Hi I'm Spencer Meade

I am a student at BYU-Idaho. I love baseball, golf, and running. I grew up in Texas. I love life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a student at BYU-Idaho, my major is Financial Economics. I grew up in Austin Texas and currently live in McKinney Texas. I love playing golf, baseball, skiing, running, and being outdoors. I am the oldest child of 4 in my family. I have 2 younger brothers and a younger sister. My parents both grew up in the LDS Church and Served missions in Santa Rosa California and Manila Philippines. As a family we like to travel together, attend sporting events, and just be together as a family. I recently returned from serving a 2 year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the Salt Lake area. I loved being able to teach others about Jesus Christ and his restored gospel. The joy and happiness that others found in His gospel was amazing to see!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have seen the fruits of my faith in great abundance in my life. As I live the commandments and strive to develop a personal relationship with my Savior I see blessings everyday in my life. I have read both the Bible and Book of Mormon several times and both teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I have prayed to know if the gospel was really restored to its fullness today and have received that answer several times through the feelings of the spirit. The gospel and the my faith in Christ are the driving forces of everything I do in my life. Being a Mormon is part of who I am and I have found so much joy in my faith. Life is so good!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving each day to be disciple of Christ and help others. I am the Ward Mission Leader in my Young Single Adult ward at BYU-Idaho. I have the opportunity to teach a class that men and women who are considering serving missions attend to help them make a decision if serving is right for them and also help them prepare to serve the Lord and others as a missionary. Missionary work is my passion so being able to be around my peers who are considering serving a mission brings me a lot of joy. I have a passion for the scriptures and I really enjoy studying them each day. Attending the temple is another great blessing in my life. I am so happy to have the knowledge that I can live with my family not only for this life but forever. I try to attend the temple as often as I can. I am able to feel the Holy Ghost very strongly when I go the the House of the Lord.
