Hi I'm Gavin Smith

I'm from Centerville Ohio, I love the outdoors, singing, and I have great hair. And I'm a Mormon

About Me

I love being outside and basically live there as much as possible. Hiking, camping, climbing a tree, just sitting, it doesn't matter, I just love it. I enjoy singing and was previously the bass in a contemporary a cappella group. I'm happy all the time just because I can be. I plan on studying architecture in my future with a focus on sustainable design. I also have wonderful hair and enjoy taking tree selfies. I am currently serving a two year mission in Hermosillo Mexico.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have a testimony of its truth. I am not perfect or even close, I've made thousands of mistakes big and small, nonetheless, I love Christ and I know that he loves me. I know that I am the happy person I am because I am Mormon. People always talk about having a "testimony" and knowing with a conviction of the truth of something. I never really understood that. I believed but didn't have conviction. Then I changed that. I dedicated myself to discover the truth and studied. I read the scriptures. Bible and Book of Mormon and followed the advice found in both James 1:5 and Moroni 10:3-5. I prayed and received an answer. This is real. God is our Heavenly Father and Christ is his son and our brother. I cannot deny because now I know. And in all honesty that's why I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in the way I am I guess. I'm just a very happy individual and I can tie that back to what I believe. I always look on the bight side.
