Hi I'm Weston

I was born and raised in Raymond, Alberta. I live on a farm. I love to play all kinds of sports. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am an 18 year old boy, I am currently serving a mission in the Nevada Las Vegas West Mission. I was born and raised in Raymond, Alberta, Canada. I live on a farm, where we Ranch Cattle and grow crop, such as Wheat, Barely, and Canola. I Love to be active, I've played on Soccer, Volleyball, Basketball, and Badminton teams. I'm a big supporter of Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder. I also love Ping-Pong, Hiking, Camping, Skiing, Quading, Wakeboarding, and Tubing. I'm a fan of Country Music and some other genres, but mostly just Country.

Why I am a Mormon

My Dad has been a member his whole life, my Mom was a convert when she was 15. I was born into the church, and was baptized at 8. My family is a very active and strict family in the gospel, I have always done what I was told, because I was taught to be obedient and if I'm obedient I will be blessed. When I got older I became more stubborn, and when I was told to do something, I would do the opposite, even if I knew that what I was told was what I was supposed to do. Not until about a year and a half ago did I really want to know if all the stories and principles that I had been taught were true and if they would actually benefit me. I had always believed that they were true, but I wanted to know. So I tried it out, I read my scriptures, prayed, served, contributed in lessons, and strived to have the Holy Ghost with me. Not only did I just want to do it, but I wanted to do it sincerely, I sincerely read, and prayed, and served. That way I would have a more meaningful experience. And it has worked, and is still working, I'm a stubborn person and I don't do things unless I believe they will help me. Being a member of the church is not an easy thing to do, but because I now know that God loves me, Joseph Smith saw God the Father, and His Son Jesus Christ, and that the Book of Mormon is a True book and was inspired by God, I live it. I wouldn't live it if I didn't believe it. And that is why I am a Mormon

How I live my faith
