Hi I'm Austin

I'm 19 years old, love basketball, dirt biking, and serving a mission in Oklahoma City and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've grown up in Idaho Falls, Idaho my whole life. I'm 19 years old and am serving a full-time mission in Oklahoma. I love sports, especially basketball, being outside, dirt biking and camping. I also love to listening to music, hanging out with friends, spending time with my family, and anything fun.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and raised by a great LDS family. There came a point in my life where I couldn't just rely on my parents' testimony anymore. I had to find out for myself if the church was true. I came to know that by reading the Book of Mormon, praying, and by living by the standards the chruch has asked us to. Heavenly Father gave me the answer that the Book of Mormon was the word of God. It has blessed me my whole life. It's helped me overcome trails and avoid things that would harm me. I've experienced true happiness from being a Mormon. It gives me hope and it just makes sense.

How I live my faith

One way I live my faith is by serving a mission. I want to help those not of our faith have that opportunity to except the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I try my best to follow the commandments the Lord has asked us to.
