Hi I'm Crew Smith

I grew up in Arizona. I love extreme sports. I'm a missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Growing up, I loved being outdoors. From camping with the family, to building tree houses in the back yard, any excuse I had to be outside, I would be there. As I grew older my passion of the outdoors became evident as I expanded my hobbies and interests. Extreme sports were what caught my eye, and soon my passions became dirtbiking, wakeboarding, skating, and snowboarding! The rush of participating in these sports was a thrill! When I'm not participating in these pastimes, I love spending time with my family and friends. My family is the most important thing in my life. I cherish spending time with them and just having a good time. Currently I am serving a mission for my church in the Washington D.C. South Mission, and I'm loving every second!

Why I am a Mormon

For me the question is easy, I received an answer that the Book of Mormon was true. Growing up in the church I believed it to be true, but I had never really prayed and asked to find out for myself if it was. So, just as everyone else, I came to a point where I had to decide for myself if the book was true. I remember vividly the day I knelt down and prayed earnestly to know if Joseph Smith was a prophet of god and if the book of Mormon was true. My answer didn't come all at once but, eventually an undeniable feeling came over me and I knew it was true. The Lord had answered my prayer and I couldn't deny it. From this experience, I've chosen to be a Mormon and I have a testimony that the Book of Mormon is the word of God!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by holding to the standards I know to be true. One of these standards I try to emulate everyday is serving my fellow man. Service, to me, is the best way to show Christ like love for others. From doing simple things such as the dishes for my mom or to larger tasks such as cutting a tree down for my grandfather. Whatever the opportunity, I do my best to serve. This helps me draw closer to my savior Jesus Christ.
