About Me

I’m from West Jordan Utah I'm a convert to the church. I love horse riding and playing soccer. I’m 21 yrs old. I'm serving in the San Diego California Mission. I'm the oldest in my family and I was the first one in my family to want to join the church. I love playing music. I especially love playing the bass. I love my family they are the most important people in my life right now. I love to serve our Heavenly Father. I'm the first one in my family to go on a mission and I know that my younger siblings are going to serve a mission in the future. i have 4 younger siblings 2 sisters and 2 brothers. I pulled my family to the church when I decided to be baptized.

Why I am a Mormon

I was having a hard time when 2 missionaries knocked on my door and my parents let them in and they started to share the gospel to us and I didn’t want anything with the church and before I knew it I was the first one in my family to get baptized all because I had a beautiful experience and that's when i knew what i needed to do so I texted the missionaries and told them I knew that the church was true and that Joseph Smith was a prophet and that I wanted to be baptized.My family followed me and we were all baptized the same day. we were baptized March of 2012. My mom, dad, 2 sisters, and 1 brother were baptized, and in a few years the youngest will be baptized.

How I live my faith

I help my ward with the music and conducting the songs we sing. I was also a primary teacher for the 4 and 5 year olds. I love sharing the gospel with people. i also show my faith by serving the lord. reading the scriptures, going to church every sunday, sharing the gospel with others
