Hi I'm Johnny

"Life has no limit...if you're not afraid to get in it"

About Me

Born and raised to goodly parents in Mormonlandia (Utah). Been a member all of my life. I feel I understand the Church profoundly because of the wonderful examples of Christ-like living that I have been surrounded with my entire life. I served a two-year mission in Spain. A few years after, I graduated with a degree in History and a minor in Spanish. I now teach Spanish. Never been married. I love being outside year round and spending time with people I love. My family is one of my greatest blessings. My parents are pillars of strength and are an awesome support/example to me. I love music. I love feeling the Spirit. I love traveling and learning.

Why I am a Mormon

Like many other members I was born into a Mormon family. I know by the power of the Holy Ghost that it is the literal church of Jesus Christ. Growing up I felt the Spirit (Holy Ghost) many times and knew deep down that it was true. Before leaving on my mission I was reading the Book of Mormon and felt an overwhelming testimony of truth in my heart. I'll never forget how I felt. Since then I have had my faith reaffirmed numerous times and could never deny the veracity of the Book of Mormon or my testimony of modern-day prophets. Serving the people in the Spain Barcelona mission strengthened my personal testimony immensely. I know that my pursuit of happiness in life is dependent upon choices I make everyday to follow the Savior's example. The Gospel of Jesus Christ makes all the difference in the world. When I do my best to live it, I am the happiest I can be.

How I live my faith

I know I don't live up to this following quote but it is my ideal. I hope to one day have this kind of love for other people as I grow in the Gospel and throughout life. “Perhaps the greatest charity comes when we are kind to each other, when we don’t judge or categorize someone else, when we simply give each other the benefit of the doubt or remain quiet. Charity is accepting someone’s differences, weaknesses, and shortcomings; having patience with someone who has let us down; or resisting the impulse to become offended when someone doesn’t handle something the way we might have hoped. Charity is refusing to take advantage of another’s weakness and being willing to forgive someone who has hurt us. Charity is expecting the best of each other.” I try to be kind and forgiving. I try to make others happy by making them smile or laugh. I like doing small acts of service for others. I know it's the little things that make a difference in my life and in others.

Are Mormons Christians?

"And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins." (Book of Mormon, 2 Nephi 25:26) Christ is the center of our worship. He is the reason for hope and light in an otherwise dark world. We are forgiven for our sins because of Christ. He is the reason we have so much to be happy and grateful for. If we pattern our lives after the life of Christ then we will ultimately be our best selves and our happiest selves. Show more Show less
