Hi I'm Morgan

My hometown was named after me, I snowboard, White on the outside, Japanese on the inside, I live for adventure and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to just feel alive. For some reason I find myself going on crazy adventures and running into amazing and dangerous things. I snowboard, I run, I play soccer. Worked as a lifeguard. Water, mountains, and just nature in general amaze me. There's nothing like climbing a high mountain and just looking down at what you climbed and see the beauty of the land round about. I aspire to travel the world. Currently I am serving a full time mission in Japan.

Why I am a Mormon

At first it was like most people. I was born in Utah so therefore an automatic Mormon. It was kind of like a bubble. I had no idea that there was a whole different world out there. As I traveled and associated with friends outside of my little bubble, I was able to question myself why I believe the things I do. It's crazy to think. Maybe living a life as a non-Mormon/Christian might be funner and easier, but living a life of faith and personal revelation that has led me to see, understand, and feel incomprehensive things has just been impossible to set side. True joy is only and always found through God, all gained through a journey of discovering light. That which is of God is light; and he that receiveth light, and continueth in God, receiveth more light; and that light groweth brighter and brighter until the perfect day. (D&C 50:24) That has helped me stand tall with conviction of the truth that I believe today and has blessed my life more than I can describe to you in words. My adventure in life of following these truths has led undeniable evidence that he lives and guides his children today. Logically it may not make sense but for some reason my heart is just screeming yeah! I have been stuck on cliffs and looked death right in the face with only God to trust and rely on. In his great love and mercy, I was delivered out of the hands of danger. God reveals his truth through his true restored church, through apostles and prophets; even down to us personally through our own calls out in faith for his hand to lead us to do what is right in life. That's how we all can know him. We can't decide who God is and what is acceptable for Him. We can't just follow the flow and trends of the world. We need to accept what God has for us. He restored his church by his own hand; Not by any council, break off, or thought of man, but by a small and simple prayer that changed the world and commenced His final dispensation of work until the second coming of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by action. Just recently I have gained a testimony based on the fact that a life of faith is a life of living on a level where you can see and act according to the will of God. Of course we are not going to know the will of God all the time, but as we seek for it, we can find. God is light and love. I believe that true joy is always found within faith. The foundation of faith is love. As our love is increased in God and in our fellow men we can do more acts of faith. The more acts of faith we perform, the more we can know and understand our purpose in life and become closer to and become more like our Heavenly Father. The main simple things of prayer and scripture study are something you just can't skip out on. They are essential to our spiritual welfare and eternal happiness. The amount of your faith can never be measured. It is a direction; A choice. You can chose to believe and act or sit in the dark. Although our first steps of faith may be in the dark, we find that the light will always follow. My testimony is based on that of experience. You'll never learn to swim if you never jump in the water. I choose to jump in, I choose to run, I choose to climb because I aspire to see what God can see in me and in others. It must be beautiful.... The mountains that God ask us to climb will help us see the perfectly magnificent view that awaits us; in ourselves, the world, and even the universe around us. I'm sure that there are many sights to behold beyond comprehension.
