Hi I'm Austin Thorpe

I'm a Mormon, proud and true, and I will always stand for truth. I grew up in Lehi, Utah and played basketball all my life.

About Me

All my childhood I grew up playing basketball. I have always loved the sport. I love doing anything outside, whether it be a sport, adventuring, or even just hanging out with friends. I also have a pretty big flaw, which is the television. I love watching t.v. series and once I get started on one I have to finish it. I love to sing. Whenever I have some down time or when I'm with my friends just sitting around, I love to sing and express emotion through music. Along with that I love to cook and more importantly eat! This may sound weird but I love to work out and feel sore! It is one of the best things in my opinion to feel like, because I know that I am getting stronger. This might sound a little nerdy but I really like math and solving problems. I am a thinker and a leader. I love being the one that makes the decisions and leads others to success. I really dislike reading, but I know one thing for sure if I would have to choose one book to read for the rest of my life, it would be the Book of Mormon, because I absolutely love it, and I could read that book forever and ever and still learn something new from it!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have a testimony of Jesus Christ and his atonement. I know the Book of Mormon to be the word of God and that Joseph Smith translated it. I love the gospel and it makes me happy every single day.

How I live my faith

I live my faith to the best example that I can be. I try to be as Christ like as I can be and live in a way that my father in heaven can be pleased. I lead others by example and try my best to be loving and caring for others with charity.
