Hi I'm Justin

I love soccer, the New York Knickerbockers (greatest team ever!) and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I grew up in the beautiful state of Montana! It was an amazing place to grow up. I loved playing soccer all year round. Spring, summer, fall or winter it don't matter! I also loved hanging out with friends, playing golf, basketball and dominating the ski slopes. If the whole college thing doesn't work, the NBA draft will be calling my name for sure... In all seriousness for now I've decided to take my talents to the Wisconsin Milwaukee Mission for the next two years. After my two year full-time mission I'll be going to school at BYU, which I am pumped for!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church, which is something that I will be eternally thankful for. Even though I was born into the church, I had to gain my own testimony of the truthfulness of the restored gospel. My testimony is everything to me! It allows me to strive each and every day to become more like the Savior. I've really found that gaining a testimony of the Gospel comes from prayer, study and experience. Through that I have come to know of the divinity of Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I know that the Book of Mormon really is another testament of Jesus Christ and that Joseph Smith was truly a prophet of God. This knowledge of the Restored Gospel has brought so much happiness and peace into my life. And I know that everybody can have that same joy and comfort that I have been able to experience. What a blessing from Heavenly Father!

How I live my faith

I really live my faith every day by doing really the small and simple things of the Gospel. These things include sincere prayer and scripture study. When I really pray and read the scriptures with real intent, I get so much out of it. It just builds my faith so much. Attending church every Sunday is another thing that I do throughout the week to strengthen my faith. When I was growing up, I really just went to church to see my friends and such. But now, I really have come to see the blessings that come from approaching church with a more prayerful attitude. I have really come to love attending church to enjoy the Spirit that is so strong there!
