Hi I'm Triton

I'm a husband to my best friend. I'm a college student, martial artist, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm happily married to my best friend and sweetheart who loves to go on adventures with me, and puts up with my shenanigans. I'm currently going to college, studying human movement and kinesiology. I want to become a chiropractor for my career. I'm fascinated by the structure and function of the human body, and being able to use that knowledge to help people stay healthy is even better! I love to study martial arts for fun and self defense. I've studied several different arts including Kajukembo karate, Aikido, and Aiki-jujitsu. I've trained with several different weapons from European broadswords, to karambits, to Native American tomahawks. I think martial arts are great fun, and make for a fantastic hobby, healthy exercise, and helping me feel a little more confident in handling whatever life throws at me. When I'm not in school or working I love to be in the outdoors. Camping, hiking, fishing, hunting, river rafting, shooting guns, throwing knives and tomahawks, you name it! I love to get crafty and build outdoorsy projects as well. For example, I built my own river raft and snow shoes so I'm set to have fun in summer or winter! I have a slightly "geeky" side as well. I'm a huge fan of J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings." I learned how to read and write with elvish runes as well as dwarfish runes. I also learned to write with ancient Nordic futhark runes just for fun! (And since they're so similar to Lord of the Rings dwarfish).

Why I am a Mormon

Yeah, I was born and raised in the church; but the choice to join and embrace the restored gospel of Jesus Christ was completely my decision. I had been raised hearing and reading the stories from the Book of Mormon and the teachings of the gospel, and I decided that it was something that I wanted to follow, even if I didn't fully understand or know for a fact that the things being taught were true. In the years following my baptism I read the Book of Mormon cover to cover for the first time, and prayed and asked God if it is true. I recieved an answer to my prayer. I'm a Mormon, not because my parents are Mormons, but because I know for myself that it's true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying my hardest every day to become more like Jesus Christ, by listening to and following the counsel of a living prophet that God has called in our day, serving others, and doing my best to help others understand the joy and ultimate happiness that comes from knowing and living the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Yes, I believe that God has called a prophet in our day. To me, the fact that God calls prophets is a manifestation of His love and care for us. If God called prophets, such as Moses, in the time of Ancient Israel, wouldn't He call prophets to guide us today? Did God love the Ancient Israelites more than us? Absolutely not! God loves all of his children, and wants to help them through all the ages of the world; including ours. Prophets relay God's instructions specifically for each generation. Show more Show less
