Hi I'm Collin Ballou

I grew up in New York. I spend a lot of time with my family, working on computers, or various outdoor activities. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I will be serving my mission shortly, and then I will be attending a college for Computer Science / Software Engineering. I somehow find the time to get outdoors and go on mini adventures in my spare time. I look forward to getting married and being a respectable father for my children just as Heavenly Father is for us.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because through all my trials I am able to feel God's love through the power of The Holy Ghost acting in my life. I feel an overwhelming sense of comfort and joy when I am able to hear His spirit. I had been to many congregations of other faiths and had not been able to feel the spirit so strongly as I do each Sunday when I am able to partake of sacrament which was blessed with the true power and authority of the priesthood.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through daily scripture study and prayer, kindness, and willingness to serve. I'm preparing now for a mission so I may teach the gospel to anyone in need (all who inquire, as it may be).
