Hi I'm Wendell Smith

I grew up in Sacramento California. I love riding motorcycles, riding bikes, and flying planes, and i'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in California. I have had a love for anything that has wheels for my entire life, I started riding bicycles at two and a half years old and haven't been able to stop riding since then. Another passion that I have had since I was 7 years old is motorcycle riding. I started out with dirt bikes, but expanded my riding out to street about two years ago. I absolutely love the freedom that you can feel by just getting out in the open air and feeling that wind in your face. It's absolutely intoxicating for me. There is nothing like going down a twisty road at 40 miles an hour or trying to climb the gnarliest steepest hill you can find out dirt riding and just pinning it and trying to go as far up it as you can go! One of my true passions in life is Aviation. I love flying and working on aircraft and pretty much anything else that involves aircraft. I graduated high school at 15 1/2 and went into college immediately following my graduation. I went to college for two years and received my mechanics privileges from the FAA or Federal Aviation Administration. My goal is to finish school and receive a bachelors degree in Aviation Management and fly for the National Guard in the end.

Why I am a Mormon

More important than any goals I have in this life is my faith. The Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is in every part of my being. I love this gospel with my whole heart, and have found out for myself that it is true through prayer to my Heavenly Father and him telling me through the Holy Ghost that it is true just like you can. This is the restored gospel of Jesus Christ, and that after centuries of it being lost, Jesus Christ once again established his church through a boy whom he called to be a prophet. His name was Joseph Smith. Joseph Smith stayed faithful to his calling as a Prophet and in the the prime of his life was martyred for doing nothing but being a faithful servant to our Savior. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints is true. I know it, I live it, I love it.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a two year mission for the Church Of Jesus Christ because I feel so strongly that everybody needs the wonderful blessings that this gospel has to offer.
