Hi I'm Race

I'm a college student. I love reading and free food. I'm left handed, I love cheesecake and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am an English major at a community college in Arizona. I speak Spanish fluently (which I learned as a missionary in Guatemala) I am a little shy but I love good music and photography. I'm a sucker for Shakespeare and I can't say no to a good hamburger. I have 10 nieces and nephews and I love them all!

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member all of my life, but just like anyone else, I have had to make up my own mind about what I believe. I am a member of this church because it is the only church that can satisfactorily answer the questions I have about life. Because of this church and Jesus Christ, its founder, I have full confidence in my ability to succeed in life. I know that no matter what happens in this out-of-control world, I have answers and I know the truth. I know that the Bible is the word of God, as is the Book of Mormon. I know that God loves all his children, ancient, modern, black, white, old, young, smart, dumb, living, dead, tall and short. I am certain that just as God called prophets anciently, like Moses, Noah, Abraham, and Issac, that he has once again began to call men to his work. I know that Thomas S. Monson is a prophet. I love this church and all the peace it brings me!

How I live my faith

In our Church, all positions and assignments are filled by volunteers, there is no paid clergy or service givers. We give our time and talents to the church by our own free will. I have the assignment of being the vice-president of the Mormon young adult organization at my College. There are about 800 students in the organization and we are constantly planning and putting on activities. Additionally, I teach a Sunday school class at the local chapel where I attend. I find it difficult at times to balance my school work, social life, and church responsibilities, but the satisfaction and spiritual strength I get from serving others is worth the effort.
