Hi I'm Connor.

I grew up in Rigby, Idaho, home of the television. I'm a runner, a skier, and a writer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love the outdoors-- skiing, backpacking, and boating especially-- and I'm pretty much OCD about running. I ran track and cross country in high school. For the last year and a half I've been serving a mission in Tucson, Arizona. It's been pretty much the best experience of my life so far. When I get back, I plan to get into ultramarathons and go to school at BYU. So, yeah. Hmm. I'm really not sure what else to write here. I enjoy eating fettuccine alfredo and long walks on the beach? This is kind of like that awkward "About Me" slot on your Facebook profile that you don't know how to fill and end just filling up with Hot Rod quotes or something. I'm just gonna call it good and move on.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I Mormon? Because I know it's true. Because I love it. Because it makes sense, because I've had a spiritual confirmation of it, and because I'm my happiest when I'm living the gospel that I know to be true. What more could I ask?

How I live my faith

I've heard a quote that says, "Preach the gospel every day of your life and if necessary use words." I do my best to live the commandments as given by Jesus Christ, and when I fall short I remember His sacrifice, repent, and try harder.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

The missionaries' job, first and foremost, is to teach and testify of Jesus Christ. They'll start by sharing the news that Christ has called a prophet on the earth again, like the prophets in the Bible, and that through this prophet Christ has restored His church and everything that comes with it. They'll talk about how you can come closer to Christ and your Heavenly Father, how you can find deeper purpose in life, and how you can know that all this is true without having to take someone else's word for it.
