"Live in such a way that people who know you but don’t know Christ will want to know Christ because they know you." David Burton

About Me

I'm currently a freshman in college studying Exercise Science. I wish to be a Physical Therapist someday and help those around me. I love doing anything outdoors like running and hiking. I like Cross Country and my favorite sports to watch are hockey and football. I have recently been called to serve as a missionary for my church. I enjoy serving others on a daily basis and try to improve my life each and every day.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes me happy. The teachings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints make sense and I can easily relate to others within my church. Knowing that I will be able to live again with God after this life is a reassuring and peaceful message in this hectic world. I know that by living the standards of my church, I will be happier in the long run. I am also a Mormon because the teachings of my church simply make sense. For example, I have learned that obedience truly does bring liberation. The teachings found in the For Strength of Youth pamphlet and the principles discussed in the Word of Wisdom really do bring happiness. Although at some points people may think they are making a sacrifice because they didn't participate in a certain activity, but they always realize later that it was so worth it. The Lord knows what's best for us because He knows us individually. If we have faith and obey the things He commands, I know we will have happy and successful lives.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in a couple of different ways. First, I constantly share it with those around me. My words and actions represent my faith and what I stand for. I try to be an example everyday so that others will want to know more about my beliefs and what they mean to me. I also live my faith by serving others. Charity is possibly the greatest quality we can possess, so I try my best live a life full of it. So many people have served me throughout my life so I want to serve as well. I believe there can never be enough charity!

What is faith?

Addy Klein
Faith = Belief + Action. I love thinking of faith in this way because it is so simple. Faith is not just believing that something is true, it is actually doing something that shows you KNOW it's true. To have faith in Jesus Christ is to trust Him and be confident that He loves you. If we have faith in Jesus Christ, we should trust the Lord enough to follow His commandments, even when we don't understand them or the reason for them. Show more Show less
