Hi I'm John

I am a father, husband, Volunteer for Special Olympics, student, police officer, fire fighter , and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I live in Missouri and work in Public Safety. I have been married for 10 years and have two children ages 9 and 6. From 1993 to 1995 I served a mission for the Church in St. Louis Missouri. During this time I turned acquaintances into great friends. This is why I have returned to live in Missouri among these wonderful people.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in Utah and the Church influence was everywhere. I however chose to be different. I was baptised when I was 8 years old and participated off and on in the scouting program, and that was the extent of my church interactions. When I was about 17 years old I saw a commercial on television advertising the church video "Our Heavenly Fathers Plan." This movie touched my heart stronger then anything ever had. I chose to attend church on a regular basis and began to study the scriptures. I have seen blessings in my life that never would have been possible if I had not called for the video.

How I live my faith

In the line of work I am in I see alot of negativity and unchristian acts everyday. I work with people who choose to use the Lords name in vain and do not participate or tollerate such things. My fellow workers know my religion and that I am actively participating in my faith. Now when coworkers use any foul language they apologize. It is not always easy to live my faith, but I know what is expected, there is no guessing about what is and is not acceptable to the Lord. I know I can do my best to follow the Lords plan for me.

Do Mormons practice polygamy?

This question usually comes in the form of asking how many wives I have. The answer is one, and then I explain that the practice was not done by all church member and has been discontinued. Show more Show less
