Hi I'm Spencer

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Spencer and I am 18 years old. I go to college, work, and play volleyball. I try hard throughout my life here on earth to live the gospel and become converted to the principles it presents. I plan on going on a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and sharing what I know with others because of the truthfulness of it. I have absolutely no idea what I'm going to do for a living though. I'm kind of worried about that haha. I love being with my family and hanging out with friends. I love to play ping pong, sand volleyball and being with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I have been a member of this church my entire life and many may believe that I am a member solely because of my parents influence, I am a member because of my knowledge of the truthfulness of this gospel. Although I do not always follow every commandment and principle perfectly, but I work hard to follow Jesus Christ's teachings and live his gospel. I want to share what I know with everyone because of the happiness it has brought to me. The joy of knowing that God's restored church is on the earth today and that God the Father and his son Jesus Christ really did appear to Joseph Smith, something I have come to know for myself, drives me to try and keep every commandment. Also, knowing that I can be with my family for eternity is a blessing I can hardly describe. It is very reassuring that I can be with God again through faith, repentance, baptism, and following the promptings of the holy ghost. I love the Church and I love my Savior Jesus Christ. The power of his atonement in my life has given me hope that despite my past transgressions I can become clean again. I know he died for all of us that we can live with him if we put our trust in him and become completely devoted to him. I know he has prophets on the earth today and that through following their advice we have a direct insight into what Christ wants us to do here on earth. I know I am a son of God and that he has a plan for me. I know that he is there and that if I ever need him to direct me in my life I can turn to him in prayer. I want others to feel his spirit so that they too can become converted and feel the happiness and joy that I have in my life.

How I live my faith

I try hard in my life to be kind to others and stand true to my beliefs particularly in my school. However, this is very difficult and even though I sometimes falter I try to follow Christ and I can always do better. I work to serve others in my church callings which involves organizing wholesome activities for the youth and learn about the gospel through both the Book of Mormon and the Bible which provides insights into my life. Mainly I try to follow in Christ's footsteps and reflect his great example. I love God and will always try to do what he wants me to do.
