Hi I'm Spencer

I am born and raised in the Heber Valley in the Wasatch Mountains, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have lived in the Heber Valley my whole life and am surrounded by natural beauty that I am so grateful for. I love to fish, hunt, dirt bike, and do all sorts of outdoor things with my friends and family. All of my family is big into sports, and my two younger brothers and I have been heavily involved in wrestling. I myself was an High School All-American, and it seems that my whole life I have been going around the country participating in Freestyle, Greco, and Folkstyle tournaments. I also had the opportunity to wrestle in the Pan-American Games in Recife, Brazil. I have committed to wrestle at Utah Valley University, after completing my mission in the Summer of 2017. I am excited for this opportunity to continue to do the sport that I love, and also to be able to receive a somewhat affordable education because of it, and also to be able to live near and enjoy the beautiful blessings of my home.

Why I am a Mormon

I have Pioneer roots on both sides of my family: my great great great Grandfather was baptized after listening to Joseph Smith, and I had ancestors immigrate from Scotland so they could join the saints here in Utah. I have been raised in a fairly strong Mormon home, but I have learned for myself that this is the true church on the earth today. I used to 'ride' on the testimony of my parents, but about when I turned 16 I was really starting to question what my parents had been teaching me my whole life. I have read the Book of Mormon, cover to cover. And I have prayed and asked my Father in Heaven if it is true, and I know that it IS the word of God. I have learned for myself that the Atonement is a very real and that it applies to every aspect of our lives. If we utilize it, we can be forgiven of our sins, but it can also be used to make every aspect of our live, for lack of a better word, better. Look up Jeffery R. Holland's talk this most recent General Conference, April of 2015. This talk built up my testimony of the Atonement quite a bit. Anybody who needs further motivation, or who feel like something is missing from their life, look up this talk. Jeffery R. Holland, April 2015.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by participating in the callings in which I have been called. I was just released from the presidency of my youth quorum, where under the advisement of adults, we ran our own ship. I have received my mission call to Salem, Oregon, and am doing all I can to prepare myself for that endeavor. It hasn't been easy, getting myself to be worthy to go, but I like where I'm at now, and am striving to further enlarge my testimony of this gospel and the truths that it holds.
