Hi I'm Zach

I lived in Pennsylvania, I enjoy weight lifting and performing acts of service for others. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I grew up in PA and have lived in this great state for my whole life and i love it! The leaves, the football, and most importantly the people are the best parts of living in this beautiful place. I have always loved lifting, singing, playing the tuba, football, and strategy games. I have always loved to explore not only the great outdoors but the great cities of my state as well. When I'm not at home you'll either find me at a family event, having a blast with my friends or just exploring places i've never been before. Exploring and learning new things are very important to me. I strive to learn something new any time i can. Exploring is so important to me because i don't want to miss out on things that one day i might not be able to do. THe biggest thing that drives this is my hearing loss. As a toddler and young child people couldn't understand me, my parents couldn't even communicate with me, and no one knew why. It couldn't be because i'm deaf, i could recognize sound. One day a discovered that my hearing was very weak and that it was only getting worse. After surgeries, years of speech therapy, and having to wear a cone, due to a surgery, on the side of my head for the entirety of first grade i was finally normal. Not being able to hear to full capacity has influenced my life like not many other things can and i'm proud of that.

Why I am a Mormon

I could say hundreds of different reasons why i am a member of this faith, but one reason comes to me the most. The feeling that it gives me. The warmth i get from reading scriptures and following promptings is so strong and bright, the feeling of family i feel while being at church is overwhelming, and the knowledge that my father in heaven will always be with me to guide me, that i can one day have a marriage with a lovely spouse that will last beyond death, and to know that me and my family will bve together forever. These are just the tip of the iceberg, of why i am a mormon.

How I live my faith

Right now i am about to depart for a two year mission for the church. Getting there was a bumpy ride but i have had many things impact that call, one of those was teaching. I get the wonderful opportunity to teach five year olds about the gospel, and have had this opportunity since my 19th birthday. Outside of church i live my faith by trying to be kind to everyone that i can,even when they test my patience, reading scripture, and doing service unto others.
