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?

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
