Hi I'm Wes

I love making people laugh. I love to rock climb and play other sports. I'm a huge BYU Cougar fan. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

So i just graduated high school last year. I love to do any sport. During high school i did sports like Wrestling, Soccer, and Cross Country. I love to rock climb with my dad. i have been doing it ever since i was little. I just love the mental aspect of it, because it is only your physical capabilities and overcoming your fear to do a move to complete the climb. it is such an emotional high when you reach the top and know that you can push through mental barriers to accomplish something! i am also going on a mission to Orlando Florida, Spanish speaking. After that i am going to college at BYU (of which i have been a fan my whole life). And i hope to major in Mechanical engineering/design.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because i love my family. Whenever i have a bad day at work or school i can come home and my family knows how to make me feel better. I can be my crazy self around them and not feel bad! And i really do not know where i would be without my mom! She is like my personal secretary! whenever i lose something or dont know how to do something she is always there for me! The plan of salvation allows us to be together with our families after we die. So it is good to know that we can live together forever with our heavenly father in heaven. and we can all get there together through the power of the atonement which allows us to repent and be cleansed of our sins. i love my savior Jesus Christ and the plan of salvation, and i know that he loves us back because he provided this way to be with who we love for time and all eternity. this gospel has brought me so much happiness in my life and i wouldn't be who i am today without it!

How I live my faith

I love this gospel! after my family moved when i was just 12 years old, i didn't know anybody. But by going to church i was able to meet all of the youth who held the same standards and beliefs as me and quickly made new friends. throughout my time in the young men's program i have served in many leadership callings. But I liked serving as the first councilor in our 16 year old age group the most. We had been having problems with participation and planning, so i helped plan a monthly schedule where we had certain activities on certain weeks. like a missionary week, service week, family history week, and a fun week! this improved attendance and relationships between the boys in our group and was a success. i also do lots of service in my callings. whenever i go hometeaching with my dad, we try to find ways to help out the families that we teach in any way possible! the church also encourages us young men to participate in the "Boy Scout" program. i have obtained my eagle scout which requires a lot of service to the community. i really love doing service because i know how much it means to the people that received it, and it makes me feel so much better inside helping others than i do when i think about myself all of the time.
