Hi I'm Hunter

I have been raised in Texas for most of my life. I love to play sports. I am am a pretty normal guy, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love music, whether it ranges from singing, or playing the piano. I also like to play basketball and be part of the Track team in my school. So far, I have only been able to be a part of the Track team in school, and I am one of my school's Discus throwers. Despite having the body of a Jock, I love to read and that is one of my favorite hobbies. I have also been a lifelong Boy Scout and really enjoy camping. I have lived in Texas for around 3/4ths of my life, but consider myself a Texan for life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that the Gospel of Christ is true and that it has been restored in its fullness by Joseph Smith. I have had many difficult times in my life, but I know that given time, anyone can overcome any challenge. That is the joy that the Atonement of Christ brings, because Christ payed the debt that we all have to pay, and we can overcome all things with His help. I know that His Atonement helps us and that we can always look to Christ for Help. I also know that Joseph Smith restored the fullness of the Gospel on the Earth and that when we pray, our prayers will be answered, but not always in the way we expect. I know this is true and I testify this to you with all my heart.

How I live my faith

I am a 3rd generation Mormon in my moms side of the family and a 6th generation on my dad's side. Even though I was raised in the church all my life and believed in the church, I did not get a real, strong, and firm testimony of it until I was 14. I had a Burning sensation in my chest that I could not deny when I was in a class that taugh about Christ. It made me want to cry of joy (which I did). From that moment on, I KNEW with a surety that the Gospel of Christ is true and that He loves us and wants us to return and live with him. Because of this experience, I want to share what I have learned with those I meet. After all, we must love our fellow men like we love ouselves, so I want to share my knowledge with all people, so all can know what I had the opportunity to learn. I Know this to be true.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Hunter
The Book of Mormon is an ancient record of people in the Americas who saw Christ and testify of Him in the Book. It is another witness that Christ really lives and is God's Son. The records were written by Prophets in the New World. One of these Prophets was called Lehi, and he lived in Jerusalem around 600 BC, but led a group of people out of Jerusalem because the people there were wicked and evil. This group of people built a ship and sailed to the Americas, where they became a mighty civilization. The records of this civilization were written by Prophets in the Americas. The Book of Mormon is composed of those writtings, which were compiled by Mormon, one of the last ancient prophets. These ancient Prophets knew God's plan for his children and the mission of Jesus Christ. They also recorded in the Book of Mormon Christ's visit to the Americas after His Resurrection as well as His teachings. The book supports and verifies the Bible. The Book of Mormon concludes with a promise that those who read and sincerely pray about its can know "by the power of the Holy Ghost" that it is true (Moroni 10:4-5). Show more Show less
