Hi I'm Christian

I've lived on both coasts of the United States and I love basketball. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the second of 4 kids. I love to hang with my siblings cause their awesome. I'm in college attending the University of Brigham Young. As for hobbies and interests, I'm a huge sports fan. I'm always playing or watching some type of sport. My favorite sport is probably basketball. I'm also a big skier. If there's a big snow storm, I'll be up on a mountain, skiing to my heart's content. My favorite down time activity is ping pong. I love rallying back and forth with a friend or family member. I'm also into music. I'm constantly singing whether it be in a choir or in my shower to my self. I play a little piano as well and I'll try to sing and play at the same time.

Why I am a Mormon

Every since I can remember, I have gone to church. My parents were members of the church and they went and brought me with them. At church, I would go to classes and learn all about this gospel. To me it made sense, even from a very young age. I felt happy when going. I as grown older, everything since to make even more sense than before. I'm a Mormon for multiple reasons. First I have been able to meet many great new people throughout the church and establish relationships with them. In the church, I have been able to go on many outings and activities and those have been big parts of my life where I've enjoyed myself. Last and most important, I'm a Mormon because I know that the Mormon church is true. I have been able to establish a relationship with my Father in heaven as I pray, read the scriptures, attend church and obey his will. I feel great as I participate in the church and I feel happiness like none other knowing and leaning about this gospel. It gives me a purpose in life and makes me want to be the very best I can be so I can please my Heavenly Father and one day hopefully return to his presence in heaven again. I love the this gospel, the gospel of Jesus Christ and know it to be true.

How I live my faith

I attend church every week and enjoy going. I've had several different jobs or callings in the church where I have been able to help people around me. One of my favorite callings was teaching people my age about the gospel that we live. It was cool because as you teach you learn even more. I also enjoy visiting certain people in the community and ward just to check up on them and establish a relationship with them . I've been able to help these people in their times of need, and sometimes they even help me. I love going to other church activities such as barbecues, sports days, service projects for people and places around the community such as helping clean up around town, painting different buildings or side walks that need some touching up, or cleaning up and elderly persons yard who can't do it themselves. I also have been able to go on multiple outdoor outing with lots of the guys in my wards. I been hiking and camping all over and have seen some incredible sights.
