Hi I'm Cortland Hutchison

I grew up in Sherwood, Oregon. I am serving a mission in Argentina. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am currently serving in the Argentina Posadas mission. I love playing all kinds of sports but in high school I played Basketball and Lacrosse. I play the piano, and I will be attending BYU after I return from my mission.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a Mormon has been all I have ever known. I have grown up in the gospel but I was truly converted when I got into high school. Once I gained my own testimony of the Book of Mormon it changed my life. I was happier, my trials were less monumental, and I became a much better person. The gospel has changed my life because it has given me a sure foundation. I can always rely upon Jesus Christ and he has given me the strength to always face adversity with a smile. The principles that the gospel preaches are true and I know that Joseph Smith was called of God. I testify that God loves each and everyone of his children and I have felt that love everyday of my life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by my diligent efforts to be more like Jesus Christ everyday. I am not perfect but I know through Jesus Christ I can become perfected. I challenge myself each day to serve others and prioritize the needs of others ahead of my own. The greatest way to show one's love towards another is through service and I take that to heart. Throughout high school I was involved in four different service clubs and helped raise money for Doernbecher Children's Hospital. I focused a lot of my time serving others throughout my life because I know the great benefits that come from it.
