Hi I'm Zachary Balls

I have lived in Hyde Park, Utah my whole life. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am 19 years old. I graduated from High School in 2014 and am planning on attending USU. Don't what I am going to be studying. Good plan right? I am the type of person who hates being inside when I could be doing something outside. I am usually outside doing something active of the sort. I have played soccer ever since I was 5. It is probably my favorite sport. I also love playing Ultimate Frisbee. I have played for my school team and will most likely play in college. I guess the reason I love sports so much is because I am on the same team as my friends and that is what makes it fun. I also enjoy hunting, fourwheeling, and occasionally Fifa when I am bored and don't want to do anything else. I also love hanging out with friends as much as possible and eating snow cones. I love chocolate cake too. My favorite movie would have to be Godzilla, don't ask me why, I just do. Favorite color is orange.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church but like everyone, I needed to receive an answer for myself. I wasn't really searching for that answer hard enough. I guess what I am saying is that I wasn't diligently seeking for the answer. It took almost 19 years for me to receive my answer. It finally came when I had real intent to know if it was true. I know that this church is true and the true gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored to the earth. I know that God lives. Jesus is His son. The Only Begotten of the Father in the Flesh. He is our Redeemer. He is our Mediator with the Father. He it was who died on the cross to atone for our sins. I know that through Jesus Christ, we all can be made clean again and be found spotless before God at the last day. I know that through the binding power of the priesthood, I can live with my family forever.

How I live my faith

I have enjoyed going to seminary to learn more about the gospel. Right now I am serving as a missionary in the Texas Houston South Mission. It is one of the best callings that I could ever ask for. The best part about everything that I have done in the church is service. Service brings me joy. I love helping out everyone that is around me. When I do service, I get lost in a different world when all I am thinking about is those around me, not in myself.
