Hi I'm Max

I grew up in Northeast Georgia. I love playing and watching sports. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of 5 boys! I love sports! I play basketball, but I also like to watch all the Atlanta sports teams play, including the Braves, Hawks, Thrashers and Falcons! I am currently going to college and studying to become a sports journalist! I am an Eagle Scout in the Boy Scout organization, and I graduated as an honor student from high school. I just returned from serving a two year mission for the church in Ogden, Utah helping other people come unto Christ!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have learned about Joseph Smith and the amazing experience he had and I know its true! I know our Heavenly Father loves us and wants to bless us! He wanted to restore His gospel to the Earth again, that way our lives will be for the better! He gives us commandments to be able to help us understand the importance of His gospel and the opportunity that we have to be able to return and live with Him and our families again one day! As I served my mission and was able to teach people about the Restoration of the gospel, I could see the gospel change people's lives for the better and I could see the Spirit help people to make correct decisions in their lives, especially the wonderful decision to choose to be baptized by someone who holds the proper priesthood power from God! I know this church is true and I am thankful for the knowledge I have of it and that my Heavenly Father blesses not only my life but my familys lives too! I know as we follow our Father in Heaven we can one day return to live with Him, which should be something all of us want to achieve one day!

How I live my faith

Well, here in my ward, the Cornelia ward, on northeast Georgia, I am an assistant in helping the missionary work move forward and teaching people to gospel of Jesus Chirst here! I am also a leader in the Cub Scouts and try to teach 8 year olds and help them achieve different requirements in the scouting program! Since I have returned from a mission recently, I also have been assigned to speak in different wards in the surrounding area about my mission and some of the awesome experiences that took place!
