Hi I'm Isaac

I grew up in the Western United States, I am a budding historian, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 I am a husband and a father who has lived most of the last ten years in the mid-west. My wife and I met in Chicago while we were both attending graduate school although we were in different schools and in different programs. We spend most of our free time right now chasing after our young children, which we consider time well spent.

Why I am a Mormon

 It comes down to belief for me. I believe in God the Father, and in His son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost. I believe that God and Christ appeared to Joseph Smith and told him to restore the church of Christ on the earth. I believe these things because I have prayed about them and received confirmation from the Holy Ghost that they are true.

How I live my faith

 One of the biggest ways I live my faith is by trying to be kind to others, regardless of how much I know them and under the circumstances in which we meet. As with many goals in life, this is a long-term process which I try to improve upon as time goes by. Fortunately, the only person I need to be better than is who I am right now.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Isaac
While we believe Joseph Smith to be a modern day prophet, we do not worship him. Rather, we worship God the Father and His son, Jesus Christ. We believe Joseph Smith restored the full church of Jesus Christ in the latter days we also believe that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, similar to Adam or Moses. So while we believe that Joseph Smith is integral to our faith, just as we do with Adam and Moses, we worship Heavenly Father and our Savior. Show more Show less

What is Mormonism? OR What do Mormons believe?

Isaac
 Mormons share many beliefs of other Christian churches, including a belief that Jesus Christ is our Savior, that the bible is the word of God, and that everyone on the earth is a descendant of Adam and Eve. Central to all of our beliefs is that of Jesus Christ, that he is the only way whereby any man or woman can saved in the kingdom of heaven. Show more Show less
