Hi I'm Mitch

I grew up in Utah. I love sports. I'm a missionary in Louisiana. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 24 years old. I come from an amazing family where I am the youngest of 4. My family means the world to me and I love spending time with them. I love to be active and be outdoors, camping, hunting, fishing, fourwheeling, etc... I have a big passion for sports. I have played most sports competitively but my favorites are basketball, football, and volleyball. I love utah because we get all the seasons and can go boating in the summer but also get lots of snow to hit up the slopes in the winter. I also like to relax and just throw in a good movie or hang out with friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of this faith because it is what makes me happy. Ever since i was a little boy I had the typical dream of being a college basketball player. I thought sports were what made me happy. When I finally reached my goal I realized real quick that it wasnt everything I had hoped it would be. It was just different than I had imagined. My second year of playing I had the opportunity to play on a team where at least 9 or 10 out of 15 guys were LDS and most were return missionaries. I also had a brother that had recently returned from a mission. Everytime I was around any of these guys I could see how happy they were and how happy i wasn't. As our team went to church together and made our faith more inportant than the game I began to see that I had those two things backward. If I wanted to feel the happiness that I could see in them then i needed to change. I began to make changes in my life and as i did i began to see what was most important. I began to feel heavenly fathers love and the power of the atonement more abundantly in my life. I could feel and do feel that happiness that i wanted. I am now currently serving a 2 year mission so that i can help people to feel of the love that heavenly father has for them and i love it. Heavenly Father has plans for all of us and just wants us to be happy but we have to look in the right places for lasting happiness.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving in louisiana as a missionary and I teach people all about how we can feel the atonement of Jesus Christ in our lives. I also teach about the plan that heavenly father has for us and how we can find true and lasting happiness in it. I try to live in a way where I can be an example to others as I try to follow Christs example. I live my faith by taking it a day at a time. There are new challenges and obsticles to over come everyday but as we face them with confidence and trust our Heavenly Father we can overcome anything. I have learned that as we keep the commandments and endure trials things become in a sense easier, not that the temptation or trial is lighter, but we become stronger.
