Hi I'm John McQuay

I'm a Mormon and I love life!

About Me

I am a father of 5 wonderful kids and grandfather to 12. I am an elementary school teacher in Canada. I have a summer home in British Columbia where I love to ride on my Seadoo and sit on the beach with my wife and read a good book. I have enjoyed riding motorcycles and I just love the mountains. 

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I can not deny the testimony I have of my Savior. I know that he lives and loves each of us. I also know beyond any doubt that the same gospel that existed when the Savior was on the earth was restored to the earth in its fulness through the prophet Joseph Smith. I have seen the fruits of this gospel surface in my life and in the lives of others. My experience as a missionary in France and in Switzerland gave me the opportunity to share this wonderful gospel with others and to have the Spirit of the Lord confirm the truthfulness of the teachings I was sharing with the special people of these countries. I continue to enjoy sharing the gospel message with those I work with and meet on a regular basis.

How I live my faith

I am currently a Bishop in the church. This affords me the opportunity to meet with members and non-members of the Church and to feel of their goodness and desire to be genuinely good people. I try my best to live up to all of the teachings of the gospel seven days a week. It is important to me to live what I believe in. I visit regularly with members in their homes and in my office at the church building. I maintain my full-time job as a school teacher as all members who serve in our church are not paid financially. 

Are Mormons Christians?

John McQuay
I am sometimes puzzled as to why many believe that Mormons are not Christians when the name Jesus Christ appears in our official name of our Church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We believe in Christ, we talk of Christ, we teach his teachings and try in all ways to become more like him in our thoughts and actions. We are definitely Christians!  Show more Show less
