Hi I'm Zeke Z Zeller

I grew up in Idaho. I'm a missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Zeke. I have 3 younger brothers. I grew up in Idaho and have lived there my whole life. I love to play the piano. I started when I was 5 or 6 years old. I have played for seminary, sacrament meeting, priesthood meeting, and other various recitals and Church gatherings. I love the hymns. They are so beautiful. I love to exercise. I was a runner in high school. I ran Track and Cross Country. I placed 6th in the 110m High Hurdles at state track my senior year in high school. I graduated in 2011. I went to Brigham Young University - Idaho for a full year. I studied Exercise Physiology. I love the body and how it works. I am working towards becoming a Physical Therapist.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? I am a Mormon because I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet, who was called of God to restore His church back on the Earth. This is it. This is that church, that gospel that Christ set up. It is exactly the same as it has been previously. I know that because I have read the Book of Mormon. I have prayed to our Heavenly Father and He has answered me. This church, this gospel was His answer. I was born into the church but each and every one of us has to be converted in some way. Mine came through reading the Book of Mormon and by striving to know what I have been told my whole life. I wanted to know if this really was the only true church. I read and prayed and found out for myself that it is. I am a Mormon because if I wasn't I wouldn't be happy. I would not be the person I want to be. I would be lost in a world that is very easy to get lost in. Being part of this great church has given me direction when I needed it the most. I love being part of it! I'm a Mormon and proud of it!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being an example. My daily question is, "If Jesus Christ was here, is this how He would do this?" If the answer is yes, then it's good. If the answer is no, then something needs to change. I have 3 younger brothers. They look up to me. If I don't live the way that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ would have me live then my brothers will think that that behavior is acceptable when it really might not be. I live my faith by sharing it with others. This gospel makes me so happy. It fills my heart with peace, joy, and comfort. I know that just by being a part of this gospel that I don't have to go through hard times alone. I live my faith by carrying the Spirit with me wherever I go. I want people to feel what I feel. That is everlasting joy because of the gospel which I am a part of. I live my faith by using music to uplift others. I have played hymns for almost 15 years. I love them and they bring a special feeling into my life and the lives of everyone who listens. I live my faith by striving to be like our Savior. That is how I know that my life will be one of great worth. I want people to think of Christ when they think of me.
