Hi I'm Chris Glenn

I grew up in Danville, California. I attend BYU in Provo. I love to ski and play basketball. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi, my name is Chris. I am 18 and I love life. I graduated high school last June and I am stoked to be in my first semester at BYU. I love basketball and enjoyed playing in high school. I also enjoy performing as part of a choir and in plays. I am the oldest of 5 siblings and I've missed them so much while I've been at college. I hope to major in Business at BYU and I am preparing to serve a full time mission at the end of this summer.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it brings joy and happiness into my life. Not just fleeting excitement or passing fun, but a real and lasting peace of mind and joy that I have not found any where else. The church has blessed me in so many ways and has helped me understand my life and its purpose. The knowledge that I am a child of God and he loves me is something I think about on a daily basis. I know the church is true and I want everyone to experience the happiness that it has brought me.

How I live my faith

I love the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and the happiness it has brought into my life. As a young member of the church, it has been a great support system and place of refuge throughout my youth. I have made great friends and had so many great experiences as an active participant in the church's youth and Boy Scouting programs. My leaders and Sunday school teachers have become my greatest role models and mentors and I have truly been blessed by their influence in my life. I have also had chances to hold callings and positions of responsibility, teach lessons, and serve people through the church. Seeing something that I did or helped with, bless the lives of others has been a great way to live my faith and see it in action. The church made all these experiences possible.
