Hi I'm Nolan Johnson

I'm from Mesa, Arizona. I love working, jet-skiing, and being with my family! I'm a college student, a friend, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am just like any other average kid, wondering thru life trying to make the right choices. I like to sing and to dance. Some of my greatest memories were those special nights dancing under the stars. I am currently trying to expand my talents and skills. I recently picked up a new hobbie of playing the ukulele. Life is not to just coast thru, but to be enjoyed and loved. I love my family and am so greatful to be able to be with them for all eternity.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? I have been a mormon all of my life. The title means nothing unless you truely have the personal experience behind it. I was baptized when I was 8 yrs old, but was converted many years later. The first time I really felt the Holy Ghost and the "True Love of God" was when I read the Book of Mormon all night and decided to say a personal, outloud prayer to know if the things of which I was reading were true. The experience was amazing. The peace and comfort I felt at that time was truely from God. That experiment of Faith changed my life forever.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through my actions. I love to serve others at any opportunity I get. I strive to be an example to my friends and neighbors. I am not Christ, but I pray and hope that everyone I meet may see Christ in me.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Nolan Johnson
We can increase our faith in Jesus Christ by doing many things. I like the "Three Legged Stool" idea. We need to pray, read the scriptures, and go to church. Without one of those three, our stool, or testimonies, can only last for a little while. Over time we start to fall further and further. When we start doing those simple steps, our testimonies grow as well as our faith and the love we feel towards God. As we continue to feel the spirit and strive to keep the commandments our faith will grow stronger. Show more Show less

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Nolan Johnson
The real question is, "Why wouldn't families be so important to Mormons or anyone else?" We are all God's children. He is our Father. Families are meant to be together forever. For all eternity. Not just for this life. This is only possible through the power and authority of God. Man can get the authority to marry in this life, but the authority to seal someone together for all eternity is only given to man by God. Families are forever. Show more Show less
