Hi I'm Wyatt

I was born and raised in Austin, Texas. I play guitar and I enjoy music of all kinds. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 20 years old and currently serving as a full-time missionary for two years in Scotland and Ireland. We're those guys you may see in the street or chapping on doors! The message that we share is the best and it changes lives -- that's why it means so much to me. Back at home I enjoyed playing sports in my free time; especially basketball, football, and ultimate frisbee. I express myself through music -- listening to it and playing it. I love watching movies and TV shows and quoting them for fun! I hope to continue my schooling at Brigham Young University- Idaho when I return from my mission. To any degree I just want to help people change. I've come to realise how much confusion is present in the world and I know that God has answers to our questions.

Why I am a Mormon

Once upon a time I chose to be a Latter-day Saint because it felt good -- I could find answers to my questions and I could feel God's active influence in my life. I spent a lot of time, however, trying to convince my friends that my beliefs were just like theirs. Over the past year or so I've recognised how wrong I was! I still choose to be a member of this Church because I can feel the Spirit here, but through study and prayer I've come to an understanding that this is God's Church -- it is His Way -- It's His Kingdom on earth before Jesus Christ comes again. This path is the Path of Salvation that our Father in Heaven has laid out for all of His children on earth and he wants all to come and partake! He shares this message with the world through His servants; and he has even given us proof that this is His Way. The Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ; this book changes lives. It's changed mine and I want it to change yours too. I know that each of us can come to a knowledge of the truth as we experiment -- as we search for the truth, apply the principles in our lives, and examine the results. I've been able to read the Book of Mormon, ask God if it's true, and looking back I've seen innumerable experiences that have led me to know of its truth. The effects of my faith have given me increased direction, confidence, and peace in my life. I have a hope for the future and I know what is to come. I'm so grateful to God for His ability and willingness to change our hearts and minds!

How I live my faith

I teach people about the Gospel of Jesus Christ -- specifically how it was changed by men on earth after the death of Jesus Christ and then restored by God through a Prophet in these days. I also teach people how they can know independent of anyone else that God is there, that His Church is on earth today, and that He leads that Church through a living Prophet. Something I've learned over the past year or so is that the truth isn't the most popular thing. I live my faith by holding firm to what I know to be true and constantly seeking God's guidance on how I can grow and develop. Before serving as a missionary I didn't feel comfortable talking to complete strangers or inviting people to think in a new light. But now I've learned that a smile or a conversation can make the world of a difference in an individual! Many people don't want to change -- especially in the UK(!!) -- but acts of kindness soften people up and invite the Spirit of Christ into our lives.
