Hi I'm Trenton Peterson

I Grew up on a farm, i'm the youngest of four boys, i'm a golfer, i love ping pong, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I grew up in a small town in Utah with three older brother. After living on a farm around my whole family for sixteen years my parents and I moved down to Saint George Utah. There I finished my last two years of high school and after that I turn in my mission papers and I was called to Washington Spokane mission where I am currently serving. I love to play golf, baseball, and ping pong. Music is something that i love! I don't sing and the only instrument i know how to play is the radio so im not that good at making music but i love to listen to people who do! I have always wanted to go on road trips with a motorcycle and hopefully i can afford that after my mission, but if not i will always have my family to hang out with. I love my family they are great!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and when i was young i didn't like to go to church or go to young mens most of the time because i would rather be lazy. when ever someone would ask me if i was going to serve a mission i would say yes. not because i wanted to or because i knew i would i just said yes because it was easier then saying no, and hearing everyone ask me why i didn't want to go. As i got older i really gave going on a mission some thought and i knew it was something that would bless my life so i started to read the Book of Mormon with real intent for the first time in my life. I was nineteen and grew up in the church and never knew what i was missing out on my whole life after reading the Book of Mormon for the right reasons i saw why everyone says its so important! After i found that out i wanted to serve a mission because i wanted to. I didnt want to just go on a mission to teach people about the gospel but to learn more about it for myself as well. I was a Mormon because i was raised into it and now im a Mormon because i know for a fact that it is the only true church on the earth. It can bless each and everyones life like it has mine and it will always continue to bless my life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving my mission for two years and doing everything I can to live by the teachings of Jesus Christ. Living by the teachings of Jesus has made it easier to feel the Holy Ghost in my life and become closer to God. If i didn't have this faith i don't know where would be today. living by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints standards has blessed my life in so many ways i would be lost with out them they are not there to control or to pry, but they are there to guide and protected us so we can return to live with are loving heavenly father again. I know thats something i want and im sure its something everyones wants and this faith makes it that much easier to reach that, and makes me that much happier.
