Hi I'm Houston

"Raised in Gilbert. I spent most of my life doing hands-on activities like drum line, shooting sports. I'm a Mormon."

About Me

I'm 19 years old and I have live in Arizona my entire life. I have been going to college to study biology to hopefully become a microbiologist. I hope to finish college in another state for a change. I like comedy because I love to laugh and pull small pranks.

Why I am a Mormon

I have only been mormon all of my life. I have always kind of just gone through the motions of being part of the mormon church. So, growing up I was always kind of curious what other different religions believed in. As I started to ask questions about other religions and some of the answers that I recieved about other faiths were very similar to what I believe. Then there were the parts of other religions that were disturbing. One of the biggest things was "at death do we part", being part the wedding ceremony of other of other churches made me realize that other religions don't believe in eternal families. I couldn't accept the reality of leaving my family after death and it was a big turning point for me. It made me think because being mormon all my life, I was taught that families eternal and would god really want families to be just earthly. Over time I went to the lord with my questions of church and I felt an overwhelming feeling that being part of The Church Of Jesus Christ Latter Day Saints is what needs to happen and I'm here to tell you it's the true church of the lord.

How I live my faith

In the last few months I have been teaching the youth in my ward and learned what it means to be a missionary. Looking to god to help me to know what to teach has strengthened my testimony. It has really helped me in preparing myself to serve the lord for 2 years on a mission. Knowing that living my life in faith and service to the lord he can't lead me astray. If I have learned anything always bet on the lord because even though you might know why things happen in your life, his plan is always better than any of ours.
