Hi I'm CC

I'm a firefighter, a longboarder, a missionary, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love fighting wildland fires, longboarding, skiing, doing anything that gets the blood pumping. Right now I'm serving as a Mormon missionary and loving it. I'm a son and older brother and love being both.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised as a mormon, but like most people do, had to figure things out for myself. After spending a lot of time away from home, working as a firefighter, I really started to wonder if what I believed was true. I felt at a crossroads and knew I could choose 2 paths. Keep living the life I was living and think that the world could make me happy, or figure out if maybe what I'd been told my whole life was true and that maybe following Christ would bring me a different better joy. Long story short, after a lot of praying and working to get an answer, it still took a long time to get an answer, but one day reading the Book of Mormon, I came across a passage that depicted the Savior, Jesus Christ inviting people to come and feel the scars in his hands and feet, to show that he did die as Savior of this world. I've never felt a deeper love in my life, then when I realized that Jesus Christ did know me and love me enough to die for me. Since that day I've tried to do what I can to help invite that love and caring into other's lives. I know for myself that Jesus Christ died in order to help me return to live with him. That knowledge has changed my life and its thanks to the Book of Mormon and the Bible that I fully understand that.

How I live my faith

Right now, I am serving as a full time missionary away from home for 2 years. Teaching and inviting people to come unto Christ and understand all that he taught and lived. It has strengthened my testimony to see people's lives change as they come to understand WHO they are and what God has in plan for them.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

CC
Through action. Faith is one of the best action words I know. It is a common misbelief that faith is only believing in something. The scriptures teach us that our faith without works is dead. It is only through acting on our beliefs and doing all we can to follow and obey Jesus Christ's commandments that we can really increase our faith in Jesus Christ. And that is when we get to see the power of faith in our lives. Show more Show less
