Hi I'm Seth

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the goofy middle child of nine kids. Currently looking for a job to start schooling. I love to have fun which includes dancing like a crazy person, playing basketball, paintball, hanging out with friends, watching movies, recently tried BMX and I think everyone should try it, it is so much fun, I also love to climb things.(walls, trees, rocks ect.)

Why I am a Mormon

When I was in my early teens I just thought I was mormon just because my parents are mormon. I was active but only because that's what was expected of me but as I got older I feel away from the church a little bit and started doing things that weren't highly thought of by my mormon friends and stopped hanging out with them. Within the last couple of months I started coming back to church because I felt a part of my life missing and I couldn't figure out what it was until I came back. All of my old friends were either on missions or out in Utah for school but I met a new bunch of friends and they are a great influence on me and I don't think they know how much I look up to them and how grateful I am for their friendship. Coming back to the church made me realize how amazing this church truly is how much happiness it brought into my life. Being raised in the church made me over look the little things because it was just expected of me. Prayer is a way we can communicate with our Heavenly Father and we can ask for guidance and for blessings but even though they might not come right away or the way we are looking for, it will come. I wasn't always a good member of this church and didn't always do the right thing. But I know now with a surety that this church is true and that I have a Heavenly Father that loves me for me even though all the wrong I've done in my life. I have an elder brother, Jesus Christ, who atoned for my sins so that I might return to the presence of my Heavenly Father. I am so happy to be back and I feel so much closer to my Heavenly Father already. I do slip up at times but that's why we have the bless of repentance, we should avoid using it but we are human and we mess up but through the atonement we can repent and be cleansed of those sins and move on with our lives. I love this church and I love my Heavenly Father and my brother Jesus Christ and so grateful for them.

How I live my faith

I guess I live faith by being as active as possible. I don't have a calling in anything right now but I try to help out as much as possible even though I may not know what I'm doing. I try to get others involved too, to make their time more pleasant and more meaningful to them. I try to be an example for the people I'm around. I couldn't function without this church, it is so intertwined into my life at this point that I don't know what I would do without it.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

The best way to come closer to our Heavenly Father is the same way to come to know anyone else, you must talk to him. Prayer to your Heavenly Father and live his commandments. Show more Show less
