Hi I'm Cees

I grew up in Idaho. I used to have a mustache. I have torn my ACL three times. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am from Idaho - Yeah, I like potatoes. I have a 3 brothers, 3 sisters, and an Old English sheep dog. I love mountain biking, slack lining, climbing, and drinking chocolate milk. I'm studying Geology, Russian, and Arabic. I lived in Russia, Ukraine, and Kazakhstan. I used to have a mustache. I know that Christ is our Savior.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love my Savior. Doing what He wants me to do is really important to me. Finding His church is part of that. As I prayed about The Book of Mormon, and the Church in general, I received a confirming witness that it IS true. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is His true church on the earth today.

How I live my faith

I try to live like my Savior. I am not perfect, that's for sure! But I am constantly striving to apply the principles that he taught. I served a 2 year mission in areas around Moscow, Russia, and in Almaty, Kazakhstan. I left my family and friends back home to talk to people about Christ's church. I told people EVERY DAY about the love of our Savior and the joy and peace that we can feel as we turn to him. I love reading the scriptures. The inspiration that comes from reading the words of the prophets, both ancient and modern, brings solace and comfort in times of trial and confusion. I love it!

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

It's all about prayer. If we want to get to know ANYBODY, you've got to talk to them, right? Talking with our Heavenly Father is the best way for us to grow closer to Him. As we pray we can feel his love and see how much he really wants to be involved in our lives. Talk with him! Tell him about your day! Council with him about your problems! Ask for help! Tell him thanks! I know that if we pray to God, He WILL answer. Show more Show less
