I have 3 guitars an Applause acoustic, Ibaneaz elecritc, and a BC Rich Warlock electric. They're like my kids, for now atleast. I love the outdoors and like hikeing, camping, wakeboarding, and water and snow skiing. I love sunsets, evening walks and the stars, I know alot about them too. I'm the oldest of 6 kids and used to being the guinea pig of everything! I love trying new things all the time cuz. After my mission I plan on going to college to study Mechanical Engieneering and follow in the footsteps of a lot of my family in becoming and Engieneer.

Why I am a Mormon

In my Junior year of highschool I started to question the beliefs my parents had taught me up to believe, and in doing so I started going against them. In time I realized the path I was on was not leading me toward the place I wanted to be. One summer my ward put on this camp for all the young men called Camp Helamen. I was reluctent to go, but went anyway. At this camp we had a lot of fun physical competitons along with some very amazing spiritual experiences. In One of those experiences we were given a white bag. We were told that this was our bag, and no one could carry it for us, no matter how heavy it got. There were about 6 or 7 stations that we went through where there were large piles of black gravel with about 4 young men leaders standing around them. At the first one they had soup cans cut in half filled with some of this gravel. We were told to hold our bag open while one by one each leader came up to us stateing a sin that we had commited, like lieing to my parents for exsample, and dumped this gravel into my bag. As I continued along this path, the cut in half soup cans turned into full sized coffee cans. These cans were full to the brim with this gravel, and as the cans got bigger, the sins they told us were worse. At the last station my bag probably weighed between 65 to 70 pounds, and was really hard to pick up. But because no one else but me could pick up this bag, I had too. I came around this bend of a hill and looked at the top, where a picture of Christ was sitting. This hill was steep, and the people at the top said climb this hill and you can set your bag down at the feet of the Savior. As I began to go up this hill it was tough, it was steep and i sliped a couple of times. But finnally got to the top with the help of my bishop who said "I may not be able to carry it for you, but I can help you lift your burdens" and with that he helped me set this bag down at the feet of the savior. Because of this I know that the Atonement is for all of us!

How I live my faith

I live my faith day by day. Trying to be an exsample to my younger siblings. I know that we all fall short, and because of the savior and his Atoning sacrifice we are able to repent, change and become better. I am Currently serving a mission for 2 years in the Colorado Denver North Mission, where I'm shareing what we believe and what I knot with all of my heart to be true, the gospel of Jesus Christ. It has been an exciting time for me and I've learned a lot from it.
