Hi I'm Seth

I'm an advertising student at BYU in Provo. I believe firmly in the creation of ridiculously good movies. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married to the most wonderful woman in the whole entire world. And fortunately for her, I get to be married to her for time and all eternity.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I read and prayed about whether or not The Book of Mormon is true. God said "yes."

How I live my faith

People assume that since we believe in prophets and apostles we are mindless drones who do their bidding. This is completely untrue, and I like to think especially for me. I live every aspect of my faith, but I do it because I have found for myself this faith is true. I have experienced the peace of the Holy Ghost as I prayed about the Book of Mormon, the existence of prophets, and countless other teachings. Yes, we have prophets and apostles. But that doesn't negate personal revelation. We can pray to God for answers over the things we have been taught by our church leaders. I live my faith faithfully because of the answers I have received.

To what do you attribute the growth of the Church?

Having served as a missionary for the Church, I saw firsthand the miracles that occur when people with open hearts are searching for the answers to life that have eluded them. When people search for answers and are willing to accept them when they come, the Lord will take them by the hand and lead them. I believe the Church has grown because people are searching for these answers and God is answering their faithful prayers. Show more Show less
