Hi I'm Connor Schroeder

I was born and raised in Escondido, California. I enjoy everything outdoors from the beach to the mountains, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I was born into a family of seven with two brothers and two sisters, and I have a twin brother. I have a lot of different hobbies. I surf, rock climb, snowboard, and spearfish. I enjoy being outdoors and staying active, and I have a love for learning new things. I also enjoy working on cars and building and riding motorcycles. I love to smile and laugh with family and friends. I am currently serving a mission in the Philippines Manila Mission, and I plan on continuing my studies after my mission majoring in Biochemistry and then attending medical school to become a general surgeon. Another passion in my life is serving others. Throughout my life, it is a goal of mine to always be a help to others and never a hindrance.

Why I am a Mormon

Having grown up in this church. You may think that I never have had doubts or questions about the church. Having read the Bible, the Book of Mormon, and prayed to our Father in Heaven, I came to know that this church is the real and true church of our Savior. I have felt the cleansing power of the atonement of our Savior in my life, and I know that it is possible for everyone to feel the same. I can always be happy knowing that I am loved by my Father in Heaven. When life is hard, my faith in Jesus Christ, the love of my family and friends carries me through the hard times and makes everything alright. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I know that as long as I try to do the right thing, everything will always work out for the good of myself and others. I know that God is always good to those that live his commandments.Being able to reach out to others and help them is such a great blessing in my life. The love that others have for us, and most importantly the Savior, can carry us through any challenge. I know it, I love it, and I want to share it with everyone. I am currently serving a mission in the Philippines Manila Mission, teaching the Everlasting Gospel to everyone in Tagalog!
