Hi I'm Spencer

I love family, i love sports, i love the Gospel. I am a Mormon.

About Me

so right now im surving as a missionary in Coos Bay Oregon. It is awesome here and very beautiful. Some of the things i really enjoyed doing at home before my mission was football, excercise, and hangin out with the family and buddies. im also into paintball, volleyball, cars, big trucks, music, and hunting, camping, fishing, dating, man ill just say it... i love it all!!! haha but all of these things i do doesnt come close to how much i love my family. I actually do all these things with them, it makes it that much more fun. im in a family of 7 mom, dad, and 1girl and 4 boys and im smack dab in the middle them. Once im off my mission ill be going into college, hopefully get married and try to be the best father/husband i can. the mission has helped me to be a better person, citizen, and lets me know the potientual we have as children of God. to not let fear get in the way of how i live my live. but to acheive happiness through good choices.

Why I am a Mormon

Truth. That is why, pure truth. the spirit testifies of truth and when i read the Book of mormon and asked God if it be true, the feeling of the spirit testified and bore witness and confirmed to me that it was. it was so powerful, so real, that i could not deny my experience. God loves us enough that he will let us know. But i hungered and needed to know truth in order to recieve my answer. how bad do you want to know? and what are you willing to give up to know it? Then once you do... ask God... thats what i did. 

How I live my faith

 At the moment i am serving a mission in Oregon called the Oregon Eugene Mission. I'v served in different parts of Oregon, first in Sutherlin, Klamath Falls, Corvallis, and now Coos Bay. as missionaries we serve for 2 years and and strive to bring people closer to Christ and our Heavenly Father, by teaching them the restored Gospel, and by helping them live Gospel standards. Iv seen peoples lives change for the better and have seen people come closer to God than they ever have before. It brings so much happiness in my life when i see a child of God coming closer to our Heavenly Father.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

 I want you to ask yourself that question. How can you find the answers? If we wanted to relate the mormon church to a bicycle, the only real way for that bicycle to benifit us and get us to our destination is to actually get on the bike and peddle right? We cant just look at the bike and say, "hmm yes thats a good bike" haha. Same way with the church, in order to know if the church is true we must apply its teachings and live it first. we need to read from the Book of Mormon, go to a church service, pray and ask God, the source, if the things that you are learning and doing are true. Then you will be able to see the blessings and recieve the answeres from God as you sincerly search to know the truth.  Show more Show less
