Hi I'm Wyatt Voorhees

I'm a baseball player, I'm a country boy, I'm an outdoors men, and most importantly, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am Wyatt, I got my mission call to New York, New York South mission. I report to the MTC on August 6th. I love sports, baseball is my favorite, I played high school baseball for four years. I love being out doors, camping, fishing, paint balling. I love riding horses and anything country. Country music is my favorite. I love doing service projects. I like to see the joy on peoples faces after helping them.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon. People always wonder, "isn't a Mormon someone who has many wives, or you cant go have fun". We don't have many wives, we have one wife. You can still have fun while you are choosing the right. What makes me a Mormon you may ask? Well i am a Mormon because, i was raised to be one. When was about 13 years old, i wanted to find out for myself, what is true and if i have been doing the right thing, and the reason i know that i am is because the spirit has told me. Everytime i do something right, I get this feel of joy and warmth inside of me. Heavenly Father lets me know that I am diong a good job and he loves me. But the same is true, when i do something wrong, and we all make mistakes, he lets me know that what I just did wasnt very smart. That is when i repent, I do this so I can always have the Holy Ghost with me. The Holy Ghost is an amazing thing to have with you. He is your heavenly messanger that always is willing to help you with whatever, as long as it is good and is the right thing to do. I know that Jesus Christ came down to this earth to be an example, I know that he sacrificed himself so that i could live with him again. I know that the Book of Mormon is true, everytime i read it i get a feeling of its truefullness. I know that serving a mission is the right thing to do. It is the closes way that i can repay my Heavenly Father. I know that this gospel is true. I know Joesph Smith returned this gospel back to this world. I love my parents and am thankful for their examples. I love my Heavenly Father. I say these thing in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I have had a couple callings in the church, i have been the president of the teachers quorum and secirtary of the priest. I live my faith by doing what is right everyday. I make sure that the people around me know my standards and what i believe. Im not affaird to stand up and leave, because someone is doing something that i dont believe in. I share my testimony with my friends, family, and anyone that is interested. I help the youth to prepare to service and be ready to go on a mission.
