Hi I'm Clint Gingrich

I grew up in California. I'm a college student and athlete. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the youngest of four children. I was born and raised in southern California. I have played sports all of my life. I currently attend Brigham Young University. I enjoy being active and spending time with family. I value humor, love to travel and have be adventurous, and I do my best to live a stress-free life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because this church makes me happy and it has the power to do the same for others. It contains the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ. This knowledge allows me to know that God has a specific plan for each of us. He sent his son, Jesus Christ, to die for us. This sacrifice conquered physical and spiritual death and enabled us to become clean and return to live with our Heavenly Father. For a period of time this fullness of the gospel was lost. It was restored through Joseph Smith under the direction of the Lord and Heavenly messengers. The Book of Mormon and Bible testify of Christ and his ministry. They are truly the word of God. God still communicates to His people through modern prophets. Personal revelation can be received through prayer. I know that the power of God is on the earth today. This power and the truthfulness of the gospel are found in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter- day Saints.

How I live my faith

I am an active member of the church. I will be serving as a full time missionary from July 2013 to July of 2015 in Vitoria Brazil. I have been involved with church programs throughout my youth and have spent time as a leader and teacher over various youth groups.
