Hi I'm Harrison

I grew up in Portland, Oregon USA. I have been called to serve my mission in Lubbock, Texas. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I play football, basketball, and lacrosse. Some of my hobbies include woodworking, homework, and sleeping. At my high school I was apart of the viking house program. I have served in many leadership positions in my school and at church.

Why I am a Mormon

I love the standards this church teaches. It has helped me grow up to be a responsible stand up guy preparing me to go on a mission and to the go to college and get married. Looking back at how this church was founded and started, there is no way that a 14 year old boy could make any of what he saw up. At 14 I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life, and yet this other 14 year old boy was able to come up with a special experience he had in the woods, describing how he saw God the Farther and His Son Jesus Christ, and described this experience so perfectly, is amazing to me. He being Joseph Smith, then also lived the rest of his life proclaiming the word of God to the world, enduring the hardest of trials anyone could ever imagine and never once letting go of his faith in Christ. If this had just been been some story that he had completely made up when he was 14, there is no way that I personally could have kept a hold to that lie from when I was 14, especially after learning all that he had to go through. In short, if someone was willing to sacrifice their own life for this church, then there truly is somthing special about the things taught.

How I live my faith

As I have worked my way through the priesthood I have served in the presidencies as a councilor and as the president of the quorum. I have also been a regional representative in a state wide young men's missionary training camp. I helped plan an entire week of activities for a camp of 300 people. These activities include, games and competitions, scripture study, lessons, meals, and guest speakers.
