Hi I'm Christopher Couch

I grew up in California. I love nuclear energy. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

The world from which I come is one for which I am extremely thankful. I've grown up being raised by a single mother, a mother that has been the foundation for good in my life. From her I have found my religion and my belief in the LDS church. Above all things I am grateful for from her, this is the one thing I hold close to my heart. This is the one thing I know I need in my life. Without the gospel in which I utterly believe, I know I would not be as happy, blessed, and determined as I am now in my life. I was born in a place called Twenty-nine Palms in the middle of the California desert on the world's largest Marine base. My father was in the Marines. However, I have mostly grown up in a small farming community called Hanford located in the central valley of California. I have attended school surrounded by the same people that I've known for years. These are my childhood friends and we've grown up together. Hanford has become the home town in my life. It is that special place which I will never forget. Growing up in this small, unknown community made me realize how little I knew, how much there is to know, and how much I want to know. Both of my parents are and continue ever more to be my inspiration to be a hard worker, as they are. I aspire to achieve great and positive things for this troubled world. From this, my dream has been to use my talents for the better good, to help the world as a whole and to bring about the truth. Also, rats are awesome.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church and was baptized at the age of eight. One of the main reasons I have chosen to stay in the church is simply because I have found no fault with it. Nothing that the church holds its' standards to wavers me in any way. Everything the church teaches, I agree with. It just makes sense. But also, I have felt the presence of the Holy Ghost many times, and because of that, I have no doubt. Memories from EFY (Especially For Youth), camping trips with the scouts in the church, and just attending church on Sunday, I have full faith in the truthfulness of this gospel.

How I live my faith

I am active in my church and attend ever Sunday and perform weekly duties within the church. I am leaving on a mission very soon and hope to change the hearts of many and open a new light to those who have been living in the dark.

Do Mormons practice polygamy?

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Christopher Couch
No, it's an obligation all Christians promise to take upon themselves when they call themselves Christian. If we truly claim that we follow Christ, then we must share the gospel. Show more Show less
