Hi I'm Connor

Born and raised in California. I love playing soccer, football, and about every other sport. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am eighteen years old and grew up in California. I am the second of four boys. I can often be found at the lake, where I love to wakeboard and spend time with family. I've always been super involved in athletics, having played football, soccer, and rugby at various levels of competition. I also love watching and following professional sports, especially the statistics and strategy involved. I've participated in math competitions. I have an entrepreneurial drive and love the idea of starting and running a business. I am currently serving in the Korea Seoul South Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I found out for myself that the Church was true. I love the fact that our Heavenly Father gave us each the personal opportunity to pray and ask for ourselves if the Book of Mormon is true. I can firmly attest that I have gained a testimony that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. By striving to uphold the principles inside, I've had the chance to feel the Holy Ghost and grow closer to Christ. I am grateful for the chance I have to return to live with my Heavenly Father. The Gospel provides me with feelings of hope and joy on a daily basis and I know that it is true.

How I live my faith

I grew up a member of the Church and have always actively attended church meetings. I attended early-morning seminary before school during high school. I've often participated in service projects and have worked in the Church's vineyard. I had the wonderful opportunity to serve as a youth leader in my area during my senior year of high school. I helped plan two summer camps, run small activities, and teach our local youth. Having the chance to serve has given me a testimony of what charity is and how service can bring us closer to Christ. I strive everyday to uphold the principles of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
