Hi I'm Kolten

I grew up in Texas. Played soccer all my life. Recently called to serve in the Hermosillo, Mexico mission, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 18 years old, middle child of 5 kids, and leaving for the Hermosillo, Mexico mission on January 20th, 2016. All my life I have participated in all sports. I love to go on vacations with my family. College football is better than the NFL. I love learning new things and meeting new people. In my free time I like to hike, do something active, and spend time with my friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because of the happiness I feel living this gospel. I have a strong testimony of Christs Atonement he made for us, through his sacrifice we can live with Heavenly Father again. I strive to keep the commandments and follow the words of the modern day prophet. I am grateful that through this gospel families can be together forever. The church has blessed my life in so many ways, I don't know what I would do without it.

How I live my faith

Every Wednesday night I go to youth group with the kids in my church (ages 12-18). During these nights there are different events centered around our gospel. Also the past four years I had the chance to participate in something called Seminary. It is a program to where High School aged kids go every morning before school and learn and study the scriptures.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

A testimony is a spiritual witness given to someone by the Holy Ghost. Each individual testimony is different from another, but most revolve around the same topics. These are that Heavenly Father lives and loves us; Jesus Christ lives, and is the son of God; that Jesus Christ carried out the Atonement so that way me way live with Heavenly Father again; that Joseph Smith was a true prophet called by god to restore Jesus Christ's church to the earth; and that we are led by a living prophet today. I know all of these things to be true and have had different experiences to proclaim to me that these are all true. This gospel truly has blessed my life and I am glad to be a Mormon.
