Hi I'm Colten Roney

I grew up in Orange California. I've been playing the guitar for 13 years and I love adventure. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love adventure and exploring. There is so much that this life offers and I want to take advantage of it. I'm currently 19 about to go on a mission to Managua, Nicaragua. I graduated high school early and was able to squeeze in an AA degree in Communications before I leave.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church, but that didn't stop me from developing my own firm testimony of the truthfulness of this gospel. I would not be the same person without knowing the church. I know that my father in heaven lives and loves and cares for every single one of his children here on earth more than we can comprehend. I know that if we humble ourselves enough to let the spirit into our hearts it will testify without a doubt that this is the one and only true church with the fullness of the gospel.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through my every day actions. I always want to set an example to those I love and those I don't know. I am excited to serve a mission and teach the people of Nicaragua for two years.

What is the priesthood?

Colten Roney
The priesthood is the authority to act in God’s name. The same priesthood authority that existed in the original Church established by Jesus Christ exists in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints today. The Church is directed and led through this authority. All male members of the Church who are prepared receive the priesthood in order to help lead the Church and serve Heavenly Father’s children. A man with the priesthood might serve in some of the following ways: Leading congregations of the Church Performing the ordinances of the Church, such as baptism Blessing those who are sick God expects those who hold this sacred priesthood authority to follow the example of Jesus Christ and serve with love, gentleness, and kindness.
