Hi I'm Mitchell

I grew up in Washington, I just graduated high school, I'm an uncle and an avid sports lover, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've lived in Washington for most of my life and just recently graduated high school! During high school I played football, ran track and also participated in various clubs. Since graduation, I've applied and been accepted to a university where I will pursue a degree in aviation and hopefully one day achieve my dream career as a commercial airline pilot.

Why I am a Mormon

At some point in life, everyone will have their faith questioned. Although I grew up in the church, I still had to decide for myself whether I believed it to be true or not. Everyone's experience coming to a knowledge of the truth of the gospel is different. For me, it came as a gradual realization of the feelings I received when I was living gospel principles. I realized that when I was striving to do that which was right and actively seeking to grow closer to Heavenly Father, I felt an unmatched peace and joy in my life. On the contrary, when I allowed myself to stray onto slippery slopes, I felt a hopelessness that I believe engulfs most of the world today. I am so grateful for the restored gospel of Jesus Christ and the priesthood authority that has been restored to the earth with it. I hope that as time goes on, more will come to a knowledge of this gospel through prayerful study and know for themselves the peace it brings.

How I live my faith

I try to demonstrate my faith through the way I treat others. Loving those around me helps me feel closer to Heavenly Father. One way I try to do this, is by serving those in need. Whether by volunteering at food banks, humanitarian aid organizations, or substitute teaching the youth in the church; looking for opportunities to help others has helped my relationship with both God and my community grow stronger.
