Hi I'm Shota

I'm Japanese country boy, an university student, love music and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and grew up in Japan. I have ten people in my family! I love each of my family members. They are my best friends. I'm a ordinary university student, studying primary education and social studies. And I love music! I like singing. I play the instruments such as guitar, violin and drums as well. I served as a volunteer missionary of the church in Tokyo Japan for two years. One of my favorite activities as a missionary was Goeigo English conversation class!! Through out my mission I became to like English!! By the way, English is a foreign language for me. So please forgive me if there is any miss spell or grammar. ^^;

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were converted when they were young before they married. Mom and dad bring me to the church since when I was born. I love singing hymns. It's really fun and I feel good when I here the sounds and lyrics. My church friends are so fun and kind! They are like family members. They play with me, make me laugh,help and teach me. There are no restrictions such as age or job, to become friends each other. I love going to church! Through going to church every week, I remember our God and the purpose of life, think about my family and friends. It gives a chance to decide do good, be better person every week. I'm not perfect. Other people too, I guess. We need to go to church. And Father in heaven needs us. Because we are His children. The teaching of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the guideline of my life. I'm happy being a Mormon. I know that He is watching over us.

How I live my faith

I go to church every week. I know it's really important, even though it sounds easy. I read scriptures everyday and pray often anywhere. I don't want to forget the purpose of life, why I live on Earth, so I keep reading the Bible and, the Book of Mormon. I try to be a good friend and neighbor at school by being honest and cheerful. Those make my life happy.
