Hi I'm Beau

I'm your average college student who just happens to LOVE the beach. So what's not so average that makes me special? I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Beau. I am a twenties age college student who loves to learn new things. I grew up mostly in Hawaii and Arizona. I love anything to do with water- I love the lake, boating, wakeboarding, the ocean, the beach, surfing, etc. I am studying to be a psychologist, and I am minoring in Spanish. In fact, I teach Spanish as my job right know. I love meeting and learning about other people and cultures. I hope to be able to help others with their problems and make their lives happier. Like everyone, I have had my share of trials and hard times in life. My perfect day is a day at the beach where I live in Hawaii- the sound of the waves, the beauty of the ocean and the sand, the perfect breeze. But as a teenager I found out that there was something more to life- something that brought not only the tranquility of the sea, but true and everlasting peace. I found the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because as a high school student, I began to question the purpose of life. I was going through a lot of difficult times, especially with lots of family issues such as divorce. I questioned why we were here in life, especially since it appeared to me that I was suffering a lot and I had no clear purpose in life. I had found no purpose, no true reason to live, no answers to all of my questions, and no way to heal from the past and present. So I began to earnestly search. I eventually found and read the Book of Mormon, and it answered why I am here and where I am going. It, along with the Holy Bible, helped me find the reason we go through trials, how to learn from them, and how to be healed by Jesus Christ. It gave me hope, and I learned for myself through prayer that the Book of Mormon is truly the word of God. I am a Mormon because through earnest searching, God lead me to the truth, and through study, prayer, and revelation from God, I learned for myself that the Church of Jesus Christ has once again been restored to the earth. I am a Mormon because I have come to know the purpose of life and how to live happily through the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to love others as our Savior Jesus Christ would. I try to be an extremely open minded person and accept people no matter who they are or what they have done. I have a goal to learn from them and love them. I also try to follow and be an example of all of the commandments that God has given us. As I work my way through the craziness known as life, I try to turn to the Lord, and I also seek to help others do the same. I LOVE helping others find true joy, and trying to love them. I am definitely not perfect, but I have been extremely blessed in my life, even through all of the hardships.
