Hi I'm John Balderree

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in Missouri and was one of 2 members in my school growing up.

About Me

 I am married to a wonderful wife named Heidi and we are blessed with 4 outstanding children.

Why I am a Mormon

 I love the scriptures and I am grateful for the peace and direction they provide. I know Joseph Smith was a prophet of God as I spent my youth years in Missouri and went to Nauvoo each summer for youth conference. This is where my testimony started to grow and it has evolved from there. Everything good in my life and my ability to meet and overcome adversity I attribute to my membership in the church. We would love to have you in our home to experience Family Home Evening any Monday night. Just give us a call

How I live my faith

 Through service to others and treating everyone as a child of God.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

John Balderree
 No but each of us are encouraged to be good examples and share what we know to be true with others. We are asked like many faiths to be good disciples of Jesus Christ however. Show more Show less

Why is authority to perform a baptism important?

John Balderree
Because we believe in eternal families we know that which we do here under property authority is recorded and bound in heaven as well. Show more Show less
