Hi I'm Dean

I'm a gamer, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've been married since May of 2009, and playing rpg's since I was a kid. My older brother introduced me to them and I've gone from one gaming group to the next. I work full time for a national retail drug store, and spend as much time with my wife or playing games as I can. I even get her in on it once a week.

Why I am a Mormon

Yes I have been a Mormon all my life, not that I didn't have opportunities to try anything else. In high school my circle of friends included a few different religions, and they all told me about them (after I asked). I listened and thought about what I have in this church, and realized that I understand the doctrine of Christ a lot more here. It's a lot clearer to me, and I am continually learning more and more of what Heavenly Father wants from me.

How I live my faith

As I read the scriptures daily with my wife, I feel strengthened in drawing nearer to God. I am grateful for the opportunity to talk to him through prayer whenever I have a question or concern, and I am constantly expressing my gratitude to him for all the blessings he gives me (Especially my wife).

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Dean
Nope. I was the only one of my siblings to serve a mission. I loved my mission, it gave me some time to concentrate on the things of the Lord and strengthen my testimony. I will always have that to look back on. Show more Show less

Why is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints called Mormons or Mormonism?

Dean
It's a nickname, that's all. Originally it was derogatory and the people using it were misinformed, they thought that because we read the Book of Mormon, that we weren't Christian, and used it to separate us from them. Now it just designates one who is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Show more Show less

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Dean
Yes, yes they can, and I want to be with my wife forever. Show more Show less
