Hi I'm Collin

I love gazing into the sky on a stary night. I cut a mean kartwheel. Occasionally I enjoy a cool glass of lemonade. I'm a mormon.

About Me

MY FRIENDS CALL ME COLLIN, AND I AM INDEED MORMON. I WAS BORN OF GOODLY PARENTS WHO LOVE THE LORD. I WAS TEXAS GROWN, COMING UP STRONG IN VIDOR,AMERICA, AND DID REMAIN MY STOMPIN-GROUNDS THROUGH-OUT MY CHILDHOOD. I LOVE PLAYING SPORTS, AND PARTICIPATING IN GROUP ACTIVITIES. I LOVES TO KICK IT WITH MY FAMILY AND MY FRIENDS, AND ANYONE ELSE WHO IS AROUND. IN THE SUMMER I DO ANYTHING IN THE WATER PREFEREBLY WITH MY CREW, AND WE REMAIN SOGGY-BOTTOMED UNTIL IT GETS TOO COLD. I ENJOY LISTENING TO THE RED HOTS, AND SNACKING ON CORN NUTS (THANKS TO E.T.). I WORKED IN TEXAS REFINERIES AFTER HIGH SCHOOL AND THE ONLY THING THAT KEPT ME GOING WAS MY PLANS TO SERVE A MISSION FOR THE LORD. I LOVE THE GOSPEL. I LOVE THIS CHURCH. I LOVE MY FAMILY. AND I LOVE MY HEAVENLY FATHER WHO HAS MADE IT POSSIBLE FOR US TO LIVE, BE HAPPY, AND BE CLEAN SO THAT I MAY BE WITH MY FAMILY FOR ALL TIME AND ETERNITY. I KNOW THAT THIS IS THE LORD'S CHURCH MORE SO THAN I KNOW WHO I AM. I AM CURRENTLY SERVING A MISSION FOR THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER DAY SAINTS. I AM EXCEEDINGLY GREATFUL FOR SUCH AN OPPORTUNITY AND ALL THE BLESSINGS, KNOWLEDGE, AND JOY THAT IT BRINGS. I KNOW THAT THERE IS NO BETTER WAY TO BE SPENDING THIS TIME OF MY LIFE ,NOR IS THERE ANY OTHER PREFERENCE. I LOVE THE PEOPLE I MEET AS WELL AS THOSE I HAVE TEMPORARELY LEFT BEHIND. MY HEART HAS GROWN AND I HOPE WILL CONTINUE TO THROUGH-OUT THE REST OF THIS LIFE AND HEREAFTER.

Why I am a Mormon

I BELONG TO THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER-DAY SAINTS, BECAUSE IT IS TRULY THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST, IN THIS DAY AND AGE. THIS IS INDOUBTABLY A BOLD CLAIM TO BE MADE, HOWEVER HAS BEEN REVEALED TO ME PERSONALLY IN A WAY THAT I CANNOT DENY. AND FOR THIS REASON ALONE I HAVE DECIDED TO CONTINUE IN LIVING THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST, AND APPLYING HIS ATONEMENT IN MY LIFE DAILY. I KNOW THAT THE KINGDOM OF GOD WAS ESTABLISHED BY JESUS CHRIST WHILST IN HIS MORTAL MINISTRY. I KNOW THAT HE CALLED 12 APOSTLES BY THE AUTHORITY OF GOD. I KNOW THAT THAT AUTHORITY WAS LATER LOST AND IN NEED OF A RESTORATION BY GOD THROUGH HIS CHOSEN PROPHET. I KNOW THAT HE HAS RESTORED HIS TRUTH,HIS AUTHORITY, AND HIS CHURCH ALONG WITH IT’S ORIGINAL ORGANIZATION. AND HE HAS PROVIDED A WAY FOR THE US TO KNOW THIS TO BE TRUE FOR OURSELVES. THIS WAY IS THROUGH READING THE BOOK OF MORMON: ANOTHER TESTAMENT OF JESUS CHRIST. WE BELIEVE THE BIBLE ALONG WITH THE BOOK OF NORMON TO BE THE WORD OF GOD, AS FAR AS THEY ARE TRANSLATED CORRECTLY. TOGETHER THEY GIVE US THE FULLNESS OF THE TRUTH AND THE TESTIMONY OF TWO WITNESSES OF THE DIVINITY OF JESUS CHRIST OUR SAVIOR AND REDEEMER. WE INVITE ALL MEN EVERYWHERE TO READ, PONDER AND PRAY TO KNOW THE TRUTH OF THIS BOOK, AND TO SEEK THE CONFIRMATION THE HOLY GHOST.

How I live my faith

CURRENTLY I LIVE MY FAITH BY SERVING THE LORD AND HIS CHILDREN IN THE PHOENIX, AZ. AREA. HOWEVER, THIS GREAT OPPORTUNITY THAT I HAVE FOR FULL-TIME SERVICE IS VERY SHORT, AND BY NO MEANS DOES THIS GRADUATE ME FROM MY SERVICE TO THE LORD. I BELIEVE IN BEING A MODERN WITNESS IN WORD AND IN DEED OF CHRIST AND HIS DIVINITY. HIS EXAMPLE IS ONE THAT ALL SHOULD STRIVE TO EMULATE, AND WE DO THIS BY FREELY GIVING LOVE, SERVICE AND COMPASSION TO ALL THOSE THAT WE SEE. I DO MY BEST TO SERVE OTHERS, AND TO CONTINUALLY TREASURE UP THE WORD OF GOD BY DAILY SCRIPTURE STUDY. I KNOW THAT AS WE DO THIS, OUR WILL DOTH ALINE WITH THE WILL OF OUR HEAVENLY FATHERS. THEN WE WILL DESIRE TO LOVE AND SERVE THE WAY THAT OF HIS SON. AND I KNOW THAT AMOUNG THESE PRINCIPLES LIES TRUE HAPPINESS IN THIS LIFE AND IN THE NEXT. I LIVE MY FAITH BY CONTINUALLY STRIVING TO KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS THAT OUR HEAVENLY FATHER HAS GIVEN US, FOR IN THEM THERE IS SAFETY, PEACE, AND THE ETERNAL HAPPINESS OF WHICH HE BECKONDS ALL OF HIS CHILDREN TO PARTAKE.
