Hi I'm Everett

Life is great, the church is true. I'm a child of God, and so are you! :) I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Hello, I come from the beautiful state of Utah. My whole life I've loved to be outdoors. Hiking, camping, backpacking, snowshoeing, and just sleeping in my hammock. I've been on some pretty fun adventures with my family and friends. I basically just love doing things, because life should be spent living. The greatest influence in my life is my family. My parents are great, and have really been my support to where I am now with my life. I also love my three siblings, they just help me out in so many ways. If I'm not with my family, I am with my friends. I have a few specific friends who go on lots of spur of the moment, crazy adventures with me! It is a great life. Right now I am serving as a missionary in the Stockholm Sweden mission. I absolutely love the people of Sweden, and have been blessed with many miracles. The Lord is good to His missionaries all around the world; it's a joy to be a part of bringing people closer to Him.

Why I am a Mormon

I've realized from studying this gospel that there is a lot I don't know, and my testimony is still young. One thing that I do know, and has always supported me, is that my Heavenly Father loves me. For me that knowledge really has put into quite a bit into perspective. I am so thankful for the infinite love He, and my Savior have for me. Because of that love I want to follow them, and listen to their council. I have read The Book of Mormon, prayed, and found it to be true. Because of this truth that I have found, every other aspect of this gospel has just fallen into place. Joseph Smith was God's prophet on the earth. The Church of Jesus Christ of Ladder-day Saints is true, and is still being lead by a living prophet who does receive revelation from God. I have been blessed by the priesthood authority, which is back on the earth. I have found this things to be true through scripture study, and prayer. Truth is truth, and doesn't change from person to person. Neither does the love that God has for each of his children.

How I live my faith

I feel like the main way that members of The Church of Jesus Christ live their faith is by service, and in my life it hasn't been different. I've had many opportunities to serve my Heavenly Father in the church. It's nothing extraordinary, but just what my faith in Jesus Christ has led me to do. So whether it is raking leaves for a neighbor when I was 13, or coming to Sweden to help others come unto Christ who are willing, there are many chances to serve, and I'm lucky to have been a part.

What is faith?

Faith for me is knowing that there is a God, with his son is Jesus Christ, they live in heaven, and they love me dearly. This is faith, because I have never seen God, or his only begotten son. However I have felt their influence in my life. When I pray to God, I can feel the love he has for me, I feel peace, and safety. I have seen so many lives touched by the gentle hand of God, and have seen them bless my own life as well! I know these things are true through the Holy Ghost, who has bore witness of them to me. I know they are real, even though I have not experienced them with any of my senses, only feelings in my heart and mind. Show more Show less
