Hi I'm Christian

I grew up in Arizona. I ran on the Track team in High School. I love to draw, hike, and eat good food. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am from a very large blended family. I have a total of 12 siblings, but only live with about 6 at a time. After years of living together, we learned to get along and become friends. I love to try new foods with my friends. I found that an oriental soup called "Pho" is amazing! I also love camping! My favorite site in Arizona is a branch of the Grand Canyon called Havasupai. The hike is considerable but the waterfalls make it worth the excursion. I love to draw and paint when I can. I will study to someday become a Biomedical Engineer.

Why I am a Mormon

I continue to be actively engaged in this church because I have put it to the test and I have experienced the blessings. I have read the Book of Mormon with real intent and a sincere desire to know the truth. I brought my questions about the church to God in prayer and He continues to answer my prayers through the Spirit that I feel as I read from this powerful testament of Jesus Christ. I know that the true church of Jesus Christ was restored through Joseph Smith, because the Book of Mormon is true. I know that my Savior lives and leads this church.

How I live my faith

I attend church every week and do my best to live what I learn. For years, I have served as an assistant to the Bishop of our congregation. Specifically, I would help run meeting with the youth that were 16-18 years old like I was. I would also help plan activities like hiking, cooking, and shot gun shooting to bring the young men closer together. Occasionally, I also lead Gospel discussions in our small group and spoke in front of the congregation. Speaking in church has been a wonderful opportunity for me to step out of my comfort zone and teach about Jesus Christ using the scriptures. My experiences in the Church will help me when I serve a mission in Eugene, Oregon.
