Hi I'm Austin

I love to laugh. I love to serve. I love my church. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am college student studying mechanical engineering. I love international affairs and relations, and I am a part of my university's Model United Nations team. I play soccer but not competitively anymore, because I tore my ACL, MCL, and lateral meniscus during my sophomore year in high school. Chelsea FC is my favorite soccer team, and I love sitting down and watching them play in the Premier League. I would love to travel, and I plan to travel once I graduate. I would really enjoy going to Europe and seeing all the history of that continent. I would also like to learn and become fluent in Spanish. Lastly, although I have had my fair share of trials, with depression and my diagnosis of OCD being a few, the Lord has helped me through them all. I am currently serving a mission in Washington State, and I am teaching in the Spanish language before I return to my studies.

Why I am a Mormon

I know without a doubt this church is true. There are so many good people in this church that you can not help but feel the Spirit. The Spirit is the way I have come to know that this gospel is the Lord's true church upon the Earth. If you honestly want to find out if this church is true and you ask with an open heart, I testify that the Spirit will come and you will feel in your heart that it is true. You will learn the truth in this church as you honestly try to find out.

How I live my faith

I have served in leadership positions throughout my growth in the church. I have loved the opportunity to serve the people and my Lord. I try to serve people wherever I go. Whether it is a simple conversation to moving people out, I try to serve people in whatever regard I can to be more Christ-like in my life. Charity is the pure love of Christ, and our church emphasizes this. I also try to be an example to others. I do not drink alcohol, smoke, or do drugs. I try to show people that you do not need those things to have fun. I do not cheat or other immoral things. I try to lead people to the right choices that will better their lives. I try to be a light for others to follow and change their own lives.
