Hi I'm Mason

I'm from sunny San Diego, I'm a huge video game nerd, I love sports, I love the beach, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

My name is Mason Snow. I'm currently serving in the Texas, San Antonio Mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I love sports, video games, going to the beach, listening to music, driving cars, watching movies...pretty much anything and everything haha, I like to have a good time. After my mission I aspire to one day be a Physical Therapist, specifically working with athletes and rehabilitation. I have an awesome family of stalwart souls, with great examples of faithful parents leading the way. I love God, I love my family, and I love being a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Church, but I definitely didn't always agree with it. When I was in my teenage years, I found myself rebelling against many of the things I had been taught growing up. I didn't think that church was for me, and I definitely didn't have a testimony or knowledge that God was there. There were a couple instances when I was 16 or 17 years old when I had felt the Spirit of the Lord in my life, but I fought it and didn't want to believe that it was real. I didn't pray, I didn't read the scriptures, and I dreaded going to church every Sunday. However, when I was about 18 years old, I had a life-threatening experience that changed my entire outlook on life. I realized that I wasn't invincible, that even I was subject to pain, afflictions, and even death. Many events occurred in the following couple months that lead me to act in faith and ask God if He was really there. I prayed, and the answer I received that night was overwhelming. I knew then that God was there, that He knew me, and that what I had been taught my entire life was true. I decided then and there to shape up, quit the things I had been doing, and to put in the work necessary for me to serve an LDS mission so I could help others to have that same knowledge that was revealed to me by the Spirit of the Lord. I love God, I love this Church, and I am so grateful for everything that it has done for me in my life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith primarily by just doing the things that we, as members of God's church, are asked to do. I try not to participate in activities that drive the Spirit away, and I try to live to a higher standard and be an example to others when at all possible. I don't drink or smoke, and I don't really attend any parties or anything where I might not feel comfortable. I make mistakes, just like anyone else, but I try to do my best to live how I know I'm supposed to live, and I try to be a disciple of our Lord Jesus Christ and represent him in all that I do.
