Hi I'm Spencer Thompson

I'm a college student, lover of music and all things awesome, an Ultimate frisbee Ninja. And, I'm a Mormon

About Me

You could say that I love all the small and simple things in life from the way that they Sun sets over the Utah mountains to a small inside joke that people catch on to, and just the things that people don't really pay any attention to, I enjoy those things because it's those little things that make the day really worth it, and also define who we are. I guess you could say that I came from your average Mormon home, with three brothers, great parents and a very strange dog. I grew up in Utah and I served two year mission for the church in the Georgia Macon Mission, my goal in this is to help bring others close to Jesus Christ and feel His influence in my life as I have. Right now, I'm pursuing an MBA business degree, I feel like I would be more able to make differences in many other people's lives, My three brothers are my closest friends and I would do anything for them, even though when we pull out Smash Brothers it doesn't quite look that way, If they needed anything I would do it for them, and really anyone else that I care about, I'm not one to leave someone hanging. I'm not one to turn down a challenge whether that be doing something completely dangerous or just in general stupid, if there is a possibility of me being able to do it you can bet I will do it. I'm not one to quarrel, I think there are better ways of solving our problems than arguing and fighting over it. I'm pretty easy to get along with too. Well, I guess you could say that's me in a nut shell.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church yes, like may members of the church. But that wouldn't hold me through trials of my faith. I have always believed what my parents taught me, and what the other members of the church taught me. I never doubted it and I always believed it. But that's not why I'm a Mormon. I am a Mormon because I have taken the time to ask. About it and God took the time to answer me. And, when I was about 16 I started realizing that I made some pretty bad mistakes. Nothing to make my parents extremely worried about me, but I knew that I wasn't being who I was supposed to be, again, the little things. And those little things kept eating at me, and I thought I would never get over my trials. But then I was in a class, and someone taught me about what true repentance was, and I knew that that was what was missing in my life, they taught it by using a story from the Book of Mormon. I then took the time to Pray and I put all of my mistakes to the side and sincerely asked to be forgiven. And the weight of all of those things were taken off of me. And I felt the love of my Savior touch my heart and I felt clean and pure. And ever since then I have been wanting to share that love with everyone that I can.

How I live my faith

The best way to say this is that I'm definitely not just a weekend and Sunday only kind of person. I do everything I can to constantly be living the way I'm supposed to and be an example to others, now of course I'm not perfect, far from it. But I strive to what I can to follow Jesus Christ. And like I said earlier, I love the small things, I strive to do what I can, even the small things because that is what defines our character, anyone can say that they would move a mountain for the Lord, but not strive to do the small things Jesus asks us to do like being a friend to someone who needs it or just keeping our thoughts out of the gutter. I also lived my faith by serving a mission for the Lord in Macon. It's the most rewarding thing I was able to do. Now I try to be an example, answer any questions that people have about the church and help whoever I can make better choices and do the right things. Always being true not just on sundays
