Hi I'm Varian

I'm from Soldotna Alaska. Live in Salt Lake Utah. I'm going to Culiacan Mexico mission. I live at the Provo MTC, Learning Spanish.

About Me

It has taken me a very long time to finally get to this point where I am ready spiritually to go and serve. Before my mission this is some stuff I did. I just went to high school. Swam on the high school team for four great years. Was never that outstanding of a swimmer, but loved it all the same. I've had a job since I was 14. I love working a being busy. I love being a missionary. Nothing better. Best Job ever, because your boss is the Lord.

Why I am a Mormon

I was just going to church to make my mom happy. I was there, but I wasn't there mentally. This was about two years ago I hit rock bottom. When you hit rock bottom you are given two choices. Stay there and rot away or you can start to clime back up. With alot of help, I climed back up. That was so hard to do. I thought "I'm not worth it. I don't deserve to here. I ruined my chance for a good life, I need to give up." But then I Heard Heavenly Fathers voice, and his gentle embrace. After all my faults, after all the mistakes I had made in my life God still wanted me. He still loved me no matter what I had done, and still loves me. Anything and everything is possible through Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ. With their help I was made whole again. I'm a Mormon because it makes me whole. Drives me to be a better man everyday and strive to be closer to Heavenly Father and to be more like his son Christ. Without the Gospel I wouldn't be here today. It saved me. I know without a doubt in my mind, body, and soul that this is the true church upon the Earth. I know that through Christ's ultimate sacrifice we can all be forgiven of whatever it is that brings you down. All it takes is a prayer to change your life.

How I live my faith

I try to live my life in a manor that when I lay my head down. After saying my prayers and climing into bed. That I can fall asleep knowing I did tried my best to live worthily. I am not perfect. Nor will I ever be perfect. God asks us to try our best everyday to live up to our potential. That is what i try and do.
