Hi I'm Elder Mason Verl Giles

The LDS Church has always been a part of my life. I grew up in the small town of Ucon Idaho, just outside of Idaho Falls.

About Me

I was born in Rexburg, ID. I have always loved being a member of the LDS Church. The blessings of peace and of happiness it provides are innumerable. My family has felt those blessings all throughout our lives. I am the youngest of five, I have one brother and three sisters. I graduated from High school this passed year, 2016.

Why I am a Mormon

I was lucky enough to be born into a family who not only knew of the Mormon Church, but also tried their best to do and live the teachings of the church. However, I have not always just agreed with its teachings. I have had to study the scriptures, pray and really come to know of the fullness of Christ teachings which are contained in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints. I am a Mormon because I love the lord. I am a Mormon because of the blessings which come through keeping God's commandments. I am a Mormon because I choose to be, and because I know its true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith as best I can. I attended church, participated in ward and stake activities, and read from the scriptures specifically the Book of Mormon as often as I could. I am currently serving a full time mission in the Michigan Lansing Mission, and am LOVING serving.
