About Me

My passion in life is music. I love music that's my life i love playing it, listening to it, and going to concerts. My musical instrument of choice is DRUMS I am a drummer and I have been in bands and done concerts. Its brought me great joy in my life. Also having ADHD it helps a lot to be able to channel my energy into a positive outlet. I'd like to consider my self a loving person. I have a god given gift to love people i love helping people, i love making people smile, i love to make peoples day i just love PEOPLE. I am 2nd to the youngest of 6 children all together. My parents are both active in the church and so are most of my siblings. My parents we're sealed in the Los Angeles Temple. I'm so grateful for their decision because I will be they're son and they will be my parents for Eternity. I love my family so much they're my most greatest possession in this world. I am nothing with out my family and the people I love. I am currently serving a two year mission in the Lansing Michigan Mission. I am so blessed to be able to share this wonderful message of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ and hope to bring the happiness its brought to me to other people. Like i said I LOVE PEOPLE.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints for all my life. Only recently before departing on my mission did i really get a grasp on how important the gospel has been in my life. In high school I was the only "Mormon" in my group of friends. It was very hard to live the life style I lived when everyone else didn't. I was looked at as different living in California people always had their opinions about "Mormons" it was not easy at times being a member of this church. I admit it there we're times when i questioned it but the feelings I get when I go to the temple. The feeling I get when I exercise the priesthood authority to act in God's name. The feeling i get when I attend sacrament meeting. The feeling I got when I was obedient to Heavenly Fathers commandments. That feeling and that feeling alone something I can not deny nor will i ever deny that feeling is what kept me on the straight and narrow that feeling is what kept me going its because that feeling why i am serving a two year mission and leaving my family and my life behind. Its because its that feeling why the gospel is so important to me. The way it makes me feel and how much happiness is why i want to shout and tell every ear this good message. This gospel is true it brings happiness. Its because of this knowledge i have gained through personal prayer that heavenly father has revealed to me that its true that is why i am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

As a messenger of the restored gospel. I help people understand that Heavenly Father loves all his children. He loves them so much and continues to communicate with them through modern day prophets. The book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ BOTH the book of Mormon and The Bible testify about Jesus Christ. They are both word of God. That through the restored gospel that families can be together for ever. That trough the atonement of Jesus Christ we can be cleansed from our sins. That we can shed the skin of our mistakes, burdens, guilt, and pain and be made a new. I live my faith by the example Jesus Christ follow his footsteps. I try every to be like my savior everyday.
