Hi I'm Zach

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

About Me

I served a mission for my church by spreading the Gospel in Illinois for 2 years. I want to be a Social Worker and help kids with behavior problems and such, thats what I have been studying at school. I currently work with children that have Autism. I LOVE music and have participated in many choir and musical theater programs. Life is good!!!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the LDS Church. I have always believed that it was true. Mostly because my parents and leaders told me it was, and I believed them. But I have gained my own personal conviction of the truth for myself. I have studied. I have pondered. And I have prayed. I know that this is the Lord's true church. I know that because of a personal experience with the Holy Ghost. For me it is not about physical evidence, even though there is plenty of that. I know it is true because of feelings I recieved as I pray, and because of the good things that have happened in my life because of my membership in Christ's true church. God blesses those that keep his commandments. And I am happier when I keep the commandments then when I do not. Because these spiritual experiences that I have had, I know that God lives and that He loves all of us. I know we are all His children and He knows us on a very personal level. I know that He is our Father, and that we are created in His image and likeness. I know that Jesus Christ is the Savior and Redeemer of the world. I know that He lived and died and lives still for us. He lived the perfect life, and suffered and died for us, so that if we will repent and come unto Him we can live with God again. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and that he restored the Chruch of Christ in these times. I know that the "Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ" is just that. It testifies of Christ and provides a further witness of His divinity. I know it is more of the word of God. I know that Thomas Monson is God's prophet today. He leads and guides the church under the specific direction of Christ Himself. I know these things because of my experiences, and because the Spirit of God has testified of these truths to my heart. I love my Savior. :)

How I live my faith

I try to follow Christ's example by helping others and being kind. I try to share the gospel through my words and my actions.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Zach
They will talk about Jesus Christ. They will talk about Christ's church being on the earth today. They will talk about how this came to be. They will talk about propehts, modern and ancient. And coming to have a personal relationship with God, and seeking answers from Him. They are very nice and polite. Having been a missionary, I know that my intention was never to argue, or pry or be rude in anyway. I always wanted to simply share happiness with people. To invite them to take all the good and truth that they had and allow them to see if what we had could add to what they had. :) Show more Show less
