Hi I'm Zane

I grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah. I am a graduate student in civil engineering and I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

About Me

I love playing baseball and golf with friends and family. I am a master's student in civil engineering at the University of South Carolina. I served my mission in Singapore and Malaysia; I learned to speak Malay there. One thing that I have learned recently in my life is the importance of families and the support that is found within families. I have an amazing family. I love traveling the world and in doing so have learned from so many peoples of different cultures. In traveling I have met many amazing people, both members of the church and people who aren't members of the church. We are all God's children and he loves us individually. I have felt that as I have talked with many people.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have felt the love of the Savior as I have lived the Gospel. There have been times in my life when I have not been perfect in following all of God's commandments but there is a difference when we follow him. I am a Mormon because I know that Christ is the Savior of the world and was sent to the earth by our Father in Heaven to atone for our sins. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and that it was translated by Joseph Smith for us at this time in the world's history. I know that Joseph Smith saw God and Jesus Christ and was called to restore the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to the earth. I know these things as I have prayed on my own and through the Holy Ghost these truths have come to me.

How I live my faith

I serve as a secretary in my Stake. We have meetings most Tuesdays and Sundays. I have found that as I miss doing homework on Tuesday evenings the Lord makes up the difference in the time I have to finish all the things I need to. I also teach at the Missionary Training Center. I love being able to help current missionaries become the best teachers they can. I know that the Lord will bless us as we make him a priority in our lives and as we strive to serve all people around us.
