Hi I'm Justin Silva

I'm from Los Angeles, I'm a graffiti artist, a beatboxer, a Creative Writing major, a beach bum..and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I live in Los Angeles, California and I'm 22 years young. I'm a college student and my major is Creative Writing, I would love to be a screen play writer for films, or an author..really, any occupation that has to do with creative writing. I LOVE baseball! I'm a huge baseball fan, I could watch baseball for days and days and not get bored. I really enjoy doing legal graffiti art and just going to town with some spray cans and a wall! I pretty much live at the beach since I'm there so much, it's just so peaceful and relaxing, I'm most definitely a beach bum. I have a passion for music, I'm always coming up with new instrumentals, beats, and melodies. I'm a human beatboxer, so that makes it way easier for me to play around with different sounds and melodies to see if it sounds good or not, my mouth goes wherever I go, so..it's pretty convenient! I also have a huge passion for learning, I love learning new things it's a great feeling. There's so much to learn out there in this great world God has created! It's amazing!

Why I am a Mormon

I haven't always lived the standards and principles of Jesus Christ and of His church, so I can definitely testify that active membership in this church was literally the best decision I have ever made in my entire life. I'm a changed person for the better, I'm definitely not the same person I was before. Life is so beautiful and amazing now, everything just makes perfect sense. Of course there are still trials and things like that, but God would never allow us to have something that we can't handle, and with the help of our Savior we can overcome every single trial that our individual lives encounter, we just need to let Him in and ask for His help, He's waiting. That's why I'm Mormon, because life just wouldn't be as enjoyable for me if I wasn't Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by obeying all of the standards and principles that this religion has, which literally means that I'm obeying every single one of the things that our Savior Jesus Christ asks us all to do here on this life. By me living my faith, I'm literally the happiest I can possibly be, you'll be able to live the best life you can possibly live, through membership in this church and by living the standards and principles within this church, and when you live this way you'll automatically be living a life centered on Jesus Christ, you'll be living a Christ-like life and a life He'd want you to live. I'm also living my faith because I'm currently serving a two year mission for Jesus Christ and for His church, I'm a missionary in the Colorado Colorado Springs Mission, and I'm serving from March 2011- March 2013, and I love every single minute of it!!!
