Hi I'm Zach

I was born and raised in Utah. I love skiing with friends and I am stoked on my call to serve Portland Oregon. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 18 years old, I am an eagle scout, and I will be leaving October 18th for my mission to preach the LDS gospel to the people of Portland, Oregon. I couldn't be more stoked! I love to go skiing and skateboarding with my friends. I like art and designing and building things. I love my family and spending time with them!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it brings me so much happiness. Happiness that will last forever. It is such a comfort to know that I can live with my family forever. There are many other blessings I have enjoyed from living worthily and repenting of my sins. I am so thankful for the Atonement so I can repent because without that and without repentance, there's no way to improve yourself and to live with loved ones forever. I'm thankful for the Book of Mormon and the guidance that it gives and I know it is the corner stone of this religion.

How I live my faith

I have been preparing for my full time mission for the church. This includes a lot of scripture study, prayers, and trying to obey the commandments the best I can. I take part in service projects with my youth groups and I try my best to look for opportunities to help others.
