Hi I'm Creighton

I grew up in Idaho. I play sports and I love to travel and visit new places. I'm a certified scuba diver. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have grown up in Idaho but have recently been called to serve a mission in Chicago! I have played sports all my life and I love watching and playing tennis, basketball, golf, and football. In the summer time you'll find me on the river boating with my family or white water rafting. I love to travel, especially to places where my dad and I can scuba dive and explore life underwater. My best friend is my seven year old brother. Without my family I wouldn't be where I am today.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been raised in the Church and it wasn't until a year and a half ago when I realized why I am a Mormon. As we all experience, I had made decisions in my life that distanced myself from my Heavenly Father. During this period in my life I would often feel like I was missing something. It took me awhile to figure out that it was God's love that I had blocked myself from feeling. I know that my Heavenly Father still loved me but I wasn't doing the things that would let me feel His love and receive the blessings he had in-store for me. I'm so grateful for a Heavenly Father that loves you and me so much that he gives us an opportunity to change and grow through the Atonement of His son, Jesus Christ. Without the atonement there would be no way back to live with God. My testimony has grown significantly by letting the atonement change me and my life and take it in the direction that God needs it to go. I have prayed and asked God himself if this church is true, and it is. Through prayer we are able to know the truthfulness of all things. The Book of Mormon is true and bares witness that Christ is the Son of God and that he lives. That through His name and Gospel we can all be able to live with God again. I know that the love and happiness I feel is not just for me to enjoy, but for everyone. I'm so grateful I can share this Gospel as I serve my mission in Chicago. I know this is the true church, that it is Christ's church. I am a Mormon because God has born testimony of it to me through His spirit.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church every Sunday and going to Family Home Evenings on Mondays! I am a ward missionary and I focus on helping people learn more about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I teach a sunday school class and help other develop and strengthen their testimonies on our Savior!
