Hi I'm Abraham

I'm Abraham Krizin from Orem, UT and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 22 years old, and I have always loved being around people. I try to do everything, like go to plays, sporting events, choir concerts, and of course dances! I love being in the outdoors and I also love to try and play any sport. I plan on starting college after my mission and working. I love meeting people, just ask my friends. They always ask “How do you know so many people?” I just reply... “By saying hello!” I'm an Eagle Scout and very thankful for my Mom and Dad, and all the other support to receive that award in scouting. I love to clean! Yep, I said clean. I have fun doing work and when I’m done I love see the work that I have accomplished.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a member of this church because it is Christ church restored to the earth. My love for our Savior and Heavenly Father grows more and more every day knowing that I am in the same Church that Christ set up when He was on the earth. That to me is a blessing beyond so many things. I know that this is Christ's church because I have asked our Heavenly Father if it is. He gave me an answer, just as The Bible and The Book of Mormon teaches us that the Holy Ghost will answer us if we would ask in faith to know that this is Jesus Christ's church. I also know this church is true because of reading from the Book of Mormon and asking if the Book is true. The Book of Mormon is the proof that God is the same yesterday, today and forever! He will always answer your prayer. We just have to know that by our faith God will answer our questions. I also know that this is His Church because everything He taught is the same as it was when He originally set up the church. By living every day, and seeing how this Gospel has blessed so many of my brothers and sisters is another Testimony that this church is organized on the teachings of Jesus Christ. I also love how this whole Church is set up and runs on service. It's because we all follow the same example that Christ taught to love and serve others. This is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I have a big desire to do what’s right and serve others. I have always looked for ways to help others out in everything I do in life even if it's a hello, opening the door, smiling, or helping someone with their groceries. I know this a great way to show my faith because I feel such love from making someone else smile. It helps them feel the love of Jesus Christ when I following His example to serve one another. I love reading from the scriptures because that is the best way to learn more about Jesus Christ teachings, to know what is right or wrong, to grow closer to my Savior and to feel the Spirit testify of the truth. I love how so many times when I have a question and turn to the scriptures I will get an answer. Now as I study and ponder the scriptures, I always pray before and after to listen to the Holy Ghost to allow Heavenly Father to teach me about the many wonderful things in them. As I do these things I learn. As I go about in my daily life I truly know that Heavenly Father has His hand in everything.
