Hi I'm Zachary Beesley

I've lived in Idaho all my life. Snowboarding is a favorite among my adventures. My guitar could be better. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I love to spend time with friends. Good friends have made me who I am. I love to go snowboarding with friends. Their good examples have shown me how involved God can be in a person's life. My goal is to be what God wants me to be. Serving as an LDS missionary in Detroit has taught me what God can make of me. If I could have one wish, I would want to be changed into someone that makes everybody happy. I hate being the one that causes sadness or anger in someone else's life even if it's an accident. That's what I love about Jesus Christ. His sacrifice can heal the damage that I cause. He turns a stumbling block into a steping stone. He's done that with my many trials. I don't claim to have more trials than anyone else, they've just been hard for me. I'll talk with anyone who's willing to get to know me, and teach them what I've learned from my Father in Heaven.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a member because this is the only thing that gives me hope in life. It gives me hope because God answers my prayers. Through the Gopsel of Jesus Christ which is found in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church) I can find peace. My guilt and shame are washed away through the atonement of Jesus Christ. If it wasn't for the Mormon Curch, I wouldn't never have know what that feels like. There is nothing else that has brought me such a feeling. This church that I'm apart of is not just another religion. It's much more than that. It's the key to happiness.

How I live my faith

I go through ever day trying to live my life the way Christ would live it. I'm terrible at it. Every day I have to ask God for forgiveness. If I'm serious, God always lets me know. He brings peace to my heart. That's my life every day. I'm just want to be approved of him. The hope that Jesus Christ can make that possible is what keeps me going.
