Hi I'm Chris

I grew up in Dallas, Texas and am now serving a mission in Bahia Blanca, Argentina. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I write music as a hobby and I plan to turn it into a career as I go to school at BYU. I want to do film scoring and curate soundtracks for movies. I've spent time living in Texas, California, Georgia and Washington. I come from a family of 9 and am the third child. I go to school with my two older sisters and love it there!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is Christ's original restored church. Joseph Smith, at age 14, prayed to our Father in Heaven and had the experiences and revelations that led to this gospel being restored to the earth. The priesthood that I hold is the same power possessed by the teachers and prophets of the biblical times. I know that The Book of Mormon is another record that testifies of Christ's coming and teachings, but from the point of view of those in the America's. I know that Thomas Monson is the prophet for this day and age, and he has been called to God to lead this true church. Through the following of his teachings and others of this dispensation, and the utilization of the Atonement, I know that I can return to live with Heavenly Father again.

How I live my faith

During my senior year in high school I had the opportunity to be a Family History Consultant and learn/teach about Genealogy. This was such a blessing because I got to learn about my own ancestors and I really believe that as we do so, those ancestors will strengthen us during our time here on earth. I also was a teacher for my Elders Quorum while at school and had the opportunity to teach my peers principles of the gospel. I am now headed to Bahia Blanca, Argentina to serve a full-time mission for two years and really hope to change peoples lives with the truthfulness of Christ's restored Gospel.
