Hi I'm Chris Petersen

I grew up in Michigan. I recently graduated from high school. I like being outdoors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I graduated high school in 2014 and will be attending college for mechanical engineering in the fall of 2016, after I serve a 2 year mission. I love being outdoors and doing things like camping, hiking, hunting, fishing, and golfing. I also enjoyed playing trombone in band. Cars are also something that I enjoy, whether I am working on them or driving them.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. As I have participated in classes and done personal study, I have come to know of the truthfulness of the gospel. I have read and studied the Book of Mormon and I know that it is true because I have felt the Spirit of the Lord as I have read and studied it. It is the word of God. I know that Joseph Smith was a true and living prophet of God and that he was able to restore the true church of Jesus Christ through God's great power. I know that God will protect those who are doing his work. I know that I am choosing to do the right thing by serving a mission. I know that I am blessed as I do the things that our Heavenly Father has commanded us to do and that through him all things are possible. I have seen this in my life.

How I live my faith

I love to serve others. I am currently serving a 2 year mission that began in August of 2014. It is a great opportunity to serve the Lord and those around me. In the past I have had many opportunities to serve others through the youth program. I strive to do what is right and to improve in all that I do. I do my best to be a good example to those around me and to represent my Savior Jesus Christ in my everyday life.
