Hi I'm Spencer

I grew up on southern California, then moved to Utah to attend Brigham Young University. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am an Electrical Engineering student at Brigham Young University, and I will be serving a mission in the England London mission from May, 2015 to May 2017. I am an avid amateur radio operator, and I have had my license since 2007. I have taken piano lessons from age eight. Piano has been something I use to help me relax.

Why I am a Mormon

Like a lot of members, I was born into the Church, baptized at age eight, and so on. I have always been active, but probably not as much as I should have been. It wasn't until my first year of college that I truly understood why I am a Mormon. This year of college was the hardest time in my life up to that point. I took way too many credits, was constantly stressed out, and at times it all seemed too much. I truly learned what it meant to put faith in the Lord that everything would work out, and it did. If it wasn't for sincere prayer in humility, I'm not sure I would have made it. There were times when I felt completely hopeless about deadlines, my grades, and my future, but I always found a way to push through. I relied heavily on, and I have a testimony of, the healing power of music. Being able to listen to and play wholesome music helped me press on through some of my darkest times. Being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has helped me to understand and believe the gospel of Jesus Christ, just as He taught. I have a testimony that the Book of Mormon is true, and that the sweet messages it contains can help anyone through the challenges that mortal life brings.

How I live my faith

The LDS church has a strong emphasis on emergency preparedness, and I use my skills with amateur radio to help. We conduct weekly training exercises to help us prepare to provide aid during an emergency.
