His parents taught him to pray, read the Bible, and to have faith in God.

Today the Mormon Church has over 15 million followers and has grown to touch many parts of the world with its 83 thousand missionaries.

But he was confused about the early Christian church in a new America and was searching for a new direction to live his life.

Sunday school really impacted my life by showing me what I was missing out on and that you can always learn new things. Around my freshman year in high school, I decided to get baptized and confirmed into the church which was a big step in my spiritual life. Being baptized and confirmed into the church was scary because you have this sense that you have to be better and always succeed. At the age of 15, I decided to take God into my life and continue to learn what he has to offer. Confirmation classes went for about a year as we studied the bibles and certain scriptures to prepare us for our test.
