Hi I'm Peter Pearson

I was born and raised in Utah. I love having fun. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I was born and raised in Utah. I love to go running and play sports. I like photography. I try to find the next great thing to capture on camera. I come from a big family of 9 kids. I love hiking. I feel very close to my maker when I am out in nature and especially when I am at a high peak. When I am able to see the large valleys and majestic mountains I am reassured that God is in control of everything and I do not need to worry. I like to help others. I gained this interest after helping myself. I used to be really over weight. I was able to loose the weight and because of doing that I was am a much happier person. So when I see others make progress with whatever it may be I am happy for them. I have found that God truly does answer our prayers. He loves us and wants to answer our prayers. I have also learned that no answer is found without doing my part of looking for it.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family that are all members. I was baptized when I was 8. I went through the motions. Then later on in life I found myself in a very dark place. I wasn't happy with anything. I was actually very angry at a lot of things. I started to question if there was a God. I kept myself this way for years. I didn't try to get out until I was able to use the healing powers of the atonement. The more I recognized that I did have a Savior the more I believed in him. I have come along way since then. Because I know the my Heavenly Father loves me and is always waiting to help me, I know that nothing is impossible. The atonement saved my life. And this is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing what makes me happy. And what makes me happy is seeing other people smile. I love teach others about my faith. I love to serve others. I try to be an example to others. As I read the scriptures I look for characters that I want to be like and I read about how they live their lives. I have learned that if you do things that invite the spirit then you can have true joy and happiness. You never know how much you might affect someone. So I try to make sure that I leave a positive influence wherever I go. Life is full of challenges, but as I have used the Atonement and searched for happiness I have been able to overcome my challenges and trials.
