Do you want to chat with a missionary?

We are happy to answer any questions you may have.

Hi I'm Quinn

I'm a college student, I rock out to music in my car and oh yeah, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Well for starters I'm the oldest nine. My mother is black and my father is white. I love my family and friends. They're awesome, supportive and I feel having that love and support is essential for getting through life. Besides spending time with them, I also enjoy drawing. It's been a passion of mine since the age of three. In addition I snowboard, dance, act, lift weights and eat. A guy has to have hobbies to keep himself occupied, right.

Why I am a Mormon

Even though I was born and raised in the church, I still had to gain a testimony of the gospel and for me it has come over time. Following what my parents have taught, reading the scriptures, praying, going to church, listening to the prophet, practicing all those principles and making those choices is how I've received that witness that the church is true, that the Book of Mormon is true and that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. Until we start experimenting and ask God if it is right we won't receive that confirmation that comes through his spirit or the Holy Ghost and that is why I'm a Mormon or LDS.

How I live my faith

By simply following the commandments and trying to better than I was yesterday. I do my best to read the scriptures and say my prayers daily. I also try to be a good example for my siblings by following the example Jesus Christ set for us and currently I'm serving as a full-time missionary.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Quinn
We believe God to be our Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ to be our Savior, and that Joseph Smith was a prophet called by God to restore the church Christ had established. We honor and respect Joseph Smith, but worship Heavenly Father.  Show more Show less

What is the First Vision?

Quinn
 The First Vision is when Joseph Smith, then a boy at fourteen, prayed to God to know which church was the true church. He recieved his answer when Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ appeared to him and revealed to him that Christ's church needed to be reestablished.   Show more Show less
