Hi I'm Philip Mason Hopper

My passion is music and photography. Playing Sax in Jazz,Concert,&Marching. And taking pictures is my life. And I am a Mormon.

About Me

Raised in Utah, I am currently serving my 2-year voluntary mission in Columbus Ohio. My passion Is music and photography. I loved my band teacher, not only was he a really good friend, but a mentor for me, and actually came to my mission farewell. I played Saxophone in Jazz,Concert,Dixie, & Marching band. Music has actually run through my family for a very long time. I have (including me), 7 siblings in my family. All of them play instruments and LOVE it. Additionally, I have been uploading my pictures to National geographic for over a year and a half now. My future goals is of course, continue playing Sax, but to peruse Photography, and become a Software Engineer. Getting school done as fast as possible, so I can possibly enjoy the wonders of a family :)

Why I am a Mormon

Continually, without fail, I will receive blessings from God. Whether I recognize them or not, I am being watched over with protection. From our Heavenly Father. And that keeps me going. I would not have served a mission, or love my family and friends the way I do if I did not feel the Holy Ghost in my life.

How I live my faith

It's more of "how I exercise my faith". I learn it, live it, and ultimately love it. I learn and grow from each experience everyday of my life as long as I keep the thought of progression in my mind. And Faith will help me to do that. Faith is the only way I can do that. Continuously, I attend our religions sacred temples. I absolutely LOVE the temple(s) because when I go, I not only know my Heavenly Father loves me, but I can feel it.
