Hi I'm Mason

I love sports and I´m a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Utah with my parents and my sister. They are truly helped me to get along even in the hardest of times. They have supported me as I went through high school and tried new things. That includes Lacrosse. Even though I was only able to play it for three years, I loved every second of it. I also enjoy math, even if everyone else hates it. I am currently serving a mission in South America but when I return, I will finish my degree in Mechanical Engineering with an Aerospace Emphasis. I have seen so much change in me these past few years and I am now certain that the ability to serve a mission has saved me from going down some really bad paths. I know the Lord loves me and I know that He lives.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in the church and I love it. I love the spirit that it brings to my life. As I continue to learn more about the gospel, my testimony is strengthened more and more. The knowledge that I have gained at church is spectacular and has helped me through some very difficult times. To be honest, there were a lot of times that I only went to church because it was expected of me by my family and friends. But that is the greatest blessing I have ever had. The fact that they keep me going through the times when I wasnt fully in it is a great way to remember that the people here in the church just want to help you have the joy that they are feeling. I feel it too. Thats why I am sharing it with the people now.

How I live my faith

The way I live my faith is by putting my all into it. I know that in the past I might not have taken seriously everything that I needed to do. But now I have realized to importance to always read the scriptures, pray with faith, and attend church. With these three simple actions, one can truly come closer to God. That does not mean that that is all we must do. I also am keeping the other commandments that the Lord has given us. This includes fasting, the Word of Wisdom, and the law of Chastity, just to name a few. One commandment that I am completing right now is the commandment to share the gospel to all the world. As a missionary, I help other people to see the joy that one can feel by living the gospel.

Why was a Restoration of the Gospel needed? Haven’t we always had the Bible?

When the Savior was on the earth, He taught His Gospel to his followers. This gospel was something so important that the people recognized the joy that He brings us. We are going to compare this gospel to a treat. This treat was only in one store. After the Apostles were taken from the earth, this gospel was not here. This is as if they closed the store that had this special treat. Although. Although many people truly wanted to do what was right, they did not have the authority to change the doctrines that the Savior had left behind. Show more Show less
