Hi I'm Clay Ellsworth

I Play the Bagpipes and Love my Family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to make music. I try to learn to play any instrument I can get my hands on. I've played the Flute for 8 years. I was in the Marching Band, and loved it. I later picked up the Bagpipes, and have been playing those for a few years as well. I play a few different types of drums. Something in my heart stirs when I play music. I would like to go to college and get a degree in Psychology. I love watching people interact and trying to figure out why we do the things we do.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon all my life. My parents are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and I grew up going to church with them. I don't think that's enough though. I came to a point in my life where I wanted to know if I was doing the right thing. Every night, we would have family scripture study and talk about what we read. I remember one night my dad taught us that we can learn things from God through prayer. I decided to pray about my beliefs. I knelt down and poured my heart out to God. I expressed my desire to know the truth. I told him about my doubts, fears, and concerns. When I had said all that I wanted to say, I decided to let the Lord have a chance to talk. What happened next was a little bit hard to explain. I was filled with a small piece of His infinite love for us. It was almost like God himself reached out from heaven and hugged my soul. I sensed a peace about the path I was on. I was felt the Holy Spirit was wispering that both, the Book of Mormon and the Bible were true, and this is where God needs me to be.

How I live my faith

I'm currently serving as full-time missionary for the Church in Indiana. I live my faith by letting my light shine. I try to share the blessings that have come to me through my membership in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I invite others to be baptized in the same manner that Christ was baptized, and I strive to stay worthy to perform such a baptism. There are two types of people in the world: those you love, and those you don't yet know. I try to be a friend to those that I meet, and serve them in the same way that the Savior would.
