About Me

I am 6 feet 6 inches tall, and love to play basketball. I also play the cello, and love classical music. I have a college scholarship playing the cello. I love to explore the out doors looking for cool rocks for my rock collection. I come from A family of wood bow archers, my dad builds wood bows, and use to shoot for distance competitively.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in The Church of Jesus Christ of latter-Day Saints (Mormons). At 8 years old I was asked if I wanted to be baptized I said yes, and was interviewed by my bishop. My parents never forced anything on be, and it was my decision. There is a scripture in the book of mormon thats says you should learn in thy youth to keep the commandments of God. As I have grown up in the church I have learned a lot of doctrine from, both the Book of Mormon, and the Holy Bible. At 13 years old I met at a scout camp a man who was very Christ like, and took a lot of interest in me as an individual. He shared his testimony of Jesus Christ, and how he had lived a very rough life growing up. He told me how important Christ was to him, and this planted a seed in my heart. From there on I have grown, and Developed a strong testimony of Jesus Christ. I have read the book of mormon a couple times, and have seen that second witness of Jesus Christ in that book. Learning about Joseph Smith, and the life he lived I learned he was a man with a lot of flaws, but did every thing he could, and even was killed trying to do what the lord has commanded him. After reading the book of Mormon, and Learning about Joseph Smith I knew that this book is of God, and teaches of Christ, and teaches men to do Good. I have heard a learned a lot about Joseph Smith, and even about some of his weaknesses, But I know that he is a Prophet of God, and has restored the Church of Jesus Christ. I have seen miracles brought to pass the the priesthood that was restored through Joseph Smith, and Know that this priesthood can be directly traced back to Jesus Christ. I know Jesus Christ lives, and that his church was restored in these latter days. I know that it is directed by living prophets, and that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ to go with the Bible.

How I live my faith

I attend church every sunday, and try to attend every sunday I am capable. I have had calling to go teach people at their homes, and develop a love, and understanding for those I teach. I also have a calling to teach 14, and 15 year old young men at church. I love to serve my lord my God, and enjoy the blessings he gives me when I serve him.
