Hi I'm zach smedley

I was born and raised in Utah and was born into the mormon faith. Played soccer and participated in choir and theatre.

About Me

I love sports and played soccer in High school and participated whenever possible in school sponsored sports. I also love music and theatre and participated in the highschool choir and theatre groups. I love to explore and see new things and was able to take a scuba diving course as well and become certified. I have a yearning to explore all that the world has to offer and see all its wonders.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the faith and raised to believe it. But as time continued to go on with this atmosphere, I quickly began to learn for myself that this seemed like it was right and correct. The more and more I learned and listened to my religious leaders, it continued to make sense to me and I started to feel good about it. Knowing what I know through this religion has helped me keep myself clean and develop good attributes and habits. Knowing what I know through this gives me a sense of purpose and hope for the future, knowing that this isn't the only life that exists, that there is more than just this life, and on the other side we have numberless friends and family that are cheering for us to make it back to them, and I believe they see all our trials and I am still a mormon so that I can make it back to them, and make our father proud.

How I live my faith

At the moment, I am preparing for a full time mission, where we go out and live somewhere else for 2 years to talk to people about Jesus Christ and the Gospel. I participate in church activities and the sacrament every week. I help prepare the sacrament as well for the congregation at church to participate in it. I strive to live the commandments that we are commanded to follow from our father in heaven, they are listed in the book of mormon which we believe is the word of God.
