Hi I'm Joe

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a CPA certified public accountant with 30 years of experience and I like bowling and off-road motorcycle riding. I love BYU Brigham Young University sports mostly football and basketball. I like to read.

Why I am a Mormon

I like the principle of modern revelation, that God speaks to a prophet (like Moses) today. Almost all members have a responsibility in the church. All worthy male members of the church hold the priesthood. I know God speaks to us through modern prophets, scriptures, and personal revelation. I know that God lives, that Jesus is the Christ, that Joseph Smith is a prophet, that Thomas Monson is a prophet, and that the scriptures (Bible, Book of Mormon, Doctrine & Covenants, and Pearl of Great Price) are true.

How I live my faith

I serve as ward emergency preparedness co-chair. I served as a clerk in my church calling. I trained other clerks how to use the church computer software and how to keep records of local church budgets and local church attendance. I served as a missionary for the church in the United States (Oregon & Washington).

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Joe
We believe that if a husband and wife are married for eternity in an LDS temple and live worthy lives after that they can be together forever. We believe that the children born to them can also be with them in heaven if the parents and children are worthy. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about Jesus Christ? Do Mormons believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God?

Joe
I am grateful that Jesus Christ died for us and that he lives today. I am glad we have the testimonies of his resurrection in Matthew 28 "He is not here:for he is risen" (Matthew 28:6), Mark 16 "Go yes into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature" (Mark 16:15), Luke 24 "Jesus himself stood in the midst of them" (Luke 24:36), John 20 & 21 "Then were the disciples glad when they saw ...the Lord" (John 20:21), and 1 Corinthians 15 ("He was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve, after that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once" (1 Corinthians 15:5-6). We also have the Book of Mormon account of his visit to the people in America in 3 Nephi 11-28 "This is my Beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased, in whom I have glorified my name--hear yes him" (3 Nephi 11:7 ). We have the testimony of Joseph Smith & Sidney Ridgon in Doctrine & Covenants 76:22-23 ("for we saw him even on the right hand of God"). I know that Jesus Christ lives today and loves us and will help us in all of our trials. He has been a great strength to me in my life. I am so happy that we have a Prophet (Pres. Thomas S. Monson), his Two Counselors, and the 12 Apostles who testify of Christ today. I know that "with his stripes we are healed" (Isaiah 53:5). Show more Show less
