Hi I'm Beau

From Provo Utah and I love Basketball and i love being a mormon!!

About Me

I grew up in Utah and in the church. I love studying and playing basketball. I want to study physics in college. I moved away from home to California for college and am studying there.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church and have had a wonderful family life. My parents have given me everything that i have ever needed. My siblings and I have gotten along very well my whole life and are best friends. Some of my favorite times growing up were going up in the mountains with my family and having family Barbeques. My parents and other peers always taught and showed me the importance of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and why we should live it. I would always listen and follow them it was the easy thing to do. Then i moved away from home for college and was one of the only members of the church in my school. Things were more difficult and that is when i had to find out for myself why i was here in this life. I started by reading the Book of Mormon. By reading through the Book of Mormon i learned how to truly worship God and follow his plan for us, the Plan of Happiness. It has brought joy into my life and is the greatest thing ever for me. The Restoration of the Gospel has meant everything. Heavenly Father loves us and tells us what is right for us and what will bring us happiness just as a father will tell his kids what is right for them even though sometimes we don't think that it is best for us at the time. I know this too be true and will continue to follow this throughout my life.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a mission for the church in the Boston Massachusetts Mission. It is my way of trying to be a true disciple of Jesus Christ and helping others come to the truth of the gospel. Some would say that it is a sacrifice to leave playing college sports or school to do this, but I know that it is a privelge to be here and serving others. As a missionary we go out and teach people about what we believe and how they can find out for themselves what our Heavenly Father wants of us. Right now i am serving in the student congregations and mostly working with students it is a lot of fun. Also we do other sorts of service to help out the community.

Is it true that Jesus appeared in North America after his crucifixion and resurrection according to the Book of Mormon?

Why don’t Mormons have paid clergy?

Mormons don't have paid clergy because it is a blessing and great opportunity to be able to serve the Lord and also others. Having a calling in the church you get paid in different ways than money and the ways that we are paid is in blessings from our Heavenly Father. Show more Show less
