Hi I'm Forrest

I was born and raised in the Rocky Mountains and I love them. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love mountain biking, music, and my family. I thrill in the difficulty of pedaling up a steep rugged trail and am equally excited by the prospect of bouncing over the rocks on my way down. I play the Saxophone and sing. Jazz is my favorite music to play but Marching band was my favorite band to participate in. I have participated in marching band competitions throughout Idaho and Utah and marched in a Disneyland Parade. I enjoy singing christian music but would also enjoy the opportunity to sing with a more contemporary choir. I am an eagle scout and am a supporter of scouting. Most of all I love my family. I have five siblings and two wonderful parents. My extended family is amazing and large. We love seeing each other as we pass through town and enjoy spending time together at family reunions.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents and their parents are Mormons and I grew up in this church. I eventually realized that nothing else in this world can offer the peace that can be found through the only true church. I have seen countless blessings in my life and the lives of those around me because we live the teachings of Christ's gospel. I Know that this is the only true church and I Know that Christ was crucified because he loved us. He made it possible to have peace in this life and Eternal Life in the next. My best friends are ultimately Christ and my Father in Heaven, the father of my spirit. I know my Heavenly Father loves me because he communicates with me through the Holy Spirit. I know it's true and I cannot deny it.

How I live my faith

I worked for 5 months in construction after graduating High school so I could afford to serve a mission for the LDS church and my God. Everything good in my life has come from the gospel of Christ and his church which is once again on the Earth with the proper priesthood authority. I want to share what has blessed my life with others by serving a mission for the next two years. I love reading the scriptures and seeing what my Heavenly Father has to tell me through the records of his holy prophets. My life has direction because of the gospel of Christ and I can find peace through Christ.
