Hi I'm John

I'm an Okie, I'm a wrestler, I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I have just recently returned from being a full-time Missionary in Las Vegas, Nevada. I grew up in Oklahoma since 2001, there is a very small mormon population in the area compared to the west coast. I'm the youngest. I grew up in love with sports, mostly football, both pro, and college levels, I played football for a long time, then picked up wrestling. I now live back in Oklahoma where I am married in the Temple to my beautiful wife, who is a convert to the church. I currently have one sweet baby girl. I'm working towards owning my own company at this time.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm mormon because it's true, I've been in the church for awhile, but it wasn't till recently I found out it was true. There is a big difference in being the church and living and really believing in what they teach. I found out it was true when I decided to take the time, and research, ponder and prayer about what it said. Really for me, It all came down to the Book of Mormon, I love the Book of Mormon, if ever someone asked me 'what sets your church apart?', well there are a lot of thing, I always start with the Book of Mormon. Once I found out that the Book was true, everything else followed. Really, being a Mormon isn't hard or restrictive, but it really lets me be who I want to be.

How I live my faith

Well, I was a full-time missionary for the church from feb 09'-11', where I served the people of Las Vegas and Reno areas. I love to help others, laugh and have fun. Anytime there is a chacne for me to serve or help another, I'll try to do all I can.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

John
Well, this is the million dollar question isn't it. Well it all comes down to Jospeh Smith and if he is telling the truth. He claims to be a prophet, Jesus Christ told us how we can know if someone is a true Prophet or not, He said, "by their fruits ye shall know them", so what are Joseph Smith's fruits? Well, the Book of Mormon is one of his biggest fruits, if the Book of Mormon is true then eveything else is true as well. The only way you can know if the book is true by reading it for yourself, you can order a free copy on this website. Show more Show less
