Hi I'm Christian

I'm a husband, father, student, programmer, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Utah. My mom is from Alabama and I've always felt like my home was a little piece of the South out in the West. I lived in Mississippi for a year and in Georgia for two and loved it. I love to be with people and if I'm alone a go crazy. People are my life, family, friends, strangers, you name it. I'm going to college to become a lawyer.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because that's what God wants me to do. I'm not a Mormon because my parents want to be or because my friends think it's cool. I'm not a Mormon because I like to go to church for three hours every week. I'm a Mormon because I've personally asked God if it was right for me and He has told me that it is. And that makes me the happiest, when I'm doing what God wants me to do.

How I live my faith

I live my faith everyday in what I do. To me being a Mormon is more that just going to church on Sunday. It's about living the standards that bring you closer to Jesus Christ. By doing what I learn every Sunday, every time I read the scriptures, and by following what God has told me to do. Everyday of my life I live my faith.

Why is authority to perform a baptism important?

The proper authority to do anything in God's name is essential. God chooses those who He wants to hold that authority or priesthood. When someone holds that authority or priesthood then they are authorized to perform sacred acts in the name of Christ such as healing and blessing the sick, binding a family together for this life and the next, and baptism. If it isn't done by someone who God has authorized then He will not recognize it. The proper authority, or priesthood, only exists in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints or the Mormon Church. Show more Show less
