Hi I'm Heath

I grew up in California and Texas. I enjoy outdoor activities. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I lived in Utah for 8 months before moving to California and living there for 13 years. I participated in many sports such as basketball, football, baseball, lacrosse, volleyball, track and others. The summer before I entered High School, my family moved to Texas. I continued playing basketball and football but experienced many setbacks in my athletic career. Eventually, through a lot of hard work and discipline, I was able to sign to play basketball for Illinois Tech in 2018, when I return home from my mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes me happy. The standards that we are asked to live in the church often seem difficult but living them is what makes me happy. Heavenly Father has a reason for each one of the standards He has asked us to live. I didn't really see these reasons until after I did everything I could to live them. Heavenly Father understands when we may fall short because of our weaknesses but He is always there to pick us back up out of love. Knowing this brings a lot of peace to me and makes me happy.

How I live my faith

I am not perfect by any definition, but I try my best to set a good example of the church. I read my scriptures and pray every day and do most everything I am supposed to do. I experience many setbacks but I trust in the Lord to help me get through my trials and struggles and He never fails me.
