Hi I'm Mason

I'm a Coloradoan and Eagle Scout. I love the outdoors, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I've grown up in Colorado, Utah, New Jersey and Arizona and I love the outdoors! When I was 14 I had a brain surgery for Chiari Malformation with a Syrinx. This left me with scoliosis and an inability to run or jump. The years I slent playing on soccer teams were now just a part of my past. Although my life is now limited in many ways, Heavenly Father loves me, and has helped me find other sports and activities that I may enjoy. I enjoy backpacking, rock climbing, mountain biking, kayaking, scuba diving, skiing and more! I left on a two-year mission for this church in September 2016, and came home after three weeks, because I couldn't stay awake. After months of testing, I was diagnosed with Idiopathic Hypersomnia, a sleeping disorder that causes me to sleep in extreme excess. With medication, I am ready to leave again, and this time I will stay awake!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have prayed to know if this is God's true church, and I have received an answer. Heavenly Father answered me through the Holy Ghost, a member of the Godhead. I know it was the Holy Ghost, because it was exactly how the scriptures described it. A burning in your bosom, and a still small voice. I know that God loves His children, and the teachings, scripture, prophets, and all that He has given us repeat that same message. God loves everyone.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving in my community, and loving those around me. I am leaving soon to serve as a Full-time Missionary! I am assigned to the Chicago area, and am very excited to meet, love, and serve the people there!
