Hi I'm Zane

I'm a missionary. I love music. I'll always love playing drums and having fun. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 20 years old and I'm currently serving in the California Anaheim Mission. I really enjoy music. listening to it, playing it, everything about it. I love listening to Ska, Jazz, Rock, Reggae, and the list could go on for a while. I play piano and percussion. I love the drums! I have been involved with percussion ensembles, rock bands, show bands, drum line, and play tons of different percussion instruments for lots of different musical groups. I love it. I also for as long as I live will go to concerts. Live shows are one of the greatest things there is. I also love sports like basketball and ultimate frisbee. I love the outdoors too! I love snow boarding, wake boarding, camping, hiking, all that stuff. I just love to have fun. I'm a seeker of thrill rides, the bigger the better. I do all these things thanks to my family. I love hanging out and having fun with my family. I love being with my friends and all the people that I love. I love life and love being me.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I was born into a Mormon family, I have learned and experienced many things about my church which is why I have stuck to it all these years. The Gospel has blessed my life more than I could ever measure. I would not be the person I am today without it. This church keeps my life on track and keeps me happy. I am blessed every single day by my heavenly father and I know he loves and knows me personally.

How I live my faith

Right now while I am on my mission, I serve in this gospel every day. I love it. I serve people, teach about the gospel and see all of the amazing blessings that come from it. Life is still fun and I love serving where I am. Living the standards of the church blesses my life every day. I don't see them as rules, but as guides to keep me safe and happy in my life.

What is the Word of Wisdom that Mormons talk about?

The Word of Wisdom is a health code that was given to us by the Prophet Joseph Smith. He got it by revelation from God. It counsels us to avoid substances that could harm our body, and teaches us to seek after good and healthy things for our body. Following the Word of Wisdom keeps me free from addictions, keeps me happy and healthy, and the Lord promises us many more blessings by obeying this revelation. It tells us to avoid Tobacco, alcohol, coffee, tea, and other illegal drugs and addictive substances. It tells us to seek after grains, fruits, vegetables, and all of those things that are good for you! People have told me that drinking a glass of red wine is good for your body, I don't know if that is true, but even if it is, the blessings you will receive by keeping the commandment from God will far outweigh any health benefit from drinking wine! I am grateful for this counsel that we are given and the blessings it gives to me. It is amazing how much our Heavenly Father knows us and what is good for us in this life. Show more Show less
