Hi I'm Charlie

I grew up in Utah and in Indiana. I love running, fitness, meeting new people, and helping others in any way. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Indiana, and at age 2 I moved with my family to Utah. After 12 years of growing up there, I found out that I was heading back to the town I moved in. I didn't want to go back, I had friends and family here. But after 4 years of living in Indiana again, I loved everything about going back. I knew Heavenly Father wanted me back in Indiana. I will be serving a mission for the next 2 years in Thailand, the same mission that my mother had served. I also love running, swimming, other types of physical activity, traveling throughout the world, and being outdoors. I enjoy being with people and making new friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church, so I didn't really choose if I wanted to become a Mormon. But, I have seen tremendous blessings and opportunities that have been given to me and in others when I was in the church my whole life. I recently graduated high school, and after high school, I am going on a 2 year Mormon Mission for my church in Thailand, then I will be going to college. Many people wonder why I would do that, sacrificing 2 years out of my life, spending my own money for the mission, and studying Thai and the gospel for hours a day. Why would I? Because I know that God has helped me through the toughest challenges and times in my life and I have seen his hand bless my life. Through that joy, I want to serve as many people as possible by taking two years out of my life, dedicating myself to others and God, by sharing my joy and happiness to others who need to know that.

How I live my faith

I am very active in my church. Not because I feel like I have to, or feel like I am forced to, but I love being with the people in my church and serving others at the same time. It is great to be with such an amazing group of people that love me and serve me when I can, and in return I serve them and help them however I can.
