Hi I'm Addison

I was born in Hawaii and grew up in Utah. I have earned every merit badge offered by the Boy Scouts of America. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Growing up in the church has been an amazing experience. My parents are stalwart examples of what I want to be and I follow after them and the trail they have blazed for me. I enjoy lifting weights and playing basketball for fun as well as running. I have run three marathons and love the metaphorical likeness of "finishing the race", the race being our lives and finishing meaning to endure to the end. I will be serving a mission in Peru and am excited to serve the people and learn their culture. I already speak Spanish because of my amazing family and teachers as well as a steady effort of listening to the radio in Spanish everyday.

Why I am a Mormon

The teachings of the gospel constantly present new ways that we can improve our lives and it is amazing to see a journey that no one has finished in the pursuit for perfection, likened unto Jesus Christ. I want to always repent for the things I do wrong and work on my weaknesses everyday. The knowledge that I will be with my family forever makes me so happy.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through service and love. Home teaching has given me friends that I cherish dearly. I had the opportunity to serve in Mexico with my family over Christmas Break recently and I have never felt as happy as I did serving the people down there. Service is the remedy if you lack love for the people around you. Service is not an act but a state of being.
