Hi I'm Elder Minnich

I grew up in Texas and am about to serve a mission in England. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a huge lover of music. I also love to play the piano even though i am not to skilled at it. In high school i was a member of the marching band and my freshman year we even went to the state competition. I plan to go to BYU for college after my mission and in the mean time i'm earning some money at a local Wendy's. I enjoy stories in all their forms so i am almost always reading or watching something, and if you have yet to guess i am not to good at writing. I am now also a missionary serving in england

Why I am a Mormon

Since about 7th grade I've loved music. Not the really the pop music but music that has a soul. I've noticed that you don't really have to be good at something in order to touch peoples hearts, real effort and a strong purpose delivers music much better than talent. likewise its the same with the gospel. for example, I taught 12 year olds in Sunday school before i left for my mission. there were times when I wasn't that prepared because I was lazy. surprisingly i didn't stumble over words and didn't really make mistakes but my students just didn't seem to be interested at all. likewise there were times when i tried my best to prepare a lesson and did nothing but mess up. the students had never been so captivated by what I taught. that is why i love this gospel. if you try hard the spirit won't let you fail.

How I live my faith

My stake has a Christmas concert every year with volunteers from the stake. I have avidly participated in this for six years. It is my personal belief that music is like a loud speaker for the spirit. other than that i go to church every Sunday with my family and teach a youth Sunday school class. I try to read the book of Mormon every morning after breakfast and night before bed.
