Hi I'm John

I love jazz, soccer, tennis, just hanging out, and eating sushi. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student at Brigham Young University Idaho. I like to play most any sports and hanging out with friends. I did swimming tennis and soccer in high school. I love listening to Jazz and playing my alto saxophone. I'm the youngest of 6 and love hanging out with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up mormon but never asked if it was true. I just went through the motions and felt good every once in a while but didn't know if it was true until I asked. I was in college and I was studying the Book of Mormon when I was challenged by my teacher to pray to know that the Book of Mormon is true. I knew this was something I needed to do and as I prayed and read the Book of Mormon I received that answer. I am a mormon because I received an answer from God that this church is true. I know that God loves me and will love me no matter what. I know it's true and I can't turn away from it. It's what gives me hope, and gives me strength.  

How I live my faith

I served as a missionary in Las Vegas Nevada and dedicated 2 years of my life to serving God. I live my faith by doing the best I can each and everyday. I help people whenever I can and try to be like Jesus. He set the example for us when He was on the earth and I strive each and everyday to show the as much love, and care for others as He did.

What is Mormonism? OR What do Mormons believe?

We believe in God the Eternal Father and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost. That we are all children of our Heavenly Father and He loves us and will love us no matter what we do. Mormonism is Christ Church established on the earth in these days. That Christ Church has been restored to the earth today. And because it has been restored we must have faith in Christ, repent daily, be baptized by the Priesthood authority of God, receive the gift of the Holy Ghost and endure to the end. That is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints or the Mormons and some of the principles we believe. Show more Show less

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ meaning that it helps us better understand why Christ needed to go through what he went through for us. The Book of Mormon speaks of Christ, prophecies of Christ and lets us know who to look for, for a remission of our sins. The Book of Mormon is comparable to the Bible and using both helps us to better understand what we need to do to return to live with God. There's only one way to know what the Book of Mormon is and that's to read it and sincerely pray and ask yourself if the Book of Mormon is true. You will receive an answer. It may take a little while but you will receive an anwer if you want to know it's true. Show more Show less

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

We need a Savior because we are going to make mistakes in this life. God knew this and because He knew this, He provided a Savior to atone for our sins. This doesn't mean we can do whatever we want, but means that as we search out God and those we have hurt and ask for forgiveness, we can be forgiven. As we ask for forgiveness from God and the person we've hurt, feel sorrow for what we've done, and promise to never do it again, we can have that guilt we feel when we do wrong lifted, and we can come closer to God as we do so. Knowing this show's how much Our Heavenly Father loves us and wants us to return to live with Him. It is only throught the Savior and His sacrifice that made it possible for us to return to live with God. Jesus Christ died for my sins and died for your too. He lives today and can bring peace into our lives as we look towards Him and ask for help. Show more Show less

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Throughout history, God has chosen and provided us with prophets such as Noah, and Moses to guide and direct us back to Jesus Christ. And because God loves all His children and we believe that God is the same yesterday today and forever (Hebrews 13:8), then I do believe that we have a prophet on the earth today who's name is Thomas S. Monson. I have listened to Thomas S. Monsons words, prayed about those words, and have seen that by listening to his words I have come closer to my Savior Jesus Christ. I know that there is a prophet on the earth today who guides and directs us because God loves us and is going to provide us with whatever we may need to be able to return to live with Him again. And I know that God will do nothing but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets. (Amos 3:7) I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet and that Thomas S. Monson has been called at this time to be God's prophet on the earth today. Show more Show less

How can we stop the spread and influence of pornography?

We can decide today that we will never indulge in pornography. We must teach our kids and grand kids the harmful effects of pornography on our minds, hearts, and relationships throughout life. We must make our home a safe haven. A place where that cannot enter. We must have self control and a desire to do what God would have us do. We must constantly be standing for what we belive and standing strong to our faith. Show more Show less
