Hi I'm Spencer Toone
I love hiking, sports, reading my scriptures. I am on a mission in Hawaii, and I'm a Mormon.
I was born and raised in Utah, my parents brought me up in the LDS faith but it wasn't until a few years ago that I had my own personal witness of the truthfulness of this gospel. I love the blessing it is to be alive and know about the Lords Plan of Salvation, and that I have a role in that plan no matter how small it may be. I have 7 younger siblings, the 5 youngest of which are adopted. My hobbies are hiking, sports, writing, hanging out with my friends, and playing with my younger siblings. After I graduated from High School I took a semester of college at SLCC, and then headed out on my mission. I have been serving for about a year now and have been to Maui, and all over Oahu.
Why I am a Mormon
I have been involved with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints all my life, but for most of that time I didn't know for myself that this was Christs true church. Before my mission I went through a rough time and had to repent of past transgressions. Afterwards I felt indescribable joy as the spirit testified that I had been made clean through Christs atoning sacrifice. That is one of the reasons I decided to go on my mission, to share that testimony I had gained and the joy it brought to my life. Since then I have had several confirmations of the truthfulness of this gospel. I have seen peoples hearts changed as the Holy Ghost testified to them of the truthfulness of the gospel, and as they entered into the covenant of baptism.
How I live my faith
By trying evey day to live my life the way Heavenly Father would want me to, by serving a mission and bringing the gospel into the lives of all I meet, and by seeking to make my desires, thoughts, and actions like the Saviors. Thats how I live my faith.
