Hi I'm Austin

I'm a student at BYU. I grew up around the world. I want to be a pilot or lawyer in the US Air Force. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I'm a college student and I've been a member of the LDS church my whole life. I have grown up all around the world because I'm from a military family. I like to think of myself as a leader and a friend to all those I meet. I love music, dancing, sports, working out, and art. I love my family and wouldn't know what to do if I didn't have them in my life. I'm going to be a pilot or a lawyer for the US Air Force one day. I want to have a family and travel all over the world in the Air Force but I just have to pass college first.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know this church to be true. I know Joseph Smith was a true latter-day prophet and that he translated the Book of Mormon off of the Gold Plates as God commanded him to. I know the true word of God is on this earth today and we are lucky enough to have access to that. I know the Book of Mormon to be the true work of prophets at the command of God. I testify that this church is the one true church and that it has a fullness of the gospel and I know that if I live by the covenants I have made that I will live with my family and Jesus Christ, our redeemer, and Heavenly Father once again for eternity.

How I live my faith

I live my faith with all of my heart, might, mind, and strength. I've been the chorister for my ward and I loved dealing with that music. I participated in Boy Scouts when I was younger and was able to get my Eagle Scout award while going through the Young Men program. I join the choir in any new area I move to and I love to serve those around me. I make sure I go home teaching every month and I take care of those I visit. I'm on the ward Mission Committee and I teach the mission prep class for my ward at BYU.
