Hi I'm German

I'm a full time student.I'm from Massachusetts. I'm a dancer and a weight trainer.I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is German and I'm from Massachusetts. I am a break-dancer and I enjoy latin dancing . I became an eagle scout right before I turned 18. I am also a a seminary graduate. Seminary is an early morning scripture study which takes place from 6:00 am-6:50 am, every morning, of every school day. It is a four year program and one is enrolled while they are in High School. I was on several teams in High School including cross country , wrestling , soccer and track . My favorite teams are the Red Sox, Celtics, Patriots, Bruins and the Revolution. I am studying Exercise Physiology and I eventually want to become a Physical Therapist. I have grown up in a single parent home for almost a decade now. It has not been an easy road, but the savior has helped lift the burden off of my shoulders as I have lived the gospel. I must say that the gospel and faithful members of the church helped me stay on the straight and narrow path. I have been grateful for their examples and I know I will have the privilege one day, to do the same for others that are in need. I would like to take the time to share with you, the greatest knowledge that I possess. I know through the power of the Holy Ghost that God lives and that Jesus is the Christ. It is through Jesus Christ and his atonement that we can find healing and solace in difficult times. I know that he lived and he died for each of us because he loves us. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

Why I am a Mormon

Both of my parents are converts to the church. I grew up in the church and I was baptized when I was 8. We were less-active in my early years so I did not have the privilege of attending Primary on a regular basis. We moved to Arizona for a year and then came back to Massachusetts. Then we started going back to church actively when I was 12. My baptismal records were lost somewhere before moving back to Massachusetts. As a result, I was taught by the missionaries and re-baptized at age 12. We remained active ever since I was baptized again.However, I don't think I truly felt converted until I went on a mission. Going on a mission has changed my life. It has taught me to love people the way the savior loves me and all of his children. I served my mission in California. Reading the Book of Mormon helped me to become more like the savior as I applied its teachings and principles. I have such a strong desire to be pure and keep all of God's commandments the very best I can. I want to continue to live the gospel to help others feel the same joy, love and peace that I feel in my life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by keeping the commandments and following Christ's perfect example as best as I can.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

German
The Atonement of Jesus Christ includes 3 things: 1) Christ's suffering in the Garden of Gethsemane. 2)The crucifixion and death of Jesus Christ on the cross at Calvary. 3) The Resurrection from the dead. Through Jesus Christ's suffering, death and resurrection , we can conquer our suffering in this life and live again in the presence of God.We can be cleansed from sin as we exercise faith in Jesus Christ and repent of our sins. We must also be baptized for the remission of sins and endure to the end. Show more Show less
