Hi I'm Spencer

I grew up in Washington, Nevada, and California. I attended the University of Washington for a year. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Washington, Nevada, and California where I now call home. I love the sun, beach, playing volleyball, making jokes, and living life to the fullest. I spent a year at the University of Washington studying Aeronautical Engineering before entering the MTC to serve a 2 year religious mission to Budapest, Hungary. Im a pretty chill guy.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love my Savior, Jesus Christ. I was raised in the church but there came a point in my life where I realized I didnt really know or believe in it. I decided to read the Book of Mormon and find out for myself what was true. After a couple weeks of nightly reading and praying, I finally received an answer: that this church is true, that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ, and that Joseph Smith restored Christ's church in these latter days. I know Christ lives. I have felt the cleansing power of His atonement in my life. With every fiber of my being I testify of the truthfulness of this gospel. The very thought of people living their lives without this knowledge, scares me. I know that the only path towards exaltation and eternal happiness with those we love lies with Jesus Christ. He is our exemplar, our Redeemer, and our advocate with the Father.

How I live my faith

For the next two years I have dedicated and consecrated my life to serve Jesus Christ. I have been called by a modern day prophet to declare to the people of Hungary my testimony that Christ lives. Every day is a blessing, and every day I seek for opportunities to serve my fellow man, help those that stand in need of comfort, and lift up those around me. As a missionary I have a solemn responsibility to leave behind the things of the world and give my all to this work. There is no where I would rather be, no thing I would rather be doing. Inviting others to come unto Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel has blessed my life immensly and has blessed the lives of those around me.

Why is it important for us to take care of our bodies? Why are our bodies called temples of God in the Bible?

Our bodies are a sacred gift from our Father in Heaven. We have been given mortality to prepare ourselves to live the laws of heaven. This body, this "tabernacle of clay" has been bought with a price. Through His atonement, Jesus Christ satisfied the demands of justice and made it possible for our bodies to become glorified. We have a responsibility to follow His council and learn to treat our bodies with respect as He instructs. Show more Show less
