Hi I'm Spencer

I Grew up In St. Louis. I'm a huge Cardinals fan and I love baseball. I love Music and being Crazy. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Des Moines, Iowa and grew up in St. Louis, Missouri. I love St. Louis so much! Not just the baseball but the people and diversity. I currently just graduated from high school in May 2011 and am now serving a Full-Time Mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I am serving in the Adriatic South Mission speaking Albanian. After my mission I plan on attending Utah Valley University where I hope to play baseball and Major in Criminal Justice. I love baseball, wrestling, football, biking, fishing and pretty much anything that has to do with sports or just being out side. I like hanging out with friends and just being my own crazy self. Most of all is I love being with my family. They are the biggest reason I am so happy in life. I love them so much and know that I can live with them for Eternity.

Why I am a Mormon

Why I'm a Mormon? Well I have been raised up in the Church. I have not known anything different. Just because I was raised up as a Mormon doesn't mean I have always had a testimony. My parents are very strong in the church. I really didn't have a testimony of the gospel. I just went to church and did what I thought was right. A couple of years ago I got on my knees and asked the Lord if this church was true. I recieved a firm confirmation that this is the true church of Christ. I started reading The Book of Mormon everyday and praying hard to know the truths. I found out my self that this church is true. I have my own strong testimony of the truthfulness and that is why I am serving the Lord for two years, so I can bring happiness to those who don't have these great blessings. This gospel has brought me so much happiness and blessings and I want to be able to share it with people. I know this church is true. I know that The Book of Mormon is the word of God and another testament of Jesus Christ. I also know the Bible to be the word of God as long as it is translated correctly. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of the Lord and did restore The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. No one can tell me otherwise. I know the Lord does answer prayers as long as we do our part. I am so greatful for my family, that they never gave up on me. They are amazing and I love them so much. I have never been so happy.

How I live my faith

I live my Faith by living it to the fullest. Right now in my life, serving a Two year mission in the Adriatic South Mission. I am so greatful for this amazing calling and the chance I am able to serve the people in Albania and bring them the happiness that I have. Everyone deserves this happiness. It's amazing and can really help you out for anything! I love reading the Book of Mormon and the Bible. There are so many great things in these books. I have learned so much from them and know that by reading them I can receive answers to my questions. I know through prayer we can recieve answers for anything. As we do our part the Lord will do his. I know this to be true.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

The only way to know if this church is true is really doing your part. You can't just expect Heavenly Father to tell you it is true. You have to work hard and it takes time. In my life it really took me a while to know this church is true. I read the Book of Mormon and prayed all the time to know if it was true. It took a while but the Lord does answer when it is best for us. Now I am a Missionary and teaching people about this great gospel and how it can help them in their lives. I know this church is true without a doubt and that is because I asked my Father in Heaven and I received and answer. The Church of Jesus Christ has made my life so happy. Show more Show less
