Hi I'm Siope

I enjoy spending time with my wife, and children! My family is everything to me, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been happily married going on three years to my beautiful sweetheart and best friend. I am a father of two great wonderful children. I work as an Inside Sales Representative while studying to become a Pharmacist. My hobbies are making a fool of myself for my children, Rugby, Handball, Riding bikes, spending time with my little family, and anything else thats chill and kick back you can definitely find me right there in the middle of it all. 

Why I am a Mormon

The reason why i am a mormon is simple. I am a mormon because i found out for myself that the true and full gospel of Jesus Christ is only taught within The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Church isn't just a way of life. It isn't an every Sunday, or every other Sunday way of living. Its the way you hold your self as a human being, as a child of God, as a follower of Jesus Christ and His teachings and examples. I am a Mormon, because of my faith.

How I live my faith

Each day is a struggle. There is no such thing as an easy life. I strive hard to live my life the way the Lord and our Heavenly father would want me to. I test my faith and live my faith, that is how i believe is the best way to gain stronger faith. 

Mormons believe Jesus Christ is their Savior. Why do we need a Savior?

Siope
 Personally i know i need a Savior because i am not perfect. My Heavenly Father, or God, or the Big Man upstairs is perfect and wouldn't want an unperfect being like me to be in his presence. So therefore i need a Savior to save me from my very own mistakes. I admite at times i can do better, but i admite as well that i try as best i can. The Savior Jesus Christ makes it possible for me to return to live with my Heavenly Father again. That is why i personally need a Savior. Show more Show less

Why don’t Mormons have paid clergy?

Siope
I have come to understand for myself that from the times of the Old Testament, even until these present days that we live. Many if not all, disciples and apostles, and even Jesus Christ himself was self reliant. We as Mormons hold responsibilities and duties as individuals in our church, but we do it voluntarily. We belive in doing good for the sake of doing it. Show more Show less

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Siope
Allowing him in, will increase our faith in him. Try to just let go and let him take over. Give him a try. Start by finding out what is it about Jesus Christ that made him who he was and why he did things the way he did them. Once you do that you will realize for yourself of the great and marvelous things you, yourself can do. You will realize your very own potential. Maybe not your full potential, but your understanding and point of view will start to become more crystal clear. For me personally that is how i have increased my faith in my Savior Jesus Christ.
