Hi I'm Seth

I grew up in Utah. I have 8 siblings. I love the outdoors and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up loving the outdoors! Any sport, any activity as long as it was outside, I'd enjoy playing it!! Hiking, rappeling and rock climbing are some of my favorite things to do on the weekend!! What makes it greater, is that my family shares the same passion for the outdoors that I have! I have a big familiy with 5 brothers and 3 sisters which added greatly to my childhood fun and even more to all the fun I'm having now!! My parents raised me in the gospel and I have developed a great appreciation for the unity, love and peace that it has brought to my family, not that we we're perfect but that we were much better than anything I could imagine without it! Because of that, and the love and testimony I developed for Jesus Christ, our Savior, I decided to serve a two year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints! I served in Los Angeles, spreading the gospel to all those that would listen! It was by far the greatest experience I've ever had!!

Why I am a Mormon

Being raised in this church, I struggled with the fact that it was all I've ever known. I had questions that come to most teens, wondering if what I believed was really true! There are so many beliefs out there, And knowing that God is not a creator of confusion, I wanted to know which church was HIS church! As time went on, I became more skeptical of my "inherited beliefs" until one day I hit the fork in the road & I had to make a decision on what I was to do! I heard many times that prayer & scripture study was the answer so I decided to put it to the test. One day, while out camping, I went off to study the scriptures on my own. I reviewed a promise found in the Book of Mormon, saying when you receive these things.. "ask God.. in the name of Christ if [they] are true; & if ye will ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, He will manifest the truth of it unto you.. & by the power of the Holy Ghost YOU MAY KNOW THE TRUTH OF ALL THINGS!" Well, I was sincere & intended to follow whichever answer I was given, & most of all, I had perfect faith in the fact that if God really was there, then He was required to live up to His word & answer my prayer! As I knelt down, I plead with Him for my answer and before I finished I had it! I felt the Spirit, which is hard to explain exactly how it feels, but when you feel it, you know! It feels good, peaceful, and right! I felt it! I know it's true! I know that all who ask WILL receive and that's why I'm a Mormon!

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by simply doing all that is in my power to go about doing good. I try to be someone that others can turn to for help and comfort and I try to set an example by keeping my standards high. I do my best to serve whenever an opportunity presents itself and I try to do daily things, like scripture study and prayer, that will bring me closer to God and my family! Most of all I do my best to overcome my many weakness' so that I can be more like Jesus Christ.
