Hi I'm Ogden
I'm middle aged (71 ), married to a great lady;we've been married 49 years and have five sons. We were sealed in the Logan Temple in 1966. I love to sing! I've sung my share of solo's. Me and my hunny spent five years in the US Air Force.
Why I am a Mormon
I am a Mormon because I wanted to know if the Book of Mormon was true, and if Joseph Smith was truly a Prophet of God. I received that answer one night after I had read the Book of Mormon; I prayed to know the truth. I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that it was true, and I knew if it was true, that Joseph indeed was a Prophet of God!
Why do Mormons go on missions?
Because of their love for their Brothers and Sisters and their love for Heavenly Father and the Savior.
How can your talents and gifts bless others?
Everytime I sing in Church I can feel my Spirit bearing Testimony of the truthfulness of the Gospel.
Why/How do you share the gospel with your friends?
I share the Gospel with my friends because I love them and love my Savior. What I'm doing right now, is a wonderful way to share the Gospel.
How has attending Church services helped you?
Attending Church means I get to attend Gospel classes, but most of all I get to partake of the Sacrament each Sunday. and last but not least, I get to enjoy the sweet spirit of my fellow Saints.
Think about your everyday activities. What are things you act upon each day where you cannot see the end results? How does faith move you to action?
When I pray, I can't see Heavenly Father, but I know he's there, hearing my prayer. At times that I need guidance, I can feel the influence of the Holy Ghost, speaking to my mind and heart.
How I live my faith
We have daily prayer in our Home; that includes asking a Blessing on our food and Family prayer at night. My wife and I have families we're assigned to visit. We attend the Temple once a week.
