Hi I'm Colby

I am serving my mission in Boise Idaho! and I love it. So of course I'm a Mormon. Come on

About Me

I'm 22 years old and am currently serving a mission! It's amazing. I'm a convert to the church and was baptized December of 09'. Life is always good, but it's way better when you're a Mormon. I have one year left at ASU as a Finance major and the people love me there. Side Parts and Volleyball... That's what Colby does. K? loveyoubye.

Why I am a Mormon

If I could say one thing to the world about why I am a Mormon it's that there is no greater joy in life then doing what is right in the eyes of our Heavenly Father. He would not send His Only Begotten to the earth, allow men to change his doctrines, and not provide a restoration of the things His Son taught us. We need Jesus Christ's example to follow as well as the Atonement He wrought for us. Without these things we cannot be forgiven nor would we know what to do. I know that if there is one sure way to return to live with Heavenly Father and know that what we are doing is what He would want us to do, it would be to follow the example of the Savior. This is Jesus Christ's Church. He has given us everything we need for us to receive a fulness of salvation and to be truly happy. I stand as a witness that these things are true. I would do anything to be a member of this Church. This life here on Earth is but a moment in eternity. What truly matters is that we are prepared to stand before our Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ. I urge that everyone read the Book of Mormon and ask the Lord in the name of Christ if it is true. The Spirit felt when reading the book cannot be immitated or emulated by anything or anyone on earth... The Holy Ghost will truly teach you through your thoughts and feelings that the book is true, and you'll be able to know for yourself from your Father in Heaven. Hey, just give it a shot.

How I live my faith

Living this faith brings joy and happiness. Blessings truly are poured out upon those that do the things the Father asks. As i've previously mentioned I am sharing the gospel by serving a mission. I get to see people learn, grasp, and hold onto eternal truths that they once knew before this life. It's absolutely beautiful to see one of God's children desire to return to live with him and do all they can to make sure they make it. I get to see lives change just by reading a book. The Book of Mormon has a special spirit about it. There are promised blessings associated with reading it as well. These blessings are that we will grow closer to Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ as we read. Anyone who reads this book with sincerity will come to know this and fall in love with the Gospel of Christ and the opportunity for salvation that He provides.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?
