Hi I'm Zachary Smith

I was born and have lived in Alaska my whole life. I love to hike and be in the outdoors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to play any sport. My mom got it right ever since I was a young kid by saying I would play anything with a ball. Besides sports with a ball I also enjoy skiing, hiking, and biking. In my free time I am often found reading. Ever since I was young I have loved books, one evening I finally looked at the clock to see it was 5am and I was still reading. When not in free time you can find me mowing lawns. This allows for time outside and time to think. Recently I received my mission call to Colombia!

Why I am a Mormon

All my life I was raised in the Church and followed the motions feeling that I knew it was true. In my later teenage years I felt the drive to KNOW for myself. I started reading the book of Mormon and praying. As promised these simple acts drew me closer to the Savior. This simple change in my life helped me to become truly converted to the Gospel of Jesus Christ and that is something I will always treasure.

How I live my faith

All my life I have participated in youth activities and Sunday meetings. I have been in charge of groups of young men from ages 12-18. I have been involved in musical groups.
