Hi I'm Zach

Student at Brigham Young University. Outdoors and sports enthusiast. Love to learn and read.

About Me

I love to be physically active. Whether it's playing sports, hiking, running, snowboarding, wakeboarding or anything else, I love to be doing things outside and enjoying the outdoors. I have loved to play sports since I was a little kid. They have taught me many valuable lessons in life and have helped me develop a strong work ethic. In high school I loved to serve others and packed my schedule with everything I could. I served on the student government at my school for four straight years and loved to serve those in my school and community. I attended Brigham Young University and had the opportunity to play football. I took two years of time off from school and sports to serve a mission for the Church. That opportunity has richly blessed my life. I was able to have incredible experiences as I served the people of Chile. I enjoy the time I get to spend with my family, and try to live life to the fullest by preparing myself to take advantage of every opportunity that comes my way.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the guidance and direction the restored gospel of Jesus Christ has given me in my life. I can receive spiritual guidance and have full access to the Atonement of Jesus Christ through ordinances such as Baptism. Because of the restoration of the gospel, through prophets today I can be lead in the right direction. No matter what trial or hardship I may have in life, I always have more perspective on what is important. As I have applied the principles of the gospel of my Savior Jesus Christ I am happy. And when I follow him and keep his commandments I find myself enjoying life rather than trying to get through it. I know that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, that he performed the Atonement for each of us to use. I know that his gospel was restored though Joseph Smith and that prophets today lead and guide Jesus Christ's church. I know that we have a living prophet today Thomas S. Monson and that the Book of Mormon is true and is Another Testament of Jesus Christ. As you begin to read and study that book greater peace and happiness will begin to come into your life. My testimony is apart of who I am and what I do. It is ingrained in every aspect of who I am.

How I live my faith

Right now I am serving a mission in Chile, Antofagasta. I work on becoming more like our Savior Jesus Christ every day and my purpose as a missionary is to help others do the same. My purpose is to invite others to come unto Christ and to let Christ change their lives. Every day I look to help those who need the power of the Atonement of Jesus Christ in their lives.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Mormons do not worship Joseph Smith. We worship God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ. We love and admire the prophet Joseph Smith for the sacrifices he made to restore lost truths to the earth. Show more Show less

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is called Another Testament of Jesus Christ. Prophets in the ancient Americas maintained and wrote upon plates that were passed down to each generation. The prophets wrote of their experiences and their testimonies of Christ. In the Book of Mormon we can learn about God's plan for us and of the divinity of Jesus Christ. The Book of Mormon ends with the promise that those who pray and ask with real intent to know about its truth will receive an answer by the Holy Ghost. Show more Show less
