Hi I'm Colton

I grew up in Arizona. I am a college student trying my best and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student studying Asian studies with Japanese emphasis. I am barely half way through my undergrad right now, still a long way to go. I love to read and my favorite author is Brandon Sanderson. I also like to talk and get to know people and I like some good sushi.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a member of the LDS church? It's the safest. I asked my friend once why he follows Jesus Christ. He replied simply, "because it's the safest." He's right. Out of all the things that I have seen and heard in my life, following Christ is the best way to go for me. By following Christ I know I can be happy. Life has been pretty rough lately, but it really doesn't matter in the long run. Everything will work out in the end. I am specifically a Mormon because I have prayed about this church and and its leaders. I also prayed about the Book of Mormon. I can't describe it very well in words, but I know in my heart with the great sense of peace, that this is the right path. That this is the right path to be able to follow Jesus all the way and be the best person that I can be.

How I live my faith

I don't do anything great or auspicious. I am a group leader for the members in my area. Every week I and a group of college age kids get together on Monday night for a "family night." We play games, eat food, and teach each other the gospel and share the things we struggle with. Then we can help anyone who may be in need. That is what I look out for the most. I want to be able to help someone when they are in need. That way I feel like I am serving others and that helps me to be happy. I like service and I try to follow Jesus' example and serve others and I have a great chance every week to do that. It may seem small but I like it. I like being out with people my age and having fun activities.
