Hi I'm John

I grew up in upstate New York and resided in the Mohawk Valley for 35 years. My career is in health care. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Child of God Husband, Father, Grandfather, Son, and Grandson Citizen, Health Care Provider, and Mormon Health fan, Sports fan, and History fan.

Why I am a Mormon

I was reading the Bible when I came came to Matthew 7:7 one night. The words "Ask, and it shall be given you" struck a chord deep within me. I got down on my knees and asked if what I was reading was true and if Jesus Christ was real. I received my answer over the next few months from missionaries of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I was 23 when I joined the Church. That was 3 decades ago.

How I live my faith

One day at a time. I strive to make some improvement, overcome some challenge, serve someone, and stay close to God every day.

What blessings can we receive through the gift of the Holy Ghost?

We can receive a personal witness of truth, a personal prescription that guides us toward salvation, and a personal protection from the sins of this world. Show more Show less

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is the most correct of any book on earth, and one can get nearer to God by abiding by its precepts than by any other book -- see Introduction of the Book of Mormon. I read from the Book of Mormon every day. As I study, ponder and apply its precepts to my life, I find greater peace and joy in my life. Show more Show less
