Hi I'm Austin

I grew up on a potato farm. I love to hunt and ride horses in the outdoors. Im going to college studying Marketing. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up with seven sisters and one brother. We were all raised on a potatoe farm that my family owns. I grew up riding horses and loving to hunt with my family members. I love training a horse to do something and then when they do it getting that satisfaction of accomplishment. My family is all spread out across the country but I still enjoy keeping up with them and traveling to see them. I love seeing some of my nephews and nieces. They are so cute and I love how innocent they are! Im going to college and am going into marketing. I am currently in a program that will let me study internationally and gain business experience abroad. I think its important to keep a global perspective with modern business.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I love my family and I want to live with them as a family forever. Nothing means more to me than that. Because I know that in order for this to happen none of us can have any sin, that is why I rely on my savior Jesus Christ for his sacrifice for me. I know that through him I can be made perfect through my baptisimal covenants. I love my savior and I look forward to seeing him again. I had two little sisters that died at a young age. I cherish the knowledge that through the gospel of Jesus Christ I will see them again. I have prayed about the Book of Mormon and have received a comfort that it is true. This comfort has come to me and has allowed me to know for myself that this is the true church of Jesus Christ and that through its teachings we can return to live with our father in heaven.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to live and treat others like Jesus Christ did. I know that through this principle I will become a better future husband and father. I know that this is why we are here, is to follow the example of Jesus Christ. I also do this by helping out my fellow men. I often do service projects that give back to the community and individuals that cannot help themselves. I fulfill my callings with all my heart, including being an effective home teacher. When I go home teaching I really try to focus on the love that the Savior has for this person, and what he would do for them if he were here. I live my faith by keeping the comandments of God and trying to improve every day.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Missionaries proselyte because they know that their Savior wants them to bring others back to him. They know that the only way that we can return to live with him is through baptism and repentance. Missionaries sacrifice greatly because they know this is true, they have seen it bless their lives, and they want it to bless the lives of others. Missionaries proselyte because Christ loves his children, and because they have a love for their fellow men. Show more Show less
