Hi I'm John David
I'm married to the most amazing woman in the world and I am the father of a handsome little boy and lovely little girl. For hobbies I like to scuba dive, sing, play the guitar, learn foreign languages, and eat food!!
Why I am a Mormon
I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I have found teachings and doctrine that bring me and my family great stability, happiness, and peace in this turbulent world. Our invitation as a church has always been this: "Bring all the good that you have, and come let us see if we can add to it!"
Please share your feelings/testimony of Joseph Smith.
Joseph Smith was just a man, but I know that he was a man that God called to be an instrument to bring about the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. He had a vision of God our Eternal Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, which started the great organization and truths which we enjoy today.
How can your talents and gifts bless others?
Hmmm...my singing may or may not bless people depending on who you ask :-) . I like to use my talents and gifts to make people smile and be happy.
Why/How do you share the gospel with your friends?
Why wouldn't you share something that has brought you so much peace and happiness! I share the gospel with people through teaching, acting as an example, and inviting them to read the scriptures and come to church with me.
How has your knowledge of the Plan of Happiness changed/benefited your life?
I lost my grandparents and miss them, but through my knowledge of God's Plan of Happiness, I know that our separation is temporary. I know they continue to exist, with all their fun, quirky personalities in tact!
Please explain the part prayer plays in your life?
Prayer means that I have safety and guidance in whatever I'm doing. Unlike our cell phones, the reception to reach God through sincere prayer is always at 4 bars and the battery life lasts forever! Prayer allows me to speak to my Father in Heaven and thank and ask Him for blessings. I know that when I am sincere, He listens and responds (in His own way and timing).
How I live my faith
I enjoy life with no regrets! Also, my relationships have deeper meaning to me because of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I believe that we can experience heaven right now because that is how I feel about my life!
