Hi I'm Miles Anthony Sorensen

I grew up in Kansas. I love studying the beautiful phenomenon that is our universe, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

My favorite time of the day is when my whole family is at home and we all share our stories of our experiences we had while we were apart. Right now, I'm serving as a missionary in England for two years, and even in the first week of my mission, my testimony has been strengthened because of all the wonderful experiences (good and bad) that I've had. When I get home, I plan on going into the field of physics, and then I will pursue for a career in a research department. Some hobbies of mine include playing video games with my brother, watching educational television and cartoons, reading books (fiction and non-fiction), and listening to Spanish guitar or Jazz while eating a turkey sandwich with a side of chips and a tall glass of pink lemonade.

Why I am a Mormon

My mother and father were both members when they got married, and so I was born into the Church and baptised at eight years old. Many of my friends were not members of the church, and they asked me many questions, and some of them were very difficult to answer. After many months of study and prayer, I learned that this was something that helped me so much in different parts of my life, like school, work, social life, etcetera, and made me a much happier person. Some might say that I feel this way just because I grew up in the church. Truth is, you can't and won't know until you give it a try. I'm a Mormon because it's a constant learning path for me, it strengthens my perception of life, and it gives greater understanding than anything else.

How I live my faith

My favorite part about the church is how much I am able to learn. Throughout the day, I always seek to learn new truth from wherever it's found. If the only thing we can take with us when we die is what's in our minds, then why not try and grab as much knowledge and wisdom as you can? I strife to make myself the best person I can be so that some day I can have a family of my own, and with my wife raise them to be the best they can. I want others to know that they're cared about by someone. Nobody deserves hatred or bitterness toward them, so I do my best to give people a smile and a slap on the back when I can.
