Hi I'm Wyatt

I love the outdoors, i'm a lacrosse player, and I love camping, backpacking, fishing, and rock climbing. And i'm a Mormon

About Me

I was born and raised in Utah and I love nature and being in the outdoors. With the Rocky Mountains in my backyard and "the greatest snow on earth" I quickly became a huge snow skier. I have been skiing since I was about four and even skied on the Alta ski team. I also love to go dirt biking with friends and I love to go backpacking. I've backpacked in Utah, California, Oregon, and even Peru. I love music and have learned a variety of instruments. I love to play the guitar while my friend plays the banjo, and we jam out to some Mumford and Sons. I have also played lacrosse since I was nine and played on my high school team where I played attack. I also love to travel and see the world with my family. We have been to Mexico, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Peru, Europe, China, and Indonesia. I have my mission call and I have been assigned to labor in the Marshall Islands Majuro mission. I will serve in the island nation of Kiribati in the Gilbert islands, and I will be speaking Kiribati. After my mission I will attend Brigham Young University in Provo and begin my major in Engineering.

Why I am a Mormon

For me, I don't have a conversion story. Both of my parents were born and raised in the church. As for my siblings and I, we were born and raised in the church as well. However, there was a time in middle school when my friends started to fall away from the church. And I hate to admit it, but I fallowed them a little. While I was doing this I knew what I was doing was wrong, and I wasn't happy. And I couldn't deny the happiness that I felt when I went to church. So I stopped hanging out with those friends and got better ones. I started going to church every Sunday and I felt and continue to feel the spirit everyday. I am a mormon because happiness and joy I get from living a happy and fulfilling life. I have recognized the lords hand in my life and in the life of my family. I love this gospel and I know that it is true.

How I live my faith

Since I am currently preparing to serve a mission, I attend mission preparation classes every Sunday, and I do the small things to help build and grow me testimoney. I read my scriptures and pray every day, and I try to be the best person that I can be. One thing that I do to stay connected with my community, is I attend the sacrament session of an assisted living center next to my church every few months or so. It is such a great opportunity to hear the stories of a different generation. They bring insights and different perspectives into my life.
