Hi I'm Collin

I grew up in Utah, Mississippi, and AZ! I love to run, and the piano. I am serving in the Ohio Cincinnati Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Salt Lake City Utah. I grew up playing all kinds of sports but only the unusual ones stuck like gymnastics, diving, and running. I mainly run and play the piano now. I struggled with emotional problems as a kid and had OCD. I believe that these problems no matter how difficult, have given me, and will give me so many opportunities to a lot of good in this world. My hope is that the world can normalize these conditions so that people won't be afraid to get help from any mental ailment. In the future, I either want to go into medical school, or be a college professor and a cross country coach. I would also love to be able to make a living playing the piano. My friends would describe me as funny, friendly, and confused. (in a good way :) I can't wait to see where life can take me.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and most of my family are church members too. I always have had a pretty strong belief that this church was true and for me, although i have also had many questions and doubts. In recent years I had an experience where i had to put all of my trust in God and Jesus Christ. i learned that i have a loving Heavenly Father, and that his son Jesus Christ really did atone for our sins, pains, and weaknesses. I learned to put my trust in God. I'm a Mormon because it makes me happy, and gives me hope.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a mission in the Ohio, Cincinnati mission. Sharing the Gospel has been the greatest experience of my life. I love seeing peoples lives change as they apply the Doctrine of Christ in their lives.I have found that if i just make any effort, God will bless me for that effort. I try to do little things everyday like read the scriptures and pray. I also continue to learn about the Sabbath day and love being able to take the sacrament each week. Its definitely changed me. Above anything else, i just try to share my talents with those we are around. I make my missionary companions sing... a lot! We will seriously just ask anyone we see on the street if we can sing them a song about Jesus.
