Hi I'm Chris

I love the outdoors. I love a challenge. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am from California but I am currently serving as a missionary in Seattle Washington. After my mission, I will resume my studies at BYU and plan on becoming an Orthodontist. I am an avid college football fan and can be seen watching hours upon hours of college football on Saturdays. I love the outdoors: hiking, biking, swimming, skiing, track and field, you name it! Throughout my life, I have lived in Utah, Nebraska, Kentucky, South Carolina, Tennessee, California, and now Washington. I love to just hang out and my friends say I have a dry sense of humor. My family means the world to me. I am the oldest of five and I just love them all to death!!

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Church of Jesus Christ and I have always known that the things I was learning were true. I have come to know this through years of trying to listen to the subtle promptings of the Spirit (the feelings of confirmation God gives us to help us recognize truth). As a child I came to know that God is real and that He does, in reality, listen to and answer our prayers. I came to know that God has a plan for us in this life and that we lived with Him before we lived here on this Earth. I have received comfort, when I felt like no one knew who I really was or what I has going through. I have found solice in the scriptures and peace that things of the world simply cannot bring. I LOVE the Book of Mormon. It is another testament of Christ and is evidence that God loves all His children. You will find answers to questions of the soul by reading this holy book of scripture. The fruits of living the way God would have us live is beyond description. My family is close. We have a great love for each other and know that we can live together as a family unit in the eternities. That is why I am in Washington, serving a mission. So I can bring this joy to others and help them taste of the happiness that comes from following Christ more fully in their lives.

How I live my faith

I spend 24/7 for two years teaching others about how the church that Christ set up when He was on the Earth, has been brought back and how through repentance and baptism, we can attain a fulness of joy in this life and in the life to come!!
