Hi I'm Clay

I grew up in Washington, graduated in 2015, prospered (and prosper) in theatre, and I will serve the Florida Orlando mission.

About Me

I am serving in the Florida Orlando Mission. I was very active in my high school theatre program during my Junior and Senior year working on crew, the cast, and as a director and writer. My best memories of high school were made in the auditorium doing something theatre related, and I don't intend to quit the stage. I also play clarinet for band, create in video production (occasionally uploading to my YouTube channel), and I was (and wish I still was) involved in horticulture in my Sophomore year, which was the highlight of that year. I've taken three years of French class and many AP classes. My favorite AP class by far was AP Literature & Composition, where I re-learned the value of a good book, and discovered some of my favorite stories. And despite how amazing high school's been for me, I'm glad to say I'm through with it.

Why I am a Mormon

I've been in the church since I was born, and my testimony was built in bits and pieces throughout my childhood and reaffirmed and strengthened (as well as continually added to) in recent years. I know for a fact that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the only true church of God and His Son, Jesus Christ. All of its teachings, such as its emphasis on the Book of Mormon as the greatest source of true Doctrine available and our belief in and need for Prophets today as we continually build up the church and prepare to return to our loving God in Heaven. I bear testimony of these things in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

How I live my faith

Along with going to church for three hours each week, I go to youth activities as often as I see fit (less often now unfortunately, since I've been so busy) which include helping out with Boy Scout activities, doing service projects, and my favorite, going to the temple, which I feel so very lucky to live close to. As I've mentioned elsewhere in my profile, I'm going to serve a two year mission for this church in Orlando, Florida starting in August.
