Hi I'm Squire

I grew up in Utah. I play and teach soccer and I also play the bagpipes. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Stansbury Park, Utah. However I never went to school in the Tooele area. I always went to school in the Salt Lake area. Right now I am in college at Utah State University and soon to be leaving on a mission! I have always played soccer for my whole life. My father has always been my coach and in my teenage years I started to coach and train in soccer. I've been doing this for a long time and I love it. I enjoy the teaching aspect of it cause it helps to bring people together. Along with soccer my hobbie is to play the Bagpipes. I've been playing the pipes for about 6-7 years and I'm not the best. But I enjoy to play because music is a beautiful and power source that helps to lift the spirits of others. Although these are my hobbies I hope to some day find my career in engineering or somewhere in the world of teaching. I hope to be able to make the world a better place for everyone. To add onto this I am now on a mission! I am serving in the Scotland/ Ireland Mission! I love it in Scotland it rains everyday! and I love to share and spread the gospel and it's truth!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I choose to be. I find the truth and happiness in the church and it's teaching is nothing else. There isn't anything like this anywhere else. I love to be able to teach and show others that I strongly believe in my faith and that because of this it makes me happy. Yes, I'll have sad and down days but to live understand that Christ is right there next to me the whole time is comfort to me. I can stay down or I let Christ help me up and help me become stronger and better everyday. This happiness that he brings will always leave me in a good mood no matter what. So I'm a Mormon and I hope to share this happiness with the world.

How I live my faith

I was born and raised in the church. But it want really has let me grown in my faith is knowing what I've been taught is true. In the recent years before college I've grown to ask and search for my faith in the gospel and come to find joy and happiness. I was able to serve with my youth and lead others in discussions in church as well in activities outside of church. Soon I'll be leaving on my mission and I hope to teach others of the faith in Jesus Christ and love he has for us. While I do this I know my own testimony will grow stronger everyday.

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

As I read and study the scriptures grow in spirit and love everyday. It makes me happy and feel good because the bad things in the world don't bug you at all when you read the scriptures. There is no bad or sad thoughts. It's all happy and warm. It brings joy and blessing into your life like no other. Personally for a while I found it hard and not a good time to even do anything with the church. Even though I've grown up in it. But I never truly read the scriptures till this past year and it brings you blessing of comfort like nothing else. I will bare witness that I love and know that the words of the book of Mormon are true and that they will help in all your understandings. Show more Show less
