Hi I'm Seth Bertlshofer

I'm a Mormon! I've grown up in the church and accomplished many things within the church and outside of the church.

About Me

I love working with computers. Right now I'm in college earning a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science - Software Development. I'm an organizer for a computer science group call hackUSU (http://hackusu.org/). In this group helps students learn more about computers and coding even if they have no experience with computers. I love living in Utah because there's so many things to do outside. I rock climb, hike, go boating during the summer and in the winter I snowboard!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church but all members, whether born into the church or converted to the gospel need to gain a testimony of their own. I have done this and am constantly building my testimony. I know that this is the only true church of Jesus Christ on the Earth today with the fullness of His gospel. I know this because of my study of the scriptures which includes the King James version of the bible, Book of Mormon, Perl of Great Price and the continuing revelation from the Lord's prophet and apostles on the Earth today. I've also followed the promise that is given by Moroni the prophet which is found in the Book of Mormon Moroni 10:3-5, I've read and prayed about the the Book of Mormon, Prophets and Apostles and their teachings and I know them to be true. This is the only way to receive a testimony to read about a principle, pray about the truthfulness of it, then put it into practice and you will then know whether that thing that you have is true or not. I know that there is a living prophet on this Earth and that the Lord continues to talk with his children. He loves us all and doesn't want us to be without guidance in the world. It is so important for us to have this guidance. I know that the Lord knows me personally there have been many experiences in my life that have testified of this truth. He knows me and cares about me. There have been many times where I have been inspired and impressed to do certain things and at the time the outcome seemed like they were pointing me in the wrong direction but I put trust and faith into those impressions and they have lead me to where I'm at today with a loving wife and a great career path.

How I live my faith

In the church my wife and I create the bulletin for our Sacrament meetings (most sacred meeting in the church). I'm now a Financial Clerk for my ward. This is a very sacred responsibility to deal with the funds of the church. We use our Tithing funds to build/repair church houses and build temples all around the world. We also use funds called Fast Offerings to help the poor and God's children in situations of emergency like Floods, Hurricanes, Earth Quake, etc. I am an Eagle Scout and have done many projects in the community. The Mormons are very involved with the scouting program.
