Hi I'm Guy

I graduated High School with my Associates Degree. I am an Eagle Scout. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am the youngest child of 7 children. I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I play Violin and Piano, and I love to sing and dance. Music is basically my life. I've worked with Special Needs kids and love to do so. It has helped me to grow as a person and realize how much I can help out in the world. Other than music, I enjoy going swimming, and altogether just spending time in the water. If I am at the beach, I am in the water the whole time. Another thing I enjoy doing is going camping, either with or without a tent. Sleeping under the stars is always an amazing experience, especially when with friends and in a hammock. When I am with friends, we end up playing games (real games, not video games), watching movies or TV shows, and just having a great time. At this time I am preparing to serve a mission in Guatemala, where I will spend two years of my life! I am so excited for the opportunity to go there and serve.

Why I am a Mormon

As I was born into a family that is already Mormon, I don't have a significant conversion story. But it is a story none the less. When I was younger, I heard everyone in my family talk about church and about what they learned. When I started growing up and understanding more, I realized how much I had learned about the Gospel. Somewhere along the way I questioned myself as to why I was a member of this church. The answer came, quiet and simple, because I know that it is true. Everything about this church is true! The way I found out was the way the missionaries teach us to do it: First, read through the scriptures. Then, pray and ask our Heavenly Father if they are true. I did that with the scriptures, church, and everything about church. And I received that simple yet powerful answer every time: It is true. I know with inmovable surety that this Church is the true church on the Earth today and I know that if anyone were to just try and go to church or read the scriptures and pray about them, they would get the same answer.

How I live my faith

In my ward, I am called as a ward missionary. As such, I go with the missionaries to peoples houses that want to learn about the Gospel. Sometimes I even help out with the lesson. I also go out with just one missionary while someone else goes with the other (splits). This has given me the opportunity to see what its like to be a missionary before I go out on my own mission. I also participate in my ward choir. We prepare songs to sing during church every once in a while. With how much I love singing and how good I am at it (or so I'm told), it is always a pleasure to sing in a choir.
