Hi I'm Justin Pearson

Bicyclist, longboard enthusiast, student and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am college student and one of the owners of a skateboard sticker business. I am someone who loves the outdoors and will take any chance to go bike, longboard, take a walk or run if the weather is nice. I also love to listen to music. Music is a way for me to release the days challenges and helps me move on. You can mostly find me on the road traveling with my family and friends. I love to find new places to travel to and to make memories with the people who mean the most to me.

Why I am a Mormon

There are many reason why I am a Mormon but the way that the LDS Church gets me coming back is the way that you feel when you listen to a Prophet of God speak or when someone shares their testimony. That feeling is the most happy that you can ever get. This feeling is caused by the Holy Ghost. After you are baptized you are given the gift of the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost is part of the Godhead and is that being that helps you communicate with our Heavenly Father. And when you hear a Prophet of God speak the Holy Ghost testifies to you that what he is saying is straight from God and is important to heed. I know that when we listen to the promptings of the Holy Ghost we can be truly happy. I know that everyone seeks after happiness and when we can attend church and to feel of Gods love, we can feel true happiness in our lives. To me feeling happy is my ultimate goal.  

How I live my faith

Every week whenever possible I attend appointments with the missionaries in my area. This helps me live the correct way throughout the week and also help spreading the word of God in my area. It is something that is awesome to experience because when I can share my testimony with others and share with them how happy I truly am to be a member of the LDS Church, it brings me this overwhelming calm that I can't precisely explain. By doing this I can show others by example and by my own word of mouth that I am a member of The Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.  

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Justin Pearson
A testimony is a declaration of the things I know to be true. A testimony is something that you gain over time by going through life's experiences and asking God if this certain thing is true. A testimony is something that cannot be taken away from me and is something I hold dear to my heart   Show more Show less
