Hi I'm Reese

I'm a Latter-Day Saint.

About Me

I'm a father of three and married to the most wonderful woman in the world. I work as a job coach for the Utah Department of Workforce Services. I enjoy leisure reading, firearms, and spending time with my family. Religion and politics are my two favorite topics of conversation.

Why I am a Mormon

Though baptized at the age of 8 and raised in an LDS family, I didn't become converted to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ until the age of 20. When looking for answers to my life's difficult questions, I turned to God in prayer. Through His grace I found peace and the unshakable knowledge that I am His son. All of my greatest joys have come as a result of being a member of the Lord's church: Preaching the gospel in Ukraine, Being married to my wife for time and eternity, Knowing that my wife and children will be with me after this life, Being trusted to hold the Priesthood of God so that I may bless my family and serve my God.

How I live my faith

Imperfectly, to be sure. I try to read the Lord's word daily, as well as speak to my Father in Heaven in daily prayer. Attending my weekly meetings and visiting members to walk in the light and fellowship *1Jn 3:7* and to strengthen *Luke 22:32* and be strengthened. I have had the pleasure to serve in various capacities in my local congregations, whether it's teaching the youth Sunday School class, as a missionary or simply by leading music in a meeting.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Reese
In 1831, a Methodist preacher named Ezra Booth asked Joseph Smith Jr., "Do you believe that you are a prophet, like Moses or Abraham?" The Prophet replied, "I don't think that what you believe and what I believe are all that different. You believe that God used to talk to man. I believe that he still does." In this simple and humble way, the Prophet Joseph answered Ezra Booth's question in the affirmative. Since the time of Joseph Smith Jr., there has been an unbroken line of prophetic succession to Thomas S. Monson - the current President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and the Lord's prophet on the Earth. Show more Show less
