Hi I'm Chris

I am a returned missionary. I like sports and learning new things. I am a Mormon!!

About Me

I am a normal young adult. I like games, school, and videos. I am the second of seven kids and just returned from a two year mission in Veracruz Mexico. I speak Spanish and will be entering college soon.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a family that was also raised in the gospel. At one point in time though, I began to doubt. One family vacation we visited Kirtland, Ohio where the early church began. We visited church historical sites and one in particular stood out to me. We were in a room where the prophet Joseph Smith received revelation directly from God about how to conduct His church on Earth. I received a strong feeling that he really received those revelations there and since then have received more and more. I know this is the only true church on the face of the planet and I know that anyone with a willing heart and a deep desire to know the truth can come to know it as well.

How I live my faith

I am currently asked to teach a group of men from the ages of 18-30. I am also helping out the missionaries with suit and tie to find those that are willing to hear the message that they share. I am also one that gets asked to teach and to substitute classes for the youth and am frequently relied upon even at church.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

 A testimony is just a bigger way of saying what we know to be true. We gain this testimony by doing one simple thing asking God to know if it is true or not. Every single member of the church has gone through this process to receive their very own answer to the truth and to gain their own personal testimony. It is a strength that can't be borrowed or bought, but something that must be earned through diligent seeking and asking for the truth. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about family?

Family is the most important aspect of every human being directly under the importance of God. The family is the basic unit on Earth and the way God has established that we can achieve true peace. Also, I know that our families aren't just meant to be an earthly aspect but an eternal one as well. When we obey the commandments of God and complete the requirements that he asks of us. Our families truly can be together forever and what would heaven be like without them. Even if we think they may be a little crazy and sometimes get on out nerves, the most rewarding experiences we can have is with our parents, kids, and siblings. I know that families can be together forever if we follow the simple plan that our loving Heavenly Father has set up for each and every one of us!! Show more Show less
