Hi I'm Colten

I grew up in Southern California. I aspire to be a Lawyer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have always loved playing sports and staying active. When not playing sports or hitting the gym I attend college at a university level and have completed my first year. After completing said year I decided that I should serve my Lord as a missionary. I submitted my mission papers and have been called to the Guayaquil Ecuador Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Mormon church, however that does not detract from the fact that I am a Mormon by choice. I've grown up in Southern California in a rough area full of crime, and I could have very easily been pulled into that life. However, following the promptings of the spirit gives a much more fulfilling lifestyle, so much so that I have always chosen to follow the teachings of the church. The blessings and positive attitude that comes from the church throughout my life are the reasons that I continue to go to church and do the things I need to in order to stay active.

How I live my faith

In my community I have been a coach of a local little league team for several years. In addition to this I have the opportunity to serve in my church as a leader in the scouting organization. Helping others in any capacity is always accompanied by feelings of gratitude and peace. It helps one to think of how much our savior has done for us and in our service we are able to slowly pay him back for his sacrifices.
