Hi I'm Trenton Southard

I'm a dancer, I'm a singer, I'm a Coloradan, I'm a teacher in my priesthood, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to bike around my neighborhood and visit with others. I spend my weekends singing and dancing with seniors with the Arizona Swing Kids or at Stake dances. I'm a freshmen here in AZ and love school. It gets me away from home and even though there are tempations and tribulatoins there, I work through it with the help of our heavenly father everyday. I do community service often. I can sing, cook, bike, dance, act, and about a thousand other things. :P Hanging out with my friends is close to the top of my priorities so, as you can tell, I'm a busy man!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I was born into it. I didn't leave the church because I have seen miracles happen and heard stories of prayers being answered. I attended another church one week and upon entering the parking lot, I felt the spirit leave me and Satin take over, I felt horrible but i pushed through it. My friends don't agree with the faith but they respect my belifs which makes me belive that the Lord is looking after me and keeping me safe. The stories we learn in Seminary 5 days a week at 5:30 come close to what we learn in school so I know that it happened, the school just keeps the real religion parts out. I'm a Mormon on my choice, not my parents or my friends or my awesome leaders, I'm a Mormon because my savior died to save me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church every Sunday and going to Mutual on Wednesdays. I participate in almost all the events we do and help with cleaning of the church when it's our wards turn. I read my scriptures daily but need to work on my personal prayers. I've read the Book of Mormon twice and I'm working on a 3rd round of it. Each time I learn something new and understand it better. I refrain from following the standards of the world and follow my standards and the churchs standards.

In whom should we have faith?

Trenton Southard
We should always have faith in our Heavenly Father and the blessings he has for us. Faith in god. Show more Show less
