Hi I'm Seth Roberts Boyce

My name is Seth Boyce I was born in Salt Lake city Utah. I know live in Idaho. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have two older brothers, and I have one younger sister named. When I was born I had a heart problem, my aorta and my pulmonary valve were switched. I had months to live because I was not getting proper oxygen. I was lucky to live through that by my dad giving me a blessing which is something we do in our church if someone is sick or needs comfort. With the blessing my dad gave me I was able to have a great surgery and be here today. I am on my LDS mission right now In Independence Missouri Spanish speaking, but in high school I wrestled and played ultimate Frisbee. I picked up wrestling my sophomore year in high school and was able to go to state twice. My team for wrestling were ranked 49th in the nation and we were able to win back to back state championships! We also broke a record in Idaho for most points scored at State. My Frisbee team was also good placing 4th in the State my junior year. I love being able to play sports and being able to use the talents I have and sharing them. I have also played the piano for close to 9 years and love playing it when I get a chance.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love this Gospel! The gospel has brought me such joy in my life by helping me in trials. The LDS or Mormon community is really a big family, if someone is struggling in their lives people in the church do there best effort to help that person out they best they can. I have met all my friends through the church. My friends and I have helped each other stick to the standards of the gospel by not drinking or doing drugs of any sort. A lot of people think that Mormons are very strict in not doing anything "fun" but since we do not participate in drinking or looking at pornography that is why we are so happy. I love this gospel it has brought me such happiness in my life. I am glad I know the Book of Mormon to be true. I know that families can be together forever through Gods plan. I know God knows us personally and if you have a question and pray to him with a sincere heart and real intent he will answer your questions, because he has done it with me.

How I live my faith

I was born in the church. I have been raised up, and from an early age I gained a testimony of this gospel of knowing that this is the true gospel. I live my faith by serving my mission. A mission is when you leave your family for 2 years and are able to teach the gospel to people that haven't heard it.
