Hi I'm Colt

I'm from Independence Missouri. I'm a missionary! And I'm loving every minute of it!

About Me

I'm 22 years old I like to watch Football and Pro Wrestling. My favorite football team is the Kansas City Chiefs. And my favorite wrestler is Jeff Hardy (because he is extreme). I also am a fan of music. I will listen to just about anything but I do have my limits. I prefer to listen metal or grudge rock. I feel like I relate to those artists more. My favorite metal band is Judas Priest \M/! My all time favorite band is Def Leppard. My favorite song is "One of a kind" by Breaking Point or "Junkhead" by Alice In Chains. I have 2 Cats. I love history. I would say WW1 is my absolute favorite. I also love learning about the Russian Empire 1721-1917. I am currently serving a mission in the California San Jose mission. And I'm a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

Because this is the one true church. Between the ages of 18-20 I had A TON of things happen in my life. These changed my life forever. I had a spiritual awakening of sorts. And they all proved that the church is true. I actually never wanted to serve a mission. I had "other plans". But Heavenly Father knows best. Since coming out here I've grown in many ways. Back home I had severe depression because I HATED everything in my life. I realized that I needed to make some changes in order to truly feel Gods love in my life again. Now that I'm a missionary I'm able to share with people MY own testimony. Something that's still growing everyday. Since being out I've learned to forgive the people that have wronged me in my past. Even though I still suffer from bouts of depression I'm still a Son of God and I can still change lives. I love what this church has done for me.

How I live my faith

I'm currently serving a mission. Teaching about how it's through Jesus that anything is possible. I've been able to see the results of the power of love and what it does to people. I've been able to see the power of change within people because of the testimony I bear witness of how my life has changed because of the gospel and its teachings. I strive to be myself at all times and places.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

The atonement is when Christ took upon himself the sins of the world. When you are baptized and partake of the sacrament your sins are washed away and we are closer to living with our Heavenly Father. Show more Show less
