Hi I'm Austin Ray Bruce

I love The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints! Im a missionary, I love my calling, and Im a Mormon!

About Me

I was born and raised in Arizona until the 5th grade. My family moved to Utah and I have lived here ever since. My parents divorced while I was in 6th grade which has been a blessing in my life. Ive gained new family since they have remarried, and I am so grateful and thankful for the new people in my life. I enjoy all sports and outdoor activities.My favorite sports are Volleyball and Basketball. I also love the outdoors! I love archery, shooting, camping, and hunting. I also enjoy playing the piano, playing the drums, drawing, pottery, and reading. I plan on going to college after serving a mission to study anesthesiology. I am so blessed to have been raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It truly has blessed my life and kept me from making "not so smart" descisions. I have been blessed with family and friends (both member and non-member) that have made it easy for me growing up in the church. I have always loved the gospel but it wasnt until the last little bit of my life that I have really LOVED the gospel. I know the happiness that it brings myself and the happiness it can bring to people and I can not imagine someone going without it because I chose not to serve the Lord. The Gospel will only bring good into your life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I was born into the faith and as I grew older and learned more about the church, I came to know that this truly was God's church. I love everything about the gospel. I have come to find that by living the gospel, life is much easier and much happier. I am thankful for our saviors atoning sacrifice, so that we may be cleansed of our sins, and return to live with our Heavenly Father once again. I am a Mormon because it makes me happy.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in all that I do and say especially as a missionary and one who has been called to represent the Lord Jesus Christ. I excercise and live my faith by sincere prayer throughout the day, reading and studying the Book of Mormon, by serving the Lord as a missionary, by attending church, by listening to the words of the prophet, and by striving to grow closer to him everyday!
