Hi I'm Monty

I'm getting married!

About Me

 I am about to be 22 and am way excited! I am soon to be married which is also way exciting. I am currently studying to be a Mechanical Engineer. It is an awesome major with lots of math analysis with everything around us. I also love music, dancing, and singing. Most of that is because i played the trumpet for 8 years. In that time my love for music really grew.

Why I am a Mormon

 I have been in the church since I was a young boy. My family has been in the church for a long time but i have chosen to be a member for personal reasons. When i was 14 or so my family was having tough times and my parents spent a lot of time with my brother and sister. I began to be very curious if it was for me to continue in what my parents have taught me. I spent a few months really being confused. I was not sure what to do. After this time i was alone one night in my room and i was really upset about my life and i wanted to know what i was to do. I kneeled down and wept expressing myself to my Father In Heaven. I wasn't sure if he was listening but i talked hoping with every desire that he would and that he would respond back again. As i prayed i begged Him to help me and to come to me and help. I wanted Him to come and tell me what i should do, i really wanted Him to appear to me. As I prayed and begged for this i felt a distinct feeling that he would not appear to me because i was not worthy. I also felt distinctly that the church that my parents taught me was the one that needed to support. I felt confirmation that I needed to be worthy of the Priesthood and work to support the church and to repent and come closer to my savior.

How I live my faith

 My focus is to always analyze what i do and compare that against the command of God. Right now i am a sunday school teacher in my ward. Mostly i am preparing to go to the temple with my fiance. I have a lot of fun teaching about Christ. It has been a great experience to study the teachings of Christ with the outlook of teaching them to others.
