Hi I'm Elder Hawkes

I'm from Salt Lake City, UT. I am currently serving in the Florida Tampa Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the youngest of 4 kids in my family. I am currently serving the Lord full time in the Florida Tampa Mission. I like to go hiking and go skiing with my friends. I also like art and being creative.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church but I had to find out for myself to know if it is true. I read the Book of Mormon with a desire to know if it was the word of God. It's amazing the answer I received and I couldn't deny that it came from God. I know God wouldn't leave the world in confusion with out having a Prophet living on the earth today to lead and guide his church. The knowledge I have of God's Plan of Salvation is comforting and I know what I need to do now to live forever with my family and Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by praying everyday and studying the scriptures. Serving a mission brings a lot of opportunities to share the gospel with others and showing them the happiness it can bring to their lives.
