Hi I'm Harrison Mayer

Born to a convert father and a member mother. Excited to be here in the best mission in the world... BERLIN, GERMANY!

About Me

Guten Tag! I've lived my entire life in Utah, but for the next two years I'll be in Germany! I love to mountain bike, hike, swim, camp and pretty much anything else outdoors. I've competed in varsity soccer and track for my high school and practiced martial arts for several years! I will attend Brigham Young University upon my return and look forward to serving my country as a military officer. I'm a bit of a geek when it comes to science (especially space. heh.) and history! Soooo... that's me!

Why I am a Mormon

Though I was born into the LDS church I had to decide for myself if it was something that I truly believed in. We cannot always rely on the testimony of our parents! For most of my life I have known the Church is good, but it took awhile for me to know it was true. I finally realized that I needed to pray with a sincere heart if I wished to know the if the LDS faith was the true church of God.To pray with a sincere heart means that you WILL act on the answer you receive - no matter how difficult it may be. You cannot act only if you receive the answer you want. For me, the confirmation that this is the true Church came not through angels or visions, but rather the feelings I have when I talk of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

This is actually a hard question. It's fairly easy to rattle off some general statement and move on. Living your faith cannot really be nailed down to any one specific activity. True, activities like attending church and staying current on hometeaching promote living your faith, but it doesn't really answer the question. Living your faith is a mindset. It's the way you conduct yourself in your day to day activities. For me, living my faith means that I am mentally disciplined. It means that I strive to uplift and help everyone around me. It means that I constantly try to live my life like Jesus Christ.
