Hi I'm Justin

I grew up in Idaho. I love to play the marching snare drum and hang with my friends. I love to play strategy games. I am a Mormon!

About Me

I am a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints. I have always loved drumming. It's one of my favorite pastimes. I just love making up new rhythms that challenge my playing abilities. I also really enjoy hanging with my friends. We always go on the most fun adventures and with them, it never gets boring. I also love to spend time with my family and go on trips with them. They're all awesome and fun and I really enjoy being with them. I also love to design new board games using pieces from other games. I have made about eleven. I also write stories. I have a friend who created a site for writers and I joined it. Its fun because we get to spend time being creative with each other. I have earned my Eagle Scout award and love to serve others.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it brings joy to my life. I love everything about this Church. I know that it has helped me in my life more than I can count. I know that this church is true for I have felt it. I know that we have a God and that we are his children and he hears and answers our prayers. He loves us with an infinite love and wants only the best for us. He is there and will help you when you are feeling weak or afraid. With his help, anything is possible. He will help you if you but ask him for it. I know that the scriptures are the word of God that help us learn how to live a happy life and keep us safe if we will but heed to the counsel found within them. But most importantly, I have a knowledge that Jesus Christ is my Savior. He has died for me and allowed me to be forgiven of my sins through the gift of the atonement. I also know that he lives and eagerly wants us to return and live with him again in the kingdom of heaven. I know that Joseph Smith is a true prophet of God. I have known this to be true because I have felt the Holy Spirit testify to me that it is true. I am grateful for all that he has done and that he went through and I know that Thomas S. Monson is our current prophet today in these Latter days to help guide us. I am a Mormon because it has touched my life, I encourage you to let it do the same for you.

How I live my faith

I have always been an active member in the Church since I was born. I have been asked to serve in many of the presidency positions since I was twelve and have enjoyed every one of them. We always plan awesome service projects, just things to get around and serve the community around us. We serve in the big things like, Rake Up Boise or go and do little service projects like helping out at the food bank or shoveling snow for people who need it. There are so many fun things we have done over the years to help serve people and I have loved every second of it.
