Hi I'm Ammon

In Utah was I born and raised. Oranges are my thing. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I just graduated from high school as the senior class president. It was pretty awesome to be sure! Not nearly as awesome as my job though. During the summer I work at a scout camp where I teach kids good values. Most importantly the value of some good clean fun! I have an amazing family with a loving mother and father and my four siblings. I am the oldest of these crazy kids and my three brothers and we have a great time. I love my family and I love my work! I am going to be serving a mission in San Jose California and I am so so so excited! After my mission i plan on going to school at Snow College my plan is to go to be a patent attorney.

Why I am a Mormon

This Gospel makes me happy. It brings pure joy in to my life. Some things in life make you feel good for a moment or two but it eventually fades away. The Gospel of Jesus Christ never fades away. It has always been a source for comfort and joy for me. It is not just a once a week way of life, it an every day all the time way of life. Its hard. Its kinda a hard way to life. I am not going to lie. On the other hand though, it is so worth it. I know that one day I can live with my family forever and that this life is not the end! I know that if I live worthily I can some day live with my family that has been sealed for time and all eternity. Jesus Christ lived and died for me and through him and the repentance process I can return to my Father in Heaven having peace in my life. To be able to die being completely at peace with myself and with God is a price far beyond any earthly treasure. I know for certain that our Father in Heaven loves each and every one of us and knows us far more than even we know. Joseph Smith was a prophet and he did restore the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The Book of Mormon is the word of God. We can communicate with, not just to, our Father in Heaven through prayer! This Gospel has brought me so many blessings in my life. It can be a very humbling experience to be a part of this gospel, but the blessings that come from it are so beautiful and so much designed to make people happy. I know this Church is true.

How I live my faith

Every night when I get on my knees I thank God for Jesus Christ and His atonement. This is the motivating factor behind what I do. I love my church! I go to church every Sunday and I love the people that I associate with when I am there. I go home teaching once a moth to two of my neighbors whom I love immensely! One of my favorite things about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the focus on family that it has. Every night as a family we read the scriptures then have family prayer. This pulls my family all together every evening and gives us time to laugh, smile, feel the spirit and just enjoy being together.
