Hi I'm Zach

I'm a dreamer. There isn't a thing I can't do. My name is Zach Smith and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I get the privilege of working on the Gilbert Arizona temple, as a laborer. It gets hot out there, but I love building the Lords house. In May of this year I was the youngest racer to complete the St. George Iron Man. I love to run and be outside. Some of the best times that I have had were out in the woods camping with some of my closest friends. I love my family and what they do for me-in fact as I'm typing this my younger brother is making fun of my corny word choice.

Why I am a Mormon

All my life I have been a Mormon. There was a time that I started to wonder if what I was living was the right thing for me. So I decided to find out for myself. I read the Book of Mormon cover to cover in two weeks. I never got a huge vision that I should accept the gospel or even an explosion of emotion at the conclusion of my reading the Book of Mormon. I just knew. I knew inside of me that this is where I should be and who I should become. Now I engulf myself in the scriptures, feasting on them and praying for guidance. So there you go, I wasn't visited by angels or taken away in a vision. I found out for myself- And thats why I'm Mormon. I now know with out a doubt that the Lord knew us before our time here on earth. I believe that we walked with him and conversed about our long awaited journey in this world. I know that he sent his son-Jesus Christ-to die for us on earth. I know that Christ willingly chose to be our redeemer and loves each of us. I have a testimony of the Saviors atonement, that He knows all our fears and pains. He truly is my brother. I also know that the Lord has given us a modern day prophet that leads and guides us though revelation from on high. Just like our prophet in these days, I know that Joseph Smith was a man called of God for an amazing work. I know that Joseph was visited by Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ in a grove of trees. Joseph sacrificed all that he could for this church and I know that this gospel I true.

How I live my faith

I love to be a part of the youth Activities in my ward. They have such an amazing program that includes all that will come. In my ward I am called as one of the the ward missionaries. My fellow Missionaries and I look out for the ward and help those that are in need of financial, physical, and any other kind of help in their lives. I love to help others and hope to continue service in my life ahead.

What is faith?

Zach
Faith is believing in something with out seeing it. It's more than hope, it's a knowledge that something or some one exists with out a great amount of evidence of its being. Show more Show less
