About Me

I grew up in Utah. I am currently a college student pursuing a degree in engineering. I love learning new things and attending school. I am very involved in my school and community through leadership positions and service. I love meeting and getting to know new people. I love playing tennis and playing the piano. I love spending time with my two little brothers and traveling with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church, but that is not the reason I am Mormon. I have made a personal choice to be a Mormon. Being Mormon is not the easiest or most popular thing to do, so regardless of the beliefs of my family members, I knew that I needed to know for myself if The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was true. As I began a serious search for truth and a serious study of the Book of Mormon on my own, little by little I began to feel the truth of the book and of the church. By the time I finished the Book of Mormon and prayed, I already had my answer. I knew that it was the word of God and that the church was true. As I started trying harder to live the teachings of the church, I found myself being happier and more confident with my life. Since the time that I discovered the truth of the church, there have been trials and difficulties, as all of us must face in this life. I found that through those challenges, God was always there to listen and answer my prayers and to strengthen me in times of need. Just as I found the knowledge for myself, by studying the Book of Mormon, sincerely praying, and being willing to act on the answer, anyone can know for themselves the truthfulness of the gospel. Being a Mormon is not easy, but it is definitely worth it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in my daily actions. Every day I try to improve something about myself in order become a better person. I try to reach out, help those in need, be a good example, and be a friend to everyone. I do my best to be honest to others and to myself. I study the scriptures daily, regularly participate in religion classes, and attend church weekly. I serve as a family history consultant and teach others how to find their ancestors and compile their family history.
