Hi I'm Hunter

I was born and raised in Saint George Utah. I love to run and play the drums. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I ran cross country and track (distance) in high school. Running has become a big part of my life and I've spent hours out on the streets of my home town running many different routes. Music is a big part of my life also. I play the drums and guitar. I've been in a band for a couple of years with some friends of mine and I love to spend time jamming with them. My friend and I hope to some day start our own school of rock. I love to play all sports (especially basketball, soccer, and ultimate frisbee). I like to camp, hike, swim, and enjoy solving puzzles. I also enjoy math, working hard, and spending time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are both Mormons and were married in the temple, so i've been a member my whole life. My parents have been loving and great examples to me and I've been very blessed to have grown up in such a loving home. I've always known that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true church, not just because my parents have taught me it was true, but I know by the spirit I feel every time I walk into one of its churches temples or meeting houses. I also know of its truthfulness when I live by the teachings of Christ, taught in the scriptures. When I do what is right the holy ghost testifies to me by the joy I feel inside that it is true, but when I do what is wrong I am just left feeling sorrow and empty inside. While living by the standards of this church I have always found joy in my life and I know that this is the true church.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by serving and loving others. A couple of serves projects I've done over the last couple of years are my Eagle Scout Project, helping neighbors with yard work, and hometeaching to members in my ward. For my Eagle Scout Project I gathered up used picture books from friends and relatives in my community and sent them to my cousin that was serving a LDS Mission in Madagascar at the time. When my cousin received the picture books he delivered them to children at an orphanage there. The kids there receive little to no education and really enjoyed the opportunity to learn a little english from the books they had received. I love assisting the older people in my neighborhood with yard work when ever I get the chance to. They seem to not only enjoy the help with things that they just aren't physically capable of doing anymore, but they also love the company of the visits every once in a while. Although they often try to pay me for my service, I seem to like the work a lot more when I try to decline their offers. Hometeaching is easily the most rewarding of these three. I love the feeling I receive when I go to homes of ward members and have the opportunity to teach them the gospel of Jesus Christ.
