Hi I'm Zach Miller

I was born in Utah and moved to Alabama when I was 7. I have a pretty big family, I love everyone, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a pretty laid back guy, and I love being outdoors and doing all sorts of things. I try to always stay active. I enjoy hard work and love to achieve my goals. I worked with the Boy Scouts of America for a while and received the Eagle Scout Award! I love meeting new people and making new friends. Some of my hobbies include mechanic work, working out, hanging out with friends, camping, and just about anything that I can find some kind of enjoyment from. I am currently serving a mission in the Pocatello Idaho Mission as a full time missionary for 2 years!

Why I am a Mormon

Throughout my life I've always wondered about the things I'd learned as a kid growing up in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I wondered why I did the things I did. But as I grew up I realized the importance of those things. I love the gospel of Jesus Christ! It brings so many blessings and so much joy to me and my family as well as every other member I know. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is Jesus Christ's church once again on the earth. I'm so grateful to have the fullness of the gospel in my life. As I grew up I had to find out for myself if the things I had been taught all my life were true or not. So I followed Moroni's promise and counsel to read The Book of Mormon, ponder in my heart the things it contains, and to pray about the things I read desiring to know of their truthfulness. One day as I was about to read I decided to pray beforehand and I asked to receive a witness of whether or not The Book of Mormon was true. So after I finished praying I opened my scriptures and the first passage I read was Mosiah 1:6 "Oh my sons, I would that ye should remember that these sayings are true, and also these records are true. And behold also the plates of Nephi which contain the records and sayings of our fathers from the time they left Jerusalem until now, and they are true; and we can know of their surety because we have them before our eyes." As I read this scripture I knew my prayer had been answered! Out of all 2000 and something pages and I turned to that one page. Ever since that day I have known without a shadow of a doubt that The Book of Mormon is true, which also means that Joseph Smith was a true prophet because he translated The Book of Mormon by the power of God, and that everything else taught in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true. This is my testimony, which has been given to me by our loving Heavenly Father who loves each one of us personally, in the name of my Savior and Redeemer Jesus Christ. Amen

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to live like Jesus each and every day I'm alive. I know that we are all imperfect and will never be perfect in this life, but by following Jesus Christ's example and living His teachings we can draw closer to Him. Before I came out on my mission I taught the younger children about the scriptures and about Jesus Christ. It is so wonderful to see kids show that desire to know and be more like Him. Another way I try to live my faith is by having that Christ-like love for everyone. As I strive to achieve that charity, or pure love of Christ, I find myself caring more about others and less about myself. I love to serve others. I get so much joy out of seeing others happy!

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Zach Miller
Not at all!! We love to serve others! We as missionaries of the Church are called upon to help those who aren't Mormon. We are taught in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints to have charity or at least to strive for it. Charity is the pure love of Christ, or in other words a love for everyone no matter what their religious background. I personally love to see others happy and that comes from selfless service.
