Hi I'm Easton

I grew up in Utah. Now I am living in Texas. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently living in Texas right now. I come from an awesome family of 7. I grew up in Utah for most of my life. I love camping and being outdoors. Anything to do with animals I absolutely love. I would have to say that music is probably one of my favorite things there is in life other than my family, church and friends. I plan on going to school in Geology when i get back from Texas. I am Currently serving a mission in the Texas Houston South Mission THSM. I love it and it is the best choice I have ever made. It has really helped me learn how to love people and help them when they need it.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in this faith with a family that tried so hard to help all of my brothers and sister get on the right path. As a child I was very rebelious to the idea of church and I can still remember days when before church would start I would hide my church shoes so that I did not have to go. My parents still always were able to find them and help me get there. When I became a teenager though, my rebellion grew between me and my parents, despite the fact that I always knew that the things that they were teaching me and what the church was teaching me were true. It came to the point in time where my parents finally let me make my own choices, and after seeing 7 years of "my way" I finally found out how miserable I really was not fully living the gospel as I should. The circumstances that I was in finally compelled me one day to get on knees and pray to my Father In Heaven. It was short, Simple, and Honest, but it began a domino effect that would completely change me into a the new person that I needed to be for so many years. I was prompted somehow to read The Book Of Mormon and I gained a testimony over a few short months of reading it almost every day. That book has given me so much direction as to were I am going in this life and were I am heading after.

How I live my faith

Now how I live my Faith is by serving my mission in the Texas Houston South Mission. It is awesome because everyday I get to go out and share what I have come to know what is true with others and help them makes changes that will bless them forever. I also get to serve them in many ways, like moving or when their car breaks down in the middle of the road. It is the best feeling when i finally help them and I see how happy and grateful these people are of our service.

Why was a Restoration of the Gospel needed? Haven’t we always had the Bible?

I believe the restoration was needed because over time we as people have become confused on the "truth" and what it really is. With having the church restored by joseph smith we have been able to understand what the real truth is. The book of mormon teaches the same principles as the bible, but it testifies that Joseph Smith is really teaching the truth. I know it is true because I have prayed about it to my heavenly father.
