Hi I'm Connor Snow Reed

Alaska is where I grew up. I consider myself to be of the humorous nature and quite entertaining to be around. I am a Mormon.

About Me

Well I have said that I am a very entertaining person to be around. While I understand this may sound a bit narcissistic I like to think it's true. Theatre, improv and making people smile and laugh is my passion. Whether it's telling a joke, performing a drama, or cooking an amazing meal for someone, nothing brings me more joy to bring happiness to someone else's life. I have fours siblings, (two brothers and two sisters) and I am number four in the line of children of my family. I take pride in being an honest man, sometimes too honest, and if I am being honest I am truly a peculiar person. I love to day dream and am the biggest disney fan on the earth. Seriously, nobody can quote those princess films better then me. I am going to be going to the Montevideo, Uruguay spanish speaking mission very soon and I am really excited about it.

Why I am a Mormon

I was once told by a nonmember friend that I am only a Mormon because my parents brainwashed me from birth to believe everything they said. I found this to be very funny. I went on to explain this to my friend: While it is true that my parents have had great influence on me, even dragging me to church when I was younger when I very much didn't want to, none of that meant they made me believe. What made me desire to be a Mormon is there was never a moment when I thought it was a bad idea to go to church, or to ask for forgiveness from God or to even ask God if the church was true. I discovered all of that on my own with the aid of the Holy Ghost, the spirit helped me realize what was right and what was wrong, and he made me realize without a doubt in my mind that this church is true, and that it is the BEST thing to attend church, to ask for forgiveness from God and that this is the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. This is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith like most other people I suppose. I go to church every sunday. I partake of the sacrament, read my scriptures, say my prayers, and go to the temple. But from a day to day basis I suppose there is more to it. I like going through the day admiring the outside world and everything God has created, and will bring it up to anyone that's listening; this is how I try to keep God on my mind on a day to day basis.
