Hi I'm Sean

I grew up in Florida. I was home schooled. I enjoy reading, music, and games. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm something of a nerd most of the time. Many people think I'm weird, but they all say "in a good way." I love to play and make games. I'm really into helping people have fun. I'm still young, so I'm not doing much as far as family goes yet, but I'm looking forward to it.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into an LDS family, and as such I was introduced to the gospel very quickly. As I grew, I want to church every week and I learned the principles of the gospel. I was baptized when I was eight, and received the Aaronic Priesthood when I was ordained to be a Deacon at age twelve. However, that does not mean I didn't need to be converted, or to learn the truth of the gospel myself. Somewhere in my teenage years, I felt the twinge of doubt start to enter my mind. Fellowship with my church leaders, support from my family, and a great deal of prayer eliminated my doubts. I see many gospel principles making perfect sense to me, and I feel as though I understand the will of my Heavenly Father quite often. I don't expect life to be easy or seem perfect, but I know that my Heavenly Father has my best interests in mind. I can trust Him to always be there when I need him, even if that means letting me work things out for myself if that's what I need.

How I live my faith

Through my teenage life I've had several different positions of leadership. I've led the boys my age more than once, I was a Patrol Leader in the Boy Scout troop, and I've even done secretarial duties for various other leaders. Now that I'm approaching my adult life, my unique talents are starting to present themselves. I'm getting assignments based on my own abilities, such as leading the music during meetings and organizing small groups to perform repetitive tasks. I'm also willing to perform the same duties asked of me that are asked of everyone else, such as giving lessons or speaking in meetings. I'm taking my duties to a higher level very soon, as I'm about to serve a full-time mission for the church. I look forward to the opportunities I'll have to preach the gospel for the next two years of my life.
