Hi I'm Spencer

I'm an honor roll student, a piano player, an Eagle Scout, and a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

About Me

I'm the oldest of five children and I've left the family and friends that I to live among the Mexican people for two years while I serve as a missionary for the Church in the Guadalajara East Mexico mission. I'm an Eagle Scout and an honor roll student. I play the piano well enough to use some church hymns for my mission. I love reading about history and governments but I also like math. I love my family, but I'm honored to be able to serve as a missionary during this time of my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church but like everyone else I've had to learn for myself that it is true. My own beliefs have been formed by study and prayer and just noticing the blessings in my life when I am living as I should.

How I live my faith

I try to serve wherever and whenever I'm asked. That has meant leading in youth groups at church, but it has also meant mowing lawns, shoveling walks, and volunteering at a local center for the disabled. I try to read the scriptures and more importantly I try to understand what the past prophets are trying to tell me. I wonder in every chapter of scripture, "What does God want me to learn from this?"

What do Mormons believe about family?

Families are the focal point of organization, both in society and in the church. Our families greatly influence us in the choices that we make, and ultimately in the path we take in our life. God's plan for families was that we were to go throughout this life together in families and that we would all be united after death if the family members kept their covenants. Show more Show less
