Hi I'm Porter Colt Button

I am from Louisville Kentucky. I love to be active and in the outdoors. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I love to be active and test the limits of my body and mind. I am an avid hunter and fisherman. I love to be at the range and shoot guns and I love to exercise. I leave on September 2, 2015 to go to Tampico Mexico for a 2 year mission trip.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon all my life growing up but I was not always the most active and I didn't have a testimony of the church and if it was Christ's church or not until I was a junior in high school. My dad was not always active in the church through my life but he started to come back around the time I was 16 and that made the biggest difference in my life. As he came back and started living the principles of the gospel and setting that example of a righteous man the attitude in our house changed. Our home was a place of peace and a place where you could feel the spirit of the Lord. I wanted to be like him and have that peace in my life and be a good example to others. I started to read The Book Of Mormon and to pray to know if it was true and if this was Christ's church established on the earth today. On the winter break of my junior year me and a buddy went to his grandparents cabin for the week to hunt. When Sunday rolled around I decided to stay in and read while he went out hunting. I sat up in the loft for hours with my scriptures not being able to put them down. I was overcome with peace and assurance that the book I was reading was true. I had listened to the words of my father and took them to the Lord to pray to know whether they were true, just as Enos had done in The Book Of Mormon. If it was not for my Dad and his righteous example to me, I would not be where I am today. I would not be going on a mission, and I would not have the joy that I do today. Prayer is real. You can communicate with your Father in heaven and he will give you an answer. He will give you the correct answer because our Father in heaven is perfect and will not lie.

How I live my faith

I love to talk to others about the Church whether its about my mission that I will soon be leaving on or any questions they have for me about the church. I currently help teach the young men on Sundays and am one of their leaders. I go on campouts with them and any other activities they have.
