Hi I'm John

I'm a college student. I love language. I want to teach college. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I'm a kid trying to get into college at Eastern Washington University. I love language and art. I'm way into Psychology. I want to get as much education as I can, a doctorate in linguistics, and I want to be a professor at a well-respected university. I like to play tennis, swim, and hang out.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because the Church and the Gospel were within my reach from the time I was born. It was something I could always access, and I was given an abundant amount of opportunities to accept and live the word of God. I began to make the big decisions near the end of high school. I read the Book of Mormon. I gained a small, budding testimony of the truth, and I decided to nurture it. So much of my identity is tied to my discipleship of Jesus Christ. It is who I am. I love him and know that he lives.

How I live my faith

I attend church every week, and try to participate, or at least to increase my understanding of what's being taught there. I have duties to perform in my ward. I'm in charge of the records of all the members of the ward, or congregation, in which I live. That means I have to put in a lot of time on the computer updating, training, and inputting data. I love my calling because it gives me the opportunity to organize and improve the functions of the ward.

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Mormon women are emotionally and spiritually strong, very intelligent, and diligent and hardworking. They share the work in the church and in the home with their male partners and brothers. Mormons believe in a strong sense of identity tied to the gender of the individual. We believe that women have characteristics different from men, and vice versa. The equality of men and women is taken very seriously. Men are encouraged to be men, and women to be women, but neither is regarded as superior to the other. Show more Show less
