Hi I'm Coley

I'm a full-time missionary in Carlsbad, California. I love singing and all kinds of music. I love my Savior and his gospel.

About Me

I'm 19 years old and I am currently a missionary in the California Carlsbad mission! I love it! Before I came here I was attending BYU-Idaho as a Music Education major and plan to go back after my mission. I'm the oldest of 4 kids and I probably sing more than I talk.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Latter-Day Saints (Mormon) because I was born into a family with LDS parents who raised me in the church. Over time I have developed my own firm testimony of this gospel and continue to work on my testimony. I have read the Book of Mormon and received an answer that it is God's word. I am a Mormon because it gives me an opportunity to make friends who have the same standards as me and who will help me to stay on the right path so that I can live with my Father in Heaven again. I am a Mormon because I know that when I follow the standards, listen to the the Prophet, Thomas S. Monson, and live my life as the Savior would have me, I am a happier person. I am a Mormon because I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the true gospel here upon this earth.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by I striving to be an example to those around me by following my Savior and only doing what would be pleasing to Him. I share the gospel with my friends and teach them about Heavenly Father's plan for us. I live my faith by praying for the strength to do what is right every day and by standing up for what I believe in. I will serve an 18 month mission and devote all of my time to my Savior so that others can develop their own faith.
