I love muscle cars (69 ford mustang 429 boss is my favorite). I love food. I love staying in shape and working out. I love sports, Playing sports, watching sports.

I'm leaving to serve a mission on Oct 9th 13, In Salt Lake City! I'm so Excited and can't wait to leave! I'm a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? I am a Mormon because I know this church is true. The spirit has testified this to me time and time again. Once you have felt the spirit, especially at the temple, it is so strong and testifies that the gospel is true. That's basically all there is to it. I know Joseph Smith saw Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I know he was a prophet. I know Thomas S. Monson is a prophet who we receive revelation from today. I know the Book of Mormon is true. I know through prayer I can communicate with Heavenly Father everyday. I know if I repent each week and live righteously, I can one day make it back to and live with Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following the commandments and doctrine in the scriptures. By attending church every week. Basically just trying to live worthily and be the best I can be. I have served in the young men's presidency, and I'm an eagle scout. I am serving a mission In Salt Lake City and I'm loving every bit of it.
