Hi I'm Loren

I am a United States Sailor, I am married, I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and for the sacrifice He made for all mankind!

About Me

I am a young brother to 4 older brothers and 3 older sisters. I served a full time mission in Carlsbad, California. I love my wife so very much, I am a United States Sailor serving my country, to keep this land free and my family safe. My wife means everything to me and she will be giving birth to our first son. We have been married since March and met in the singles ward, dated for a month till we got engaged and married three months later!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church of Jesus Christ, and like everybody else I have had personal struggles and gotten lost along the path and couldn't find my way, but the greatest thing I have learned here on earth is the healing power of the Atonement of Jesus Christ. During my trying times while growing up I never really knew the true healing power of the Atonement, until I had to turn to the Lord Jesus Christ. During that time I was changing for the better and I was becoming a better person and by the end of all the grief and heartache, I had a change of heart and was a completly new person. We have a loving Father in Heaven who loves each and every person, and wants the best for us. During that time I truly found my own testimony of Jesus Christ and His Atonement. Even here on my mission I gained a stronger testimony of the Prophet Joseph Smith and I know with out a doubt that he did see God the father and His son Jesus Christ and they did speak to Joseph Smith. I know the Book of Mormon is true and that Joseph Smith did translate the Book of Mormon into the English Language. I know this because the Holy Ghost has testified to me that these things are true. If you truly read the Book of Mormon and ponder it in your heart the Holy Ghost will testify to you that these things are true.

How I live my faith

I live my Faith by serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for 2 years. The most famous quote I have heard as being a missionary is, "Practice what you teach." It is a true quote cause people these days aren't really keeping the Commandments of God, and it is a very easy thing to do and if we live the 10 commandments we will be a happier people and this world will be a better place.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Well you can find out for youself if you pray to Heavenly Father in the name of Jesus Christ if these things are true. But you have to do your part and put forth the effort to find out for yourself. Read the Book of Mormon and Pray about it cause that is the only way you will ever find your answer. Show more Show less
