Hi I'm Chris

I love my family, I love the outdoors, I'm an animator, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy animation, computer science, singing, the outdoors, sports, and spending time with my family. I enjoy learning about the world and how it works. I am a sophomore studying animation at BYU. I hope to help children and families learn good morals and be happy through my art. I come from a family of six and I love them all. I have had the opportunity of attending college and taking classes with two of my siblings. I love spending time with them. I love my parents. They always support me in the things that I want to do, and they are always a listening ear. My family, the gospel of Jesus Christ, and art are three of my favorite things.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that God is my Father in Heaven and I know that Christ is my Savior. I know that the atonement is real and is the only way to feel true peace and happiness. I know, because I have experienced it for my self, that through Christ's atonement our weaknesses can become strengths. I know that because I have received the gift of the Holy Ghost I always have a compass, a guide and a comforter. Personal revelation is such a wonderful thing, and has blessed my life so much. The Holy Ghost confirms truths and it has confirmed to me that the Church of Jesus Christ of Later-day Saint's is Christ's church on the earth today, that it is lead by prophets, and that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. Sometimes I imagine what my life would be like without the gospel, and every time I do, I realize that without it, I would be alone, sad, and lost, and it is because of the progression, the happiness, the peace, the blessings, and the miracles I have experienced in my life because of the gospel that I know that is true. Simply put I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Later-day Saints is Christ's church because the Holy Ghost has made it known unto me.

How I live my faith

I am trying hard to follow the example of Jesus Christ. If I can live a life even a little bit like our perfect example, Jesus Christ, then I will be able to help those around me and I will be happier. I try to not just love as Christ loved, but to express my love like like He would. I believe that one of the best ways I can live my faith is by using my gifts and talents to help other people come closer to Christ and learn his word. As an artist I am always trying to convey some sort of message through my work. I strive to show the beauty and greatness of God's creations, and teach good morals through my work. I try to use what blessings I have been given to help people be happy.
