Hi I'm John Daniel Porter

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a full time student here at Osage Beach, Missouri. 6 years ago, Heavenly father answered my prayers and let me marry my best friend. Because of my beautiful wife, I am now the proud father of two step children. I plan on graduating and becoming an Rn.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that this church is true. I know that there is a modern Prophet. I believe that the Holy Bible AND the Book of Mormon is the true teaching of our Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I strive like all fellow Mormons to practice and keep up my faith every day. It seems that if I have one day away from my studies, I can feel the Holy Spirit drift away from me. I read the scriptures, I follow the Words of Wisdom, and I pray several times a day. Does this make me better than most? I not only highly doubt it, I know that that is not true. Thanks to Jesus Christ, I can hold my head high knowing that he gladly made up the difference for me so I can try to be a better person. I have a few callings that I have the honor of doing. I am an assistant Youth Leader. I am an assistant Scout Leader. And lastly, I have the privilege of now being paired up with another home teacher.
