Hi I'm Owen

I grew up in Missouri, U.S.A. I'm a college student. My passions are: Film-making, Skateboarding, Music, Dance, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a 22 year old college student studying video productions. I love to film, take photographs, I enjoy hip hop dancing, summertime, playing the guitar, music of all genres, and skateboarding. I am from a fairly large city. I am the youngest of 5 children in my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been immersed in the Mormon culture for many years as a child. I grew up in the church. My family is very active in the church. Though I was very active throughout my adolescence, I did not have a very strong testimony or belief that the things I learned in Church were true. I did not know for myself. Then came a time in my life as a teenager when I really started to pay attention to the things I was being taught. I began to see the real life application of the principles I learned before in my life now. This is when I gained my own witness that all of it was true. I began to feel a presence of peace and comfort and joy in my life that wasn't so evident before. I prayed more often and started to recognize feelings from God through the Holy Ghost. My life was a lot more complete. I then served a two year mission for the church and experienced miracles that I had never anticipated. I love being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I am grateful for everything I have learned and felt thus far in my life. This is why I am the person I am. It is because of Jesus Christ and HIS restored church to which I belong. Prayer is a simple act of communication between us and God, however it is a profound method of learning. I love the gospel. It defines who I am.

How I live my faith

I am assigned to teach a sunday school class in which we discuss principles taught by Jesus from the bible and the Book of Mormon.
