Hi I'm Rusty
I'm a father of 3, husband, drummer, business owner, and soldier in the US Army.
Why I am a Mormon
I was brought up a Mormon but soon realized I needed to decide what I would choose to believe... I finally decided that I needed to first understand what being a Mormon really meant. A Mormon is a Christian but there is a difference between us and other Christians which is our belief in The Book of Mormon as another testament of Jesus Christ and a companion book of scripture to the bible. With this understanding I read the book with an open mind, studied it out in my mind, and prayed about the truthfulness of what it contains. I got my answer gradually through warm feelings that were not loud but soft, strong, and undeniable. My testimony of this one book of scripture changed everything for me and my life is in a much better place because of it. From my conviction of The Book of Mormon came a clarity and understanding of how to better live my life in a way that leads to joy and happiness.
How I live my faith
I don't impute my beliefs on others, I only share them in a way that makes sense. I strive to live my faith in a way that is consistent with my beliefs. In each and every calling, assignment, connection, conversation, etc... I try to apply the principles of love, faith, and understanding.
