Hi I'm Spencer Neal Young

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in Gilbert Arizona. I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

About Me

I currently attend BYU. I have a large family, I am one of 6 boys. I also have one little sister. My family is my most prized possesion. I think that the most important thing about me is that i believe happiness can be found in only one way. Every one on this earth wants to be happy, everyone yearns to feel good about themselves and find joy in their life. I have found that obedience to the commandments of God is the only way to find happiness and satisfaction in life. It really works.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family with two parents who are faithful members of the church. I grew up learning about Jesus Christ and what Heavenly Father expects of me. I always had a sense of right and wrong but never had dedicated myself to the gospel nor had I ever had a real desire to give all my life for the gospel. Shortly after I graduated high school all of my friends became involved in drugs and I had to choose if I would participate or if I would live what I knew to be correct. I chose not to participate with my friends and this in turn caused me to lose all my friends. I spent many days alone and thinking about my life. For the first time I decided to read the Book of Mormon because i wanted to and because i needed help from my Heavenly Father. I remember praying for many days and reading for many hours. I dont know at what exact moment I receive my answer but I came to know that the Book of Mormon is true and that man can have joy if he will but obey God. I have had my trials since then and I will have trials in the future but I know that all will be okay and that I will be able to have happiness if I obey the commandments of God.

How I live my faith

I think living faith is in the day to day. I live my faith by being kind and loving others that are different than me. The more I learn about Christ the kinder I learn to treat others and in turn I want them to come to know Christ. In the end Faith is live by doing what God our Father expects from us. Keep his commandments and love one another.
