Hi I'm Zac

I'm an aspiring aspirer, I love to make people laugh, I love my mommy, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

First and foremost, I love America. I also love bacon, but that was implied when I said I love America. I've been a Mormon since the day I came forth from the womb; but I'm still learning. Like most everyone else, I love music. That's why when I grow up I'm going to be a rockstar. I also enjoy many other non-unique things like sports, outdoor activities, traveling, and eating food.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to parents who were members of the church, so I have been in the church all my life. I feel that I am extremely lucky to have been blessed with this privilege. But regardless, I believe that all people get to a point (whether a lifelong member, or convert) where their faith is put to the test. That has certainly happened to me, and such experiences have made me appreciate the profound blessing it was to be born into Christ's church. I love the safety and security of heart that I have because of my testimony of the Book of Mormon and everything that testimony implies.

How I live my faith

So part of the ordinance of baptism is a covenant that we make with God to do a few things. We promise God that we will take upon ourselves the name of his son Jesus Christ, that we will always remember Jesus Christ, and that we will keep his commandments. When I say that I will take upon myself the name of Jesus Christ, that means that I would act as he would act if he were here. It really gives meaning to that age-old question "what would Jesus do?". Always remembering Jesus helps me to make good choices, and also helps me fulfill the first part (taking his name upon me). By keeping gods commandments, and honoring the covenant I made with him at baptism, he blesses me in all sorts of ways; and it also gives me hope that I will make it back to him and gain eternal life.
