Hi I'm Grant White

I am from Utah and currently serving a mission in Sweden. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I attended Brigham Young University for two semesters before my mission and plan to continue my education after my mission. I enjoy the outdoors. I love to ski and snowboard. In the warmer months I enjoy mountain biking, hiking, waterskiing, and wakeboarding. But my real passion is eating cereal competitively.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are both members and so I have been a part of this church ever since I was born. As I grew older I started loving the church more and more. I started going to church because I wanted to, not because my parents wanted me too. I love this church and the peace the church put in my life. I am so happy I am part of this church. I am glad to be a Mormon and I am proud to be a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a mission in Sweden.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Grant White
No, it is up to the individual if he or she wants to serve a mission. Young men are encouraged to serve missions and young women can also serve if they desire. There are also senior missionaries who are retired couples who choose to serve a mission together. The church needs missionaries to help spread the gospel, but members are not required to serve a mission. Show more Show less
