Hi I'm Brian

I grew up in Idaho. I love researching many different topics including about the LDS Faith. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a librarian. I love to read different types of books. My favourite book to read is the Book of Mormon. I love running, swimming, snow skiing, and mountain biking. I also enjoy visiting museums and listening to classical music. 

Why I am a Mormon

I was born Mormon. I have chosen to stay active Mormon due to the fact that I have read the Book of Mormon and have taken the Challenge in Moroni 103-5. I have received a testimony of my own which is not dependent on my parents. This experience happened l while I served a Mormon mission. guess I was a bit shaky in my testimony so I decided to take the challenge and prayed for a few hours and received an answer which has strengthened me for the rest of my life. Through my testimony I know that the Book of Mormon comes from God and not from the Devil. I continue to follow Christ's Gospel is because it just makes sense.  It helps me get to know my Saviour more than I would otherwise. I know that there is more to life than just what is here around us. I want to live with my family after this life,but would not otherwise without the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I participate in my community by going out and performing service like moving mulch in a park. I volunteer at the Mormon Cannery by helping get food ready to be canned and shipped out. In my ward I am a ward missionary where I have been assigned to go and find out if people live where the phone directory says they do.  

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Brian
Mormons do not worship Joseph Smith, they revere him like Moses, Isaiah, Ezekiel. Joseph Smith was just a man with a holy calling from God the Father and Jesus Christ. Mormons worship God the Father and Jesus Christ the Son   Show more Show less

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Brian
The Book of Mormon was written by prophets who lived on the North American Continent. They were called of God to write down what they learned about from the Spirit of God for their people and for us today. The Book of Mormon was translated by Joseph Smith from the ancient language that it was written in. Show more Show less

Why are Mormons asked to donate 10% of their income to their Church?

Brian
Other churches ask for 10 of their congregations' money. Mormons are asked to give the money to the church to help pay for church buildings and other buildings that the Church owns. Mormons donate the money because they have been given blessings from God and want to give back to him to show that they love him and want to keep his commandments. Show more Show less
