Hi I'm Chris Briles

I am a Convert, I am the only member of the church in my family, I am a Mormon

About Me

 I am a college student. I am currently enrolled in the Wildlife and Fisheries major, with minors in animal behavior, forestry, and biology. I love to hang out with friends. I spend a great deal of time hiking, white water rafting, caving, and playing paintball. I have only been in the church for almost two years. I am highly involved and love what it has given to my life and how its shaped me as a person. 

Why I am a Mormon

 I am a Mormon because of all of the many churches that i have gone to it was the only one to feel right. In my search for religion I have visited Mosques, Synagogues, Catholic Mass, Buddhist prayer services, and a whole host of religious ceremonies. None made me feel as comfortable and at peace with myself than the Church of Latter Day Saints. I was introduced to the Church by a friend of mine and after several sessions and some interest I started talking to the missionaries.

How I live my faith

 Like any college student I find that everyday there is always something in the way of going to church. I make sure that nothing conflicts with my church schedule on Sundays by planning ahead and getting work done before or after church services. I try to be helpful and friendly to all and attend my local youth group session on campus. I'm currently a teacher for the young men's program. Its a great way to help give back to the church while helping out guys that are only a few years younger than me by being an example that they can relate too.
