Hi I'm Christian Whitaker

Grew up in Utah, Love music & sports, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love music! Music has a powerful impact in my life, couldn't live without it. Growing up, I attended several different schools and got use to being "the new guy". So I had to learn real quick how to put myself out there and make friends! Having a sense of humor goes a long way. I love meeting and talking to new people. I love sports - particularly football and baseball. I play guitar and sing!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because this Christs church. I was born into the church, but when I was 16 I decided I needed to know for myself. I prayed to Heavenly Father with a sincere heart and asked him if this was his Gospel, If The Book of Mormon is true, If Joseph Smith is a prophet, If He has called a prophet and works through him on this earth today and He answered me. A very strong feeling of peace, love and happiness came over me. That was the Holy Ghost. I feel that peace and joy everyday as a missionary, good or bad day. I can never deny what I know, because the more I keep the commandments, pray and study the scriptures, I see Heavenly Father blessing my life and the Holy Ghost testifies the truth to me. I know where I came from, where I am going and why I am here. In times of trial, I look to Jesus Christ and he gives me strength, He knows what I'm going through because he personally suffered for my sins as well as everyone else. He knows what you are going through. You can feel that love and know the truth of it this church by reading The Book of Mormon. God gave us another testament of Jesus Christ for these last days because He knows how hard it is, the world is falling apart, that there are many different church's and opinions, there is so much confusion. Heavenly Father is certainly aware of us and wants to bless us. Because of His gospel me and my family are safe and uninfluenced by the power of the adversary as we stay true to our faith. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I know it's true. I couldn't settle for less.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a missionary in the Bismarck ND mission! It's really amazing to have the opportunity to share my faith and build others faith. To have the opportunity to change lives and bring others unto Him, i couldn't be more thankful. It would be difficult to describe the tender mercys I've seen and i can honestly say I love this work. I've looked to serve others and be a friend. I've seen lives completely change for the better because of faith. I'm blessed to be here and have this purpose, I'm blessed to have this Gospel and to have the privilege to bring this life changing message to people. There's nowhere else I'd rather be. I know Heavenly Father is supporting me and loves me and that through daily repentance my relationship with my Savior grows. The Holy Ghost testifies to me everyday, I am truly happy.
