Why I am a Mormon
I was raised in a christian home but my family was not very tolerant of Mormons. I choose to become a Mormon shortly after marrying my wife who was a member. We were trying to decide which church to attend together. We went to her church and I felt very welcomed there. We went to the church I was raised in the next week, and the feelings of hatred coupled with the animousity that they showed towards Mormons was so bad that we just got up and left. They proclaimed to be a christian church but they showed no love towards their fellow man. I have since learned so much about Christ and His love for us that I can only pray that my family will one day see past thier blindness and follow Him in his true church.
Why do Mormons do family history or genealogy work?
It is not only Mormons who do genealogy. I do it because I like to know things about my families history. The main reason we do it is so that we can do the Temple ordinances for our families who may not have been given the chance to learn of Christ's Church while they were alive on this earth.
How I live my faith
I am currently serving the Lord as a Ward Missionary. I did not serve a mission while I was young so He has given me the chance to serve one now.
