Hi I'm Zachary

I grew up in Idaho, and now I'm on a mission in California. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Twin Falls, Idaho. But I've been around the country because my dad was a traveling nurse. We've lived in Utah, Arizona, California, Rhode Island, and North Carolina. I've had the chance to get to know lots of people and different things because if it. I love to yo-yo, run, juggle, play the piano, and spend time with my family. Now I'm serving in the California, Arcadia mission. I Love to talk to people and find out what they like to do, and ask them about what they believe in. I'm happy that I have this opportunity to serve.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a member, so I've kind of always known it was true. But, one day I really wanted to know for myself if it was true. I wanted to know. So, I prayed, I read my scriptures, I listened to how I felt, and I got my answer. The answer that I got was "You know that it is true. You have always known." After receiving that witness I have tried my best to do what is right to live up to the promises that I have made. I still have lots of weaknesses and short comings but I know that through the Atonement of Christ those weaknesses can become strengths, and those short comings can be forgiven. This church is the True Church of Jesus Christ! I know that for myself! It is true! I know that Joseph Smith is a true prophet of God. The Book of Mormon is true, it is the word of God, and it goes hand in hand with the Bible. I know that I can be forgiven of my sins: past, present, and future. I know that I will one day be able to see my Father in Heaven again and that I will live with him forever. And I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by getting up each morning and studying the scriptures, so can learn what My Heavenly Father would have me do, and then going out and doing it. I love to find opportunities to serve people. I try to help people find happiness by going out and teaching them the gospel, and inviting them to change so they can be truly happy.

Mormons believe Jesus Christ is their Savior. Why do we need a Savior?

God says that no unclean thing can enter into his kingdom, and when we sin we become dirty. That's why Jesus Christ came. He came to make it passable for us to repent and be washed of our sins. We are washed of our sins when we accept his Atonement. That is we confess our sins to God and anyone else that has been hurt by our sin. We ask for forgiveness. We repair the damage done if possible. We forsake our sins. That is, we stop doing them and don't look back on them. Show more Show less
