Hi I'm Austin

I love Being outside, Playing Sports, spending time with my family and helping others feel a part of the party. I'm a Mormon :)

About Me

My whole life growing up all I ever cared for was hanging out with friends and playing sports. I love sports! Football, Basketball, Baseball, Motorcross, Skiing, Wakeboarding, anything that will give me that thrill. I Love my family so much so I always try to look out for them and make sure that we are always happy. Right now I am going to college but still don't know what I want to be in life, I just know that I want to be able to get lost in the service of others.

Why I am a Mormon

The most important thing to me is families. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints truly has the purpose of helping and supporting families. I myself know that when I can pray and follow the guidance from general conference, when I am helping others and not thinking about myself, I am happier, Life is just so much better. Of course like everyone in their life, a time came in my life when I truly needed to know for myself which church was going to bring me closer to heavenly father and help me to be a better person. Through prayer and studying the Book of Mormon, I recieved an overwhelming feeling that this is the true church and ever since I have just been learning more and more things.

How I live my faith

What christ taught when he lived on earth was that if we want to return to our heavenly father again, we need to follow the example of Jesus Christ. Jesus was perfect, he was always looking to serve and help others. I myself know that if I want to find true happiness in my life, I need to serve others. My family, friends, and people who just need help. I have grown so much just through prayer and putting in a little bit of effort every day to try harder. Of course we all have trials and those hard times in our lives, but so did christ. Through those hard times we need to pray even harder and just get lost in service, that is when the Lord is willing to bless us and lead us on our ways.

What is being a Mormon like?

It gives you such a new perspective on life. Some people think that we are different or weird but my favorite thing about the church of jesus christ is how we follow christ and his teachings. I am able to cope with daily problems as I turn to christ and have his full help/ a different understanding of things. Show more Show less
