Hi I'm Houston

I like uni-cycling, love the doing anything outdoors or with my friends, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a missionary for the Church in Canada at this time in my life so all of my efforts are put here. I love Uni-cycling. Most other things that I enjoy are centered around my friends. So you can usually find me doing whatever they are doing whether it be going into the city or just sitting around a camp fire talking away the night. I really enjoy listening to music, and going to small concerts with my friends. I was on my city's youth council, and have taken many history, politics, and biology classes. I am not the best at Ceramics, but i love giving it my best and seeing the cool results.

Why I am a Mormon

The reason that I am a member of this church used to be because I knew that the principles found within the gospel were true. I knew it wasn't healthy to go the way of the world, and get involved in places that would lead me down wrong paths. Now though I am a Mormon because I have gained for myself a spiritual witness that the Book of Mormon is Gods word. It points me to Christ and this His Church. I grew up in the church hearing that if the Book of Mormon was really God's word then the rest of the Church had to be true, because by knowing that it was true I knew that Joseph Smith was a Prophet called by God, and that the rest of what the Church taught was true. Reading the Book of Mormon, really desiring to know of its truth, and then asking my Father in Heaven gave me a very personal and sacred answer that it is His word. Knowing it is His word I could trust what it was telling me about how to come unto Christ. Putting the things that I have learned about how to follow Christ from the book into my daily life, and the principles found in the book really giving me true happiness has proved to me again and again that this is true!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to help others as much as possible. There are so many people in this world who need just a little extra kindness in order to feel the saviors love and influence in their lives. As a disciple of Jesus Christ I want to be there to help others out as much as I can. It makes me feel so good to help others, and it lifts my burdens as well. Another way in which I love and live my faith is by repenting daily. We all make mistakes each day. Trying to become better makes you feel better. When I rely upon the atonement to improve or overcome faults of mine I feel the saviors love, and that in turn makes me want to spread that love to others. One last way in which I live my faith is by striving to live my covenants, and magnify my calling and priesthood. In the church we are given opportunities and the responsibility of loving others in certain ways through our callings. I love preaching and sharing the gospel with non members and less active members as part of my duty to God. When I do this on tool of live my covenants I know that I am on the right path to returning to live with my savior. I LOVE THIS GOSPEL OF CHRIST!!!!!!
