Hi I'm Austin Christensen

I grew up in Idaho Falls, I love sports, I am a missionary in the Italy Milan Mission and I am a Mormon

About Me

I live for sports. Basketball, baseball, football.. it is all great. I love being outdoors, doing things like snowboarding, hiking, backpacking, camping, fishing, and anything else outside. I am a student at BYU studying Exercise Science but I took a break to serve a mission. I am serving in Italy Milan and having the time of my life. I have the greatest family in the world.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a member of this church is the greatest blessing I could have ever asked for. I know that true joy comes in following the commandments of our Heavenly Father. I was blessed to be born into a very religious family and they mean the world to me. I have seen the blessings of unity in the family that come from a constant effort to live these commandments. I know that families can be together forever and am so thankful for that and the restored priesthood power that makes that possible.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving each day to become a better disciple of Jesus Christ. I know that we can change and become the people that our Heavenly Father would like us to be. It is quite a process but we can find joy along the way. I am serving a full-time mission in Italy and it is great to be able to see this change happen in the lives of the people everyday.
