Hi I'm Reed

I am from Missouri. I'm a BYU Idaho Student. I dance, I fence, & I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I love to play football, fence and ballroom dance. I served a mission in the heartland of America: The Great State of Wisconsin! I am currently a Political Science student at BYU Idaho I love to read books about historical fiction. I love analyzing and solving problems. I spent most of my growing up in Missouri. I have 3 sisters, 1 brother and I have been raised by good parents who have taught me to love the Lord. I love missionary service! I love it because I get to see the Gospel directly work upon people and watch the positive changes that they make in their lives.

Why I am a Mormon

 I am a Mormon because i want to be. I know that Jesus Christ lived, died, and rose again on the third day. I stand as a witness that Joseph Smith restored the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the Earth in its fulness, that he did restore many plain and precious truths that were lost in the meridian of time, and that he did translate the Book of Mormon. I have read this book and i know that it is true and does bear forth good fruit. I have found through prayer and personal revelation that the church is true and the Prophet is real and there are twelve Apostles, and i love to listen to their words. I love the scripture Joshua 2415 "....as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord" 

How I live my faith

I live the the life that my Father in Heaven would expect me to live. I know there is no one set time in which I will suddenly be perfect, so I need to live each day as though Christ were to walk beside me. My life is an eternal progression of trying to be an obedient servant of the Lord at all times. As a student at a church school I can live everyday in a spiritual atmosphere where I can be the best example that I can be.

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

Reed
 The Book of Mormon is a work of scripture comparable to the Bible. The Bible has been through many translations and changes, and because of them things may seem confusing or perplexing for doctrine and principles. The book of Mormon deals with the people of America in ancient times. it has been through on translation and is very helpful to clarifying and supporting the bible while also offering truth and light necessary to our salvation. It takes nothing away from the bible. I love the bible and the Book of Mormon dearly. Show more Show less
