Hi I'm Cole Frandsen

I play soccer. I'm a classical singer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving as a missionary in the Adriatic North mission, speaking Slovenian, Croatian, and Serbian. The languages are difficult, the work is hard, but the blessings are worth every second! I sing classical music, play the piano, and love playing and watching soccer.

Why I am a Mormon

The Gospel of Jesus Christ has always been a guide in my life. The joy of constantly growing to know Jesus Christ is indescribable. He is my Savior and Redeemer; the one who gives me hope. I know that through Him, we have the chance of eternal life with our Heavenly Father. His sacrifice was one of complete love and it was for every child of God. I know His Church and His Gospel lives in our day, and I know of its restoration by the prophet, Joseph Smith. Joseph Smith saw God, the Father, and His Son, Jesus Christ. He restored the power of the priesthood, and the keys thereof. Through this, we have complete assurance that, through the atonement of Jesus Christ and obedience to His commandments, we can live eternally, exalted on high. This is why I am a member of this, His Church. The glory of our Savior, Jesus Christ, is everlasting and joyous. It exists for every person no matter their background, race, or circumstance. His love extends to each of us in every hour of our lives, and will ever remain my guide, and my example.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trusting in the Lord, Jesus Christ, and in those who are called by Him to lead His Church, and by trying my best to obey His commandments. I try and live my life in a way that is pleasing to the Savior, Jesus Christ. In doing our best to heed His teachings and the teachings of His authorized representatives, we draw nearer to Christ and we find our lives taking a positive turn onto a path full of happiness and blessings.

What is faith?

Cole Frandsen
Faith is the belief that, in moments of utter despair and sorrow, you have not been abandoned by God. It is the belief that our Heavenly Father will deliver you from your pains and trials, yet it is also the belief that if he does not do so - as it may seem - you are still under the direction of his divine plan. His omniscience guides you throughout your days as you keep your faith in him. Show more Show less
