Hi I'm Porter

I grew up playing violin and piano in Kansas. Now I get to serve a mission for my church in Romania and Moldova. I'm a Mormon(:

About Me

Hello everyone! I really like music, in fact I'm going to school for violin and piano performance at a little private school called Friends University. I've spent a lot of time practicing but I think hard work pays off, and it has. There are not a lot of things that can beat the experience of finally playing your piece after months of practice and being pleased with the way you sound. I'm also interested in photography and Volkswagens. Some of the best days are those when I get to go to car shows and take pictures of Volkswagens. Well, that just about covers it. Have a nice day!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I prayed and asked if the Book of Mormon is true. I was answered in the affirmative and am amazed every day at the blessings the Lord has to offer us if we obey His commandments. Every question I have ever had can be answered in the doctrine of my church and that is a huge blessing to me. I know where I came from, I know why I am here, and I know whe I am going. I know the reasons behind the commandments and I know that when I sin, because of Christ I can be cleansed and come back to Heavenly Father's presence.

How I live my faith

My calling in my church is the ward organist. I really like it because it's an unpaid position so if offers me the opportunity to use my talents in a way that gives back to God a little of what He gave to me. I once read that next to prayer, music is what brings us the closer to God the most. Through playing the organ, I can worship God in one of the most powerful ways possible--for me at least. I am very blessed to have this calling, but also to be a member of His church.
