Hi I'm Welden

I'm a Californian, I love my family, fencing, games, science-fiction, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy the camping, and sports, but I am happiest when I am with family at home. I love playing board/card games with my family and friends, and also enjoy competitive computer games. I also love read. My favorite genres are Historical, and Science Fiction, but I thoroughly enjoy any well written book. I love to play games and watch television with my cousins. Family has always been a important part of my life, and I look forward to family gatherings, or spending time with my sisters and parents.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are both Mormon, and I have always attended church with them. There are so many churches, and so many people grow up believing what their parents have taught them, I wanted to know for myself if this church was really the true church. I had read parts of the Book of Mormon before, but had never read it from front to back. I decided I would read it, and follow the promise found in the introduction of the Book of Mormon. It invites all to read and ponder the Book of Mormon, then ask God through prayer whether it is true or not, and whether it contains his truth. My answer did not come immediately, but one day as I was reading it I felt an overpowering feeling on peace and happiness, and I knew that the Book of Mormon was true and that this was God's church. Since then I have had many spiritual experiences that have confirmed this experience.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being a good son and friend. I try my hardest to be a peacemaker, and to help others feel comfortable and at ease around me. I try to notice and help those that seem lonely or uncomfortable. I am currently serving as a missionary in the Taiwan Taichung mission.
