About Me

I'm Canadian! I'm allergic to the cold, I'm the oldest of four, and I am serving as a full time missionary in Toronto, Canada!!

Why I am a Mormon

In my life I have always been told that one day I will no longer be able to rely on the testimonies of my parents and Church Leaders, but that someday I will reach a fork in the road, where I truly will have to make the decision of whether or not I personally believe this church is true. Although I had been told this throughout my life, I was never really concerned about my personal testimony until I entered high school. I started questioning basic doctrines like “does God really exist?” I was haunted by all these doubts and questions. I wanted to know so bad, that I would get really stressed. I started to look things up online, and check all these sources to try to gain a testimony logically but I was still sooo confused. I decided that if I wanted to know if this Church was true, then I must live by its precepts, for me this meant reading the Book of Mormon every day and praying to our Heavenly Father every day, while striving to keep the commandments. When I would read the Book of Mormon, I wouldn't read a lot but I made sure that I read a little bit each day. I didn't gain my testimony all at once. Due to my consistency of reading and praying every day, I was able to gain a testimony slowly. In fact I was surprised to realize that I indeed did have a testimony. I am a Mormon because I know and feel that this church is true. Being a Mormon has blessed my life tremendously, and it makes me happy. I love it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ. He's the best!! Living a life patterened after His example is the only way we can achieve true happiness. He loves everyone and desires all of us to come unto Him. I try to treat others in a way that he would
