Hi I'm Seth

I was born in Rexburg, Idaho. I served a two year mission in North Carolina! Been married over a year and a half and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am an older brother to three younger siblings who I love! I love being with them. Being an older brother is the best! I am the son of an amazing, fun and loving mom and dad. Family is a big part of my life. I love playing sports. I played football and baseball in high school. Sports are probably some of the biggest things in my life. I also like exercise and activity- occasionally some video games. But I try to stay in shape! I am an Eagle Scout. Some of my hobbies include hanging out with friends, going four-wheeling, hunting, almost anything outdoors and just having a good, fun time! I have had some experiences where I am lucky to be moving and active today. I am happy almost all the time! I had the privilege to serve a two year mission in the Raleigh, North Carolina Mission and loved it! I have been married to the most wonderful woman for over a year and a half! I am currently going to school at BYU-Idaho to further my education.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because both of my parents were Mormon and raised me in the church. Because of that though, I didn't just believe it was true. I don't think I really "believed." As I have grown up, I have come to know for myself that this church is true and the right church for me. I have seen miracles in my life that I know wouldn't have been able to happen if it wasn't true. I know this church is true. Because I know this, I am currently serving a two year mission in North Carolina. I know that because we have a loving Heavenly Father, we again have modern day prophets and apostles on the Earth. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God and that he restored Christ's church. I know that he translated the Book of Mormon and that because it is His church, it won't be taken off this Earth again. I know that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ and that it is the true Word of God. Through this book a man will grow closer to God than through any other book. I know that God will allow any sincere seeker of truth to come to know this for themselves-regardless of their situation. His church is for EVERYONE. I am far from perfect and have made mistakes but through Christ's atoning sacrifice I know He loves me. I know I can be forgiven for things I mess up on and feel at peace with Him and myself. I know this church is what will lead me back to live with God again. I know that this church is meant to help us to learn, grow, and progress in this life. He has given us families so that we can be happy- not only here but in the next life as well. I love my family and will always believe this church. This is Christ's true and restored church on Earth.

How I live my faith

I try to help others come to feel the happiness I have in my life. I try to help others become more Christlike. I strive to find what God's will is for me. I participate by receiving callings and leadership positions and serve to the best of my ability in those callings. I do the best I can for the church. I know I am far from perfect but He can help me be my best. I am serving a two year mission because I love it- this is how I show it and live it. I love the church!
