Hi I'm Rory

I love soccer and snowboarding, basically anything outside. I believe laughter is the best medicine!

About Me

Im form Southern California. I absolutely love the outdoors and just about every kind of sport there is. I love people! I love talking to people and getting to know people and making them laugh. I am currently serving a full time mission in the Idaho Pocatello Mission, IPM BABY!!!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon, because I prayed to know if it was true and received an answer from God that it is the true church. The Gospel fills me with happiness and peace as I obey the Lords commandments and do what is right. I am filled with the hope that i will see my family again and that we will live together forever.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by living the way I have been taught. Since I was little I have been taught to be like Christ. So I do my best to live a Christlike life, by giving service and having a love for everyone. I do the things that bring me closer to God like praying, scripture study, and going to church. I am currently preaching the gospel on a full time mission.

What is the priesthood?

Rory
The priesthood is the authority to act in Gods name. We have the privilige of blessing our familiy members that are sick. As priesthood holders we have the same exact power that our heavenly father has! Show more Show less

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Rory
Faith is a word of action, so one way we increase or strengthen our faith is by acting on what we already know. As we have the desire to follow the example of Jesus Christ we need to act and actively do our part in following Christ. If we just simply have the desire and do not act on that desire, the desire goes away. There are many ways we can act on our desires to follow Christ. some of the ways we act is by praying, reading scriptures, by going to church, and serving other people. As we do these things our testimony grows as well as our Faith. Show more Show less

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Rory
The best way to find out for yourself if this is the true church is to go to the source of all truth, God. Pray sincerely to know if it is the true church having real intent to act on the answer you receive and He will, answer your prayer. Show more Show less

Why do Mormons perform baptisms for the dead?

Rory
Because God loves all of us, he has provided a way for everyone that has ever lived to return to him. Millions of people have not even heard of Jesus Christ , so baptisms for the dead give them an oppurtunity to accept Christ. Show more Show less

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Rory
No mormons are not required to serve a mission. Missionary work is all voluntary. Our devotion to Christ, however, drives and motivates us to want to go out into the world to serve others. Christ himself said"for i have given you an example, that ye should do as i have done to you" (John 13:15). Christ spent his entire life serving and teaching others, no matter who they were. we as members of the church do just that, serve and teach others as Christ did. It is our desire to live Christlike lives, and that sometimes means going and serving missions. Missions are great opputunities to show our love for others, just as Chrisrt did. Show more Show less

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Rory
The best way to get to know someone that i know of is to talk to them, so the best way to get to know your Father in Heaven is to talk to him through prayer. Look around in your life and you will find his presence. "If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine" (John 7:17). Show more Show less

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Rory
I look around me and see all the things that i have been blessed with. When i snowboard as i am going up the lift and as knee deep in snow, i look around and stand in awe of the creations of God. No one else could have created it! I have been blessed to live in a country with religous freedom, and raised by two amazing parents, i cant deny the fact that there is a God. But more then anything my prayers are answered. You might think "well how can i pray to someone i dont know even exists" well just try it, pour out your heart, and i promise that you will feel the greatest love and peace. Show more Show less
