Hi I'm Grant

I'm a Mormon. I am currently a missionary serving in the Phoenix, Arizona mission.

About Me

I love video games, eating and making new friends. Growing up I wasn't what you'd call the "social butterfly" type. I mostly hung with a small group of friends and I spent a lot of time alone. I've gone through some hard stuff in my life and for a while I was trying to get people to sign petitions just to make ends meet. What got me through these hard times was the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the phenomenal love and support that I received from my church and my family. Right now I'm trying to share the glorious message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ with everyone I can so they can experience the same blessings that I've experienced and so that they can experience "this mighty change of heart".

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a member of the church because I've read the Book of Mormon and received my witness from Heavenly Father that this church is true. I've seen the joy and happiness that comes from living the Gospel and that's why I want to share that testimony with the people in Arizona. I know that my Heavenly Father loves me! That means that everything He does, He does for my benefit. I know that the Book of Mormon is true. I know that Joseph Smith was called of God and that he translated the Book of Mormon by the power of God. I know that Jesus Christ suffered for my sins and died on the cross. I know that Jesus is my Savior and without Him I would have no chance to return to God. I know these things are true and I'd invite anyone reading this who has a sincere desire to learn about the church to read the Book of Mormon and find out for themselves if it's true.

How I live my faith

As a missionary I leave my work, school and family behind, go out and find people everyday and teach them about the Gospel. As a missionary I constantly study the scriptures and find ways in which they apply in the lives of those I teach. I also help them make commitments that bless their lives and lead them back to Christ.

What is the Law of Chastity?

Grant
The law of chastity is a law God has given us where we abstain from sexual relations before marriage. Once we are married we stay 100% loyal to our spouse. Another thing about the law of chastity is that we do not view pornography or anything that can arouse feelings of lust. We also refrain from masturbation and do not participate in abortions or homosexual relationships. Another part of the law of chastity is that we do not cohabitate (or live) with our boyfriend or girlfriend. Show more Show less
