Hi I'm Hunter

I grew up in Utah and studied at Utah Valley University. I am a cross country runner. I love my family! I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I attended Utah Valley University for one year before coming to my mission in Alabama. I love my family and friends and I do the things I love with them! I love cross country, camping, reading, listening to music, the Utah Jazz (which hurts sometimes), watching movies, drawing, painting, playing piano, basketball, soccer, United States history, making movies, chocolatey desserts, etc. Now I'm preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ and I love it!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes me happy to know that I have a Savior who loves me and that because of Him my family can be together forever. I didn't always know the church was true but I always saw how happy it made my parents and siblings and friends and I wanted to have that too. I read the Book of Mormon and it said that if you have the desire to believe and you ask in faith, Heavenly Father will tell you it is true by the power of the Holy Ghost. It seemed like that scripture was speaking straight to me, so I prayed and Heavenly Father gave me my answer. It wasn't a perfect knowledge that this church is true at the start, but I've been building off that moment ever since and I know it's true now. I know God loves His children and He knows each of us personally. The things that matter to us matter to Him and He wants us to be happy. I know Joseph Smith was a prophet called of God to restore His church on the earth. I know President Monson is our prophet today. I love my Savior and I'm grateful for Him. That's why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Before my mission my family and I would go to church every Sunday. Now that I'm on my mission it's kind of like I go to church every day! I'm a fan of the Boy Scouts of America, and I am an Eagle Scout. It took a lot of hard work and dedication but that's why it was so fun! I attended all four years of seminary at my high school and was the president of the seminary council my senior year. We organized monthly goals and challenges for our fellow students so we could all build our faith in Jesus Christ together. I had the opportunity to hometeach two of the greatest families in the world back home. Hometeaching just means getting to know another family and taking care of their needs and once a month you share a spiritual message with them in their home. It also involves making them cookies every once in a while. We did a lot of service projects around our neighborhood and community in my young mens groups.
