Hi I'm Zachary

I have SWAG and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I played varsity basketball and volleyball in high school and I also sang in the high school. I love hanging out with my family and friend, they mean the world to me. I enjoy doing all activities as long as I am having fun or see someone having fun. I work Monday- Friday from 9am to 4pm to save for my mission. Meeting new people is one of my favorite things to do because I am very outgoing and and get along with everyone. I have 2 brothers, 1 younger and 1 older and I have 1 sister that is married in the temple to her really cool husband and they have 2 little girls that I absolutely love. My mom and dad help to guide me in the right direction everyday. I have a couple of really good friends that just make me want to become a better person because everyone has room for improvment. But their is this one girl that is about to go on a mission and she just is the person that pushes me to my limits to be more like Christ and I love that feeling I get when I am around her because she always has good things to so. I look up to all of these people I have listed because they helped to make me who I am today, which is a gentleman that is preparing for a mission to go out to the world and teach people the gospel and show them that being mormon is amazing.

Why I am a Mormon

The reason why I am Mormon is because I read my scriptures every night before I go to bed and I get this amazing feeling inside that modivates me to keep on reading to learn more about the gospel. I also have a huge testimony in our church of Jesus Christ and because I know its true and I know Thomas S. Monson is the true Prophet of our days. But I am also Mormon because I know if I ever need anything I can go up to any other member and ask them for their help. Mormons are some of these nicest and most sincere people that are always willing to help out. I just dont know where I would be in life right now without the chuch.

How I live my faith

I go to church every Sunday for 3 hours and then I go home and eat dinner with my family and then I go to missionary prep for 1-2 hours during sunday evening. I dont drink, smoke or do any drugs whatsoever. I dont say the lords name in vane. I dont judge anyone for any reason no matter what they look or act like. And I just try to be the best person I can be. But I do it while having fun with my friends or family.

Are there restrictions based on race or color concerning who can join The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and have the priesthood?

No, skin color does not matter at all. Skin color doesnt matter period. All men are looked at as equals and any man that is worthy and baptised into the church is able to have the priesthood. Show more Show less

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Because families are forever and I holestly believe that. I am always going to be my parents son and my brothers and sisters brother. And I believe that everyone is related. Show more Show less
