Hi I'm Christian

I'm a musician, I'm in college, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a Music Therapy Major studying at Utah State University. I'm currently a sophomore and I play guitar, mandolin, banjo, bass, viola, violin and a bit of piano. Music has always been a very important part of my life, and has helped me cope with quite a bit of life's stresses. I recently proposed to my girlfriend, and the two of us are looking forward to a long and happy eternity. We met on a blind date set up by my roommate and her cousin. The first date was a bit awekward, but we eventually got things rolling, and are now looking forward to our wedding in December. I currently work at a local restaurant as a server /busser. It's not a huge income, but it pays the bills and puts food in my pantry, so I consider myself blessed. I served an LDS mission to Lithuania from 2008-2010. The miracles I witnessed there have truly become part of who I am. Seeing the atonement of Jesus Christ take effect in the lives of people who have dealt with economic hardships and the effects of Soviet Russia will forever change who I am.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, first and foremost, because I have received a spiritual witness to the truthfulness of God's plan of happiness and the Book of Mormon. I have read the Book of Mormon over and over, and every time I do, I get a warm feeling in my chest and tingles up my spine. The thought also comes to me, "This is not a work of fiction. No 14-year-old farmboy in the 1800s could create such a book. It fits with the Bible ("he who has ears to hear, let him hear"), and clarifies many doctrines that have been left up to human interpretation.

How I live my faith

Since returning how from my mission I have found that nearly every conversation leads to the Savior and most have spiritual lessons hidden in them. If we are aware that they are there, we can learn from the spirit at any time and in any place.
