Hi I'm Zach Anderson

I love my family. I love life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 22 years old. I am going to school to become a nurse, so I can help others feel happy and healthy. I love all types of music, especially screamo. I love doing things outdoors like surfing in the freezing cold ocean and hiking. I also love to speak the spanish and salsa dance. I just love doing fun things and being silly.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because following Christ's teachings make me happy. I grew up going to the mormon church because it is what my parents did and I liked to visit with my friends. I followed what I was taught (Christ's teachings) because that is what was expected of me and nothing bad ever came from following them. When I turned 19, I decided to serve a full time mission for the church so I could help others. I was called to serve in Argentina. It wasn't till I was on my mission that I realized the significance of the things I had heard growing up. I realized that I had never put thought into important questions like "Does God really exist?" "How is this church different from any other church?" "Why do I do what I do?". I started having questions, so I searched for answers. I wanted to know. I started to read and pray daily and I found answers. Since then, I have continued to learn about the teachings of Jesus Christ and I try to do my best to follow them. I am happier now than I have ever been before because of it. I know that Heavenly Father exists and loves us. I know that no matter what mistakes we have made, through Jesus Christ we can be clean again. I know that the Book of Mormon is real and brings us closer to Jesus Christ. This is his church lead by a living prophet and I love it.

How I live my faith

I go to church on Sundays. It is the best part of my week. I read the scriptures and pray daily to strength my relationship with my Heavenly Father. And, everyday I try my best to be Christ like by being positive and kind to others. This is what puts a smile on my face. I served a 2 year mission in Argentina teaching the people about Christ as well as doing service for them. It was amazing.
