Hi I'm Zack

I've lived most of my life in California. I'm the oldest of many siblings. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a recent high school graduate. During my time in high school I was a member of the school band and played the percussion instrument called a Vibraphone. My parents divorced when I was very young, I've lived primarily with my mom but I still see my dad. Both have remarried several times and as a result I have many younger siblings from those marriages (including one from an adoption). Despite the unconventional nature of the family, they are still family. One of my favorite things to do is go see movies with friends, as anyone will tell you my knowledge of movies and random trivia is kinda scary (especially Star wars, Don't even get me started). While I am currently about to serve a mission, following that I plan to go to college and study in the field of psychology, hopefully to become a therapist or counselor of some kind.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church, some would say that means I didn't have a choice and that I only believe it because my parents and their parents believe it, this isn't the case. I would say I didn't really start to get it until I was a sophomore in high school, at this time I really started to see how my life differed from those who did not have the church in their life. I'm not saying that people can't live happy lives without the church, but I know that eternal happiness can only come through the restored gospel. I have seen my life be blessed and I have felt the love of our heavenly father. That is why I am a Mormon

How I live my faith

I have grown up in the church, and while I have not received many callings because of my young age I have been able to serve in various presidencies within the youth program. The biggest calling I ever got was as a Stake Youth Co-chair. What this basically meant is that I represented the youth within my area (several hundred) and was in charge of planning multiple large activities along side two other people that were given the same calling. There were many times that we had to make important decisions and sometimes months of planning would be all for nothing when the event actually occurred, then we would have to improvise. It was hard, but I could tell that I was being blessed because of the things that I was doing and the time that I was spending these things. Even though it was hard, I wouldn't have changed any of it.
