Hi I'm Nelson Bassett

I was born and rasied in the US. I like Cartoons and Alternive Hip-Hop/Electro/Alterentive. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am on a mission right now, but I do plan on going to college to work on being a comedian. I've lived a round the United States because of my dad's work. I say the best way to enjoy life is laughter. I love seeing people laugh. If some one is sad, the best way to make them happy is getting them to laugh. I also enjoy listening to music. Hip-hop, Alterntive, and Electro are the best types to listen to. I love jammin' out to this kind of music. I really love cartoons. They are another way to make people laugh. They may seem childish, but it makes life a little lighter. They bring things to life. I love my family. I reall enjoy being around them. We have more fun than if we were by ourselves doing our own thing. We get along so well that it doesn't make sense at times.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the church my whole life. I love being in the LDS faith because every one does their best to show love to one another, reguardless of past mishapps. Even though I grew up in the church, I had to be presonally converted. I could only run on my pareant's testimony for only so long. So, I made the choice to read the Book of Mormon and gain my own testimony of it. I did, then I prayed if it was true. It wasn't at that second, but over time I gained the knowledgeby a warm feeling and I thought about it. No way this could be flase. It's Hard to make up the Book of Mormon, in fact the whole LDS faith. If it is made up, which it isn't, then it wouldn't be here.

How I live my faith

Well, I'm a missionary for now. I, along with many others, go around teaching the gospel to others. I do my best to serve those that are in need, even if I don't know them. As a missionary I help and teach in any way possible. I also do serivce. Serivce is the best way to show your love and faith in someone, even if you don't know them.

Do Mormons practice polygamy?

Nelson Bassett
At the beginning of the church, in the 1830's, we did do polygamy. That was because we were really small, lot's of men and husband's were killed, or anything like it. But, it ended in the 1890's when the prophet, Wilford Woodruff, ended it. We, since then, have not done so. If polygamy is brought up and is told about this church, it is not us. It is somebody else. The point is that we don't do it. Show more Show less
