Hi I'm Colten

I grew up in Utah. I love to have fun. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy spending time in the mountains! I don't care what I am doing there really, just getting away and relaxing is really nice. I also really enjoy sports; golf and basketball mostly. I am not super competitive, I just like having fun. Video games are also fun to play with friends in my free time.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love serving other people and feeling God's love for them. Being a Mormon gives me many opportunities to serve other people, whether they share my beliefs or not. It really helps me to feel closer to those people I am surrounded by as well as feeling closer to God.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing those things I am expected to do. For example, I am currently serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. For two years I am going to be away from my family and friends to serve others. I also do simple things like; going to church every Sunday, studying the scriptures daily, and praying multiple times a day to communicate with my Father in Heaven.

Who was Joseph Smith?

Colten
Joseph Smith Jr. was born in 1805 and had 10 brothers and sisters. Their parents taught them to believe in God, pray, and read the scriptures. When Joseph was 14 years old he saw God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ who answered his honest prayer. When he was 17 he received visits from heavenly messengers who prepared him to do his part in restoring the Church of Jesus Christ to the earth. Joseph Smith was a prophet, called of God, just like Abraham, Moses, and others. Show more Show less
