Hi I'm Seth

I'm a rock climber from Monument, Colorado; I'm going to serve a mission in Baltimore, Maryland for 2 years; and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Orem, Utah but have lived in Monument, Colorado almost my whole life. I'm an avid rock climber, longboarder, pianist, and drummer. I've been rock climbing the past 3 years, longboarding the past 4, playing drums the past 6, and playing piano the past 10. I'm going to be serving a 2 year mission in the Maryland Baltimore Mission starting in December 2015. I have received my Duty to God and Eagle Scout, and would like to attend BYU to become an engineer.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this church, but I have stayed in the church because of the testimonies I have gained. All the experiences I've had have helped me to understand that the Gospel we teach is the true and full gospel of Jesus Christ. I have a testimony of Jesus Christ and of the redeeming power of the Atonement. I know that repentance works and have seen it work in my life. I have a testimony of Joseph Smith, and of the First Vision in the Sacred Grove. I know that he was a prophet of the Lord and that he, through the Spirit, translated the Book of Mormon for our day. I know that Thomas Spencer Monson is the prophet today, and receives revelation for the members of the church to guide us and tell us what the Lord would have us do. I love the gospel; I love the Holy Ghost; I love Jesus Christ, our Savior; I love the Lord; and I love being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

How I live my faith

I have been active in my church by having served in Boy Scout positions as well as in other Youth Committees. I currently am a hometeacher and a Priesthood holder and am preparing to serve my mission. I have also been a presenter on Social Media at Family History Day events for the past 2 years. I am currently serving a two year mission in the Baltimore, Maryland area.
