Hi I'm Zach

I'm a Big Brother, a Child at Heart, a Seeker Of Truth, a Total Spaz, And I'm A Mormon.

About Me

I've grown up in the church with my parents and siblings, All of whom i love very much, and Thankfully they love me too.. I have many hobbies which include gaming, Biking, Watching Movies, Hiking, Paintballing, Shooting, Having Fun with my siblings, Being with my closest friends and having a great time. Hard though it may be for me, I love to Learn , deepening and expanding my knowledge and Understanding of things in the world around me. And if I can, i try and understand myself too. I've always been trying to learn something new and something fun and something useful and something crazy. Now that i've grown a foot or two , i'm out on a mission in Carlsbad california, sharing the message that has brought my family and I So much Peace and Joy with others, Because i know that it will bring the same blessings I have seen into the lives of others.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church with my family. I was baptized at 8 years old and my faith has since grown incredibly strong. I have always trusted the guidance and knowledge of my parents and i know that they would not lead me down false paths. Partly what has shaped my faith is the knowledge that My family and I can be together in eternity. I don't know where i would be or what i would do if i didn't have my family. I know that my family and i can be blessed through the gospel and living as Christ and our heavenly father wants us to. I look forward to one day having a family of my own and sharing in my joy of knowing we will be together forever with them. I know that i will always have the same relationships and friendships that i have now, and that my friends in this life will continue as my friends and companions in the next. And that brings me great hope and joy in looking towards the future, in knowing that i will forever be with my friends and family.

How I live my faith

I try and let my faith show in everything i do or say. If anyone ever needs help and i am able to lend a hand, I will Do so. If anyone i know ever needs encouragement or a good friend in a time of need, i will be there. I try and offer my hand in service of the community around me. I'm always jumping on the band wagon when earth day projects roll around, and i do my best to prevent damage to the environment around me. Right now my main focus is my mission. I can see no better way through which i can show my faith and devotion to the savior than giving my life for the work so that others may partake and share the happiness the gospel has brought me and my family. While i serve I will do all that i can to do what is right and share my happiness and joy with those who will lend an ear.

What is faith?

Faith is The Reason a farmer Even Bothers to Plant Seeds; He Knows they Will Grow. Faith is The Reason that We Go To the Doctor When ill; We Know they will Help us. Faith is The Reason we Prepare For the Next day; We Know the Sun will rise again. Faith is The Reason we Believe In Christ; His Gospel and Words Will Enlarge our Souls and Our Joy. Faith is The Reason Those Met By Christ were Healed; They Knew He Could Heal them. Faith is The Reason I Look to the Future With Hope, Knowing that Though My Body shall Fade Into The Dust of the Earth From Whence It Came, Because of Christ, I shall Rise and Stand Again in his Presence. Faith, In Christ, Is the Reason, Nay, The Power By which we Even Move. Faith, In Christ, Is the Power By which we Live. Faith, In Christ, Is the Power By which we Shall Live again. Faith, In Christ, Is my Motivation, The Catalyst Behind My Life, The Power Behind my Movement. If Something Moves It has had Faith. If Something Does Not Move It has Not had Faith. If We Do Not Move, We Have Not Faith. So Let's have Faith, And Let's Get Moving. Show more Show less

What are Mormon Temples used for?

Temples Used By the LDS Church serve many Purposes. Therein Many Are Married To one another For time and Eternity, Baptisms for our dead family Occur to Bring them also The Blessings of the Gospel of Jesus Christ if they Did not have the opportunity to Receive them in this life, and We Learn Eternal Truths about Life and the Great Plan of Salvation that Our Heavenly Father Has Prepared for Us. Though I have Not Yet been married, I have Indeed felt the Spirit of The Lord Inside those Walls, and Have Found Peace for My Weary Soul, and Joy for my Tired Heart. I have Felt the Love of God in the Temple, as Many do, and Also like many others, I Leave the Temple Feeling Uplifted and Spiritually rejuvinated. The Temple is Something that I ALWAYS look forward to. Show more Show less

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Well, in my opinion, We can look all around us and see Gods handiwork. An Example for me, is to see how hard scientists have tried to recreate life, from nothing, and they still have nothing to show for it. If it can't happen when we're trying to do it on Purpose with all of our technology and Knowledge, i'm pretty sure it's impossible for it to happen on Accident. Plus when we see how intricately everything works and fits together, and then on top of that how beautiful everything is naturally, there's no way it's all just some sort of cosmic accident. The Sheer Beauty in everything round about us, is More than enough evidence for me, on top of how Functional that Beauty is, That There is an All Knowing God, who created all things in the Earth and in the Heavens, and that we are his children.
