Hi I'm Spencer Straddeck

I grew up in Utah, I enjoy outside activities including tennis and Frisbee. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hey! My name is Spencer and I'm a Mormon. I enjoy being outside and spending time with family and friends. I am an Eagle Scout and enjoy helping others in their activities. I have been accepted into college and hope to obtain a Mechanical Engineering Degree then move to Law School. I enjoy playing tennis and frisbee but also am a avid reader. I've played the piano since I was five years old and still continue to play, from hymns to famous songs.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that it is the true church upon this Earth and that it will allow me to be with my family forever. I also know that through this church, I came to realize that my Heavenly Father loves me personally and cares about the everyday activities and struggles I face. I know that God cares about you too. I continue to follow Heavenly Father's counsel and commandments every day because I want to become more like Him and also give a good example to my friends and family! I came to know all of these things during the beginning of my senior year in High School. I finally decided I wanted to know who I was and what I'm going to do during the following years. What path would I decide to take? After about a month of fasting, heartfelt prayer, and soul searching, I came to realize that I already knew the answer to my searching, that the church is true and all the teachings of parents and prophets were there for my benefit. Once I realized this, the spirit overcame me and testified of the truth of my search. I had found my home! Now that I am on a mission, I feel the Spirit testify to me every day that the church is true and I love the feeling I receive as I serve those I love so much.

How I live my faith

I really enjoy living my faith and I know it has help me to become the person I have grow to be. I have recently been on my stakes youth committee and I loved planning and executing fun and spiritual events for the fantastic youth. I also have served in my different quorum presidency's and really do love connecting with each individual person and helping each one grow in many ways. I also try extremely hard to live like my Heavenly Father would. This means I try to show a good example for everyone. This doesn't mean I'm perfect but I sure do try to be. I also try and live my life to be worthy of the priesthood that I have the privilege of carrying. To be God's representative each and every day.
