Hi I'm John

I grew up in Texas, then moved to Utah when I was 24.

About Me

I enjoy reading, hiking, and camping. I'm single and going to college.

Why I am a Mormon

As a small child my parents were active members who loved each other. They unfortunately divorced when I was seven and due to a few things both fell away. Many bad things happened because of that because we did not have Christ in our lives. I love my family and couldn't handle the way they would treat each other with the bickering and fighting so I distanced myself physically and emotionally. Because of that I had plenty of time to think of were things went wrong why they couldn't fix it and then later how I could fix the way I felt. When I was around 22 I realized the only way I would be happy again was to rejoin the church and about that time my older brother was leaving for his mission. Two years later when he came home the first thing he said to me before he even said hello was that he had found the peace and happyness we had when we were boys. He then moved to Utah to go to college and I followed. I have been through a few hard times but have not regretted it. I have been able to focus on what God would have me do. This church and it's teachings have given me back my hope for life not only on this world but for the next.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by loving my friends and neighbors and just trying to show people that I care about them. I like to find service projects and people in need.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

No we help many people with different faiths. Show more Show less

Why do Mormons believe in the Bible?

John
Simple put the Bible is a record from the jews and if we did not believe in their record how could we believe in our Book of Mormon whos writers are descendants of Israel. It is kind of like saying you don't believe in eggs, but that chicken tastes pretty good. Show more Show less
