have been faithful to the answer they received from God ever since. Since that time many of my family have been shown the gospel as restored through the Prophet Joseph Smith and many have also received special witnesses that these are true. Even though I was born into a family who already were members of the Church of Jesus Christ, like each of them I had to receive my own divine witness telling me all this is true. Mine have presented themselves over time. I remember several isolated and sacred times in my life when I felt God giving me my answer. One was at a youth activity when I felt deep within myself that God loved me individually and we had a special, personal relationship. Another was while my brother bore his testimony in church and I felt a burning coming over my whole self from within. I see countless examples every day of God's love and blessing His children through the Gospel of Jesus Christ and His church. I know He loves His children and is actively blessing each of our lives.

How I live my faith

I'm serving a full time mission.
