Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church by my family. Since I was a baby I have been going to church and have gotten to know my savior more and more. I was not yet converted to the church yet though. I knew what was right and believed in what I was being taught but I never found out for myself. I found out for myself during the summer in 2012. Me and a group of members of my church planned on going to Bear lake by mountain biking there. It would take from Monday morning to Wednesday night. We there began our Journey of a 135 mile bike trip. The first day wan't as hard as the other two since it was mostly on asphalt and wasn't too hard or hot. On the second day however, we were on our hardest leg of the trip where the support vehicles were unable to follow. It was the hottest day and the climb we were on that day seemed to take an eternity. As we rode up the mountain we all ran out of water and were in dire need of more because of our exhaustion. We all knew that there was a water spicket at the top of the mountain and we needed it desperately. I was second to arrive at the spicket soon after the first, water never tasted so good. It wasn't too much longer after a rest I started to think of the others behind us. I knew that they were out of water and that I had to go back. I was tired though and did not want to go back. I received this feeling though that I should go anyway. Taking what water I could I rode back to help the others in our group. I found them a while down on the trail together, sore, thirsty and exhausted. I gave them all water and we continued on to the water that was at the top. Little did I know that the group behind me prayed to God for help because they knew that they were in trouble. I was the answer to their prayer. I have nothing more but to thank the savior for using me as an instrument in his hands to help my friends and leaders. This experience taught me that God answers us and that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints was true.

How I live my faith

I am an eagle scout. We planned many camp outs and gained a lot of memories and friendships in the places we visited. On these camps we would always have prayer or scripture study that would help us to learn more about the gospel. I remember many times where we all would gather food from our neighborhood to give to the Utah food bank to help others in need. As I grew older my dad and I would go out to members and non members alike. This was so we could visit and get to know them to see how they were doing and to see what we could do for them. I try to do my best in all I do to help everyone who is in need, no matter what the circumstances. I think the biggest thing that I have done is that I show kindness to everyone I meet. It doesn't really matter what they believe or what they have done. I try to do what Jesus Christ would do and continually strive to be the best example for others in my life. I am now serving a LDS mission in Canada Calgary.
