Hi I'm Spencer

I'm from Houston Texas, and I'm a representative of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ

About Me

I am the youngest of 6, 3 older sisters and 2 older brothers and it goes girl boy, girl boy, girl boy. And naturally I get the best and the worst of the family. The best because, thankfully, I have had great examples of siblings going before me and people that I can trust and look up to but the worst because being the youngest its only natural that you get picked on. One of my hobbies, among hanging out with friends and playing sports and a couple video games, is singing jazz music and I really enjoy that. After my mission I hope to try out for "The Voice" and show people the talent and love that I have for music and the jazz standards in particular.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I was raised by 2 parents who are members. It used to be I went to church because I had to but as I have gotten older I have been able to see how much the gospel of Jesus Christ has blessed my life and others around me. It is not easy being a Mormon, a lot of times, especially living in Texas with members of other faiths, people seem to treat me a little differently but I think the thing that I need to remember is that I am a Mormon and I do have the fullness of the gospel and that by being an example and never diverting from the path that is set for us then we can be with our Father in Heaven again.

How I live my faith

Living my faith can be challenging at times, especially while i was attending college this past year, but I know that this is church has the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ and that by following the Commandments we can return to live with our Heavenly Father. Currently I am representing Jesus Christ, by serving a mission, for the next 2 years (sept. 2013-september 2015).

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Spencer
As with any Prophet both Latter-day and ones who are in the scriptures we look up to them for guidance from The Lord. Nevertheless we do not worship them, but rather the one whom they recieve guidance from, that being Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father. The Prophet speaks for and in behalf of them and we are expected to follow their direction and councel that we recieve from the Prophet, whom recieves it from God and Jesus Christ.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Spencer
The reasons that Missionaries Proselyte is because, well how else are people going to find out of the wonderfull message of the Restoration of the Gospel and one of Jesus Christ. Missionaries are sent out to invite all to "Come unto Christ, repent, and be baptized" (Moroni 10:32) and there is no better way to share the gospel than to go out and share it with all of God's Children.
