Hi I'm Griffin Thompson

I grew up in Utah, I have the coolest family, I'm serving in the Kansas Wichita Mission, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Born and raised in good ol Utah! I have the best/funniest family ever and spending time with them is one of my favorite things to do. I love to go golfing with friends, myself, my dad, or anyone! I also enjoy playing basketball. I love watching sports while drinking an ice cold Dr. Pepper. I'm currently serving a mission in Kansas and it's the greatest thing ever!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it brings me happiness and blessings! I am able to come closer to my Savior Jesus Christ everyday because of His gospel. I know that this is the Savior's church here upon the earth and that he personally knows all of us. His suffering for us is something he did because he loves us. I know that we can always rely upon Christ because He has been through and experienced all of our trials and heartaches. The times I've felt the closest to Christ has been when I've followed the teachings and principles of His church. Some of those teachings and principles have come from the Book of Mormon which I can testify is the word of God! I know it is from God and that when we read it, we will become more like our Savior. I know Joseph Smith was called as a prophet to bring forth the Book of Mormon and to restore Christ's church. I continue to follow His gospel because I know it's the way to be happy!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by sharing it with everyone! I have the best calling anybody in the church can have and that's being a full time missionary. As a missionary I get to talk to many people everyday with various beliefs and challenges. It's so cool to see how Jesus Christ can help with anything and everything! Serving others is how I live my faith and when I'm serving others is when I am the happiest and when I see my faith grow the most. I also try to always have meaningful prayers and scripture study! It's not always easy but I know it helps me grow my faith and continually learn more about the gospel of Jesus Christ.
