Hi I'm CJ

I'm serving an LDS Mission in Brazil! I grew up in Utah! I love hunting! I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I'm the oldest sibling in my family out of my brother and sister. I really like to get out and go hunting. Being able to go anywhere in the wilderness and just have time to think and enjoy the excitement of the hunt is one of the best feelings ever. I have been accepted into college but I've defered my enrollment for two years because I'm serving a mission beginning October 8th! I also like to hang out with my friends and be in the water. Don't fall off the water tube haha!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up raised as a mormon. I have still had to learn for myself though if the teachings of this chirch are true or not. I've read the Book of Mormon and prayed about it. Through the Holy Ghost, Heavenly Father has shown me that the Book of Mormon's stories are true and full of lessons that we can learn from his prophets from the past. I also know that the Book is proof that Jesus Christ is real and he will help us accomplish Heavenly Fathers Plan for us when we obey his commandments. I am Mormon because I believe that what this Church teaches is how I can be like God and with Him again.

How I live my faith

I go to church every week. After "grauduating" from the youth classes for the young men in the church I accepted the duty to be in the ward youngs mens presidency where I help organize lessons for the young men in church and plan activities with the other members of the presidency. It's been great! I'm also a ward missionary so I get to talk to people in my neighborhood about the church! It's been really fun and the experience will help me a lot when I serve a two year mission in Brazil. I still have a little while at home until I leave to teach about the church though.
