Hi I'm Colton

I grew up in Syracuse Utah, I love sports, the outdoors, and music, I am currently in Canada, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love the outdoors including Hunting, Fishing, Camping, Hiking, ect. All those things are my passion. Without them I would not be me. I also enjoy sports such as tennis, baseball, and snowboarding. Music is a huge part of my life, without it I might just go crazy. I am currently learning to play the guitar and I played piano when I was younger but I did not stick with it... I can still play a few things but I wish I had stayed with it more. I am from a small town in Utah called Syracuse and I love it. I am not a big city type of person and small towns are just perfect for me. I love my family, friends, this church, and life in general!!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this church but that is most definitely not why I am a member. When I was younger I went to church and did everything else because my parents told me too but as I grew it wasn't so fun and even though I still did it, I did not have a good attitude about participating in church. I made choices in my life that were not the best but through the atonement of Jesus Christ, which I am so grateful for, I turned my life around. It started when I got a very challenging calling in the church. It really made me work hard and as I was striving to fulfill this calling I found greater happiness and joy than I ever had before and I know that came as a result of this Gospel. I see it even more now as I am out serving my mission, no matter how cold or hard it gets, I love every minute of it and I am so happy. That is what this Gospel can do for everyone, it brings joy to your life and your families life and it brings you closer together. And the way that you can know it is true is through experience. Test it out, read the Book of Mormon, attend church, and listen to the missionaries. I promise that as you do these things you will find that this is the true church. It worked for me, it can work for you too!!

How I live my faith

Currently I am living my faith by serving a full time mission in the Canada Edmonton Mission. As missionaries we devote two years of our lives to serve the Lord and put aside everything else. Before my mission I lived my faith by attending church, holding callings, and trying to live a Christ-like life.
