Hi I'm Spencer

And I'm proud to be a Mormon!

About Me

Ok here we go. I am from southwest Missouri and am the youngest of 7 children. (5 boys 2 girls). I grew up on a cattle ranch and attended a small school. Iv always loved sports, mostly Football, but I also played basketball, baseball and ran track. I enjoy the outdoors and spending time with my family. Im currently serving a full-time mission for the church in the Utah St. George Mission, so its weird typing stuff about myself because I dont do anything except for missionary work! But its all good because I love it. I did a semster of college b4 I left for my mission, and hope to attend college here in utah after my mission.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I mormon??? Well, I was born into the church, but I still had to become converted. I choose to be Mormon because it makes me happy. The church focuses on the life and ministry of our savior Jesus Christ. Without Jesus Christ their would be no hope. We know Christ was our perfect example, through him his church was established by giving priesthood authority to his apostles. Which allowed them to preach the gospel and perform saving ordinances and miracles. Later Christ performed the Atonement, starting in Gethsemane, to the cross, then 3 days later being resurrected. Through this loving act we all have the opportunity to be forgiven of our sins through his atonement. We are capable of overcoming all things. Over time Christ left the earth and his apostles were all killed, an event known as "the Great Apostasy". All authority was lost. We know that it is only through Christ and his Church that enables us to return to live with God. Over time when the time was right Jesus Christs church was re-established or restored through the Prophet Joseph Smith. We have all blessings available to us today, just as the people of old in the bible. The Book of Mormon is proof of this. I know the Book of Mormon is true and Joseph Smith is a true prophet. Because of this knowledge is why I choose to be Mormon.

How I live my faith

As I said earlier Im a Missionary for the Church. On my mission I do my best to bring others closer to Jesus Christ by sharing what I know with others. The Church has blessed me so much in my life. I want others to experience the same happiness and joy that I have felt in my life. After my mission I plan to continue to progress in the gospel by doing all of the small and simple things. I hope to obtain a calling to help me stay busy and to help me to continue to learn and grow. Being on a mission has changed my life and has helped me to see where I need to improve and how I can make others happy. I know each of us can make a difference.
