Hi I'm Dayne

I'm a Theatre Lover, a Brother, a Singer and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving a 2 year church mission in Mexico. I love Musical Theatre, singing, playing the piano, and photography. Music is a big part of my life; it is one way that I feel closest to my Savior Jesus Christ. I love my Savior Jesus Christ and my Heavenly Father with all my heart! I feel honored to be serving him and teaching his children in Mexico more about him.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that God has restored His church here on the earth again through the Prophet Joseph Smith. He wants us to follow His commandments and obey him so that we can return and live with him again. I was born into the Church and taught by my parents how to live righteously and keep God's commandments. I have found that the only times I am truly happy in my life are when I am following Christ, keeping His commandments, and living his Gospel. I have gained a testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ on my own because of my upbringing and I know that he is our Savior and Redeemer. I also know that His true church has been restored and is on the Earth today, lead by true living Prophets and Apostles.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being an example to all of those around. I seek out opportunities to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with my friends and other people I come in contact with. I enjoy reading the scriptures and attending church to gain spiritual knowledge and to feel close to my Heavenly Father.

Can husband and wife be together forever? Do you believe that families will live together in heaven?

Dayne
Yes! Most churches only teach that marriage is for this life only and only lasts "till death do us part." We believe and know from modern day revelation that husband and wife and be sealed to one another for time and all eternity-meaning in this life AND the next! Through this sealing, parents and children can be sealed to one another and live together as an eternal family in heaven. Show more Show less

What is the Book of Mormon?

Dayne
The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. It goes hand in hand with the bible and its teachings. The Book Of Mormon is a record of God's dealings with the people who lived in the ancient Americas at the same time the Bible takes place. It goes along the same time line of the bible in a sense.

Who was Joseph Smith?

Dayne
Joseph Smith was a true Prophet of God that restored Christ's true church to the Earth today. Joseph Smith was quite confused about what church to join because he visited many, but they all taught different doctrines. One day he was reading in the book of James chapter 1 verse 5 and it said that if we lack wisdom, we should ask God and he will enlighten our minds and understanding. Joseph Smith decided to put this scripture to the test. So, one spring day in 1820, he went to a near by forest or grove of trees and prayed to God to know which of the Churches was true. God and His Son Jesus Christ appeared to Joseph Smith and told him that none of the churches were true. Through the guidance of God and Jesus Christ, he later restored Christ's true church that was once on the Earth when Christ lived on the Earth. Show more Show less

Are Mormons Christians?

Dayne
Absolutely! The name of the church is The Church Of JESUS CHRIST of Latter-Day Saints. We follow the example of Jesus Christ and we worship him as our Savior and Redeemer. We do all we can to live righteously and keep his commandments so that we can return to live with him someday. Show more Show less

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Dayne
You can know if what we teach is true by sincerely praying to God asking to know if these things are true. You will then receive a confirmation through the Holy Ghost. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about the Bible? Do they regard it as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Dayne
We believe the Bible to be Holy Scripture and the true word of God. Along with the Bible, we also believe The Book Of Mormon to be the true word of God that goes hand in hand with The Bible. Like the Bible is the account of the people in the Middle Eastern area, The Book Of Mormon is an account of the people on the American Continent during the same time as the Bible takes placed.
