Hi I'm Connor

I like . . . well, storylines of any kind. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hello!! I am Connor. I like to read, watch movies, and play games. I was born in Michigan and ended up in Oklahoma. I am apart of a family of seven (one older brother, two younger brothers, the youngest is a sister, and my parents). I like to spend any free time on the above things, but also enjoy many others. I am looking forward to going to school to become a doctor of oncology (cancer). And I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

Well, I grew up in the church. I was a person that just went through the motions. I always thought, "Mom and Dad are doing it, so I will too." That's how I was for awhile. But, as time past, it wasn't enough. I didn't have any motivation to do anything. I felt that I was just along for the ride. In school, I was always asked what I wanted to do when I grew up. I couldn't answer the same more than a few times. I felt that I couldn't accept that responsibility of a career. I finally drew a line. I needed to know something about myself. And it was at a pretty young age. At the age of fourteen, I decided that I needed to know if this was indeed true. I read the Book of Mormon and decided to take Moroni's challenge (Moroni 10:3-5). I prayed to know if this was true. The answer . . . didn't come immediately. I continued to pray and ask. Something finally clicked. I realized that I wasn't doing it with real intent. I wasn't willing to do whatever it took to follow the answer I was looking for. I then asked again, but at the end said, "I am willing to follow the answer to the end." I felt something that I can't describe and still can't. All I know is that I knew at that point of time what I needed to do. The career is something that I want to do. I experienced a change of heart and I now know that this church is true. Joseph Smith is a prophet of God. Jesus Christ is the Savior of the whole world. I know this is true.

How I live my faith

Right now. I am a teacher in the church. I am preparing to go to school. And I am having an amazing time doing it.
