Hi I'm Dennis

I grew up in the Philippines. I play the piano and violin. I love my family. I am a Mormon.

About Me

Working in healthcare gives me opportunities to meet different people in various phases of their lives. It gives me opportunities to share my own personal experiences in dealing with life's stresses and how the gospel becomes my haven.... I like outdoor activities like hiking, archery, swimming, surfing, road trips and a lot of other stuff.

Why I am a Mormon

After reading the Book of Mormon, I knelt down and sincerely asked Heavenly Father with real intent if the book was true. I had the most wonderful experience. I felt an indelible convincing force from the Holy Ghost confirming unto me the truthfulness of the book. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has all the keys required to perform all the ordinances of salvation necessary to enter the Kingdom of God. I am a Mormon because I know this is true.

How I live my faith

Jesus Christ, our Savior, posted this question, "what manner of men ought ye to be,... even as I am." The answer to that very question guides me on how I should live my everyday life. The Savior invites us to be like Him. And, to be like Him, we have to know who He is and to develop chrislike attributes. To have hope, patience, humility, charity and love, virtue, knowledge of the gospel, to be obedient, and to have faith in the Savior are but a few of these attributes. But as we continually study the scriptures, we gain more knowledge of who Jesus Christ is. And when we ponder on His invitation, "come, follow me", we will know what He means. As we perform those things He has asked us to do, we will become as He is. Living my faith means following His example, hearkening to His words, and sharing His gospel to others.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Dennis
 Just like what James had taught in the scriptures, "If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God that giveth to all men liberally and upbraideth not And it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering." James 15-6... By sincerely asking in prayer can we know the truthfulness of all things. Show more Show less

Are Mormons Christians?

Dennis
Absolutely! The official name of the church is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. This is the Lord's church. Hence, it is named after Him. Latter Day Saints is used to distinguish us from the Church of Jesus Christ in olden times. Jesus Christ is the center of our lives. It is through His Atoning sacrifice that we can come close to Him.
