Hi I'm Montana Baja

I grew up in Layton, Utah. I love music, the gym, hanging out with friends. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hey I'm Montana, I have lived in Utah all my life until recently. I love school and education! I am currently studying Internation Law and Diplomacy but I have also been an architecture, and Chemical Engeeniring major so needless to say I kind of strugle with finding what exactly I want to be, But I will figure it out one day. I hold education very high in my life and want to get a Ph.D at Columbia University in New York City. I am Mexican and American, and I love the Hispanic culture. When I finish my education I would love to be an Ambassador to Mexico and practice law there or open up a business down there. I love music and just hanging out with friends. I come from a big family 5 brothers and sisters and my mom and dad. Im Montana and I'm a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the LDS chruch. My mom Is a very faithful member and my dad is catholic. My father let me be apart of the LDS church and has been very suportive. But for me I fell away from the gosple. I began living a life that was contridictory to LDS standards. But what soon followed was pain and sorrow. I remember being in my bed late at night crying, wondering how my life got so bad, why I hurt so much... Why I was so upset with my life. I lived that way for 2 more years, with that pain in my heart. But God knows each of us and what we need in our lives. I had three great friends who were members of the chruch. They were always happy no matter what happend in their lives, and I wanted that happiness they had. All I wanted to do was be with them becuase I liked who I was when I was with them. One of those friends was opening his mission call, and I went. When I was there I felt so good, I felt something I hadnt felt in a really long time, Happy. I wanted that for myself so badly. That was the day I recognized what they had that I didnt, and it has been right in front of me the whole time. The Chruch of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, The Gospel of Jesus Christ, That is what made them so happy. That is what I was missing from my life. The next day I picked up my Book of Mormon after two years and truly studied, searching for happiness, and prayed all day long. I couldnt put it down, for the first time in years I could feel the spirit in my life, I felt the Love of my father in heaven, and that he had never forgot about me, I just had forgot about him. He was waiting for me to come back with his arms open to receive me. Later that night when I was praying to truly know if the Book of Mormon was true I had a powerful spiritual conformation that is very personal to me. I know this is the chruch of Jesus Christ. I know that this gospel will bring you more happiness then you can imagen. becuase it changed my life. Im never going to lose it again.

How I live my faith

Right now I am on a mission to preach this gosple. I show how much faith I have for this gosple by giving up two years of my life in the service of my god and his son Jesus Christ. I try to be the most Christ like I can be. I know the best way to live my faith is through my actions. I try to help others as much as I can and make there load a little lighter. Simple acts of Service go a long way.
