Hi I'm Christian

I'm a singer, I'm an athlete, now I'm a missionary, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 22 years old, love all kinds of sports, I ran track, played football, and basketball in high school. But I also love to sing, and did a lot of that as well I've been part of numerous productions through my life and I've truly found my love in music. Planning on going into Journalism. I want to become an editor of a magazine or a newspaper when I "grow up."

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church. But after high school I walked away from it for a time and just did my own thing. Worked, partied, just like a normal college age kid. That was fun for a little bit, but no matter how much "fun" I was having, something was always missing. I also realized that I didn't have any direction in my life and had absolutely no idea what to do, it seemed like every choice I made turned into a "dead end" and it got old after a while. I looked for an answer to "the hole" and direction for a pretty good chunk of time and in a lot of different places, that didn't really go anywhere... One night I was hanging out with some friends and in their apartment was a plaque that said, "When life gets too hard to stand, kneel." I decided to do that, the feeling of love that I felt that night was and is un-describeable, "the change" didn't happen overnight but eventually I took the step and started to truly live the gospel and attend church. I know that this is true. There isn't anything else like it out there and believe me I've looked! This is real, and nothing else can imitate the feeling that I get when I pray, or read the Book of Mormon. This church is true, and it's the only way back to our Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

Right now I'm serving a mission in the Michigan Lansing Mission. Doing my very best to bring as many of Heavenly Father's children to the fulness of His gospel. Just trying to bring people closer to Jesus, and as I've been doing that I've seen a little bit more of the love that He has for me. So basically right now I'm living as close to Christlike as I've ever been in my life and it has been an amazing experience! I love what I'm doing, and it's the best thing any member of the church that is the right age could be doing at this time in their life!
