Hi I'm Austin

I grew up in Indiana and developed a love for basketball. I now live in Colorado. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I played 4 sports in high school. I'm very sports minded especially in basketball. I have coached junior high basketball and worked in construction. I enjoy movies, going to sporting events, playing sports, and making jokes out of thin air. I'm currently serving as a missionary in the California Carlsbad Mission. April 2015 - April 2017.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I asked myself if Joseph Smith is special enough to receive an answer from God, am I not special enough to receive an answer from him as well? So I prayed to God and asked him if he is real and if I'm in the right church, and if i'm not in the right church, which church is best for me. The next Sunday I felt his love for me and I will never forget what I felt. The members of the church are also very kind and I feel comfortable around them.The standards of the church make sense to me. I can see why I'm told not to participate in certain practices of the world.

How I live my faith

I pray daily and read scriptures at least once a week. I attend church to learn more about God and Jesus Christ and how to improve myself to become a better a person.
