Hi I'm Zachary

I love my family, I'm a competative swimmer, and I'm a MORMON!

About Me

I just graduated from High School, and I am now serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Chirst of Latter-day Saints, in Tacoma, Washington. I have an amazing family that consits of my mom, my dad, three sisters, a step-dad, and 8 step siblings. As a kid I enjoyed playing sports. I participated in soccer, football, hockey, baseball, basketball, and most of all, swim team. My parents got divorced while I was in 7th grade, which caused some problems in our family, but we stuck together and overcame them through faith in Jesus Christ. My mom got remarried and our family now lives in Arizona, while my dad lives in Utah. My oldest sister attends college at BYU-Idaho. In highschool I participated on the swim team, participated in the state competition, and was voted team captain. I love my family with all my heart, and I love life!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I know that this is Jesus Christ's church once again established to the earth. I know the Book of Mormon is the word of God. By simply knowing this, I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, and that he saw Jesus Chirst and God the Father, and that he restored the Gospel of Jesus Chirst on the earth again. I know that Heavenly Father loves each and every one of us, and that he wants us to comunicate with him. We can do this through prayer. By simply talking to Heavenly Father in prayer, we can know for ourselves that this is the true church, that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, and that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I am also a member of this great church because I have been blessed and have seen how the gospel has blessed my family. The values we are taught do nothing but help us make good choices to help us return to live with our Heavenly Father. I love Heavenly Father and Jesus Chirst with all my heart. I love my family. Being a member of this great church is the best way that we can find peace and comfort in this crazy world. Being a member of the church helps us not only find purpose and meaning in this life, but will help us find purpose and meaning in the world to come. It simply boils down to the fact that being a member of the Church of Jesus Chirst of Latter-day Saints has helped me become the man that I have wanted to become. It is the church that will bring you the most joy. Its where you will truly find true happiness =)

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing everything that Heavenly Father has commanded us to do. It may be hard sometimes to be obedient, but that is where faith comes into play. We need to have faith that as long as we keep the commandments of the Lord, we will be delivered from the trials that are put in our way. I love to tell my friends at home all about the church. Im never ashamed to tell people that I am a Mormon, because being a Mormon is great! I also live my faith by serving a full time, two year mission for my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. All worthy, young men are commanded to serve missions. By doing so, I am doing what Heavenly Father has asked me to do. Its the simple things that we as children of God can do to live our faith. "By small and simple things, are great things come to pass.." (Alma 37:6-7)
