Hi I'm Weston

I'm from Gilbert, Arizona. I'm all about hunting and wakeboarding. I love my momma and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Ever since I can remember I was always going hunting with my Dad. During my teenage years I enjoyed going on numerous hunts with my brother and sisters and from these adventures I draw some of my most favorite memories. I seemed to be always late to school during Dove Hunting season, but that's how it goes! I tried to fill some of my time with my hobbies of wakeboarding, snowboarding and lots of hunting! I spent some years raising money to support myself on a 2 year mission. I made money by selling firewood, working contruction for my dad and cutting down trees for a Tree Service Company. I tore my ACL wakeboarding a few weeks previous to leaving on my mission but now I'm here in the good ol' south eating good BBQ and lots of Corn Bread. I've always loved BBQ and my dad and I have perfected the art of cooking pork, turkeys and whatever else in our underground deep pit cookers. I love hangin with my family, going camping, and doing anything outdoors. I like trying to beat my dad at golf, but I have yet to succeed. I love going to our big family dinners once a month with all my cousins, (There's a lot of us.) Right now, I'm currently in Little Rock, Arkansas just loving the southern culture and not so much of the humidity. I enjoy serving and I try to always be on the look out for someone who needs help. I'll do anything for my family to make them happy and proud. Family is where it's at!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the LDS faith but there is a time appointed for every individual to come to a full commitment to the church. This desire and dedication does not come in a single wave, but in a lifetime of learning and growing. I can honestly feel my desire to give of myself more and more as I continue in my missionary service. I try to learn something valuable everyday. With these learning experiences and times of change, my goal is to be like the Perfect One, the Savior of the World, Jesus Christ. It's not easy in any sense, but it is so worth it. I love the Book of Mormon and I have an uncontrollable fire burning inside of me to help others gain a testimony of this great book. More importantly than gaining a testimony of the divine origin of the Book of Mormon is coming to a knowledge of Jesus Christ and His love for us. Words can't describe how thankful I am for the Holy Bible which literally contains the stories of Jesus' Ministry on the earth and the companion volumn of scripture, the Book of Mormon. And I won't forget the great blessing of having a Prophet who receives revelation for our day. God continues to speak with His chosen servants and I know without a doubt that He hears and anwers our prayers. This knowledge and testimony has come though the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I owe every blessing I have to Jesus Christ and what a blessing it is to belong to His church, which has been restored in its fulness again.

How I live my faith

I grew up in this faith but my testimony wasn't fully solidified until I started teaching a class of 6 year old children in my home ward Primary. As I taught these children of the simple truths of the gospel, I began to feel a great sense of responsibility to make these things known unto the world also. Leaving it all behind and putting it all on the line, I now enjoy the awesome opportunity I have to share this great message with the people here in the "Bible Belt" of the country. I believe whole heartedly in the saying, "I may not be able to do everything, but I can at least do something." I stand by the fact that the Savior sacrificed His life for us, and in turn I can sacrifice my time and talents, as small and insignificant as they may seem, to try and change someone's life forever.
