Hi I'm Austin

I am from Utah and have lived in the same house all my life and love to play sports. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I come from a family of nine with five sister and only one brother. I love them all a lot no matter how annoying they can be. I am second oldest and my only little brother is the last which puts us eleven years apart. I love most all sports. My favorite is soccer and played that throughout all my life in which I made lots of friends and got real good at it. I plan to go to a University after I serve my LDS mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as a Mormon and as I have gone through my life and I have been taught not just by teachers or parents, but also real life prophets and the holy ghost which has testified to me the church is true. I have read the scriptures including the bible and the Book of Mormon and new scripture. As I have done this my own testimony has grown. Now even if no one else in the world believed I would still, because I cannot not deny what I have felt.

How I live my faith

I go to church every week and do my best to participate in activities other days of the week. I'm an eagle scout which I got at age fourteen. I wasn't the best at home teaching, but still tried to go every month if I could. I have had some callings in youth groups, but none other than that. I do my best to live according to the teachings and commandments that we have been given. Yet like everyone else in this world I make quite a few mistakes. I'm grateful for the atonement and what Jesus did for us. I am able to repent of all my sins and mistakes I have done.

Who was Joseph Smith?

Born in early 1800s he was the just 14 years old when visited by Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. He translated the golden plates which is the Book of Mormon. He was the first prophet of the latter days and restored the only true church back on the Earth. The church of Jesus Christ and latter day saints. Show more Show less
