Hi I'm Elder Byers

I grew up in Washington state in the seattle area, I love longboarding with friends and other activities like that. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Washington, I love just hanging out with friends wether it be skating, going to the gym, or just playing basketball or something. I grew up mainly living with my mom and visiting my dad on weekends after they split up and right now I am currently serving my mission in the Jacksonville Florida mission.

Why I am a Mormon

Growing up religion was never really apart of my life, my Dad went to primary as a kid but became inactive after awhile. My mom never really had any religious experiences so as a kid I didn't know hardly any1thing about any form of religion. When i was twelve though that all changed, my Dad was going through a very rough time in his life where he was struggling with bad habits and his life was falling apart in almost every aspect. That changed one day when the missionaries came to our house and began to teach him and through faith in Jesus Christ my father was able to give up evrything. My dad completly turned his life around, i can clearly remember as a 12 year old how much change he went through for the good. I saw how much the church had helped him, he was in such a dark place in his life and he had so much more happiness then ever before. During this time the missionaries taught and baptized me and my older brother. This church has helped me so much personally in my life, I now feel like I have a purpose in life and that happiness is something that I can truly have for myself and hopefully I can bring that same gift to others.

How I live my faith

I live my faith evryday by following the council of prophets of old and of new. I listen to confrences and what I can do in my life to strengthen my testimony in Christ. As I am serving my mission for these next two years i hope to bring others the same happiness that this gospel has brought me.
