Hi I'm Mason

I'm a Utahn, a disabled kid, a Nerdfighter, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I go to school 30 hours a week for a certificate in Business Technology. I started school in January of 2012. I was originally planning to go into psychology, a four year commitment. My mother saw this business class online and wanted me to check it out. I am very glad I am in this program. I will attend school for about two years before graduating. I can't work very well and the older I get, the worse my working ability becomes. I love my car, it is a '93 Plymouth Sundance Duster. I've had my car since I was 17 and in high school. My friends and I had a lot of fun with our vehicles. We would take them mudding and take them to school the next day covered in mud. When we showed up, you knew we were there, we were loud. Now when I meet people from high school, they remember my car but not my name. My drivers license expires in 2014, at that time my eyesight will prevent me from renewing my license. Behind our house is a lot of land I enjoy mountain biking on. It's full of gravel and rocks, but we make it work. I have put a lot of miles on my bike, both on and off the dirt. I used to be able to ride miles without the use of my hands, now I can barely go five feet. I can't bunny-hop or jump anymore. I currently work at a movie theater three hours a week as a concessionaire. A few years ago I was a projectionist, but now I can't keep up with the quick pace and the amount of work. As a concessionaire the work is slower and less physical. I have two degenerative diseases.

Why I am a Mormon

I question many things, and find answers through scriptures study and prayer. Spending time pondering over the answers that I receive helps me to interpret the answers properly and understand what I am supposed to know. My Heavenly Father won't let me down, He wants me home. All answers have pointed toward the teachings and practices of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, the religion I have grown up with.

How I live my faith

I know that Heavenly Father loves his children, even me. I know that as I do the best at what I am able, that He will provide for me. I try to live each day as an example of Christ, serving others and using the talents that He has given me. I get through each day by knowing that my Heavenly Father has a plan for me and that my purpose in this life is to gain a body, have a happy family, and return to live with Him some day. Studying and pondering over scripture is one thing that helps me quite a bit. I know that the Old Testament, the New Testament, the Book of Mormon, the Doctrine and Covenants, and the Pearl of Great Price are true scripture from God by revelation to man, and I love them. Besides this wonderful books, God has given us many good works. Ever good gift comes from God. This beautiful earth, the works of many inspired people, and families are all evidence of the love of God. Everything on this earth is manifest of God and His work. The evidence is everywhere. He who has ears to hear shall hear, he who has eyes to see shall see.
