Hi I'm Hunter

I was born and raised in Fresno. I Taught. I love writing, music, and computers. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am a martial arts instructor, and taught mostly children. I have a black belt in Jujistu and a brown in form of Kung-Fu. I enjoy writing fiction, playing guitar, and producing electronic dance music.

Why I am a Mormon

Well, it all started at the time before I was to serve a mission. Now don't get me wrong, I did want to serve, that was my own choice, but to be honest, my belief or "testimony" of the gospel was still small. I was getting discouraged. How was I supposed to teach people about my beliefs when it was hard to even talk to others, much less about the gospel. When I opened up my letter, saying I was to serve in Texas, it really hit me what I was doing, and my own fear and anxiety was taking over. Very many missionaries who have served can tell you, that the week before you leave is a very trying experience, and that's when every excuse out of the book nails you to stay and not serve. My nerves where getting to me and I was stressed. My mother could tell that I was stressed (as most mothers seem to have a knack for), and she asked if I prayed. Prayer! That was the last thing I wanted! I gruffly told her no, and that I didn't want to in the first place. She then told me these words of wisdom "Those times when you don't want to pray are the times you need to pray the most" That stuck with me, and I could faintly recall a scripture from the Book of Mormon, that "a good spirit teacheth an man to pray", and that god will "consecrate thy performance" (2 Nephi 32:8-9, pg. 115). I took the advice, went to my room and prayed earnestly. I asked if God really wanted me to go on a mission, and if so tell me. That was one of the most sincere prayers I've ever said. I really wanted to know once and for all, and I was willing to act on what He told me. I got this over whelming feeling of peace and comfort. I knew I was on the right track, and since, living the gospel has proved and tempered my faith. I know now that i'm on the right track. I'm a member of God's kingdom, once again established on the Earth! I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior! I am a Mormon!

How I live my faith

All the small things, reading scriptures, praying daily, and applying the Atonement of Jesus Christ to my life. Serving a mission is one of the greatest blessings of my life!
