Hi I'm Spencer

I was raised on a farm in a very small town in Idaho. I enjoy hunting, sports, and anything outdoors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Ever since I was very young I have worked along side my family members on our small farm in Idaho. Through this wonderful experience of how I was raised I learned how to work hard and learned to love being outside. I've been driving tractors and riding horses as long as I can remember. I also love to play sports and enjoy the outdoors in other ways such as mountain biking, hiking, or hunting. I'm currently serving as a missionary for the Church in the Germany, Berlin mission.

Why I am a Mormon

Both of my parents are converts but I was baptized when I was 8 and have been going to church as long as I can remember. I always believed in the church but I didn't really know it was true until my senior year of high school. I was struggling with my faith and I decided that I would either serve a mission or leave the church. The Sunday after that I felt the spirit so strongly at church. I went and talked to my bishop about how I had been feeling and he expressed his love for me and told me I could start my mission papers right away if I wanted. Following that major turning point I have been able to feel Christ so close to me in my life. I have come to truly know my savior and how much he loves all his children regardless of their shortcomings or transgressions. I testify that Christ lives and that he suffered for all of our sins. He has been through every struggle we can imagine and he will help us through all of our trials. I have learned to recognize the Holy Ghost and through that I have come to know Jesus Christ. I know that this religion contains the fullness of Jesus Christ's gospel. I know that families are essential to God's plan and that through sacred priesthood power families can be together forever. I know these things to be true.

How I live my faith

As I have grown up in the church I have had the opportunity to serve in the community along side other church members. I have enjoyed being able to give service and do good for others. My biggest joy and excitement currently comes form my mission call to the Germany Berlin mission. I will be serving there full time from 2014-2016.
