Hi I'm Elder Moser

I love to play sports, especially Volleyball. I'm a missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have lived in Utah for my entire life. I have always enjoyed watching and participating in all sports. I really love to watch football, and basketball. I love to play volleyball, basketball, and soccer. I enjoy playing video games, and hanging out with friends and my family. With a total of seven brothers and sisters, I know the importance and blessings of an eternal family. After high school, I attended a semester of college at Utah Valley University. My major in college is biology, my eventual goal is to attend medical school. Currently I am a missionary serving in the Great California Ventura Mission and loving it.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church, however, I have always known for myself of the gospel's truthfulness. I have gained a closer relationship with my Heavenly Father through this Gospel and by living by its precepts. This knowledge has rooted deep, but I would be lying if there weren't times in my life that I felt my Faith was on the line and I was in need of a spiritual witness in order to have the strength to continue. I'm excited to say that my Heavenly Father has provided me with the trials and experiences necessary for me to gain a sure testimony. For instance, I had the opportunity to go to Washington D.C. with my high school Government Class. While I was there I felt like something was off. I was constantly surrounded by worldly language and activities. I felt dark inside, something was missing. It was the spirit. When we attended the World War II memorial I remember feeling down. I had taken the trip to have fun and to enjoy the sites there were to see, but I wasn't enjoying myself at all. I felt as if I was the only one there that cared about values. While at the memorial, I ran into some LDS missionaries. Suddenly it was like someone had brought a bright light into the dark room I felt I was in. After talking with them I felt full of light again, it was at that point when I gained another witness for myself that there was something more to this church than suits and ties. Those missionaries didn't know it, but they confirmed any questions I had, or would have later on. There is no way to deny what I felt that day, nor can I imagine myself ever doing so. I'm proud to say at this point in my life my testimony of the truthfulness of this gospel is unshakable. People can say what they want about this church, Joseph Smith, and the Book of Mormon; however, they cannot shake what I know to be true. That is that I know that this is the only true church on the face of the earth. Living this Gospel is the only way to find lasting peace and true happiness, of this I am sure.

How I live my faith

My faith has taught me a lot of things, but the one thing that I feel is the most important thing my faith has taught me is how to live. My actions define me, and only when I have made decisions the follow the Gospel of Jesus Christ have I been able to find happiness. The Atonement is real to me. I've used it in my life. I've felt the spirit of peace that comes from knowing I am clean. Not perfect, but clean. I am so lucky to have to opportunity to serve as a full time missionary, and show others what this gospel can do for them. I do my best to follow the example of the Savior. I always keep a smile on my face, so that others can visibly see that I live and love what I believe. I live my faith through my actions. I always try to act in a way that others know I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I realize that what I do shows what I truly believe, and I never want to misrepresent my faith.
