About Me

A cold winter's snowfall lightly dusts the mountainside beneath grey skies. The scene is silent, save it be for a slight russling in the trees under the arctic breeze. For most this is the time to stay indoors, shelterred from Montana's bitter side. But for one, it is the perfect makings of an Adventure...

Why I am a Mormon

"It’s like in the great stories. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn’t want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn’t. They kept going. Because they were holding on to something. That there’s some good in this world… and it’s worth fighting for" -Samwise the Brave

How I live my faith

Having been born and raised in the Church, I regularly attended Church and Youth Activites with my family. Through the Church my four brothers and I were put through the Scouting program where the eldest of us earned our Eagle Scouts with the youngest currently striving to someday soar with his older brothers. But, after a time I felt that I had begun to out grown the Family Ward I was attending and chose to attend the Bozeman YSA/University Ward with those in the area more closely to my age group. Like any Teenager at this time in their life, attending the YSA Ward provided a small yet satisifying independance. Going to Church had become more a personal choice rather than that feeling of needing to drag my feet behind my parents every Sunday as we walked into the Chapel. And with members of the YSA ward being closer in age to me, I quickly experienced the excitement of making new friends while attending Church with old friends, and had the opportunity to be exposed to those whom had both served and were preparing to serve missions. I am currently Serving the Lord on a Two Year LDS Mission in Carlsbad, California
