About Me

Hi my name is Dylan I am the oldest of 3 and I've been a member since I was little. I enjoy doing things outdoors hiking, biking, camping etc. I play the guitar have been doing so for 4 years. I graduated high school, and seminary, and recieved my eagle scout award all in the same year!! I also enjoy hanging out with family and friends as well.Happy to say I will be serving a mission in Colorado!!

Why I am a Mormon

I've been in the church since I was a child and growing up in it the church wasn't easy for me as teenager I always complained about how I couldn't do this or that and always gave my mom a hard time but, that eventually changed. In the summer of my junior year of high school my two best friends and I were biking along the sidewalk of a major road and we were going pretty fast and after a while we were passing this parking lot and a truck was trying to turn out of it and it looked like he was going to let us pass but as soon as my friend tried to the truck pulled out and hit and ran him over and as soon as I saw that I was petrified so I prayed for help and my friend got up and walked out of the road and we called an ambulance to take him to the hospital as me and my other friend were heading to the hospital we decided to pray so that our friend could be all right. When we arrived we were relieved and amazed that our friend had minimal injury. That was one of the times that made me realize all the lord does for me and made me greatful to be a member of his true church.

How I live my faith

In my ward I teach 9 to 11 year olds on sundays and I enjoy it, but Iam also gratful for the oppurtunity to do so. Not only do I teach the kids but I try and live the things I teach them so I can try and set an example for them and in doing so it has made me greatful for the gosple.Currently Serving a mission in Colorado Springs and so far it's been amazing I LOVE IT!!! I really try to do all I can to help those around me.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Dylan
The Atonement of jesus christ has three parts. 1.) Jesus took upon himself all of our sins and bled from every pore in the garden of gethsemane. 2.) he was crucified and died 3.) he was ressurected three days after he was crucified. The Atonement was neccesary because, without that sacrifice that christ made on our behalf we would not be able to repent of our mistakes and we wouldn't be able to make it back to our father in heaven. As we strive to utilize Christ's Atonement and repent of our sins we will have burdens of shame and guilt lifted from us...and we will recieve strength to improve our lives and we will be more at peace and be more happy in our lives as well.
