Hi I'm Chris

I grew up in Provo Utah. I enjoy doing service and connecting with those I help because we are all God's children. I'm a Mormon!!!

About Me

I have recently been accepted to BYU as an incoming freshmen, but I have deferred for the next two years while I am on my mission. I am currently on a mission to serve in Fukuoka Japan. I'm very excited to be able to teach the people of Japan, and I hope I will be able to become a tool in the Lord's hands in helping to spread the gospel. Outside of school I enjoy doing service, and helping those who are my spiritual brothers and sisters. I recently had the oppurtunity to be able to go to the Native American Nation of the Hopi down in Arizona. I was able to serve the Hopi people I came to learn of the love God has for each of his children.

Why I am a Mormon

Life is a menace and it will beat you to your knees and keep going if you let it. Everyone exeriences hard times and no one is void of past sins and mistakes. But through the Atonement of Jesus Christ we can be free of the guilt of those past mistakes. When Life comes around, if you fight it on your knees praying to your Heavenly Father for help, you will win everytime. The Gospel of Jesus Christ has brought true and lasting happiness to my life and although I have far from everything, I have the gospel and that is all I need to continue to progress. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and my brother and that I can be perfected through his Grace. I know my Heavenly Father loves me, and that I can weather every storm with him on my side. I know that Joseph Smith was a Prophet and that he restored the truth to this Earth. I know that if I and anyone else follows this restored gospel, we will find happiness in this life and in the life to come.

How I live my faith

I enjoy living my faith as a spiritual warrior. With a constant increase of negative influences in the world, I fear not enough people stand up for God and what is right. By doing things as simple as bearing testimony to my friends and classmates of the reality of God and his plan of happiness for us, I hope to be that spirtitual warrior that stands against the world when everything else would say to fall. I strive to live as an example of Christ in all things, helping to spread his message through action and lifestyle. I glory not in myself but in my God, because I know I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
