Hi I'm Christopher M.

I'm a 6 foot 10 Mormon MaughanStar

About Me

I was born in Alberta Canada and when I was ten my family moved to Arizona. I have two wonderful parents, an older sister and a younger brother, there all my best friends. I just finished serving a two year mission for the church in the Raleigh North Carolina area (Smithfield, Roxboro, Rocky Mount, Pembroke, and Roanoke Rapids) my sister also just got back from her mission in Chicago. I love basketball, paintballing, Star Wars, Camping, board games and sharing this great gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because… well I want to be and I know that it is what I need to be. I have always liked the idea that I can continue to get better and as a Latter Day Saint I know that the reason I’m on the earth is so that I can get better and learn as I live. God and Jesus Christ have given me ways to become better through the Commandments. There is only one way to get to Heavenly Father and that is his way, and the fact that practice does not make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect and that perfect practice to become perfect is by living the way God wants me to and that’s by living the best I can, and realizing when I do mess up I need repent then try again. We can always be working towards perfection and happiness. I want to be happy and I know that God’s way is the only way. That is way I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Well the best I can think of is by going out and sharing the joy and happiness I have gained with others by being a missionary. My sister is also a missionary and I know that there is no greater joy in life than by living the gospel and following Jesus Christ. I feel that most of the time it comes down to the small things like reading the scriptures, praying and going to church which I think could solve most of the problems in the world. Even Jesus started out doing the small things and grew. I know I want to follow him and grow in the way he wants me to, so I can become the person he wants and needs me to be. My dad has said to me that “people don’t care how much you know tell they know how much you care” and I KNOW that Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father love and care about me and that in order to show them how much I love them I want to do all I can to do what is right and serve as many people as I can and do as they would do. I am a child of God. We are all his children and he loves everyone and wants us all to be happy.
