Hi I'm Justin

I'm from Marysville, Washington. I love snowboarding, hiking, and being with my friends. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I've moved around my entire life. I've lived in Florida, Alabama, Utah, Virginia, California, Texas, Washington. I've moved around 13 times before I was twenty. I'm grateful for this opportunity because I have been able to learn to adapt and meet people easily which will definitely help me throughout my life. I have many hobbies including playing guitar, hiking, snowboarding, playing basketball, and hanging out with friends. Friends are a huge strength to me in my life. The positive influence of my friends is what has helped me straighten out my life and get me on the path I need to go. I now have the wonderful opportunity to serve a two-year mission in Tempe Arizona speaking spanish! I know that God has placed me in certain places to meet certain people and do certain things. I know I can always put my trust in Him because He knows what's best for me. Sometimes that involves doing hard things, but through faith and the atonement we can do hard things.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that God has a plan for each and every one of us. He gave his Only Begotten son to die for our afflictions, sins, and sorrows. I know that he gives us prophets to give us direction on how to return to live with him after we die. It isn't easy, but it is a simple plan. I know he called Joseph Smith to restore this wonderful gospel in this last dispensation of time. We have all the knowledge and utilities we need to return to love with our Father in Heaven again. God loves me. He loves all of his children. He knows what's best for us and he has a wonderful work on this earth today. Joseph Smith, along with thousands of others, gave their lives for this great gospel. I'm so thankful for all of their diligence and efforts.

How I live my faith

I currently am serving a full-time two-year service mission in Mesa, AZ. I spend my time teaching our beliefs to those who haven't had a chance to hear. We serve the community wherever we are called to and we try to make a positive impact to the area. I strive to be an example of Christ in all things that I do. I try and think how we would think, or love how he would love. There is no way I can match up to his infinite love and wisdom, but I know I can make a difference by becoming more like him each day.
