Hi I'm Christian

I grew up in California. I love to play soccer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Santa Barbara, California and have lived there all my life. I graduated from a local high school in 2013. My hobbies are playing soccer with my family and friends. Being able to be a part of a big family is something I am very grateful for, you always have someone to hang out with! Hiking is another one of my big hobbies. It is awesome to be able to put food and a blanket in a bag and just go off into nature.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I know that Joseph Smith was really a Prophet of God. I have read the Book of Mormon, which he translated by the gift and power of God. I have also prayed about it and received an answer that it was true. I was born into this church so I grew up always believing what our church teaches but one day I was forced to put these beliefs into action. As I acted on faith and continued reading and praying I was given comfort in my trials and that was the moment I gained a personal conviction that this church was different. I no longer believed but knew that Jesus Christ lives and He is the center of this church. I promise that everyone who reads the Book of Mormon and prays about its message can be given an answer that it is true.

How I live my faith

It is wonderful to have to opportunity to share my beliefs with others and help them come closer to Jesus Christ. Another way I live my faith is by reading the scriptures everyday, the Book of Mormon as well as the Bible. As I read everyday I feel peace enter into my heart and that helps me remember who I am, a Child of God.
