Hi I'm Connor Kreutz

I'm a knowledge seeker, art enthusiast, foodie. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a university student studying Economics and International Political Science. I am interested in social issues, international development, art of all forms, and bottled water from other countries. When I am not studying, I enjoy being in charge, building stuff, rock climbing, tree climbing, playing the piano,and when the weather is inclement, knitting and cooking expensive food that I can't afford. I speak German, and live currently in Northern Germany. I hope to obtain a career which would allow me to travel the world, meet people from all walks of life, and help people be happier.

Why I am a Mormon

People who know me know that I am a skeptic. I analyze things from all angles to find flaws or fallacies. I can say, however, that I have yet to find a flaw in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is perfect, it is centered in love, and it can bring unending happiness if you let it. I, like most people, really like being happy. As a Mormon, I have found so much happiness. I have also come to find, that we can not expect the world to teach us, or our children how to love our neighbors and do good to those who may not always give us the same courtesy. That is why it is so critical to turn to Christ, our perfect example. The Mormon church, I have found, encourages Christ-like behavior in every one of life's difficult situations, no matter the case. This is important for me.

How I live my faith

I deeply believe in sharing God's love for his children through all types of service. We each have daily opportunities to be a blessing for people in our community, or across the globe. Taking advantage of those opportunities brings true happiness; I know that. In July 2014, I began a two year church mission to Berlin, Germany. I hope to be able to serve the people of Germany in whatever capacity God sees fit. Missionaries often teach people about the life and teachings of Christ, but they also do much more. Missionaries of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints may also teach languages, conduct addiction recovery workshops, or provided service to anyone in need, regardless of religious affiliation. They help people to live happier, more fulfilling lives through Christ.
