Hi I'm Randy

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 God has blessed me with so many wonderful blessings and opportunities. It was my privilidge to marry a beautiful daughter of God and then be blessed with nine wonderful beautiful children. Seven healthy powerful boys and two sweet georgeous girls. Already those that are married have children that total eighteen grandchildren! We live close enough to each other that we can play together, work together, camp together and so forth. The greatest times that I have are associating with this wonderful family. We are a power sports family and love the outdoors with biking, boating, shooting, snowmobiling, etc. With my sons we enjoy a family construction business that allows many of us to work together as well.

Why I am a Mormon

It has been my opportunity to grow up in a family that were members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints. My parents and brothers and sisters were members when I was born and naturally I went to church with them and learned about Jesus Christ. When I was nineteen I left home to go on a mission (as often young men do as members of the church). As I was out in the world teaching people about God and His son Jesus Christ, I found it absolutely necessary to find out for myself if what I was telling people was true! I launched into studying, praying sincerely, and asking God privately if He was real, if His son was in Fact the Savior of the world, and if the Book of Mormon was the word of God. After I put forth the effort and humbled myself enough the Holy Ghost wittnessed to me with great power an answer that is undeniable. I received a testimony about these things. Now with that testimony it is my responsibility to become converted, gain faith, do the will of the Lord. I absolutely love the life that God has given to me and love the blessings of the Savior and the blessings that come from being a member in His kingdom.

How I live my faith

In the Book of Mormon there is a captivating story about 2000 young men that became soldiers to fight for freedom. They were called the "Stripling Warriors". When they went to battle they were saved many times from death even though fellow soldiers were dying all around them. They were spared death because they lived the will of the Lord with "exactness" as was taught to them by their mothers. You must read this story. I try and live my life the same way. I know I fall short but I get up and try again. It has been an honor for me to work in the church as a teacher, a scout leader, by singing in the choir and doing a myriad of things. This has given me great joy as I have tried to help and serve other people.

Mormons believe Jesus Christ is their Savior. Why do we need a Savior?

Sometimes people shy away from learning about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because of what they have heard how "Mormons" are supposed to live. Mormons are not supposed to drink or smoke. They are to pay tithing and offereings. They are to go to church regularly, keep the sabbath day holy and give service to others. I feel this scares some people away from learning about mormonism because they assume that if they get into learning about the doctrines they may have to behave the same way. Well guess what? It is true. People who gain their personal testimony of the truthfulness of the Church will enjoy the blessings of these things and more as they exercise their faith and keep these commandments of God!

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

Randy
As Mormons we are taught that there is a universal law that says when we do something good there will be blessings to compensate for all good. On the opposite end when we sin or do something bad there is a punishment affixed. I know theses principles to be true. The sins that are committed are to be paid for. Jesus Christ paid for all sins for us as we accept Him and do his will. If we do not accept his atonement we will pay for our own sins. I know this law is real! I have been blessed beyond my ability even to comprehend. I know Jesus Christ is the giver of all blessings. Show more Show less

What is the Relief Society?

Randy
You may ask, "what would be in it for me to know about the Mormon church". I would say that the motivation that drives us all is to obtain feelings. Show more Show less
