Hi I'm Zachary Dean Simkins

I love to do sports such as cross country, swimming, and track. I also love singing and dancing! I am a Mormon

About Me

I am the second oldest out of five children. I love doing sports and also reading good books. I also love being in musicals. I was in two high school musicals which were "The Music Man" and "Footloose." My favorite parts were when I got a chance to dance. I have grown to appreashiate learning. I have so much more to learn and to explore and the most exciting things to study is the Gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have prayed to My Father in Heaven and asked if this church is true and have received an answer that I cannot deny that it is true. Everything that I have learned while in the gospel has given me the strength so that I can make it through this life in earth. I would be nothing without the gospel in my life. With the strength that I receive from knowing what my savior Jesus Christ did for me I know I can accomplish anything. The gospel has given me so much hope and it is what propelles me through life. I have read the Book of Mormon and I know that it is the word of God because it testifies of Christ on every page. I hosnestly don't know where I would be if I was not a Mormon butI know where I am going as I live all the Commandments God perscribes.

How I live my faith

I think the best way to show what you believe is to live it. I love going about serving others and helping where I can. I love talking with people about how they can use the free gift that God has given us so that we can be happy not only in this life but throughout eternity. I study and ponder the scriptures and find ways that I can apply it to my life. I pray morning and night and as much as possible in between so that I can become the man that heavenly Father wants me to be. I am continually changing things so that I can become more life my Savior. I know that I am not perfect but I strive to be more perfect everyday so when God deems my time sufficent I can be perfect someday.
