Hi I'm Spencer

I'm a missionary serving in the wonderful California Arcadia mission. I love sharing the gospel. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Murray, Utah. However, I have spent most of my life in other places, including Colorado and Idaho. Idaho is pretty much my home. I come from a rather large family of 13 children. I really enjoy being with my siblings. I feel it has helped me prepare for the future. It truly helped prepare me for my mission and hopefully fatherhood. I am forever grateful to my amazing parents for all of the life lessons and time they have spent on me. Also, I love spending time outside whether it be skating down the street, playing lacrosse, or climbing a huge mountain somewhere. I love working with wood and cabinetry. I have also developed a love for diodes, wire and soldering irons. Electronics. I have worked on a farm for a large portion of my life, but I put my country life aside for a minute to serve the Lord and God's children in California. I love life. Like, a lot.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon not only because my parents raised me in His church, but also because of the great friends i have made and kept throughout my teen years. I have hit rough patches and expect to hit more but the church and the friendships I've made have kept me holding to the iron rod of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I find, teach and baptize. Being a missionary is definitely the best way to live the gospel, I love seeing the difference the gospel makes in the lives of those I meet and those I know and love. It is also very rewarding to feel and see the impact that the gospel of Jesus Christ has in my life. I know that through faith, repentance, baptism, receiving the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end so we can be worthy of that divine gift of the Holy Ghost, we can truly find peace and joy in this life. I haven't always been the best person, but through following that pattern that Jesus Christ set out for us I have found peace and a true love for life. Turning outward and living to help others has really become my deepest desire. I still like to have fun and enjoy life, but I try to keep the bigger picture in mind.
