Hi I'm Spencer

I love skiing. I'm a college student. I'm studying Civil Engineering. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a 23 year old college student studying Civil Engineering and probably the biggest college football fan around. I'm single, I come from a large family and love it! I love art and architecture, international soccer, I've played rugby, I've lived in South America and Europe, I play the ukulele, guitar and piano, and I love the Beatles. School is hard, but I'm doing my best to enjoy it.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love my Savior Jesus Christ. I was born into the church. My parents come from families with strong roots in the church. I have been taught the teachings of Jesus Christ and have gained a personal testimony that this is the Lord's church. It is not simply a large part of my life; it is my life. It gives me happiness, joy, and comfort. I know that if I have faith in this life, I will be able to be with my family forever. His church and His gospel is the greatest thing I know.

How I live my faith

I am involved in the leadership of the men's organization in my ward. I teach lessons, visit individuals, and give any assistance as needed. I am also assigned to visit certain members, to share spiritual messages, and to love and serve them in any way that I can. These are specific callings I have been given, but truly my one and greatest calling is to follow the Savior. To live as He did, to love my neighbor as He did, and to love Him with all that I have is what it comes down to. I love the chances that I have to serve and love my fellow men.

What are some of the ways that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints helps those around the world?

I had the opportunity to see first hand how the Gospel has changed lives in every way. I served for the church in South America and saw that the teachings of the gospel helped countless individuals in financial crises, relationship problems, health issues, quality of life, personal happiness, political and social issues, and every imaginable aspect in life. I saw people with addictions overcome them and change their lives. I saw the jobless gain work through help of the Lord and help of the church. I saw marriages improved and even saved. I witnessed the sick and inflicted cured through faith. And so, to answer what the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints does to help those around the world, I would testify that it blesses lives in every aspect. Show more Show less
