Hi I'm Colten

I love sports, the outdoors, a good laugh, and my crazy family. I'm serving a mission in Baltimore Maryland. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

In high school, I played baseball, basketball, and I ran track. When I got to college, I started playing rugby. I also love snowboarding. My whole life I've been an avid BMX rider, and I love to go out and just ride for hours at a time until I drop from exhaustion. I drive a 1994 Jeep Wrangler, and I love that thing to death. It goes almost anywhere I point it's square headlights. I am also preparing to serve an LDS mission for two years, and I cannot wait to leave.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? The simple answer is because I want to be. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints helps me to be happy, and when I'm happy I feel good. Everybody wants to be happy, and this is the way that I can get that. I was born into the church, but just like everybody else, I had to have my own conversion. I prayed to my Father in Heaven, and he answered me through the thoughts and feeling of my heart and helped me to know that this is the true church. Through the wonderful gift of the Atonement, I know that I will be abel to live with Him again someday.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by reading the scriptures, going to church every Sunday, and surrounding myself with good friends. It's not always easy to do these things, becasue we are tempted everyday to fall away from Christ, but I want to be more like Christ and help others and to make others happy, and that is what helps me to live faithfully; by serving our brothers and sisters around the world.
