Hi I'm Austin Judd

I'm a small town kid from AZ living it up in the concrete jungle of NYC. I live, I laugh, I eat ice cream. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a little town in Southeastern AZ called Pima. It's little but it's home and i love the small town life. I love my family, I'm the oldest kid in my family and have 3 little brothers. I'm a huge sports fan! I played Football, Basketball, and Baseball in High School and loved every moment of it. Not only do i love playing sports but i love being a fan, for real there's just something magical about sports. I love laughing and having fun and making other people laugh and have fun. If I'm not laughing and smiling I'm not me. Don't really know what I'm gonna be when i "grow up" if that day ever comes, but if it makes people smile it will be alright with me.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I've experienced the happiness it brings to my life. And not only my life but my families life. I know i have a Father in heaven that cares when I'm sad and wants me to be happy. I've messed up in life over and over again but he's always there for me, and i have a savior who made it possible for all the pains in my life to be relieved. I grew up with my parents being members of the church and was raised in it i guess you could say, but like everyone else in this world i had to find out for myself if what I've been hearing my whole life is true or not. I read the Book of Mormon, I've prayed to my Father in Heaven. It's true, and i can't deny it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being the best disciple of Jesus Christ i can be. I try to live my life the way my father in heaven wants me to, and be an example of my faith to everyone around me. I do my best to help others see the happiness the Gospel of Jesus Christ has brought to me and my family. I'm currently sharing this to the people of New York City as i serve of mission.
