Hi I'm Spencer

I'm a cyclist, a bike mechanic, college student, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to build, repair, and tinker will all sorts of things. Recently I have trained to become a bike mechanic, and love to go mountain biking. I also love to go camping, hiking, and be in the outdoors. In the past, I have been a counselor at a Boy Scout summer camp for five years. I currently attend Brigham Young University, and am hoping to study engineering.

Why I am a Mormon

I love to serve and help others. And in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, we are one big family. Being in the church and attending worship services regularly gives me so much happiness and clarity in my own life. Even though I've been a member all my life, I would love it if everyone could enjoy the comfort and joy that I feel from being a faithful disciple of Christ.

How I live my faith

I love to go out and perform random acts of kindness. Sometimes it is helping someone who broke down on the highway, unclogging storm drains during floods, scraping snow off of windshields, secretly repairing flat bike tires, and basically anything I can think of to help others. I will soon be leaving on a mission to serve the people of Uruguay for two years.

Can you tell me about Mormon customs: how you dress for church, what holidays you celebrate, etc.?

Spencer
To church we wear nice, "fancy" clothing. This would be a suit, or a white shirt and tie for men. Women wear modest skirts and dresses. We celebrate the two main religious holidays, Christmas and Easter. As for the other holidays, it just depends on where you live and your culture. In the United States, Mormons usually celebrate Thanksgiving, although the Mormons in, say, Argentina, probably do not celebrate Thanksgiving because it is an American holiday. Show more Show less
