Hi I'm Christian

I grew up in Southern California. I am a wrestler and I like to cook!

About Me

I enjoy running, wrestling, mountain biking, cooking, surfing, playing badminton badly, playing with my dogs, beach volleyball, watching movies, jiu jitsu, hacky sack, and embarrassing friends and often family whenever the chance arises. I love Wrestling it is my favorite sport! I do not compete anymore but I now coach youth wrestling and love it! I am the type of person who hates to miss a party! I love hanging out with friends and family and having a good time! I want to major in Psychology, I love how it changes my view of the world and those around me in a most positive way. I enjoy cooking I think my favorite thing to cook is chicken because there are so many different ways to do it! I have 1 nephew and another niece or nephew on the way. I already love them both to pieces!

Why I am a Mormon

This past year I have sought after a testimony as best I can. I have finally read the Book of Mormon. I have prayed about it several times and I have felt the peace of the Holy Ghost manifest the truth of it unto me. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet who was called of God. I know that Thomas S. Monson is a true prophet of God. I have been in the same room with him and I have heard his voice. I know that the Bible is the word of God. I know that this is Christ's church restored here on earth today. I know that God lives. I know that God lives with all of my heart and soul. I know that he loves us all with a perfect love. I know that he has a specific plan for each and every one of us. I know that families can be together forever through Heavenly Father's plan. I know that if we receive the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement, repent, accept baptism, receive the gift of the holy ghost, and endure to the end, we will be saved at the last day and have eternal life. I know that true, lasting, eternal happiness only comes through Christ and following His commandments. Most of all I know that, because he also loves us with a perfect love, Jesus Christ Atoned for my sins and the sins of the world, and I know that through him I can become perfected and return to live with my Heavenly Father once again. I can truly testify of all these wonderful things. I would not trade my testimony for anything on earth. It is my most valuable treasure.

How I live my faith

Everyday I make it a goal to make someone's day just a little bit better! I smile and hold doors, I offer help whenever it's needed and whatever else I think of on the way. I think it is a wonderful way to help make the world a better place to live! I like to share uplifting messages to everyone that I can, so I run a page on a certain social network that provides those uplifting messages to help any and all people around the world. Soon I will be serving as a full time missionary! I live my faith by striving to keep the commandments. Jesus Christ said "If ye love me, Keep My Commandments."

What is being a Mormon like?

Being a Mormon is like being a part of a loving family. Everyone is mindful of each other. It's like you immediately belong and everyone is always happy to see you. We continually strive to help the lives of others in any way we can, especially for our members. Much of my joy comes from my family One of the wonderful reasons we are here on earth is to have joy and let me tell you, being a Mormon is definitely definitely joyous. Show more Show less
