Hi I'm Spencer

I grew up in Portland, Oregon. I love to snowboard and dirt bike, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to snowboard and dirt bike. I have been snowboarding for 7 years and dirt biking for 8. I like to watch movies. I love to read. I also like to just chill with my friends. I just finished my first full year at BYU-Idaho and i'm off to go serve a two year mission in Argentina.

Why I am a Mormon

The reason why i'm a Mormon is because I prayed sincerely asking if it was true and the spirit bore testimony that this is the true Church. I know that I am happier because of the gospel. I know that I can find peace and happiness thru living the gospel principles and participating in the ordinances of the gospel. Having the gospel of Jesus Christ doesn't make me immune to trials and hardships. I just know that when I am having those trials and hardships that I have the Savior and my Heavenly Father to help me thru those hard times. I have felt that in my life and I don’t ever want to be without that. I am grateful to live in a time when we and our families have the fullness of the gospel restored. I am grateful for the Savior’s mission of love for us and for the words of life which He has given us. I pray that I might be able to be an instrument in His hands as I share the great news of the gospel. I know that Joseph Smith brought back the true Church to the earth. I know the Book of Mormon as well as the Bible to be the Word of God. I know that President Monson is a true Prophet of the Lord and that he recieves direct revelation that steers and guides the Church. I have a testimony of the Priesthood and the power it has. I also have a testimony of Christ and the Atonement.

How I live my faith

I try to be an example of my faith in how I live my life. I was the president of several youth groups (quorums) growing up. In high school I was a part of a special needs mutual in my area. We would be partnered up with someone and be their friend and go hang out with them every Thursday at a church. It was a really great experience and taught me a lot.
