Hi I'm Zachary Barnes

I'm from Centerville Utah, currently a college student in paralegal studies, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am from Centerville Utah and currently live in the Salt Lake area. I am a college student in paralegal studies and I aspire to attend law school. I served a mission in the Kennewick Washington mission from 2013-2015 and loved it! I enjoy any activity outdoors such as snowboarding, hiking, boating, camping, and golfing. I love my family and they are my number one. I try to enjoy all aspects of my life and if you aren't having fun you are doing it wrong!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it brings true happiness. The world offers us an array of different things to try to make us happy but none of them work. This is where you can find true happiness! I am also a Mormon because I know that through the blessings of the Gospel my family will be strengthened here in this life and we will be together in the next life. It makes me happy and brings me peace, it doesn't get much better than that!

How I live my faith

I have lived my faith by striving to be an example to others. President Gordon B. Hinckley said "the greatest tract we will every carry out will be the goodness of our own lives and examples." In every situation we are in throughout life we need to be the person others can look to for for an example of Christ. We will never be perfect but we all need to try, and that is all Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ ask of us!
