Hi I'm Peter

I love to sing, I love Jesus Christ, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a 24-year-old college student. I'm majoring in history, and I plan on going to law school. I currently work in a dentist's office where I take care of letters, computers, and other small things around the office. I'm engaged to the woman of better than my dreams, and I love experiencing everything with her. I enjoy being with friends and family, and I love nature and music, especially singing.

Why I am a Mormon

Even though I was born in the church, I had to make up my own mind about staying in it. I can still remember one particularly difficult night that I needed to find some comfort, so I read a chapter in the Book of Mormon. After reading something that really touched me, I decided that I needed to know, independent of what anyone else told me, whether the Book of Mormon was really from God. I had always been taught that if I prayed with faith and sincerity, I would receive an answer. Although I had always believed it to be true, that night I learned for myself that the Book of Mormon was indeed true scripture. Since that night, I have continued to learn more about the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and I have seen tremendous blessings in my life that I know have been the results of living what I know to be good and true. I have had many trials, but I have been lifted up by God and the people He works through on numerous occasions. I would not be where I am today if not for my faith in Jesus Christ. I have experienced countless blessings from living my faith, and that is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I love to participate in the Church. I serve as a home teacher, or in other words, I get to visit multiple people once a month to share a spiritual message with them. I also try to keep up to date with important happenings in their lives. I try to act like the Savior as I go throughout my daily life, and I find strength as I turn to the Lord for guidance and comfort. Reading the scriptures and praying bring me closer to the Lord, and being around good friends helps me to become a better person.
