Hi I'm Quinn

I grew up in Utah. I Played Lacrosse for five years. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Quinn, I have lived in Utah my whole life, I just finished my first semester of college and I loved it. It was really one of the best things I have ever done. I played Lacrosse in High school which is something that I really enjoy. I was also on student government in high school which is something else I enjoy doing. I will be serving a Lds mission in Germany in about a month, I am very excited to do so. I have three wonderful sisters and two loving parents. I want to be a Lds Seminary teacher or sports pyschologist not quite sure yet. I really love sports movies my favorite being Remember the Titans.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this church but I was converted to it when I was just starting high school. I was like any other kid I had my problems, I just didn't think anyone cared. I didn't really care either I was going to high school to have fun and I wasn't going to let anyone including myself stop me from doing that. I was going to church and seminary cause I had to, and because my friends were there. I remember having my life flipped upside down in ninth grade, I was going to be sophomore class president I was super excited, my life was going great. Then Religion in my life became a question, was I wasting my time? or was I trying to get somewhere with this? I wanted to know if this church I went to every week was right. So I read the Book Of Mormon, and I knelt in prayer after finishing it asking my Heavenly Father if what I had read was true, before my knees hit the floor I was filled with a feeling of peace and joy, I knew in that moment that what I was doing was not just some simple little thing. I was in fact apart of something so great and marvelous that I knew I had to find ways to get more of it in my life. I started to enjoy church and seminary more, I enjoyed being with people who shared my beliefs. I have never ever had a reason to look back on my descion almost four years ago. I am a Mormon because I have found The Book of Mormon to be true, I know that Joesph Smith through the Power of God translated it so that we as people could read it now and take part in it's everlasting joy through our Savior Jesus Christ who died for all of man. I know he did this so that we can live with our Heavenly Father again. I know that I am loved by Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father, I know that my Family can be together forever, I know that this church is true. I am a Mormon because of these things, and because I choose to be. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ Amen.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church every week with my family, I read my scriptures and pray about what I read. While I was at college I was called to be a sunday school teacher and really loved doing it. I got to teach kids my age and older about the Gospel and I loved learning as much as they did with each lesson. I was able to go hometeaching with my dad to some of the families in my home ward and teach them every month about lessons that we get each week in our monthly magazine. I am going to be serving a Two year mission in Frankfurt, Germany really soon I cannot wait to go and share this Gospel news with others.
