Hi I'm Hans Garrett Peterson

Hi, I'm Hans. I'm 18 years old at the time. I grew up in Annis, Idaho. I have one older brother, and one younger sister.

About Me

My favorite color is green. I love computers. I know a lot about them - I program and fix them. I think I've been a computer "addict" since the age of three. I also like any sport. Soccer is, by far, my favorite one to play however.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I studied the Book of Mormon and came to know of its truth. Yes, I was born into a Mormon family - but that didn't mean anything until I sought out the truth for myself. I think if I was born anywhere else, and were desperate enough, I would have found the church and its teachings. One important thing about the LDS church is it expects its members to gain insight on its teachings for themselves - as Joseph Smith did - and develop a testimony through meaningful prayer.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following God's commandments. Following both the book guidelines - and doing all that Prophets and Apostles teach us is the only way we can strive for eternal perfection. So this is my goal - do everything that the Lord says, no matter how hard, emotional or embarrassing those things may be.
