About Me

Hi, I'm Owen I was born in Darlington, England. I am currently serving a full time mission for my church. I'm serving in the Canada Winnipeg Mission until 2015. I love music. My favorite artist and song writer of all time is Brandon Flowers. Most of his songs are rich in spiritual lyric and the music is just awesome! I literally feel on top of the world when I leave a Killers gig. I've seen the Killers live 3 times now. I met Brandon Flowers outside the Leeds 02 academy in October 2010. I love football or soccer to the Americans. I love my national team... ENGLAND! even though they make me cry tears of misery every for years when they compete in the world cup finals.

Why I am a Mormon

I live my faith by trying to apply the teachings of the gospel of Jesus Christ in my life. I know when i read of the Scriptures and of the Book of Mormon when i try my best to ponder It brings the spirit in reality!! to strengthen, uplift and to help me move forward daily.I love talking with my friends about the gospel, i guess the testimonies of the people i meet with help me live my faith grow. I've been blessed to grow up in the area i have to see many of my friends apply the gospel of Jesus Christ to their lives. I have seen lives change through the gospel. I've seen my own life change through the gospel. therefore, this is one the reasons i am currently serving a full time mission for my Church. To see people's lives change is incredible! To see people applying the atonement in their life is beautiful. To see people making covenants with the Lord, then seeing their lives being blessed in so many ways is amazing. I love my friends back at home and i really love the friends I've made so far on my mission, I have had so many amazing experiences with friends in the short time I've been out in the mission field. They have really helped me to live the gospel. I love Jesus Christ, I love his gospel, I am really enjoying preaching his gospel and seeing lives change as well as my own. I love my family and friends they are so important to me and they help me apply my faith.

How I live my faith

I am a Mormon because i have a testimony that the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints is true. I have seen the gospel of Jesus Christ bless the people in my life. Especially my family. When i was young i never really paid much interest in the gospel. My dad died when i was young and i guess when he died i knew deep down that it wasn't the end, So i guess from their i wanted to know more. As I've matured i have desired to know more about Jesus Christ and his gospel and through diligently studying, pondering and then most importantly living the teachings of the gospel. I have really seen it bless my life. When i act on the things the gospel teaches me i feel the spirit and most importantly i feel happiness, true happiness :). Each and everyday as i grow and learn more in the gospel and do the things i know to be right. It brings many blessings in my life, and my testimony of the gospel and of the Church strengthens. I love my Family, and i know through the Atonement of Jesus Christ everyone has the opportunity to live in true happiness with their families, The gospel also strengthens families and helps resolve challenges and problems within the family unit. I am truly grateful for the gospel in my life and the happiness it brings.
