Hi I'm Cooper Nelson

I was born in Utah, but moved to Texas when I was 7. I have been a member of the church for my whole life.

About Me

I have been a member of The Church my whole life, and i love the feelings and the love that the Gospel brings to me. I never had plans of serving a full-time mission, but I recently made the decision to better myself and devote two years of my life to the Lord. I am currently preparing to serve in the Utah Provo mission and I could not be more excited to go!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because The Church makes sense. Not only am I able to recognize and feel the spirit because of the church, it makes sense logically. The LDS Church is the only religion I have found that every bit of it makes sense and there aren't any bits that I don't like. The happiness and serenity that I experience is surely divine and it makes me want to hold onto that feeling forever.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to read my scriptures every day and praying as often as I can. I make sure to spend time with my family and attend my church meetings every Sunday. By doing these simple things, my life is much brighter and happier. By following in the footsteps of The Savior, I find the Light of Christ in my life each day.
