Hi I'm Zak

I make Long Boards. I'm a skater. I love to have fun. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Oregon. I love playing sports. Growing up I've always played some sport. I started out with baseball then went to football in high school. I just love sports in general. I may not be very good at some but I still enjoy being out there and having fun. I worked in a skate shop making Long Boards, or skateboards. It was a blast. I love Long boarding. There's just something about being out on the open road with just you and your board. Its a sense of freedom I suppose. My friends and I all would go out and skate together and just have a blast. I am serving a full time mission for the Church in the Minnesota Minneapolis Mission and I love it. Its such a blessing to be here and to meet so many new people and really get to know them. Serving a mission has been one of the best choices in my life. After the mission though I plan on going to college, but I'm not sure where at the moment.

Why I am a Mormon

Well i grew up in the Church. So i guess i have always been a Mormon. I always believed what i was taught but I didn't gain a true testimony of the Church until i was on my mission. Then it pretty much hit me like a two by four. Serving a mission was always kind of expected of me so i decided to go. I never fully read the Book of Mormon until I was on my mission. That's when i really felt the Holy Ghost testify to me that this is true. Ever since then my testimony has grown and grown. I love the Gospel so much that i find true joy and happiness by sharing it and seeing other people experience it for themselves too.

How I live my faith

How I live my faith is by keeping the Commandments of God. I study my scriptures every morning. I go to church each Sunday and I try and help people come closer to our Savior Jesus Christ. Being on a mission gives me the advantage of living my faith everyday. And lastly I try to serve others as much as I can.
