Hi I'm Spencer

I was born in Ohio and raised in Idaho. I have a love of knowledge and all things mechanical. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love learning. I have always been a good student, and want to continue to study even after school is over. I was a National Merit Scholar, and have been attending Brigham Young University in Provo, studying mechanical engineering. I am currently preparing to serve a mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because the LDS Church has been the greatest source of truth and peace in my life. I have a great respect for the many different religions on the earth because they all seek to teach and help the people of the world. They all have truth to them. They all bring peace and hope to those they shepherd. But to me, the LDS Church stands out among these other churches as the sun to the stars. I do not fear for those who do not have the understanding that I do, for God is perfectly just and perfectly merciful, judging each according to his capacity and understanding. And how much sweeter life is to have an understanding of his plan. The perfection of God's plan for us, his children, is astounding to me. I have no fear for the future and am able to be forgiven for my past mistakes. I am at peace with the world, for I know that the trials of this life will only last a short while, when compared with the big picture of my existence. I testify that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true church upon the earth today. I testify that prophets of old spoke of Christ, His mission, and our purpose on this earth, and that prophets today continue to do the same. I testify that Joseph Smith was the first of these latter-day prophets and that he restored to us, through the translation of the Book of Mormon, the testimonies and teachings of Christ's representatives among the ancient American peoples, which serves as an additional testimony of Christ and which supports, not detracts from, the Bible. I testify that President Thomas S. Monson is a living prophet, who leads and directs the Church today. These things I say in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to be a good neighbor and a friend to everyone I meet.
