Hi I'm C.J.

I am Asian, an only child, and I am a Mormon

About Me

I the only child in my family. Right now I am currently serving a mission in the Pennsylvania Philadelphia Mission. This is experience has changed my life. I love to play lacrosse and volleyball. I'm hoping to study sports medicine for my career. Besides sports, I love listening to music. There never was a day where I didn't have my Ipod with me.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church, but like every other member I had to find my own testimony. I always wanted to serve a mission, but my actions didn't show it. I guess being a mormon was just like a social status to me. I didn't like church. Work and sports were more important than church activities. I didn't have a testimony. But as my friends were coming home from their missions, I saw the change the gospel had brought into their life. You could see the blessings from living the commandments, reading the scriptures. Eventually I just got on my knees and prayed and prayed. I told myself I wouldn't get up until I got an answer. And The Spirit answered me in a way that I could not deny. I can't thank my family and friends enough for the wonderful example they have set, for helping me stay on the right path.

How I live my faith

As I study the scriptures, pray often, and teach others, I am gaining a stronger testimony of Jesus Christ and his teachings everyday.

What do Mormons believe about family?

C.J.
My family means everything to me! They raised me to be the person I am today. We believe that family is just as important to Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ as it is to us. Since God is our Father in Heaven, we are all his children. Meaning we are one big family! And like any loving parent, He desires eternal happiness for all of us. Because of that, the teachings of Jesus Christ are designed to help earthly families become eternal. Show more Show less

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

C.J.
We believe that the way Jesus Christ has organized his church is perfect, being the same yesterday, today, and forever. That means if he has called prophets in the past (such as Moses) and his way is perfect, then we believe that His way has not changed today, and that he still guides us through a prophet because he still and always will love us!
