Hi I'm Spencer Barrett

I grew up in Surprise, AZ. I love to play tennis, baseball, and listen to music! I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am a 19 year old college student/missionary, that went to BYU-I, I am studying Business Management with the hope of maybe one day I might own my own dentistry. I am a very people oriented type person, I miss all my friends, and wish them that they have a Merry Christmas. I was serving in the Santa Maria, Brazil mission and I am sharing the gospel in the language of Portuguese, but because I got sick I had to be sent home, but fortunately I have better health now and I am in Columbus, Ohio as a full time missionary! I love to play sports, go out with friends, and I am a total music junkie! I love being me!

Why I am a Mormon

Being a Mormon is a very tough thing to explain. I am a Mormon because of so many reasons, but the first being I know it is the true church. I believe it is because of the way that my life has turned out, I had so many oppurtunities to stop believing or to do what shouldnt be done. But because of my faith that the Lord Jesus Christ is my savior and I need to follow his example, I strive to do the things that he wouldnt want me do. The Holy Ghost testifies to me that this church is the true church, and Heavenly Father, and Jesus Christ want me to be here. We were put on this world for a purpose, and that purpose is to be happy. Although I have the oppurtunity to do drugs or drink I chose not too because I know that wouldnt make me happy. The happiness that I feel is knowledge that someday I will see my Father which is in Heaven again if I am worthy. The happiness that I feel is knowledge that my family is eternal and not just of this world. Too know that the girl I will someday marry will be with me forever, is an amazing feeling. Some people may think, "you only think this to make you feel good" but if you were to soften your heart and ask in sincerity through prayer you can know these truths as well. My purpose is to show people they arent alone, they are loved, their is a purpose for being here. That plan is the plan of happiness which our Father in Heaven planned for us because he loves us.

How I live my faith

Well how I live my faith is similar to anyone else, I help in the community when I am have the oppurtunity too. I absolutely love service, and I feel my faith is a service oriented faith. I have helped my church plan Christmas activities, I have helped the community through the church or through friends by clean up projects, moving, and just small and simple things. I also live my faith through my actions, I try to treat everyone the way they ought to be treated, and that is as a Son or Daughter of God!
