Hi I'm Xavier Stilson

I grew up in Kearns UT then in the Summer between 8th and 9th grade our family moved to Layton, UT.

About Me

I am 6' 8" and sports are my life! I have played basketball and football the first year I could. I went to Layton High school and played both sports. When I graduated I contacted the football coaches up at Weber State University and they invited me onto the team. I play/played both right and left offensive tackle and love playing on the line. I played there for a semester and got my general credits out of the way and red shirted on the 2012 team. At the end of the season I tore the labrum and rotator cuff in my left shoulder which caused me to have surgery. I turned in my Mission papers the week after the mission age was changed but have had to wait 6 long months until my MTC date. I was called to the Brazil Vitoria mission and praying that my visa can get through.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the gospel but my parents have always given me a choice to stay with the church because they believe in my agency. I love this religion and it is the only religion that has made sense to me.

How I live my faith

I have been deacons and teachers quorum president as well as the 1st and 2nd assistant in the priest quorum. I don't have any callings and when our ward split in January I wasn't given hometeaching families. However I have gone many times with the missionaries that are serving in Layton and have loved every minute of it.
