Hi I'm John

I'm from Minnesota. I love playing tons of sports. I work for Hennepin County Medical Center. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I work full-time and look forward to furthering my career. I've been married a little more than 6 years and have 3 children. I love to spend time with my wife and children and when I'm not doing that you can catch me playing soccer, basketball, softball, volleyball or golfing.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up with my parents being members and going to church. I played soccer for the University and found it a struggle to give that up and go on a mission. After playing for a couple of years at the University and not knowing what I wanted to study at school, I decided I wanted to read the Book of Mormon for my own. I couldn't put it down....I read it in just a few days and after praying to know the truth of its contents I knew it was real and that I had to share it with others. I got my mission papers ready and left on a mission in just a few months. That had to of been the most important decision I have ever made. Since then I have married my wife in the temple and have began my own family. What a blessing the gospel has been in my life and the opportunities and growth of my testimony from my mission has put my whole life into perspective.

How I live my faith

I love how being a member of the church gives me the opportunity to serve in many capacities. I have been in charge of organizing events for the church, I have had to opportunity to work with our full time missionaries going out with them and sharing my testimony with others and also as a ward clerk working with finances, computer documenting, statistics, etc.

What is the Law of Chastity?

The law of chastity is a law that keeps certain things sacred in our lives. The power to create, or bring other of our Heavenly Father's children to this life, is one of the few powers that He gives to us. This law tells us that we should keep any sexual relations between only a husband and wife. There are also many other guidelines that help us keep our bodies, thoughts and actions holy. Living the Law of Chastity has blessed my life in understanding the importance of us being literal sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father. It helps me show respect especially to my wife and women in general as they are truly daughters of our Heavenly Father. Show more Show less
