Hi I'm Chris

I was born to dance. I play the drums. I'm all set. oh and i'm also a Mormon!

About Me

I have lived in Utah all my life. My mom taught me how to play the piano when I was young and picked up drum sticks when around 10 years old. Since then I haven't stopped drumming. I've competed in music and drumming competitions all over the state. Music is a huge part in my life and I believe it can touch us in ways nothing else can. I love camping, rock climbing, hiking, and spending time with my family. I'm serving in the New Hampshire Manchester Mission and I love being a missionary and serving my Savior and the amazing people of New England. My newly found motto's are Live Free or Die, Vermont Fo Lyfe, and Maine, The Way Life Should Be.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church by parents who helped me understand the importance of serving the Lord with all my heart. Although I was born into the church I had to gain my own testimony of the truthfulness of the gospel. My dad always asked me if I knew the church was true. I didn't really know what he meant and I thought I always knew until my dad asked "have you prayed about it?" He later invited me to do so and ask God if this was the true church. I received an answer. It wasn't some giant manifestation but it was a feeling of peace and happiness in my heart that the things I have been taught all my life are in fact true. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the true church that was restored by God through the Prophet Joesph Smith. There is nothing in this planet that gives me more satisfaction that knowing this, and being able to share it with others.

How I live my faith

I have always lived my faith by striving to be an example to others and sharing my beliefs with everyone. I think that's partly why I decided to take two years off and serve a mission. I truly believe that this gospel can help us become better and more like Jesus Christ. We can develop Christlike Attributes by reading and praying about the Book of Mormon. It really does have all the answers to the many questions of our souls. I love meeting new people and having the opportunity to be a full-time missionary. It's the best feeling in the world knowing that you are helping others come unto Christ and sharing a message that can change their lives FOREVER!
