Hi I'm Christian

I was born in California, but was raised in Oklahoma. I am preparing to serve a mission and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a young man who has about a week left before serving a mission. I have been preparing to serve by following the commandments. I love skateboarding with a passion it is my biggest hobby, music lets me feel free as well. I like to listen to all kind of music that inspires me in anyway. There was a time when I did not feel it to be necessary to serve a mission. I was never inactive but I felt it wasnt for me. The military at the time was my biggest concern. I really wanted to serve my country first. A group of missionaries started to visit me more often and I asked them if a mission was the right choice, or if they loved every bit of it. Each one of those missionaries shared their testimony with me and influenced me to serve which was a year ago. So from that day forward I decided that I will serve a mission and be a great example to my younger brother and my church.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that it is the true word of God and it has blessed me in so many ways. I couldnt be anymore happier with my family for giving me this wonderful blessing.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by first knowing this is the true word of God. I love to share with others my beliefs and tell them how happy I am to have an opportunity to learn each day about the gospel of Jesus Christ. I read my scriptures daily. Pray when I wake up before I eat and when I go to bed.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

I have never prayed to see if the church was true. I was 8 when my family and I heard about the church. I am 19 now and a year ago I have prayed for the very first time to ask if this was the true church of God, and if the Book of Mormon was true. I prayed at night and as I was asking I saw a flash in my eyes. I quickly opened my eyes and thought to myself that was just a coincidence. I thought it might have been a cars headlights passing by when I realized there were no windows. I decided to pray about it again and I had chills all through my body and that is when i realized that no matter how many times I pray that Heavenly Father will give me an answer. Show more Show less
