Hi I'm Wes

I grew up in Utah, and I've just graduated high school. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I have just graduated high school and am planning on serving a LDS mission. some of my favorite things to do are go skiing, boating, basketball, and hanging out with my friends. I am the oldest in my family of three kids and like to do things with my mom and dad. I have a job as a janitor at an elementary school where I work with my brother cleaning it up during the summer and maintaining it during the school year.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I am so thankful for all of the blessings this gospel brings to me. This church focuses on the family, and if I did not have my family helping and supporting me through the church, I would not have the relationship that I now share with my brothers and parents. I am also grateful for the community awareness that the church brings. It helps you to become involved and feel for the members in your ward to help share the burdens of one or more individuals. Most of all, i am a Mormon because it makes me happy. When I think about all of the bad things that i could have been involved in in my teenage years, I am so grateful that the gospel has helped me to follow the straight and narrow path to lead to my happiness.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church and doing everything that the church leaders ask me to do, while still following and living the commandments. During church I have had the opportunity to teach young children about the gospel with my father. One of the things i have been recently called to organize is an Aaronic Priesthood training camp. It is basically a camp for all high school juniors to help develop their testimony and faith in Christ, while still having fun with their friends. I was able to call a few of my peers to help to organize the camp and to figure out the activities and food that we would be having. I also am a home teacher where i visit two families in our neighborhood to make sure that they are doing well as a family.
