Hi I'm Reid

I'm from Ashburn, Virginia, I'm serving as a full time missionary in Phoenix, Arizona, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving as a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Phoenix, Arizona! When I come home after two years I will continue on as a Music Education major. I want to be a band director when I'm all grown up! I've experienced a lot of pain growing up but it was all my own fault. I had an addiction to pornography for 8 years and it wasn't until recently that I finally decided enough was enough. Its been so a humbling experience and looking back on it all I wish I had given it up a lot sooner!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because the doctrine is so incredibly simple, but it makes such a huge impact in my life. By repenting through the atonement of Jesus Christ and being baptized in his name by the proper authority we can live with out Father in Heaven again. I love being a member of this church because I can have a close, personal relationship with not only my Heavenly Father but also with Jesus Christ. I love how I can have instant access to his atonement whenever I need it. I love how this church is a community and how as soon as you join or move in you instantly have a family and friends. This gospel is true, this church is true, and Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ know each one of you individually.

How I live my faith

I am living my faith here in Arizona every single day! As a missionary I go out and talk to people from 9 in the morning till 9 at night. I get to talk to people from all walks of life about how much our Heavenly Father loves us and how he knows us each individually. I also have the opportunity to provide service for my fellow man! Missionaries attend church meetings on Sunday's and we help teach the restored gospel of Jesus Christ.
