Hi I'm Spencer

I'm a recent college graduate. I'm a husband. I'm an intern. I love sports and country music. I love my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I come from an awesome family. I have two loving parents and five younger siblings. I grew up in Utah until I was about twelve and then my family moved to Colorado. I have one younger brother, he is almost 10 years younger than me but we are best friends. We love to play basketball, wrestle and go to sporting events. After graduating from High School I served my mission in the Pacific Northwest. I enjoyed spending two years sharing the gospel. After my mission I attended BYU-Idaho. I learned a lot, made a lot of friends and had a lot of fun! While I was up at school I met my beautiful wife. After dating for a year we were married in the temple. I recently graduated from college and we have moved back to the pacific northwest. I am currently an HR intern at a large company. When I'm not working I like to spend time with my wife. We like to be outdoors. We enjoy running, playing tennis, and roller blading.

Why I am a Mormon

One of the things I love about this church is that it teaches it's members how to truly be happy. Happiness cannot come through the things of the world. Happiness comes from knowing and following our Savior, Jesus Christ. Through reading and studying the words of the prophets in the scriptures I have come to know who Christ is, and why he is important to me. I'm a Mormon because I know that the Book of Mormon is true. The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. It teaches us more about our Heavenly Fathers plan for us. I love that we have a living Prophet. God has not abandoned us, he has given us someone to listen to. I know that our propet speaks with God and reveals to us what we need to know. Because we have a living prophet on the earth today we have Gods power and authority. Through the priesthood families are able to be sealed together forever in the temple. I love this church because Jesus Christ is at the head of it. The church is a safe haven from the things of the world. I know that this church is true. I have spent hours of my life reading the scriptures and praying to God to let me know of it's truthfullness. I have learned throught the power of the Holy Ghost that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is True. I know from my own experiece that this is the only church on the earth today with the fullness of the Gospel. This knowlege has brought me true happiness and that's why I'm a mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by having a personal realationship with my Heavenly Father. I pray and read the scriptures everyday. Recently I have been reading the words of our modern day prophet and apostles. I live my faith wherever I am. At home I try to be a loving husband. At work I try to be a good co-worker, an honest employee, and a hard worker. In the community I try to be an upstanding citizen. Each Sunday I worship with other members of our local congregation. Just this last week my wife and I spoke in church. One of the ways I live my faith is by serving others. I try to live my life in a way that people around me will know that I am different. I want them to know by my words, and actions that I am a follower of Christ. I am a mormon.
