Hi I'm Colton

I play football. I laugh til I can't breathe. I'm a momma's boy. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a young man currently serving a mission in the Washington Seattle Mission. I love life, and you can often find me cracking a joke or laughing just for the fun of it. I find joy in most all things and I often love serving my fellow man! I have played sports my whole life and I often like lifting weights and being in the gym. Football is my anger management and relaxation tool. Theres nothing better than working as hard as you can and seeing the fruits of my labors and working and relying on a team. I find joy in mowing the lawn and just being outside. Work is my remedy to adversity. I love hanging out with friends and being the center of attention.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because of the joy the fullness of this gospel gives me. I was born into the church but never really had my own testimony till my senior year of high school. It took me 18 years to realize that this gospel was a "Perfect game plan." I always just went through the motions and followed the example of my parents, living off of the testimony of my parents. While on a trip I was asked by a complete stranger why I was a mormon. I couldn't answer him....It changed my life. I began to pray and to actually gain my own testimony. I felt the loving hands of the savior in my life and felt the spirit grow slowly in my heart. I was no longer melancholy but grew exponentially in the feelings I had for the truthfullness of this gospel. I love the happiness I feel when I come closer to my Savior. If anything else, now I know that Jesus is the Christ. The joy I feel is from him and I can never deny that.

How I live my faith

My family and I do lots of service for others and run a lot of service projects for the community. I am an Eagle Scout. I live my faith by taking one foot in front of the other and just pushing though life. I spend my life trying to make someone elses day. I also live my faith by offering the happiness to others. It could be a smile a phone call or a letter, if i haven't made someone smile today then I haven't done my job.
