Hi I'm Nefi

I live in the United States. I'm preparing to go on a mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a recent high school graduate. I am preparing to go serve a mission in Des Moines Iowa. I am the youngest of 5 siblings. I enjoy many different sports, especially soccer. I enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, and off-roading. I also enjoy spending quality time with family.

Why I am a Mormon

To start off, I am a Mormon because I was raised one after my parents were converted. However, I CHOOSE to continue being a Mormon because I have felt the impact it has had on my life. Because of this church, I know I can be with my family after this life. Because of this church, I know that God has a plan for me and that we aren't to go about life aimlessly and hope for the best when we die. Because of this church, I know that each of us our sons and daughters have a divine being who is in heaven who loves and knows each of us personally. I also know that Jesus Christ died for each of us and provided us the path in which we can someday return to our father in heaven if we but obey and follow the path he's set for us. The gospel of Jesus Christ has brought me an indescribable amount of joy that I wish for you, the reader, to experience for yourself. Thankfully you can! As you may or may have not have heard, the Book of Mormon which is another testament of Jesus Christ, is often called the keystone of our religion. Because I have read it and come to know of its truth, I know that everything restored through the prophet Joseph Smith is also true. Because I know I can draw unto Christ and hopefully someday return to a Heavenly father, is why I choose to be Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by patterning my life after christ. I do my best to love everyone I come in contact with and I try to serve them to the best of my ability. I have also had opportunities to serve in leadership roles for youth activities and try to help provide them experiences that will strengthen their faith in our lord and savior Jesus Christ.
