Hi I'm Schuyler

I grew up in a small town in Idaho. I'm a tall skinny redhead who loves to sing and eat ice cream. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student. I participate in the Men's choir as well as in the dance program. I absolutely love reading, fantasy and science fiction are my two genres of choice. I'm having a really hard time trying to decide what my major should be. Right now my decision is mechanical engineering, but I'm not sure if I'm going to stick with that or try something different. I consider myself to be a quiet, even somewhat shy person, who is more comfortable in small groups than large groups. I am an optimist, always looking (or at least trying to look) on the bright side. I have been fairly successful in school, even though I am a chronic procrastinator. That is one of my major flaws, I seem to always put things off until the last minute. I really enjoy making things with my hands. One time a couple of friends and I decided we wanted to make ties out of wood. That project was so fun! I like to be active, playing frisbee, running, or participating in pretty much any other sport. Except swimming, swimming isn't really my thing. One interesting thing about me is that I don't like facebook. I find it extremely boring, yet strangely addictive. So i avoid it. I'm just a happy guy making my way in life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because this is the true Gospel of Jesus Christ restored on the earth in this time. I am a Mormon because of the incredibly good feelings I get by following the teachings of the Gospel. I am a Mormon because I have prayed to know if this is the true Church of God and received an answer that it really is. I am a Mormon because the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I know this because I prayed about it, I sincerely asked God if what I was reading was true, and His answer to me was that it is. I am a Mormon because it makes sense. There is an answer to any question I ask. I am a Mormon because I love it! I am a Mormon because there were times in my life when the only comfort I could get came through the teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I know that my Father in Heaven loves me, and that through the teachings of the Church I will someday be able to live with Him again.

How I live my faith

I go to church every Sunday. I actually enjoy going because it makes me feel good inside. I usually sing in the Ward Choir, which is sometimes fun and always brings a good feeling. The hometeaching program is really good. When I diligently visit members of the ward I can feel an increase of love for them. I know that when I am visited I feel like people care about me and want to get to know me better. I want to live my life so that I can be a good example to my friends and family. I know I can do that by following Jesus Christ and the guidelines of the Gospel, which go hand in hand. It's important to me to remember Christ through the entire week, not just on Sundays. Always having Him in mind makes life so much easier and so much better.
