Hi I'm John

I'm Diabetic, I Run Marathons, I Love Tennis. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm from North Ogden, UT. I love to play tennis and hit the ball around, I've been running for about 4 years now and i Love it. Nothing fells better than an 8 Mile run. I've had Diabetes for 10 yrs now and pretty straight forward i love having Diabetes. I wish the world could be Diabetic. My favorite food is Hot Dogs. I love Hanging out with Friends and Snowboarding or playing Sports. I like to think of myself as a free bird.

Why I am a Mormon

I've had to many things happen to me in my life where i knew that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the Gods Church on the Earth. I wasn't the type of person that went from church to church looking for the truth. I was blessed to be raised in it. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I think that everyone struggles at some point in their life in wondering if there is a God or if it really matters if we worship him. I have wondered the same things in my life and from living the Commandments Given to us from God through a living Prophet my life will forever be blessed. Through Praying with a sincere heart i have come to know that God is there that He does love us all and its the Feelings of having the Gift of the Holy Ghost is why i am a Mormon. Every particle of joy that we have, every emotion that we go thru, is given to us from God to live life to the fullest and following God's Commandments Enhances life simply enough and that is why I am a Mormon!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to be the very best i can no matter what opposition is against me. Being patient and enduring well the trials that i am put thru every day. Prayer is a huge part of my faith its what helps me clarify all the questions i have ever had. Its thru prayer and scripture study that has kept me the happiest in life. Right now i am serving as a missionary in the Indiana, Indianapolis Mission. I am going door to door preaching the gospel to all those that are ready to here it. I'm doing just as Jesus Christ directed his apostles "19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen." (Matt 28:19-20). I know that this gospel is to help all of Gods Children. Service is a huge part of my life i wouldn't give up 2 years of my life to do what i am unless i knew it was what God wanted me to do and that it could help others. I do service any where from building houses for those that need it, to visiting those in the hospitals that don't have visitors. any thing i can do to help others live life more enjoyable is what i strive for in life.

What is the Law of Chastity?

John
The Law of Chasity is pretty much keeping yourself Clean before marriage. Meaning having Sex is a very sacred thing between Man and a Woman and it should be treated as such. The purpose of Sex is to create life and to express love between a man and a woman. These things are taught to be saved for marriage not doing any of these things before marriage. God Really wants all of us to be Spiritually and Physically clean and he has given us the emotions that attract the opposite sex to each other for a reason. He wants us to develop self mastery and self control over these emotions and wait until marriage so the love you developed wont be vandalized and your children can be raised in a loving home. Keeping the Law of Chasity includes dressing Modestly. Girls that dress modestly in my opinion are the most beautiful. They come off as those know that they are daughters of God and that they are going to keep there bodies pure from showing them off to others so that others won't have lustful thoughts after them. No Pornography: Pornography is Spiritually destructive and will ruin your life if you partake in any of those activities. So don't do it don't do it. Trust me Show more Show less
