Hi I'm Wyatt Owen

I grew up in a small town in Idaho. I was born into a very strong LDS family, and I am a track runner. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently an LDS missionary serving in Bakersfield, California! I have always been an avid outdoorsman and sportsman. I love hunting, sports, and just about anything I can do outside. I played soccer, basketball, cross country, and track and field while I was in high school. I enjoy reading, and I love movies. I come from a family of 7, including my parents. Some other activities I enjoy are paintballing, horseback-riding, and boating. I hope to go run track in college when I am back from my mission.

Why I am a Mormon

The Lord has helped me when I've needed it. I have been shown that this is the true church on this Earth. The teachings of this church are so important for me to follow, and I have learned that that is what the Lord wants me to follow.

How I live my faith

I take it day by day. There are problems and hurdles that I face everyday that I overcome through the Gospel and teachings of the Lord. I know what is expected of me, and I know the Lord blesses me and my family when I follow those expectations. I am one to avoid situations which might lead me to do something which I would not feel good about doing. I have friends who are not LDS, but that does not change who I am or what I believe.
