Hi I'm Justin Staker

I grew up in Idaho Falls, Idaho. I love my family, sports, and playing the guitar.

About Me

Right now I am a missionary serving in the South Carolina, Columbia mission. I love it so much. Every day is a new adventure and the people here are so awesome. I grew up in Idaho falls and graduated from Bonneville High School. I always loved spending time with family and friends. I love sports (soccer especially) and music. Whenever I have free time I am typically listening to music or playing the guitar. I love life and love smiling.

Why I am a Mormon

I live this way because it gives me purpose. Nothing has brought me true happiness like loving this gospel. When we really do live this gospel we see God use us to help others and make them happier. I feel so blessed to be a member of this church. I know that it is God's church on the earth today. I know the Book of Mormon to be the word of God and a testament of Jesus Christ. I know Joseph smith was a prophet and that we have a prophet on the earth today who leads and guides us. I want everyone in the world to come to this understanding and right now I'm working on it. Starting in South Carolina!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to be an example. Being an example is one of the best ways we can teach people about Jesus Christ. I love the quote "in everything you do preach the gospel and only when you have to- use your words." I love serving others. And right now I am doing it full time as a missionary. I want others to see how happy I am and want that for themselves. I love being a Mormon and riding my bike in the pouring rain!
