Hi I'm Justin

I'm a native Utahn called to serve in the South Africa Johannesburg Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Utah. I enjoy hiking and spending time outdoors, as well as playing the piano. I love to spend time with my family of TEN! I have been called to serve in the South Africa Johannesburg Mission, reporting to the MTC September 15, 2016.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a home with parents who taught me the gospel. As I have gotten older, I have gained a testimony for myself that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and Thomas S. Monson is his true and living prophet on the earth today. I have gained that witness through praying, studying the scriptures, attending church, and seeking to live a Christlike life. Through baptism and repentance we can be forgiven of our sins. I have felt the cleansing power of the Atonement. It is real. When we are going through a trial, we can turn to Christ to find confidence, strength, and courage to make it through. The gospel has given me the knowledge that I am never alone! There will always be somebody to lean on. Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father will always be there. The Book of Mormon is the word of God. Our Heavenly Father gives us scriptures and living prophets that we may be happy! He wants us to be happy! And that is exactly what the gospel has done for me. I wouldn't give it up for anything in the world.

How I live my faith

I am busy preparing serve a full-time mission! I try to make it to the temple often and participate in ward activities. I have learned to love sharing my testimony and teaching the gospel through my experience with hometeaching. Living the gospel brings true joy! Striving to follow the perfect example of Jesus Christ helps me in all aspects of my life. It brings me happiness, peace, comfort, and knowledge of the truth. I am beyond excited to share this amazing gospel with others so they can experience that true happiness.
