Hi I'm Hans

I live in Arizona, I play basketball, I sing, I play the piano. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love life! i honestly have nothing to complain about! I'm a senior in high-school at 16 years old! I absolutely love music! I love playing piano, I love dancing, I love singing, I love just listening to it! whenever i feel down i just listen to or play music and im happy! i believe that we always have the option to be happy, and why in the world would anyone choose to be sad! I love playing basketball, no other sport comes close to it! (it helps that i'm 6' 3") I also love being in plays! they are a great way to meet tons of awesome friends! (and girls). I am always happy! why in the world would I not be? as long as the sky is blue! (and its Arizona so there's never a cloudy day!

Why I am a Mormon

My religion is what keeps me afloat! there's a reason the plan of salvation is also known as the plan of happiness! people often ask me why i'm always happy and my only explanation is that i know what i'm here for and what i can become! many people than go on to say something along the lines of my life being easy, or that i haven't had any difficult trials, that's the real reason i can maintain a smile on my face and not have the occasional bad day. this is normally when i explain to them that when i was seven my father died. If that and everything that has come from that such as having to cope with a step-family very different from mine (who i love very much!) and several other things than yes i do have an easy life! but because of my knowledge of the Gospel I know that i will see my father again! this statement has helped me through the bad times. and i know for a fact that as long as i continue to do my best to keep the commandments i can be happy. both in this life and the life to come.

How I live my faith

I try my best to live up to my standards. that is one of the most important things to me. at school people when someone cusses i dont even have time to say anything! those that know me explain to the person that i dont like it when people say things like that. I love going to church and feeling the spirit on a weekly basis, it helps me get through my week. also reading the book of Mormon is another thing that helps me, it gives me the measure of the spirit that i need to get through my day. my religion is what shapes me and defines me. I love going to the temple and try to go once a month, its an amazing experience.
