Hi I'm Colton Barney

I'm from Southern Utah. I play soccer, snowboard, wakeboard and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 21 years old and am the oldest of 4 kids. Soccer is the game. Served 2 year mission in Houston Texas Yall. I love snowboarding / wakeboarding / fourwheeling / fishing pretty much anything outdoors and a love for sports! I will attend college at Utah Valley University spring of 2015 and play soccer there. I love my family, my friends, and I love my faith.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because i love this gospel, i love this church, and i love Jesus Christ. I don't know where i would be in my life if it wasn't for this church. So many times in my life when i have struggled it has always been there to lift me up and help me get back on my feet. I know the Book of Mormon is true, another testament of Jesus Christ is given from god to us to help us in our lives. I know Thomas S. Monson is the Prophet on the earth today, and receives revelation from god to lead and guide Christs church. I know Joseph Smith was a Prophet of god, and saw what he said he saw and restored Christs church once again on the earth. And I know that through sincere prayer, with real intent, and faith in Christ anyone can figure these things out for themselves.

How I live my faith

I loved my mission it was very tough but also very rewarding. I loved helping people out in their lives when they were struggling, and helping them come closer to Jesus Christ. That is what we do / did as missionaries and is a great opportunity to serve others and serve the lord. Answering misunderstood questions about the church, lots of people are confused about what our church is about and hear lots of rumors about it, I love being able to answer their questions and help them see that we are a great church with very good morals and values and centered on Jesus Christ.
