Hi I'm Spencer

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently serving my mission in Germany! I was born in the church. I like to play water polo, swim, go fishing, workout, cheer, tumble, study history, study religion, and play drums! I love to learn and help others. If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

Why I am a Mormon

Why I'm a Mormon? We're all Mormons, lots of us just don't know it yet. The reason I say that is because many people don't know about the Plan of Salvation yet. It's God's plan for us as his children--the reason for living on this earth and where we go after we die. This plan is nowhere to be found so specifically as in the Mormon church. Bits and pieces of it are in the bibel, and with a trained eye, one could actually figure out this plan from the bible, that the Book of Mormon explains much more clearer. I think once we all truly come to understand the Plan of Salvation and it's purpose, (those of us that actually try to understand it) will receive the same knowledge and testimony that we are all brothers and sisters on the same journey back to our father in heaven. There is only one God, one baptism, one true church and I'm not afraid to tell you that it's this one because we have the Plan of Salvation and it makes such perfect sense.

How I live my faith

I'm very service oriented. I find joy by serving others. Whenever there is a chance to do some service, I will usually take it. I really belive that I can serve God by helping others in any way I can. I try to be an example those among me, my peers, and family. I try to be as nice to everyone as I can, as well as patient because that's how I would like to be treated from people as well.

What is being a Mormon like?

I can't really tell anyone what it's like to not be a Mormon, but from what I've observed on my mission in Germany, and my own experiences at home. What I mean by that is, we are often seen as the outsiders, who nobody really wants to talk to us or be nice to us for no good reason. For example, we take education very seriously in the mormon religion. In order to receive a good education, we need to go to school. With going to school, tests naturally come. We want to do good on tests, so we can receive good grades. To do that, we do our homework, pay attention in class, and learn for ourselves. As for myself, I took grades very seriously and I would get made fun of for it. While I was in high school it was all about drugs, sex, and money. Those things were cool. Well, we will see who is "cool" in 15 years... Mormons are often discriminated for the things which we believe. We all have standards in this church that we adhere to live by. We don't drink, don't have premarital sex, and the really good ones among us don't even go to rated R movies. We get made fun of for that, but in all reality, these things protect us and help us to focus on what's really important in life. Things like Family, friends, and God. If you're looking to be a Mormon, don't think it will be easy. People will make fun of you for no good reason. You will need to defend your faith and what you believe in. You will be expected to stay true to yourself and to God. Show more Show less
