Hi I'm Zachary Whitby

I lived on a family farm in Washington. Love to play sports and playing outside. I am on my mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My hobbies are sports of any kind but I love to play football and basketball the most. I have played football all my life and played mostly quarterback and free safety, and for basketball. Sports are my life but I also love to work outside because I lived on a family farm for all of my life, I wouldn't trade it for the world because I was truly blessed to live on a farm where i would work with a lot of family members. I was born into the church and am truly grateful that I have because it helped me to mature at a young age and by doing that i was given responsibility as a young child. It also helps that i also grew up on a farm. This church has truly blessed my family and i because living on a farm can be dangerous and hectic and we have no deaths while farm or anyone getting severely hurt. I am glad to be a Mormon

Why I am a Mormon

The reason why I am a Mormon because I have found that living the gospel the very best i can bring the most happiness in my life. Like i said earlier I was born and baptized into the church and didn't really apply the teachings that were being taught at the time, until my freshman year in high school. I had the opportunity of having the chance to take seminary which from the sounds of it wasn't really exciting. Then I met Bishop Peterson, he is the man that inspired me to live the gospel and apply to it my life. I was so happy all the time when he finally helped me understand and apply the gospel and I am truly grateful for having him as a teacher .

How I live my faith

How I have lived my faith is by going on a mission which is right now for another 17 months, we are called to serve for 2 years if you are a boy and 18 if you are a girl. If I wasn't a Mormon I would most likely not be where I am now. So that is one way I show my faith.

What is being a Mormon like?

Zachary Whitby
A great reason why I love being a Mormon is because I know that I will live with my family for time and all eternity because my parents are members and were sealed in the Portland Oregon Temple. It just makes me feel really special to know that i will be with them forever! They mean the world to me and I love them very much! Show more Show less
