Hi I'm Christopher

The Church is the greatest thing I have in life. I'm serving a mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the fourth oldest in a family of six kids. I love to sing, and play the piano and guitar. I love running and playing ultimate frisbee. I am about to graduate from high school. I am preparing to serve a mission and am leaving in August. I love my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes me happy. It makes me happy because I know that I have a Father in Heaven and that He loves me. He knows exactly what I'm going through and wants the best for me. That is why He sent me here. To learn and progress. I believe that Jesus Christ suffered the Atonement for me so I could come back and live with God. He is the way. The LDS Church believes in living prophets. This is a testimony that God loves me. God still gives us prophets to help us come closer to Him because He loves us, just like in the Bible. Following Christ's example has made me happy. I love Him and this church.

How I live my faith

I try to follow Jesus Christ as closely as I can. Christ taught us to pray and so I pray every day. I pray every day to be able to feel the spirit. James said that "faith without works is dead" so I also pray to find someone who I can help that day. During each day I seek out those who I can help. Sometimes it is just a casual conversation in the hall, but I try to help someone in any way every day. I am now serving a mission for the Lord and giving two years of my life to serving God's children in Thailand. Sometimes it's hard to do everything that Jesus Christ wants us to do, but I've learned that by following His example I can be happy.
