Hi I'm Christian Thorn

I was born in California but have grown up in Park City Utah. I love being active and enjoying the outdoors.

About Me

I am 18 years old and just finished my first semester of college and absolutely loved it. I am preparing to serve a mission in San Antonio Texas. Growing up i was introduced to so many great outdoor activities and sports. One that i have really stuck with is freestyle skiing. I began competing when i was 15 and have loved every minute of it. Through skiing i have been able to travel all over the country experiencing some of the greatest and most beautiful ski towns. I am now a freestyle coach helping kids achieve their dreams just as i have done.

Why I am a Mormon

For a long time i probably wouldn't have been able to answer the question "Why I am a Mormon" I was riding on my parents testimony and the testimonies of those around me. But id say this past year i have really come to understand why i am a Mormon. The reason i am a Mormon is because the feelings i get and knowledge i have gained from attending the temple and church are irreplaceable. Every time i open my scriptures to read they really speak to me and talk to me about challenges i am having in my life and how to go about fixing them. I know that all the LDS religions teachings are true and that by living what is taught you can come closer to Christ and live a happier more fulfilling life, I have seen these things in my life and know that they are true. These reasons testify to me that this is the only true gospel on the earth. This is way i am LDS.

How I live my faith

Growing up in an area where you are the minority can be really hard sometimes. The biggest thing that really helped me stay true to the gospel was the great friends i had and their influence on me. It was really hard sometimes being around all the crap of the world but i always knew that heavenly father was right there for me and whenever i needed him, he was there.
