Hi I'm Vaughn

I grew up in Gilbert AZ. I love football and Disney movies. I want to be a Cattle Rancher. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was raised playing all sorts of sports. I settled for football and baseball in high school. Went to state my senior year in football. After graduating from high school i decided to move in with my grandparents, a small country cowboy town. It is there i decided to raise cattle and become a cowboy. I love the outdoors camping, fishing, shooting, riding, or whatever it is. I love being outside.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because i know for myself that this gospel is true. I was raised up a Mormon but i couldn't lean on my parents testimony my whole life. I needed to find out for myself if this church is true. I may have waited a little long to make this decision to find out for my own but i did it. At the beginning of my mission i made it a goal to gain a sure and strong testimony of my own. I had read the Book of Mormon in about 4 months and knelt down many times asking if this book and this church be true. I haven't had any big "Ahh haa" moments. It has been little moments of peace and comfort when i had asked my father in Heaven if this is true. And to this day I am thankful for those little moments in life where God has blessed me with a knowledge of this truth. I know that Jesus is the Christ. He came into this world to set the perfect example and lay down His life for me and everyone else. He suffered beyond anything i could imagine just for us. I know that He rose from the dead and was ressurrected. I know that He lives. I know from experience that living His gospel brings a happiness that you cant find in any worldly thing. I know that God lives. I know that He hears my prayers. I know that He answers prayers as well. I know that Jesus Christ church was restored once again to the Earth. I know that Joseph Smith saw God the Father and His son Jesus Christ that spring day. I know Thomas S. Monson is the true and living prophet on the earth today. I love my family and know that we can live together forever as we follow His commandments. I know these things to be true. I know it because this Gospel is simple. If you want to find out, simply pray to our Father in Heaven and ask if these things to be true. I know that if you do these things with full purpose in heart, He will answer you. He has answered me. I love my friends, family, my Savior, and Heavenly Father!

How I live my faith

Currently I am living my faith by sharing the gospel with others. About a year ago i left to Tennessee to serve a two your church mission. As a missionary we go out and share the Gospel with others and help them come closer to Christ. By helping others gain a testimony of Jesus Christ and His gospel it has strengthened my own testimony so much.
