I love being in the mountains and love fishing. before my mission I was a knife maker. I will be going to BYU-Idaho. after my mission. I love sports, I love sports I played baseball but love volleyball. I love cheese. :)

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church and my parents taught me, and I was raised in that culture, and just kinda went with it, but I soon realized that it wasn't enough, that I needed to know for my self. I prayed and read my scriptures but even that wasn't enough for me. I needed to use what I knew and when I started acting upon this knowledge that's when things got better and I started to know that Jesus is the Christ and that through His atonement we can overcome all things. I'm a Mormon because I have seen the hand of God in my life and have felt the powers of the Atonement. Christ gives us hope that we cant find anywhere else and through this gospel I have felt this hope and want to share it with others.

How I live my faith

Right now I am in Hungary as a missionary, I teach people about the church and the blessings of the gospel, but i live my faith by acting on the things that I know. I have had many trials through out my life, and may doubts, but I have found that when I use this knowledge of the gospel in my everyday life, I see that it is true and that we are not alone. I try to think about Christ and always remember him and try to what he would do. Of course I'm not perfect, but that's why we need Christ so we can be strong and do what we need to to follow Him.

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

If you read in the introduction of the Book of Mormon, it says that by reading this book and abiding by its precepts one will get nearer to god. When we read this book and follow its councils we come to know God as our loving father in heaven, and His son Jesus Christ. we build this relationship with them and come to understand their nature and have this relationship like a father and his child. no other book can do that or promise that.
