Hi I'm Casey Christiansen

I grew up in Idaho. I love sports. I am the baby of a family of 5 kids. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love sports. I love playing them and I love watching them. I love playing baseball. I have always grown up playing ever since I was a little kid. I had the dream of playing in college and professionally when I was a little kid. Not all dreams come true but mine did for playing college baseball. I was blessed with that opportunity that I'm grateful for. I love my family. There's not much better than just hanging out with your siblings. I really enjoy just being around them. Whether it be playing golf or video games, or have a whiffle ball home run derby I've had the best times of my life with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because this church has helped me follow the Savior. I feel the Spirit of the Lord when I attend church. I feel the Spirit when I read from the Bible and the Book of Mormon. I have felt the love of the Savior as I have listened to modern day Apostles and Prophets. I have prayed and felt the confirming witness from God that this is the Lord's church. That He still speaks to us. That He will never leave us alone, and that He loved us enough to send His own Son into the world to allow us to return to live with Him again. And that He called Joseph Smith to be a prophet. That he was an instrument in His hands. I know that the Atonement of our Savior is real. I have felt the peace that comes from repentance and being forgiven through the Grace of our Savior.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by applying the teachings of the Savior. It's good to study about and recognize the Savior, it is better though to follow those principles we study and believe in the Lord enough to follow Him. I've found the best way I can live my faith is by being a blessing in someone else's life. By doing something for others to make their lives easier. By truly loving the Lord and loving your neighbor as yourself. When you do that, you will want to help them, just as the Savior helped people. The way for me to live my faith is by making it life. By making the principles of the Gospel a part of who I am.
