Hi I'm Spencer

I love life, I love to sing, I love my family, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to learn and grow. There's something about finding a weakness and turning it around through Christ that fills me with joy. I love being active and healthy. My home is surrounded by mountains where I go running, biking, hiking, and exploring. I'm crazy about music and singing, especially with my family. I have the best family in the world. I'm a student at BYU, but I have no idea what my major will be. I'm so excited right now because in a couple months I will be serving as a full time missionary in Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine (which I still can't pronounce correctly).

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of Jesus Christ. I'm a Mormon because I feel his healing power and love. I came unto Christ because of my parents who taught me to rely on Him. However, the darkness of youthful selfishness in my life which brought darkness and fear and took away my joy. I need joy! Christ teaches us to look outward and serve others. I love how one Apostle quoted that a person all wrapped up in themself makes a pretty small package. By His grace, Christ restored that joy much more powerfully than it ever could have been before and he continues to fill my soul with peace. The closer I come unto him, the more clearly I see myself; my strengths and weaknesses. He gives me the power to move forward and improve when I am humble. Because of Him, I truly have found a constant, inner peace, and freedom which no outward influence can hinder or take away. To him I will forever be indebted and bound. I will always love and serve Him with my whole being. He lives. This is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

At the moment, I have the best calling in our church, I teach everyone the gospel as a full time missionary. I live my faith through service and loving all of God's children. I know that Christ has perfect love called charity and that this is why he was able to perform the atonement for my sins and shortcomings. I live my faith by always keeping him in my heart and striving every day to become more like my Savior.
