Hi I'm Zachary

i was born and raised in kitsap county of Washington state. I am a Mormon. I love life and love enjoying peoples company.

About Me

I was born 1992 on February 13th to a loving mother and father. My father was in the military at the time but was discharged shortly after. growing up i had a very active imagination, i would go explore the woods around my house with a stick and pretend i was in a movie like lord of the rings or some mythical land. i enjoy playing paintball, snowboarding, and play almost any sport just for fun. i am a photography enthusiast, i like doing candid portraits and nature pictures. i enjoy learning new things about anything. i am a laid back and easy going guy who enjoys living each day,

Why I am a Mormon

i was born in the church and was raised in the teachings of the gospel. growing up my parents always pushed me to go to church and do things with the church, but when i was 18 i decided i didn't want to go to church anymore. between the age of 18 and 22 i fell into some bad habits that took over my life, and i just wasn't happy. just before my 22 birthday my father passed away. my mother was the one who found him and i was the first boy to get back to them. i was completely devastated for about 3 minutes, at that point i felt this warm feeling around me and this little voice saying " Zachary, i am ok. i am no longer in pain, and everything will be fine." at that point everything that my parents had taught me came rushing back to my mind like a flood. i'm sad to say that i didn't right away go to my bishop and start the repentance process, like i said the bad habits i had really took over my life. a few months later i did go speak with my bishop to start the repentance process. after i had and had begun the repentance process i felt like ten thousand pounds had been lifted from my shoulders and my eyes had been open. that is when i had truly felt Heavenly Father's love for me personally. as i studied and began to try and strengthen my relationship with him my life became a beautiful struggle. i know that Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ love me and every single person on earth. i know that Joseph Smith was the first prophet of this dispensation and restored the true and full gospel to the earth. i know that Thomas S Monson is the current prophet of god. i know that he and the twelve apostles receive revelation for our current generation directly from Heavenly Father. i know that through the atonement of Jesus Christ anyone can repent and be forgiven of there sins. i love the gospel of Jesus Christ and am truly grateful for the changes it has made in my life. that is why i am a Mormon

How I live my faith

i live my faith by thanking my Heavenly Father each day for the wonderful opportunity to live another day on this beautiful earth. i live my faith by letting my light shine among my brothers and sisters. i live my faith by going to the individuals and families that i home teach and make sure that they are taken care of physically, emotionally, and spiritually. i live my faith by praying to my Heavenly Father daily to counsel with him and express the desires of my heart and read his holy scriptures.
