Hi I'm Mitchell

I grew up in Colorado. I'm a College Student. I'm a runner. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I just completed my Freshman year of College, and loved it. Before continuing my education, I will be taking off two years to serve a mission for the Church. I have been called to serve among the people in Chile! I am the youngest in my family with two older brothers who have both served missions for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I love my family very much, and it is all to my loving parents. They have raised three boys extremely well and have prepared all of us for life in the big world. I have a strong passion for running. Consequently, I also live an exceptionally healthy life style. I love water, and don't drink soda except for Fresca which is the bomb. I love pasta, sun chips, and other foods that aren't freezer dinners. I listen to a lot of music, but mostly Jack Johnson, as he is, hands down, my favorite artist.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I am a follower of Christ. I know that being Mormon blesses me with a desire to pattern and live my life like my Savior, Jesus Christ. This Church is true because it allows me to love all people and make and keep covenants. I'm a Mormon because I've received a testimony that this gospel is true. Every day I wake up knowing exactly why I'm here, what I need to become, and who's light I need to walk in. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior, I've come to understand and recognize the Atonement which I'm eternally grateful for. I know that at times this earth has been in darkness, the flood, the great apostasy when the Truth was rejected; however, now the world is not in darkness, we have the True Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, it has been restored to the earth, and never will be taken again. Our Heavenly Father loves us and has a great plan for all of his Children who will live on the earth. We have been blessed with His church that teaches us to love and allows us to make covenants to last through eternity. This world if full of people that believe in Christ, but it's not till you are a member of His church where you can be blessed with the opportunity to understand all things and partake of all the blessings our Loving father, Savior Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost have to offer. I am a Mormon because I've received a testimony, through prayer, that Jesus Lives and directs His Church on the earth today, and that church is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

How I live my faith

Living my faith is an everyday occurrence. First of all, I love other people. I am always looking for opportunities to serve or help others. Also, I pray and study the scriptures daily. It is imperative that one always is learning and bettering their relationship with their Heavenly Father. Finally, I participate in the ordinance of the Sacrament each Sunday. This is an ordinance in which baptized members of the church have the opportunity to remember the previous week, recognize their sins, and humble themselves to receive forgiveness for their sins. Our church believes that we must keep promises to our Hevenly Father during this earth life, and we renew our commitment to those promises each Sunday. The church is run by the members, and we all have jobs to do called 'callings'. I will be serving a mission in Chile, and for two years that will be my calling. I will dedicate all my time to helping others around me, and I am greatly looking forward to it. Callings change throughout our life, yet no matter what the calling is I will do it because I live my faith by being obedient to every commandment of my Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ.
