Hi I'm Christian

I grew up in California. I love life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the youngest of 4 kids, and despite what everybody says about the youngest child, maybe some of it is true. I'm a college student, and when I'm not studying I love to listen to music, watch movies, and play tennis. I love many things in life, one being my family. I love how how happy they make me feel, and I feel so grateful that God placed them in my life. I love the world in which we live, and I love the people in it that I have the pleasure of getting to know. Lastly, I love being a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of this church not only because it brings me happiness, but also because I know for myself that it is true. This knowledge of truth, or testimony, is one of the greatest gifts that God has blessed me with in my life. I know that the Book of Mormon is a divinely inspired book of God that accompanies the Bible as another testament of Jesus Christ. I know this not because somebody told me it is true, but because I asked God in prayer and received my own answer that it is true. I want to be the kind of person who makes their own choices. I want to be the kind of person who stands up for what is right. I want to be the kind of person who helps others and makes other people feel happy when I'm around them. I want to be the kind of person who God wants me to be. I want to be my best self. I want to be a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith the way I live my life––with enthusiasm! Everyday, I try to be the best I can be for both myself and God. Along the road map of my life I stumble and make mistakes, but through the saving power of Jesus Christ I am able to get back up and continue moving forward. Everyday I read my scriptures and pray to God that I might have his spirit. Only with his spirit am I able to follow Jesus Christ's example and love how He loves and live how He lives. I am currently on a mission, serving our Heavenly Father and His children.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

To increase faith in Jesus Christ, you must first simply believe in him. Once you have this desire to believe in Christ, if you obey the commandments which God has established, and try to grow by studying His word which is found in the scriptures, your faith will also grow. Show more Show less
