Hi I'm Christian Harden

I am from Salt Lake City, Utah. I love sports and the outdoors. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I love sports, especially football, and anything outdoors! I especially love hunting, fishing, and skiing. I love hanging out with all of my friends and I love my dog! My mother was born in Sweden and my grandma brought her to the U.S. when she was young. I have been raised in Swedish culture my whole life and I absolutely love it! I am also currently serving an LDS mission in Stockholm, Sweden! I will be going to college when I get home and I hope to either become a doctor or a biomedical engineer!

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up as a Mormon for my whole life! My parents were born into the Church and I was as well! This doesn't mean that I have been brainwashed, or that I only believe in this Gospel because my parents believe in it. I have had my own trials of faith and I have read the Book of Mormon and prayed about it and my prayers were answered through the feelings that I got from the Holy Ghost! I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the true church of God! I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet and that there is a prophet here on the earth today, who is Thomas S. Monson! I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that it contains the fullness of the gospel! I have been so blessed by my Heavenly Father and I am so thankful to have a loving family that helps me every day to become the best person I can become! I know that the standards and rules that I live by aren't there to restrict me, but to actually give me more freedom and joy! I love my Heavenly Father and I am so thankful for the Atonement of Jesus Christ! I have felt the joy that comes from repentance and I know that he really did pay for the sins of everyone! I hope that all will listen and find out for themselves these same things!

How I live my faith

I am a proud member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints! I live my faith by going to church weekly, participating in the youth activities during the week, and by trying my best to live the way that my Heavenly Father would want me to live! I am also currently serving a mission in the Sweden, Stockholm mission!! I am devoting two full years of my personal time to serving the lord and to share the wonderful news that our gospel has to share! I would not be here unless I knew that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was true! There are things that I love to do and people that I love that I wouldn't leave without a firm knowledge of the truth of this gospel! Even though it was hard to leave those things behind, I love my God more than anything! I know that my loved ones will be taken care of and I have faith that my Heavenly Father will keep them safe and bless them! I hope to share this wonderful gospel with as many people as possible! I know it is true!
