Hi I'm Austin

I love playing and watching sports. I'm into film-making and music. I'm currently serving as a full-time missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Salt Lake City, and I absolutely love it. I'm the oldest of 6 kids and I have a wonderful family. I am a die hard University of Utah fan and student. I love film-making and video editing. I was the student body vice president of my high school and was also on the drumline. I love playing sports, especially basketball, and was a coach at a rec center for a couple of years. I'm serving as a missionary for the Church in California, and it's been be the greatest experience of my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that it is the only true church on the face of the Earth. It is the same church that Jesus Christ established when He was on the Earth, and it was restored in its fullness by the prophet Joseph Smith. I know that the Savior, Jesus Christ, died for me, and for each and every person that has ever lived, is living, or will live on this Earth. He died so that we might live. No matter how hard your life may seem or how alone you may feel, Jesus is always there for you and He knows exactly how you feel. You and I are children of God, and He loves us more than we can ever know. You are never alone. You just need to turn to the Savior, and He will heal you; there is absolutely nothing that He cannot fix. The Book of Mormon is true. There really are living prophets on the Earth today. God lives and He loves each and every one of His children. I know with absolute surety that these things are true, and if you will ask God in prayer if they are true, then I will promise you that He will confirm to you that they are. The answer may not come immediately or in the way you want it to, but it will come; I know it will.

How I live my faith

I am living my faith by serving the Lord full time in the mission field. I do everything I can every day to help others feel the joy that comes from the gospel of Jesus Christ. Why do I do it? Because I know that this gospel will help everyone with everything that they could ever go through. I want everyone to feel as happy as I am! I also live my faith by talking to my Father in Heaven everyday through prayer. I know that He listens to me because He loves me, just like He loves you. I also live my faith by reading the words that He's given to me, which are in the scriptures. I live my faith by helping those around me and the people I come in contact with. I live my faith by doing everything I can to be a better person today than I was yesterday. I live my faith by trying to be like my Savior as much as I can possibly be.
