Hi I'm Louis Cheney

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a high school math teacher who loves to play racquetball in his spare time. I have been married to my wonderful wife for 8 years now. We have two sons and one daughter.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I have seen so many blessings from following the Lord. I enjoy meeting new people who are my age and want to better their lives. I also like the support system that is built into our church. Going to the Mormon Church affords the opportunity to have a whole new family of people who are there to support you.

How I live my faith

I go to church for 3 hours on Sunday. Sometimes, I play the cello during meetings at church. I love the cello. My father taught me to play the cello. I live my faith by trying to do unto others as I would have them do unto me.

How is the Book of Mormon different from the Bible? How did Joseph Smith obtain the “golden plates” or Book of Mormon?

Louis Cheney
The Book of Mormon is amazing because it talks about Christ! Joseph Smith was shown by an angel where the plates were buried in the earth. They were buried by an ancient prophet. He then translated the plates by the power of God. Show more Show less
