Hi I'm Connor

I grew up in Riverton, UT. I love being active. I'm non-stop energy. I'm a missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am Connor. I am a LDS missionary. I report in January and will serve my Heavenly Father and my Savior, Jesus Christ for two years! I went to a semester of college at BYU and participated in the Air Force ROTC. I am VERY energetic and like to life to the fullest! You can't really find me sitting around because I LOVE to be constantly doing something and exploring. My favorite thing in the world is to make people laugh and smile. I love to see people when they are happy!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love God and Jesus Christ. They have always been there for me in times of trouble and times of joy. When I am fully invested in this gospel, I feel loved beyond comparison. My life is easier to go through and trials are much easier. They are easier because I am not facing them alone. I am facing them with Jesus Christ and also other members of this gospel. I love the friendships and bonds I have gained from this church. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. It shares many stories of great, ancient prophets who advise us through these latter days. I know if we just trust in the Lord and have faith in him, the Lord will be there for us always. Just as King Limhi told his people that; “if ye will turn to the Lord with full purpose of heart, and put your trust in him, and serve him with all diligence of mind, if ye do this, he will, according to his own will and pleasure, deliver you out of bondage.”

How I live my faith

I live my faith in many ways. The most obvious way as of now is serving a mission. Other ways are by serving others and sharing the joys of the gospel. I love being able to attend the temple and do work for my relatives and other individuals that have passed. Another way I live is simply acting in love towards others just as Christ did. When I allow the Lord to become such a great part of my life, it makes loving others so easy. I love to be able to like Ammon, who was a great servant of the Lord in the Book of Mormon. Ammon said: “Yea, I know that I am nothing; as to my strength I am weak; therefore I will not boast of myself, but I will boast of my God, for in his strength I can do all thing; yea, behold, many miracles we have wrought in this land, for which we will praise his name forever.” I am so excited to be able to serve the Lord because I know that he will strengthen me and allow me to boast of him. To proclaim the gospel unto the people of the world, that they can too feel his love. The power that is so strong it can change lives, allow families to become one, and put a smile on my face that doesn’t end.
