Hi I'm Schuyler Giliam

Wahaan! I'm a missionary, I LOVE Football, and I'm a Mormon!!!

About Me

Wahaan! My name is Schuyler. I grew up in Washington state. There I was Baptized when I was 8 years old. I LOVE the Pacific North West! About 6 years ago I moved to Orem, UT. Its not Washington but it'll do. I love my family, they are the best!!! I also LOVE Football! I have learned many life lessons from playing, such as 'Shooting a gap is like playing the slot machines at Wendover, you just never win!' or 'You go for two, you get none.' or my personal favorite, 'It's easy! Just don't think about it!' I played Offensive Line throughout high school and plan to continue in college when I return from my full time missionary service. I am a University of Washington fan. Bow down to Washington!!! I also love saying 'Roll Tide' even though I would not consider myself an big Alabama fan... who am I kiddin' I Love 'em, ROLL TIDE ROLL!!! Sports have been my life, but with all my love for sports there has always been one thing I love even more, that is the Savior, our Redeemer Jesus Christ, and His church.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up believing. I gained a testimony of what my parents and leaders taught me through prayer, and scripture study, and experiences I have. Anybody can learn the truth of it by doing the same, it's as simple as that! I have learned a lot of truth about our Father in Heaven and his son Jesus Christ through the teachings of this Church. I know that this is Christ's Church. I am a Mormon because, to paraphrase Tad R. Callister's words, 'I just know too much to be happy with any other church.'

How I live my faith

I love my Savior. I try to live my life according to His teachings, loving The Lord with all my might and loving my neighbors as myself. Even though my actions have not always shown it, I try my hardest to repent and live a Christ-like life. Being on a mission for a little over a year now I have experienced a glimpse of how a true disciple of Jesus Christ should act. I realize how much of a bone head teenager I was. I realize that I could have, and definitely should have, done so much more to emulate Christ. I have to learn from my shortcomings and become more like my Savior. I am now serving a mission in the Minnesota Minneapolis Mission, the 'MMM'. Or as my Dad likes to call it, Minnesnowta. I love it here! I love serving my Lord all day everyday. I'm too blessed to be depressed. I am one of the 'Chosen Frozen'!
