Hi I'm Seth

I was born and raised in Huntsville, Alabama. Music is my tool for inspiration. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in the South but I'm a huge city person. I love urban environments. I played soccer most of my life but I always had a deep interest in music. I joined the band in middle school and was involved in that throughout both middle and high school. I played percussion and I self-taught myself to play the piano. I'm also a working person. I had a job throughout most of high school. I also lived in Shanghai, China for 2 years with my parents. It was the most adventurous experience of my life so far. I'm thankful to have been born and raised in a Mormon family. The lessons and examples my parents taught me made me the person I am today.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised as a Mormon. Even though I was baptized at 8 years old, I was still going by my parents' testimonies. Whenever I followed God's commandments and lived the laws of the Gospel, I always seemed more... at peace. I never really questioned the church until I was a teenager. I started questioning things about the Plan of Salvation and the story of Joseph Smith because I had faced opposing opinions from other people about these subjects. I decided to pray about it. As a Mormon, praying is vital to communicating with our Heavenly Father. For some reason, I never prayed much. It would always be about a specific test as school or when I was having a rough time, I would pray for comfort. I decided to start praying more about my questions. As I was praying, I would get a calming feeling in my body and for me, that was my answer. Ever since then, I've known that this church is true. The main way I feel the Spirit is through music. The basis of my testimony was built through music and I plan on giving people the same experience I went through.

How I live my faith

I just became an Elder in the church and I don't have a calling right now. Whenever there is a chance to help out a family in the ward, I try my best to help. I go out home teaching with my companion every month. I participate in YSA and Elder's Quorum activities. I also go out with the missionaries sometimes to teach local investigators. When I was in my youth, I was the first assistant to the Bishop while I was in Priest Quorum. I also went to seminary for all 4 years of high school.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

The purpose of missionaries is to spread the Gospel to every person who is ready to receive it. Show more Show less
