Hi I'm Britton Edward Schow

I'm a Mormon

About Me

My name is Britton. I've lived in the state of Idaho in the United States of America for almost my entire life. I really enjoy spending time outdoors. I like to fish, hike, and play sports. I also enjoy playing the guitar and the piano. Most of all I love spending time with my family and friends. They are a great support to me and I cherish the time that I have with them. However, I am taking a break from these things because I am currently serving a mission in the Mexico, Mexico City South Mission. I am going to devote 2 years to serve the people in Mexico. I have seen the gospel of Jesus Christ bless the lives of many people here, and I am very greatful for the opportunity that I have to be here at this time.

Why I am a Mormon

Both of my parents are members of the LDS church so I always attended church with them as I grew up. As I reached my teenage years I didn't always want to attend church, but I continued to attend anyway. I wasn't really sure that it was true, and I stared to doubt. However, when I reached the age of 20 I decided that I wanted to know for myself that the church is true. I read the Book of Mormon and prayed about it, and I made the decision that I wanted to go on a mission. I can't say that I know without a doubt that this church is true, but I strongly believe that it is. I have had many spiritual experiences that have helped me to come to this conclusion. I have also experienced so much joy and happiness in my life from living this gospel. I have faith in Jesus Christ. I know that he has changed my life and that he can change the life of anyone that can come to him. I believe that this church is the one true church on the earth today, and that it is led my a living prophet who recieves inspiration for the church from God. I also know that we can recieve revelation and guidance for our own lives from God.

How I live my faith

Right now I am serving as a full-time missionary for the church. This means that every day for the next two years I will be doing everything possible to share the gospel with others. As missionaries, we try to live our faith by example. We try to do our best to represent the savior Jesus Christ in every way possible. We provide service for others at every opportunity. We share our testimonies or experiences with everyone that will listen. We visit people in thier homes and teach them about Jesus Christ and how our families can be blessed by living according to his teachings. We also help people to make sacred covenants or promises with God through ordinances like baptism.
