Hi I'm Porter

I grew up in the Salt Lake Valley. I believe in optimism. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I believe that life is full of good things. I love what life has to offer, from seeing nature, to dinking around on a Piano. My favorite subjects in school were History and English, but I love learning, so it is hard to narrow it down. I love languages, studying them fascinates me, I love learning how they work, and I want to learn as many as possible. I also love music. I have never played any instruments, but I like to play around with them in my spare time. I love learning, and I am always on the lookout for things that can improve my mind and body. I love all sorts of strategy games. I like analyzing, and solving problems, and simply being content with life.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that this Church is true. It is not the only good Church, but it is the only church on the earth today that has the fullness of the gospel. I gained this knowledge by reading the Book of Mormon, and following the counsels of the prophets. This knowledge brings me peace and joy, and adds purpose and fulfillment to my life.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a full-time mission for the Church, but previous to that, I was the First assistant in our Young Men's group. We do all sorts of service, everything from improving houses to cleaning yards. Service is very fulfilling, and helps us draw closer to Christ. That is one reason I am serving a mission for the Lord. Mormon missionaries give up 2 years of their lives to serve. We are not paid, or reimbursed physically for the work we do, but the blessings we receive are priceless.
