Hi I'm Christian

I'm a pickleball player. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Mormon. I am a missionary. I am a brother to my siblings. I am very active in sports. I am very competitive. I've always enjoyed swimming and running. But recently I have come across both frisbee golf and also pickleball. When I am not a missionary sharing the gospel I enjoy hanging out with friends, going to the movies, playing video games, and going on road trips. My family is a very important thing in my life. I enjoy spending time with them. I have three sisters and a brother so there is never a boring day in my house. I have always enjoyed being outside either playing sports or going camping. I am an Eagle Scout, so I have spent a lot of time in the scouting program.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church because my parents were both members. I enjoyed going to church each sunday and going to other activities that the church offers for teenagers, like dances, sport activities, camping, and other activities with kids my age. But every member comes to a point in their lives, if they were born into the church, they have to decide if this church really if for them or not. I was always hearing everyone say that this church was true and they knew it without a doubt. But myself I never had such a strong belief like them. So I decided that I would give it a try, and figure out for myself whether this was the right church to be apart of or not. I decided to read the Book of Mormon from cover to cover. And during and after I finished I prayed asking God if this was the true church on the earth. And I got my answer. It was not a slap in my face or some amazing experience, it was just that I felt in my heart that it was true and felt this warm feeling. And I know that when I follow the commandments that God has given me that my daily life is improved, and that I know that my life would be a lot different if I didn't have the church in my life. I continue to follow because I know that if the church wasn't in my life that I would be living a completely different life right now.

How I live my faith

I am a missionary for my church so a lot of things go into service. Missionaries give up two years of their lives to basically serve the people wherever they are called to go. Before my mission I enjoyed giving service and even now on my mission I still enjoy giving it. Before my mission I would often help an old lady of our church in her back yard maintaining it to keep it looking healthy because she was unable to do so. And now while I am a missionary I give service often throughout the week. I give blood when I can. It is a really great feeling being able to give service and not ask for anything in return.
