Hi I'm Atraue

I'm an only child. I'm an amateur bodybuilder. I love Latin dance. Oh and I'm Mormon

About Me

In high school I focused on academics, however the last year and a half I have tried to explore the world outside of my small town. I love trying new things. I study electrical engineering in university, but I am going to spend the next two years serving a mission for the church. Since my childhood, I have the had the absence of a father in my life. My mom raised me with the help of my grandparents. It hasn't always been easy, but because of my unique situation, I've been given the opportunity to look to other people as role models. While many people might idolize celebrities, singers, actors or sports stars for their impressive talents or feats, I try to look up to people who make a change in the world. I know nothing that deserves any amount of respect higher than those who selflessly serve others. Out of all the people I look up to, truly my greatest role model is Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I've been a Mormon ever since a young age, but it was a choice that I made for myself. I was baptized right before I turned twelve years old. It took a leap of faith, but I was willing to commit to something that I knew in my heart was right. Baptism is an outward expression of inner change. An initial inner change is important, but even more important is having a willingness to change all throughout one's life. Over the last many years, I have tried to follow in the footsteps of Jesus Christ. In the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we believe that comes through faith, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost and enduring to the end. Enduring to the end is a wonderful principle. It means living a Christ-like life until the day one dies. We believed we are saved through the grace of Jesus Christ, after doing all that we can do. The activeness of the Mormon faith is a testimony to me of its validity. In addition, I have seen the peace and prosperity in one's life that comes from following the teachings found in the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. I would like to bear witness to you, I know the Christ of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is Jesus Christ's restored church upon the earth today. There is only way one can truly know and that is through prayer and a confirmation by the Holy Spirit.

How I live my faith

Integrity. Although seen synonymous as honesty, I find integrity as so much more. It's one thing to say something, but it's an entirely different thing to practice what you preach. Integrity can be seen as consistency, as a willingness to stick to the standard of morals and beliefs. that one accepts. I am not perfect, don't get me wrong, but I had tried to make integrity an integral part of all aspects of my life, including in religion. It's a difficult to live in a two lifestyle world. It's much easier to pick one path and follow it. I practice the beliefs of my religion every single day. It starts with a prayer on my knees in the morning and ends with a prayer on my knees at night, but it is so much more than prayer. It is a commitment to living as God would have me live. It's a commitment to loving others as myself. It's a willingness to have a smile on my face, to be humble and listen to people's opinions, to ask others about their day, to see someone in need and help them. It's a desire to choose a higher standard of living in the world, to avoid music with meaningless lyrics, watch wholesome movies that uplift, and work with my own hands. It's an attitude as well as a lifestyle.
