Hi I'm Soren
Currently I am on a mission for the LDS church in Minnesota, I end that in January. After my mission I'll return to Arizona where I'll go to college there. I love to read books. Mainly fantasy, sci-fi, and historical fiction. I just love to be entertained by a good story! I really enjoy playing video games, especially with my friends or family. I play sports with my friends whenever I can. Indoor soccer is really fun with a bunch of people. So is basketball, football and softball. I worked at a chemical fertilizer company for 3 years.
Why I am a Mormon
I was born into a Mormon family but I've come to know for myself that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the Lord's church on the earth again. The Book of Mormon is something that has really helped me to gain that knowledge. As it says in Moroni 10:3-5 in the Book of Mormon, I read it, pondered about it, and then prayed to ask God if it is true. I know it is true! You can have that same knowledge if you do the same.
How has the Book of Mormon brought you closer to God?
The Book of Mormon has helped me come closer to God by helping me understand more about His Son and His mission that He fulfilled while on Earth. It helps me to see that God is still speaking in this day and age, that He loves us very much and wishes us to hear more of His word. Basically it has helped me know God better! The more you know God the closer you can feel to Him and see how He is working in your life. I would encourage you to read the Book of Mormon, and see if you understand God better by the end. I promise that you will!
How I live my faith
I live my faith by serving a mission and teaching those who are interested in learning more about what the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints believe. I also love to help people around me! That's one of the biggest reasons I had in deciding to serve a mission for two years. When I finish that I shall serve the church and others in whatever ways I can!
