Hi I'm Austin Biscotti

I grew up in California. I was born into the church along with my 5 brothers and sisters. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am an 18 year old that is preparing to serve a mission in 16 days for two years to Mexico. I'm excited to serve there for two years of my life and I know that I will be blessed for my service to the lord. My hobbies are playing basketball, wakeboarding, snowboarding, golfing, and dirt bike racing. I will apply for college when I return from my mission so that one day I can become a Chiropractor.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon since I got baptized at 8 years old and I have been an active member ever since. I continue to follow the gospel today because it gives me constant direction, purpose, love, comfort, and peace throughout my life to make me, in the long run, much happier. The things that I have learned in this gospels are eternally empowering and important to such an extent that they are out of this world, and I have a true testimony that everything I've learned about since I was a little boy are 100% true without a shadow of a doubt. I know the Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father love us unconditionally, no matter what, and that Jesus Christ did die on the cross for the Atonement of our sins and that he knows what we are going through, through that Atoning sacrifice. I know that this church is the true and restored church, I know that Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father appeared to Joseph Smith and that they did tell him to restore the one and only true church of Christ, and that he did so and that I am a proud member of it now. If I didn't know the things that I know today and have an unwaivering testimony about the truthfullness of this gospel, I wouldn't be the man I am today, and I wouldn't have the happiness I feel so often and the love and the holy spirit that guides me whenever I need direction or comfort. I leave this testimony in the name of Jesus Christ, even the Son of God, Amen.

How I live my faith

Throughout my life I've served in the Young Men's program in my church, such as helping people move, cleaning people's yards, doing a half marathon for service, and attending a morning church class before school called seminary during my high school years.
