Hi I'm Johnnie

I'm a Mormon. I'm also a convert to the church and I was baptized when I was 16.

About Me

Growing up my parents always told me that I was a Mormon, but we hardly ever went to church. The only time we went to church was when visiting my grandmother in Oklahoma. I was very active in Boy Scouts and my father was my scoutmaster throughout scouts. When my family and I moved, my siblings and I were introduced to the missionaries. The three of us were baptized together shortly after my 16th birthday. My siblings and I along with my father became active in the church. Until I graduated from high school, I continued to be very active and my father and siblings stopped attending church. I joined the Navy and married an active member of the church. I have been sealed to my wife and my three children have also been sealed to me and my wife. I have had numerous calling in the church and have a strong testimony to the gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that the LDS church is the true church. I can't think of being anything else. This is were I need to be and my family also. The gospel and scriptures are true and of the Lord Jesus Christ. I know that we have latter-day prophets and church leaders to guide us to the truth of the Lord. Everyday my testimony of the gospel is strenghened.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by staying true to myself and the gospel. I pray often and study the gospel. I attend church with my family and try to set a good example for my children. I have multilple callings and responsiblilty to my ward. My current callings are the Young Men's President and scoutmaster for our Boy Scout troop. Which give me plenty of opportunity to teach and help young men in the church. I discuss my beliefs and testamony with my coworkers and friends.
