Hi I'm Trent

I grew up in Colorado and Utah. I go to college in Utah. I love sports, especially football.

About Me

My name is Trent Smitley. I grew up in Colorado and a little in Utah. I love to play sports. I am 1 of 6 kids, I have the unique opportunity to have 3 parents. My family and friends are everything to me they have made me who I am through the hard times and the good. I have had tons of people be an example in my life like my parents and a couple of really great friends old and new. But there is only one person who has made me who I am and that is God. the center of my life is my belief in Christ and God. I know that without my belief I would be lost. God has guided me through sports, the issues of my life and the friends I have, but the biggest thing he helps me with now is my mission in Alabama. There isn't much more to know about me other than i love God, my family, my friends, and the examples in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

The reason why I'm a Mormon is because of all the great influences in my life. My parents, my friends, and the greatest person in the world Anita. All these people have helped me stay strong in what i believe and stood behind me and my decisions. They are my support. Life has a lot to throw at you always turn to the ones you have.

How I live my faith

well right now I'm serving a mission in Alabama. but other ways i show my faith is being an example and being there for others. i will never turn away from someone who needs help because i know the savior never would either. I also read my scriptures ever day and pray all the time and i attend church every week.

What do Mormons believe about the Bible? Do they regard it as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

well the answer to this questions is yes. we believe that the holy bible is the word of God and that it holds the truths to go to heaven, but we belive God talks to everyone and so we have the book of mormon wich is the word of God in this side of the world. it amazes me when people say that the bible is it and that God doesnt speak anymore or to anyone or that he wouldnt talk to a certain people. God loves us all and wants us to return to him so he provided a way to be followed on both sides of the world. so we cherish and use the bible but at the same time we us the other scriptures that he has given us.
