Hi I'm Spencer George
I'm a Policy Debator, Student Government Senator, Political Junkie, and I'm a Mormon.
I am a college student in Miami. Some of the activities I'm involved in is Student Government where I am Freshman class senator. I'm also a member of the Debate team and was named the 9th best novice policy debater at Nationals. Finally, I'm the second vice-chair in College Republicans at my school. I love sports, especially college football, NFL, NBA, and soccer. I love playing just a pick up game of basketball with my friends. I also love to curl up and read a good book. One of my favorite things to do with my family and friends is go to Disney; I go there all the time to do everything there is to do because it always seems to be changing! Currently, I'm over in Compton! serving my mission. I Absolutely love it over here and think this is one of the best places ever.
Why I am a Mormon
I'm a Mormon because this is the only way to achieve true peace in life. Everyone understands pain that you go through in this life. Everyone also knows is that while there are many "solutions" to this pain, that most of the time they don't have the ability to provide long term peace. Once I started living the gospel, I finally discovered that this is the only way that I am able to gain true, lasting peace. Once I finally figured this out for myself, I have then dedicated myself to live the principles of the gospel so that I can have that peace, that comfort in my life. I know that the gospel is true, that this truly is the gospel of peace. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, that God still cares about His people enough to talk to prophets to guide us in these latter days. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God, that He gave us another Testament of Jesus Christ so that more people might be brought to Christ. I know that through the power of the Atonement, we might be healed from our pain, guilt, or anything that is negative in our life if we would just use it. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true church of God, that by living the principles taught by Christ in this church, any person will be able to know God and live with him again. I know all of these things through a combination of prayer and personal application of said doctrine. Because I know all of these things, I am a Mormon!
How I live my faith
In my church, I was in charge of the paperwork relating to members and what their jobs were. Overall, it took a little time to get use to how to do it. Once I figured it out, it was a great blessing in my life. I learned a lot of life skills be learning how to use a computer database and properly record them. Currently, my calling is to be a full time Missionary in the church. I am going to serve out in Long Beach, California. I'm really excited to be able to go out there and to be able to follow what God wants me to do while helping people find peace in their life. I'm super excited and am so glad for this chance!!!! When it really comes down to it, the biggest way I live my faith is the way I live my life. Living in Miami, you can see ton's of different life styles; many of which proclaim to bring happiness, a great time, or success. Because I really do believe in Jesus Christ and his restored church, I make sure to choose the path that he would want me to take. Sometimes this means that on a Friday night, when everyone else goes clubbing, I'll be back in my dorm. Other days it means I have to decline an invitation to a party or leave the room while others are participating in activities I don't support. However, no matter what sacrifice that I make for Christ to live his teachings, I always know that I am making the correct one and have yet to ever regret following my Savior. While I'm no where near a perfect person, I do try my best to LIVE my faith!
