Hi I'm Connor

I am an Electrical Engineering major. I love Ultimate Frisbee and robots. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a student, having just completed my Freshman year of college. I was part of a FIRST Robotics team in high school, inspiring in me a love for engineering. I am majoring in Electrical Engineering, and hope to one day mentor my own Robotics team, inspiring others to become involved in the STEM fields. I am passionate about Ultimate Frisbee. I play weekly and love it. I ran cross country and track in high school, since they didn't take any coordination. Ultimate just came so naturally to me. I scrimmaged a few times with members of the extramural team for my university. I hope to be involved in an intramural team when I return to school. I will not be returning to school this fall. I am going on a 2 year mission for the LDS Church in Brazil. I am excited for this opportunity to share my knowledge and love of the gospel to all I come in contact with.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I know that this church is true and the gospel is Christ's gospel upon this earth. He loves me and He loves you too.

How I live my faith

I live my faith very simply, yet it provides a great stability in my life. Naturally, I attend church every Sunday, where I teach Sunday School to recent converts and those beginning to learn of my faith. I read the scriptures daily, both from the Book of Mormon and Bible, and frequently receive peace and comfort from the words therein. I am called as a Ward Missionary, so I help out the missionary work here at home before I go to Brazil for my full-time mission. I frequently go proselyting with the full-time missionaries in my ward, and enjoy every moment. I live my life to be an example of Christ, and hope that others see me in that light and notice something different and ask me about it. I also pray morning and night to my Heavenly Father, speaking with him, telling him what's on my mind and bothering me, and asking his assistance. This is the part I love most about the gospel, knowing that we have a loving Father in Heaven that you can speak to about anything at all, whether it's a small, almost selfish thing, up to life changing decisions like choosing which school to go to. He wants to hear it all and will help us out in whatever problems we go to him with, all in His time.
