Hi I'm Seth

I am a outdoor, sports and music lover from England, and I am a Mormon!

About Me

I was born and raised in the city of Birmingham, found in central England. I have a great love for the outdoors, and enjoy hiking mountains, lakes, and exploring forests. I also enjoy watching sports, such as football, American Football, and Basketball. Music is another passion of mine, and I play the Classical Guitar and Keyboard. I graduated from Handsworth Grammar School, studying English Literature, Geography, and Philosophy & Ethics. I have been assigned to labour as a Missionary in the Russia Samara Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents and grandparents are members of the Church, so I was born into the Gospel. Despite this, I still had to find out the truthfulness of the Church for myself. This was done through attending Church every week, praying and studying the scriptures. A selection of personal experiences have also shown me that these things are true. I continue to follow the Gospel because it brings me, my family, and my friends happiness. Knowing that God loves you, and that He has shown us the path we must take to return back to him, is very comforting and reassuring. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints shows us our purpose on this Earth, and lets us know where we came from, and where we are going.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to be like Jesus Christ everyday. This doesn't involve any dramatic events, but involves making small changes such as being a little bit more kind and tolerant towards someone, or using opportunites to help and serve people. I live my faith by keeping all the commandments and trusting that God will bless me and help me. I also look for opportunites to teach and inspire people, as this can bless other people's lives also. Being a Mormon should change how we do everything. Instead of thinking about ourselves, we ought to think of others first, as this is what Christ would do.
