Hi I'm Collin

I am a San Diego native. I am a pre-med student and surfer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student and am studying biology in hopes that I can go to medical school to become a Pediatric Orthopedic surgeon. Besides my love to learn, I love to surf, do humanitarian work, rock-climb, swim, play water polo, work on/ride my vintage motorcycle, sculpt, paint, and spend time with my family. I have been lucky to be able to go on a hand full of humanitarian trips down to Mexico, one of which where my group and raised money and gathered donations to bring Christmas presents to those who are less fortunate. I love helping others.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have found that the simple truths and organization that are contained in the LDS church are the same truths and organization that existed when Christ set up his church with the original twelve apostles after His resurrection. Reading the passages the New Testament have shown me that our God is a God of miracles, revelations, and a holder of true love for his children. The Lord loves us all more than we can ever imagine and has a plan for each and everyone of us! He sent his son, Jesus Christ, to suffer for our sins, pains, and every affliction that man will experience. All he asks in return is that we talk to him, put our best foot forward, and follow the commandments that he has laid out in the scriptures and through the prophets. I love my Heavenly Father and my elder brother Jesus Christ. Without them in my life I would have no purpose and no hope.

How I live my faith

I live my faith everyday by trying to follow the example that Jesus Christ set as best as I can. We all have our hardships and failures in life, and I am no exception to that! The Lord asks that we try our hardest to follow him. I have found that letting his light and spirit shine through me is the best way to serve him and I do that by following his commandments, helping others around me, and by trying to put forth my best works in his name. I also am a Sunday school teacher and I am about to serve the Lord for two years on a full time mission coming on November 2012.
