Hi I'm Justin

I grew up in California. I have an awesome family. I love life! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 I'm currently serving a two year mission for the church in Boise, Idaho. I've been out for a little more than 21 months and will soon be returning to California. Before my mission I was going to college and plan to return when I get home. I LOVE sports! My favorites being Mixed-Martial Arts, football, and basketball! I also like hanging out with friends, music, movies, and taking long walks on the beach haha. At a young age I was adopted by my Aunt and Uncle. Today I don't view them as my Aunt and Uncle, but rather my Mom and my Dad, and with a new Mom and Dad came two new brothers and a sister. I know God had a part in placing me into their home. I'm also grateful that God has permitted me to have contact and a good relationship with my biological mother, with which I also have two more younger sisters and a younger brother. So in total I'm one in 7. I have the best of both worlds because I'm the youngest and oldest!

Why I am a Mormon

I have been blessed to have grown up in the church and been taught by goodly parents. Both of my parents are converts to the church, and they both are return missionaries. They did a great job in teaching me and setting great examples. But with that said, I too had to find out if this was true or not. As most teenagers, I wasn't too interested in religion, so my testimony definitely wasn't the strongest and I definitely didn't give a good example of the church. But to make a long story short, after High School ended, and I was left to search for my next path. After weighing a few options, I followed the council of my Dad and prayed. Today I am who I am because God answered my prayer through the power of the Holy Ghost. That was just the beginning of my conversion but it was also the the most crucial part. I know God answers prayers! Sometimes it may not be what you expect, when you expect, or how you expect, but he always answers a sincere, heartfelt prayer. He did it for me so I KNOW he can do it for you!

How I live my faith

 Right now I am currently living my faith by being a full-time representative of the Lord Jesus Christ. I go out and share the message of the Restoration daily with my Brothers and Sisters in Idaho. I am very grateful to have this opportunity to devote my life in the service of my God and my fellow men and women.
