Hi I'm Colton

I grew up in Orem Utah. I love sports and the outdoors. I'm currently a Missionary. I love being a Mormon.

About Me

I love to be outside. I am privileged to have a father that enjoys the outdoors. I have always felt a connection to God while among in His creations. I have been playing baseball, football and basketball for as long as I can remember. Baseball is one of my life-long loves. I love playing 3rd base. I am currently serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in California. I am the oldest of 3 kids. I have a younger brother and sister, and a mother and father. I love to make people happy, and I love to serve Jesus Christ and my Father in Heaven.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised into a strong Mormon family. I have been a Mormon all of my life. My parents did not force me to be Mormon, I came to know the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ was right for me by doing what Joseph Smith did. I went to the source of all knowledge and truth, God, and prayed to Him about it. The other reason I love Being a Mormon is because I always have opportunities to help and serve those around me. The happiness of God's children is very important to me, and I love making a positive difference in other peoples lives. I am blessed to be here on a mission because I have the opportunity everyday to go out into the world and invite other people to come unto Christ like I did, and enjoy many blessings from the Savior like I do. I am also a Mormon because I know that the Bible and the Book of Mormon are the word of God, and together contain the fullness of the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that Joseph Smith was a true Prophet of God and that he saw the Father and the Son. I know that like Joseph Smith, we have a living Prophet here in this current day, that is receiving counsel by God for the benefit of all God's children here on Earth. I know that the Priesthood has been restored on the Earth again by heavenly messengers, to Joseph Smith. I love the Lord and I love this Gospel. I love being a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Living my faith isn't just a Sunday deal. It is a constant effort to follow the perfect example that Christ set for me. How I live my faith is how I do everything. It is more than just simply reading the scriptures, praying and going to church, it is an everyday way of life. I live my faith by doing my best to live my life just like the Savior lived His. Lifting the hands that hang down, filling the hearts that lie empty, and encouraging the minds that seem hopeless. I love The Lord.
