Hi I'm Canyon Atwood

I was born in Cardston, Alberta, Canada, but I grew up in Midland, Texas. I enjoy sports, rock music, and movies. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Canada, but I grew up in Texas. I played on our schools varsity basketball team as a wing. I got my Eagle Scout award when I was fifteen and have been involved in helping out the younger scouts ever since. I enjoy sports, rock music, hanging out with my friends, and watching movies. I have recently received my mission call to the Lima, Peru North Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church like many of our youth do. My parents taught me the gospel, I attended all of my church meetings, new the gospel, but I just didn't really believe in what I was being taught. I took it upon myself to read the book of Mormon. After I had finished the book of Mormon I prayed to ask God if this gospel was true. I felt an indescribable feeling of peace, love, and happiness. I can testify without a doubt in my mind that this is the true gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I was a member of my young men's group which has taught me the values and the characteristics that I needed to develop to become more like Christ.
