Hi I'm Casey

I love to surf, have fun, laugh, be with friends and family and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I guess one thing that I love to do the most, is have fun. The motto that I live by is that if your not having fun then your not doing something right. Life is supposed to be fun and exciting! Another thing that I love to do is to surf. It is one of those things that is hard to describe, but when you are riding that wave there really is no better feeling. There is nothing better then being out in God's creation playing all day! I grew up playing sports and I still love to play all sorts of sports, basketball, baseball, soccer, etc. I just love to be doing things and staying busy. I want to travel the world one day. I have the best family in the world! I am currently serving a mission in the California San Diego Mission. It is such an awesome experience and I am loving every minute of it! I plan on attending college at BYU-Hawaii when I get home, but have no idea what I want to major in!

Why I am a Mormon

I would have to say that the reason why I am a Mormon is for the pure awesomeness that it brings! You have a ward family wherever you go, you have great leaders growing up, you make great friends that have the same standards as you, and most of all, we have the Atonement of Jesus Christ. It is so neat to have direction in my life, to know that if I have a question or concern I have many people who are willing to help and council me, and I also have my Father in Heaven. No matter what I do or who I am, he is ALWAYS there for me and willing to help me out with anything I need, as long as I ask. His Atonement is never too far out of reach for those who truly seek it. The Church will always be a firm foundation that I know I can rely on. When we heed the council of the Prophet and follow the teachings in the scriptures, I know that I will be truly happy. Doesn't mean hardships or trials won't come my way, it just means that I will be more ready to face them when they do.

How I live my faith

I think how I live my faith is to try and be the best person I can be, and especially being an example. You may not think so but an example is everything. People are looking up to you whether you notice them or not. When we are good examples, it reflects well on the Church and helps people see the joy and happiness that the Gospel brings to our lives when we live the standards and do what we are supposed to. As we strive to be good examples, we try to live the way that Christ did and that brings us closer to him. As a missionary we need to be the best example that we can because we represent our Savior Jesus Christ.
