Hi I'm Hunter!

I love making people smile. I'm a strong advocate of loving ALL of God's children through word and deed. I love God. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Up until the end of high school, volleyball was my life. I was able to win the state championship with my team my senior year and it was an amazing experience. However, soon after high school ended, and I moved away to college in Utah, I realized there was more to life. I have come to think about about others and the Savior more; I feel such a greater purpose in getting up each morning. I strive to make others smile and make my Savior proud of me on a daily basis. It's not easy, but it brings me so much peace and true joy. I love photography, listening to music, and reading a good book. I love my family and friends. The Gospel puts all of the things I care about most in this world in one place. I have been called to serve as a missionary for 18 months in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I can't wait to bring the good news to the people there. I know with every fiber of my being that God loves each and every one of his children. He wants them to be happy. We can find true happiness through the words of Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

There is nothing that brings me more joy than being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints! I know that this is the true church on the earth today and that the full gospel and priesthood has been restored. Our Prophet, Thomas S. Monson, along with his apostles and other leading quorum members, receive inspiration from God and guide our church. I know they have been called my God! General conference confirms my testimony of that every time I watch it. The Book of Mormon, Doctrine & Covenants, and Pearl of Great Price are the words of God. They testify of Christ and his teachings, and they challenge us to become more like him. I feel the spirit each time I read and ponder about their messages. The Bible is also the word of God, and I love to read it. Temples are truly houses of the Lord, and I know the work done in them are necessary for salvation. I know I can live with my heavenly father again if I can follow his commandments and endure to the end.

How I live my faith

Living my faith is not a simple task. In order to be the best disciple of Christ that I can be, I must think about Him before every word I speak or decision I make. It's not easy, and I make mistakes all the time, but through the Atonement and power of the Holy Ghost, I can repent and learn from the past. Preaching the Gospel through my actions is important; but now it is evident to me that I must also serve the Lord full time on a mission! I cannot wait to serve the people of Pennsylvania.

What is the Law of Chastity?

The law of chastity is simple. God has commanded his children to save sexual relations for marriage only. That marriage must be between a man and a woman. Once in the binding powers of marriage, we must only have those relations with our spouse. The world today would have us believe that we should live in the moment and do with our bodies as we please. However, that is not God's plan for us! He gave us our bodies and we should respect them and keep the commandments he has asked us to follow. Show more Show less
