Hi I'm Connor Smith

I have lived in Idaho my whole life, I'm a golfer, a car lover, a future missionary and I am a mormon.

About Me

Well where to start... I am your average 19 year old kid. I love to spend time with my friends and make new friends whenever I get the chance. I love being outdoors, meaning any sports like golf, football, hiking, biking, camping or anything that keeps you physically involved or fit. Another huge part of my life is weightlifting! I may not be the biggest guy at the gym or even the most determined guy, but when I started lifting up at college I was hooked! I'm also really into cars whether that be detailing cars, fixing cars, restoring cars you name it! If it has a motor and rides I'll be there. The most current thing happening in my life is I'm actually headed out on a mission to Mexico, Mexico City. I'm super grateful to get the chance to serve and the chance to go learn a new culture and meet these great people! Well... I can't think of anything else but I'm sure i'll add later! Thanks :)

Why I am a Mormon

Hmmm this is a difficult question and not easy to answer. I am a mormon because I know that this church is true. It has never lead me in a wrong direction and it always gives me answers to the bigger questions in life that I need answering. I know that the doctrines that this church teaches are true and eternal truths. I am so glad that I get to be with my family forever. I cannot imagine a heaven without them and I wouldn't be the person I am today without them. I know that we can be given forgiveness through Christ and learn and become better through our mistakes. I know that he has given us the atonement and a plan for us to follow so that we can all return to be with him someday. There is no better feeling then knowing that there is a purpose for us being on this earth and that he will give me and you direction in this crazy world. I also know that he has given us prophets to guide us in these days so that we can receive his modern word "advice" for us so that we can navigate even better through the trials that are thrown at us daily. There is so much more for me to learn but I know as I serve a mission for christ and for this church I can bring others unto him and I can further my growth in and through him.

How I live my faith

Well I was born into the mormon faith and it has been a life changing religion to grow up in! It truly has molded me into the person that I am today and if I had the chance to go back.... I wouldn't! I wouldn't change being in this church for my life because it is my life!
