Hi I'm Hunter Moseley

I was born in Utah, but have lived part of my life in Boston, Massachusetts. I love all forms of sports. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

For now, my hobbies include playing sports and reading a good book. I'm headed out on my mission to Roseville, California for the next two years. When I return, my plan is to attend college! I hope to go to medical school and become an anaesthesiologist. Eventually, I hope to get married and have a family. I just graduated from high school, and I have been having one last, fun, summer with my friends before I head out for two years to preach the gospel!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know with absolute certainty that this Church is true. I have felt the spirit and I have seen the happines that living this gospel can bring to my life and others around me. I have felt the happines of following the commandments and I have recieved more blessings than I could imagine. Living in Utah, I am blessed to have access to some of the most beautiful mountains in the world. When I was younger, I used to Alpine Ski Race for a local ski resort. I loved the sport with all my heart, and I was very good at it. The issue was that every race was over the weekend, and if you miss one day then you are disqualifed from the other day. If you place high in enough races, then you will earn enough points to make it to the Junior Olympics. This is very hard to do and missing a Sunday race or a day of training was not an option. Once winter hit, church became a second priority and I began to attend less and less. At the age of 12, I missed almost every Sunday session of church that winter. I began to feel myself drawing away from Christ, I felt I was losing the spirit. My constant companion was gone, and I no longer felt as though I had his love. I became deeply saddened, feeling as if the Lord had forgotten me. I began to question the Lord and his church. A dear friend of mine was about to leave on his mission, and I asked him how he could be so certain that what he was doing was right. He replied that when he did what the Lord commanded that he could feel the Lord's love so strongly that there was no way it couldn't be right. Taking a leap of faith I followed my friend and quit ski racing to follow the Lord. Since that day I have felt unimaginable Love and strength from him. Often times I question if I made the right decision, but I know that I need to show humility and follow his plan, and by doing this he has always comforted me, and I know that I have made the correct decison. This is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I home teach two wonderful families in my ward. They both are young families with three kids all under the age of ten. I serve as the secretary in the Priest's Quorum, and do my best to attend all young men activities that we plan. As I will be heading out on my mission soon, the adults in my ward seek me out for help with ward activites and being a leader to the youth. I often times find myself planning with the Young Men and Young Women leaders, and helping with their activities; such as girl's camp and planing ward temple days.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Hunter Moseley
Of course not! Some of my best friends aren't Mormon, and I help them out all the time. We will always be there to help anyone who needs our help out. We often have ward service days where all we focus on are serving people in our community who aren't Mormon. Often times it may seem that we only help each other out, but that's not the case. Being Mormon doesn't automatically make you best friends with someone, but often times people who are in the same wards became very close. They become more like family than friends, and you and and everyone in the ward will always have their back. That being said, we try to extend a courteous hand to anyone and everyone who could need our help. Show more Show less
