Hi I'm Clinton

I'm a musician, a poet, a surfer, and I'm a Mormon .

About Me

I was born in Idaho, my dad was in the military but he retired when i was young. I grew up in California right by the coast, but every summer my family vacations in Idaho and works on my grandfathers farm. I have fond memories of waking up early in the morning and milking cows or moving pipe. In high school i worked at a retirement home as a waiter. I loved my job, and it allowed me to interact with older people and learn from them. It was such a great experience. I love being in the outdoors. I love going to the beach with friends. I love boating with my family and camping. I love the smell of wet grass, i love the feeling of being sore after a hard days work. And i love my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I Choose to be a member of this church because i have seen the gospel bless the hearts and the minds and the lives of the people around me. I choose to remain a member of this church because everyday i feel Gods love for me through the Holy Ghost. I have a testimony of God and his great love for his Children. There have been so many times in my life that i have sought help, through pray and study. I will always remember one such occasion,i haven't seen my little brother in about a year, and one day i let the feelings affect me, an i was taken up in this longing to see him, at that time i felt really sad. Then I decided to pray for comfort and as in right as i closed my prayer, still kneeling on the ground ... i heard a song start playing from the upstairs in our house, the song is Called " Go bring them in" and the song is so meaningful to me because my brother plays the violent and a couple years ago my brother played in a special musical group and that is one of the songs they played. As the notes and chords began to fill my mind, i was taken back. I felt so much love and happiness flood my body, it was like heavenly father was allowing me to feel my brothers love. I ts a feeling that is hard for me to describe in any language. But i know it came from God, I know he lives, and he loves each and everyone of us. He knows our name, and that is my testimony in the name of our redeemer Jesus Christ amen.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through strengthening others. I live my faith through sharing my testimony. I live my faith through my thoughts and actions. I live my faith by always standing as a disciple of Jesus Christ. I live my faith through my family. I live my faith through my music, and poetry. I live my faith through the way i act, when no one is watching.

What is the role of the husband and the wife in the family?

The role of parents is to take care of their children. Parents are so important, everyday I see kids, who don't have parents. Usually they have little clothing, there dirty, and shoeless. . . Its sad, its heartbreaking, its hard. That is the reason that the role of a mother and a father is so crucial. Without it, only a small percentage of children survive. Only a small percentage of children reach there full potential. Even Jesus had parents, he had an earthy father and mother, when he was born his family was there, that really shows how important family's are to God. Jesus is perfect, through his example and through following him we can become perfect too. If we follow Jesus then we follow our parents. If our parents set good examples, and If they work together, then we will learn to love and serve each other and we will all become more like our savior Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
