Hi I'm Austin Clay

My name is Austin. I love being outdoors and playing sports. My main sports are Baseball, Ping-pong and Basketball. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I'm from Danville, Virginia! I love Hunting, fishing, camping, and really anything outdoors! Playing baseball is my second home and I love playing Basketball, Ping-Pong and Rugby! I'm a Seattle Seahawk fan by birth and also by choice! I am also engaged to the most amazing girl who I am so privileged to call MY Best Friend! I love serving my Heavenly Father. I leave for my mission January 5th and will be serving in the Colorado Denver North Mission. I love my God and would lay my life down for what I believe and know to be true. There are many things about this gospel that a lot of people don't truly understand. I'm a member of The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints for many reasons. The entire central part of the gospel circles around the family. God loved us enough to give us our families. Another reason, I have found true and utter happiness from this gospel. One more reason I will give, is because its not only a religion but its a life stlye. We represent Jesus Christ at all times and in all places. We should act how he would act. True, we will struggle, but thats just human nature. We just always need to strive to live how he would have us live.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I have been given a testimony of the truthfulness of this gospel. There are other churches and other faiths. But this church has every truth and happiness that God wants us to have. I love being able to talk to other people about my church and watching it help them in their lives. Their is so much to this church that I wish people would just slow down to learn about. This church has truly blessed me in all my activities.

How I live my faith

As a member of The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints, I strive each and every day to live as though Jesus Christ was present at all times. I sometimes fall, as will everyone, but thats where Jesus Christ's atonement comes in! I have been called to serve as a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. And assigned to labor in the Fort Collins Colorado mission. And I will serve the people of Colorado with everything that I am!

How are modesty and chastity related? How can parents teach their children to be modest in dress, language and behavior?

Austin Clay
Modesty, Language and chastity are a big issue with the world's youth today. Young Women and Young Men should know that are bodies are sacred and we shouldn't go around parading them around for the world to see. We should always wear clothing that is appropriate. Language should never be used not matter what the situation may be. Nobody is perfect and we sometimes use language. If we ever do slip up and use foul language, we should immediately beg for forgiveness. The law of chastity should be followed by all. We should reserve intimate feelings for our future companions. Meaning that you should save that stuff for marriage. Also, as parents it is, "Your Job" to teach your children correct principles. Be an example to your children. Fathers, Support, and love your wife with everything that you are! Mothers, Support, and love your husbands with everything that you are. This is a team effort! Show more Show less

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Austin Clay
Everything around us tells us that there is a God. I promise, there is no way that there was just a "POP" and we all just appeared. Look at the flowers, look at the trees, look at little infants. Something so perfect as a little child had to be created by a higher power. I truly belive with everything that I am, that God lives. He is our literal Father in Heaven and he loves us.
