Hi I'm Zachary Weaver

I'm from Las Vegas. I earned my Associate's Degree at 17. I'm an Eagle Scout. I'm a bass player and singer in a band. I'm a Mormon

About Me

Hello! My name is Zachary, and there's a wide range of things to know about me. I am an Eagle Scout, first and foremost (an accomplishment my family and I are very proud of, especially my mother). I worked very hard in school, and earned my Associate's Degree at age 17, which was a remarkable accomplishment as well! Also, I have won several local awards for public speaking and debate. I love to talk, and so it's wonderful to see my passion recognized! I write poetry, and have even been competing in local poetry slams, where I have won awards as well. This hobby helps me with my favorite activity: music. I sing and play bass for a local band called The Good Points, and one of the joys of my life is to see my songs and words be put into the world. Starting this fall, I will begin to serve my mission in Fukuoka, Japan, and I couldn't be more excited to spread the love and peace of the gospel as the Savior Jesus Christ would have me do. Following my mission, I will be attending college for Engineering and Business.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon for many reasons. The first I can think of is that I know the gospel is true; I cannot deny that this church is the restoration of what Jesus Christ himself established on the Earth. It also provides me with the opportunity to have an eternal family, and the hope that this life is not the end. But most of all, it brings me joy. Not a passing, fleeting happiness that you get from a good meal or a new, fun purchase. Rather, its a joy and an everlasting happiness in knowing that Heavenly Father knows me, has a plan for me, and wants me to succeed.

How I live my faith

I do many things to live the faith in my community. First, I lead the youth in my area. From fun activities like basketball and taco nights, to spiritual ones, I do all in my power to bring youth that I know closer to one another, and closer to the Savior Jesus Christ. I also serve as a home teacher, where I go and visit families and members in the ward. Seeing someone's day brightened just by visiting with them and reminding them that you're there for them is one of the most rewarding experiences in the world. Finally, another way I live my faith is by participating in service projects. By lending my talents to activities, whether it be renovating local parks, working at food banks, or just weeding someone's yard, spreading good in the world is the message of the Savior's gospel and thus, the best way to live my faith.
