Hi I'm Austin

I'm an aspiring medical student. I'm an athlete. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the oldest of seven children and love being a member of such a large family! I enjoy playing sports. I played a season of college football and now I can't get enough of pick up games with friends. I also really enjoy being outdoors and experiencing the joy of the Earth. One of my favorite times is when it is a quiet, starry summer night next to a campfire, gazing up at the stars. I make the most out of every day and can't stand having regrets. I am also a tad ambitious. I can't decide between being a doctor or a lawyer so I may just do both! I love to read Enlightenment Era literature and love american history and the writings of the founding fathers. When I am not studying or spending time with friends, I am running, exercising and staying active. My active lifestyle is one way that I get the most out of life. I have to always be doing something!

Why I am a Mormon

I love my Savior, Jesus Christ. I truly have come to know who He is and how He feels about me, especially through the Book of Mormon. I was a new college student and unsure of my place and my purpose in life. It was at that time that I decided to seriously consider religion in general, but especially The Church of Jesus Christ. I read the Book of Mormon and received an answer from my Father in Heaven that it is true. As I have continued to study it, I have learned that God is my Father and that He loves me. I know how He wants me to live and also how I can come closer to Him. I cherish the knowledge that He wants me to return to Him and be there with my family! I am the happiest I have ever been in my entire life.

How I live my faith

I love being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ. I enjoy extending a helping hand wherever it is needed and making a difference in the lives of others. I love catching people by surprise with simple acts of courtesy, such as holding a door, remembering a name, or giving an unexpected compliment with a smile! There is nothing better than expressing your unconditional love for others and now on my mission I do it every day!
