Hi I'm Morgan

I play the drums, I am married to the most beautiful girl in all of Wyoming, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a student in Wyoming and am going into Human Development. I served a 2 year mission in the depths of Oklahoma. Where I served alongside other Christians who found joy in serving others. I play the drums, and can play enough of the guitar to make it seem like I can play well (this is how I got the most beautiful girl). I love to play sports, especially ultimate Frisbee or track. I love coaching, especially little league sports. I build furniture and other wood working items, and when I have free time, I rebuild cars. I have a very bold personality and really enjoy meeting new people.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I was raised in the church my entire childhood, I would say that my own personal conversion took place my senior year of High School. After deciding that I didn't want to be a part of any church anymore and not really finding answers anywhere else, I decided to myself that if there was a God He wasn't making it very easy for us to know if He really was there. I was tired of pretending to be happy, I was tired of putting on a face that I was pleased with how things were going with my life, I was tired of not knowing, so I choose to quit the whole 'act'. After a suggestion from a friend, I choose to try praying again, when I prayed I didn't receive any sort of huge answer. Wanting a "Hollywood" experience, where I felt some over whelming power, but it never came. Instead, I was naturally a lot happier, without anything being different from my normal routine, other than the prayer. I continued to feel this daily peace and joy as I prayed routinely. I no longer have to put on a mask, I no longer have to fake a smile, I no longer have to pretend, for I am now truly happy. as i continued, I felt my personal relationship with my Heavenly Father become so much more real. Almost tangible, like I knew with all my heart that He was listening. Aside from the logical conversion, my testimony is forever anchored in how I feel when I pray each night, and the hope i can be with my wife and children forever.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by sharing what I love with others. I feel like the 'fuel' that drives anyone to be dedicated to something, wither it is a sport, or a club, or anything is worth learning about. Like why one would be so dedicated to a sport to spend hours a day, to this one activity? I am so curious about those sorts of things, what fuels peoples passions. My passion is serving and teaching about God, and I want people to know and understand why I served a mission for 2 years, why I go to church for 3 hours on Sunday, and why I read my scriptures every day. So I invite people to church with me because I feel like you will never truly know who some is until you know their passions. I also serve by visiting members of our congregation weekly to see if they need anything, but service is not limited to members of our congregation, I visit some older couples routinely and they help me more than I help them. I have taught the Gospel Sunday School classes, designed for those who are trying to learn the fundamentals of our beliefs wither you are a member or not. These class has helped me loads in trying to increase my knowledge about the Bible and of the Book of Mormon. Currently I also substitute teach early morning seminary (Scripture based classes for high school aged kids), and oh my goodness it is a blast!
