Hi I'm Neil

I grew up in Oregon and Wyoming. Served a mission in Arizona. A college student and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently attending college after serving a two year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I'm currently planning on studying for Geographical Information Systems and hope to be a benefit to people through this field of study. I enjoy doing things with computers, hiking, and sports. I also enjoy spending time with my family members and communicating with others from around the world.

Why I am a Mormon

 I grew up in this faith but I wanted to know for myself that it was true. I often took the advice to read and pray about the Book of Mormon to confirm the truth of God calling another prophet with Christ's gospel today. Gradually as I read and prayed I had a overwhelming feeling that it was indeed true and I confirmed it with God. Many times I've sought God's guidence on a particular thing and as I follow it I am blessed. The gospel of Christ gives me Direction in a often confussing world and helps me understand how I can follow Christ the best way. 

How I live my faith

To start off with I served a 2 year mission to spread the gospel to others. I offered my time and funds to be able to do so. Currently right now I'll be invited to serve in some other compacity to help those people closer to home. I also have helped with youth football camps, head start programs and with scouting in the past.  Recently I have been participating in helping create events for my church group which involves singles aged from 18-30. It has been fun and enjoyable to see others happy with these activities.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

 God knows all things and all truth. So simply for me I know it's true because I've asked Him if it is true and I have also been willing to follow the answer He gives too. The Holy Ghost, or the Spirit of God, can great peace to our life and an answer from God which may not necessarily be a voice but enlightening.  Show more Show less
