Hi I'm Chris Vincent

I grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah. I attended the United States Naval Academy. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the second oldest of four children. I was born and raised in the Salt Lake City area of Utah. I love to hike, camp, and play volleyball. From a young age, I always wanted to fly. This is why I chose to attend the United States Naval Academy. After completing two years at the Academy, I am taking the opportunity to serve in the Japan Nagoya mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a Mormon household, and I know it was that environment that allowed me to become the person I am today. Knowing that Heavenly Father has a plan for me and that I can achieve it through the Atonement of Jesus Christ is an amazing comfort. I hope that others will be drawn to the Gospel of Jesus Christ so that they can experience the same happiness that I have.

How I live my faith

I have always believed that actions speak louder than words. If you want to follow the teachings of Christ, then you need to be willing to display them in everyday interactions. It is the small things like smiling and saying hello that have caused others to brighten my days. This is why I try to take every opportunity available to extend that same courtesy and respect to the people I meet. They aren't difficult actions, but it does take time to build the habit.
