Hi I'm Elder Snyder

I have lived in 16 different places. I'm a huge band geek. I'm a nerd. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of 6 kids. My dad is military so I have lived in California, Arizona, Georgia, Indiana, Utah, Missouri, Virginia, Ohio, Nebraska, Louisiana, and Kentucky, some of them multiple times. I am a full-time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I like to play all kinds of sports, especially rugby and soccer. I am a massive band geek, everything from jazz band to marching band to saxophone quartets. I am also a nerd and love to talk about chemistry and math. If I could pick one word to describe me, it would be CRAZYYY!! I am excited and enthusiastic about everything I do and I love to make people laugh :)

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love the feeling I get when the Spirit is SO strong that I literally break down in tears. I love the cleansing feeling I get when the Spirit touches my heart. By being a member of the Church, I can have the Lord's influence on my life all the time. The Church gives me many opportunities to serve others and to help others to come unto Christ. I love the feeling I get during church on Sundays and when we sing the hymns. The Church gives me guidelines that when followed allow me to reach my full potential and be a more joyful person. I know that the Gospel is true and that Christ really did suffer in Gethsemane so that all of us can be saved from our transgressions and be eternally happy with our families. I know that by living the gospel, I can see my family again after I die. Christ is so important to me in my life. "The joy that this sweet sentence gives, I know that my Redeemer lives!!"

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving the Lord with all my heart, might, mind, and strength each day. I wake up at 6:30 AM and I work hard to be a better missionary until I go to bed at 10:30 at night. I try to keep the Spirit with me at all times by being obedient to the Lord's commands and keeping my thoughts and actions clean.
