Hi I'm Noah

I'm a friend, a student, a musician, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a young adult. I'm currently serving a full time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints and find being productive rather enjoyable. Upon my return I intend to Enroll at my Local College and begin taking classes towards a degree with engineering. In my spare time I find myself hanging out with my friends, I enjoy playing various trading card games, along with role playing games, put simply I'm a bit of a geek. I've also been quite involved in music most of my life, I've always sung and I also play a few various musical insturments which include the tuba, baritone, and trombone. I can't claim to be much of an athlete, but I also relish physical challenges and other obstacles I must overcome. So in a nutshell, I'm a young man with many diverse interests who loves when life throws him a curveball.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised Mormon. That reason alone is not why I am a Mormon though. Being born and raised Mormon, I took for granted what a great blessing it was to have the gospel in my life. Until I was about 15, I lived my life in a lazy and selfish way. I got into trouble from time to time, and I wasn't always doing what I was supposed to do. Being raised in the church I had never had a great conversion like some converts seemed to have, and I was always hoping for sometime like a burning bush to tell me that the gospel was real. That however is not how things happened. I was in a church meeting one day and another member, who was born and raised in the church, was sharing their conversion story. They told about how they had desired a great sign from the lord like I did, and how they prayed everyday for that sign. They would study the Book of Mormon and Bible often, and would ponder the words in them often. They then told of how one day, during their lunch break, they were kneeling in prayer in their office, asking god to know if the gospel was true, and if the Book of Mormon was true, when a small voice came into their head and said to them. "You big dummy, you've always know it to be true." Those words that he spoke rang so true to me, and they are still true today. I haven't had a huge sign from the lord, but the promptings of the spirit have told me that it is true. The spirit has confirmed in me the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon, and it has told that the Joseph Smith was a prophet, and through him the Priesthood was restored the the earth, and the Book of Mormon was brought forth in this latter day.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by regularly attending church meetings and activities. I've spent two years on a youth planning committee that organized and ran activities for the youth. I also live my faith by being a friend to all those around me who are both members and non-members and doing my best to offer service to everyone in need.
