Hi I'm Malcolm

I'm a lacrosse player, I'm a hip hop dancer, I love Weezy, What can i say? I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Hey my name is Malcolm. I'm from Salt Lake City, Utah. Growing up I played hockey, football, basketball, and baseball. Lacrosse is where my game is at though. I'm hoping to play in college after my mission. I love photography, I love dancing, especially Hip-Hop. I love The Jerk, The Dougie, and The Cat-Daddy. I dance every chance I get. I love Lil Wayne and Tech N9ne. I love life; everyday is a Holladay, and a blessing from above.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up like any average kid in Salt Lake City. I had great parents and a great family who loved me dearly. Unfortunately I got lost growing up. My whole high school life I felt like there was a dark cloud above me constantly. Due to the choices I made growing up I was very disconnected from god. I felt lost and lonely very often. I tried to fix my unhappiness by running from my problems and hiding. I tried to cover my pain with worldly things, it brought only temporary happiness. After years of running, lying, cheating, and stealing, I hit rock bottom. I couldn’t go on any longer. Satan had taken his toll on me and I was exhausted. I knew I needed to change my life, but I didn’t know how. I didn’t know where to start. I remembered when I was little my parents taught me simple truths such as prayer and reading the scriptures. I hadn’t said a prayer on my own for probably two years. The reason why I never said my prayers is I didn't feel worthy enough to pray. I didn't feel important enough to speak to my Heavenly Father, but I forced myself to pray. I got down on my knees and as I began to pray tears started streaming down my face. I asked Heavenly Father to please help me change my life. I didn’t want to be the person I was, I hated myself. I prayed longer than I ever have before. I was completely exhausted by the time I stood up. The next day heavenly father answered my prayer. He led me to meet a man named brad Wilcox. As I introduced myself to this man, he already knew my name, and he embraced me. Brother Wilcox then said to me “you have such a strong, good heart. I know your mother thinks so too. You will be the best missionary ever. You will turn the world upside down. You will be amazing, I can tell. That's why Satan works extra hard on you. He knows you will change people’s lives. That's why you need to stay strong.” The answer to my prayer was I needed to serve a mission. I then fought as hard as I could to get to a mission and here I am today

How I live my faith

Today I am serving a mission in Charlotte North Carolina, I took the answer to my prayer and I ran with it. It was very hard fighting my carnal nature and changing my life. Since being out on my mission I have learned the true meaning of life. I have found the secret recipe for true happiness. Learning and living the gospel of Jesus Christ for the first time in my life has brought me so much happiness. I went from the rock bottom to on top of the world. I have learned gods plan for his children, it brings me so much peace and joy. I have gained self respect for myself, through Jesus Christ. I respect myself and I know who I am and why I am here on earth. With that knowledge I can focus my time and my efforts on others. I spend every day trying to serve others and help others change their lives. I want others to feel the happiness that I feel through the gospel of Jesus Christ. I have learned that serving others brings more happiness than serving myself. I now strive everyday to continue to change. To continue to learn and grow in the gospel and become the man that god wants me to become. Satan tells us we shouldn't pray. He tells us we aren’t worthy enough. If I would have allowed Satan to tell me I wasn't worthy enough to pray, none of this would have happened, and none of this would be happening right now. I honestly believe I wouldn’t be here today if didn’t pray that night. One single prayer led me to happiness and changed my life. Brad Wilcox once said “when you feel unworthy to pray, that is the time you need to pray the most”
