Hi I'm Gideon

I grew up in Utah, and I love singing, acting, playing instruments, composing music and telling jokes. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Gideon, and music has always been a part of my life. Ever since I could talk I've been singing with my family. We sing everything from barbershop arrangements to a capella arrangements of pop music. I have learned to play piano, guitar, and ukulele (in that order), and have composed silly songs. Throughout High School and Middle School I have participated in school theatrical productions including musicals and non-musicals. I also love to make people laugh. I hope singing, acting, and comedy will always be a part of my life, but I am currently looking into possible career opportunities such as engineering. I love reading books, learning, and I absolutely love this Gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because this Gospel brings so much happiness to my life. I know that this church is true. I have felt it. I know that families can be together for ever, and that every person here on earth is loved by our Savior, Jesus Christ. I know these things are true. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet. I know that all who seek to know whether these things are true can discover for themselves that they are true. Above all, I know that Jesus Christ lives, loves us , and has atoned for our sins. I know that through this Atonement, we can become the people we desire to be. And because I know these things, I cannot deny them, nor would I ever want to, for they have brought great joy into my life, and this I say in the name of Jesus Christ. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints my entire life, and I love it. I have had the privilege to serve several callings throughout my years, mostly within youth presidencies. I have also spent some time as pianist and chorister, and have been a part of directing church-related youth camps and have been on youth councils. I love being able to serve in the church and to be a part of the Lord's work here on the Earth. As I have mentioned, I love music and jump at every opportunity to use my musical abilities to serve the Lord. I recently have been called to serve as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Washington, Tacoma mission for two years. I am so excited!
