Hi I'm Gus

I love basketball but not bugs.

About Me

I was adopted. I'm studying Business and Economics and I should have graduated like three years ago. Whoops. Basketball has been a huge part of my life and through it, I have learned many important lessons. I love to write and have been working on a number of related stories with my brother. Reading, watching movies, and listening to music are some of my passions, along with doing anything creative and anything that has to do with basketball. My family friends are huge parts of who I am. I love them.

Why I am a Mormon

My family joined the church when I was ten. I stopped going to church for awhile when I turned eighteen but by the time I was twenty two, I began to realize how empty my life was. I need the gospel of Jesus Christ back in my life. Changing for the better is never easy, but it is always worth it. Because of the Atonement of Jesus Christ I have been able to be healed spiritually and made whole. The gospel has helped me realize the type of husband and father I want to be. I know that we are all children of our Heavenly Father and He loves us perfectly.

How I live my faith

I try to do all the basics. Pray, read my scriptures, and seek to do good. Serving God and others allows me to have the Spirit so that I will always be guided on the right path. Sharing what I know to be true is what God has asked, so I do it. I strive to be obedient. It's not easy but I work to give my all.
