Hi I'm Justin

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the oldest of 5 kids in my family, now living away from home at a local university studying mechanical engineering - struggling with the challenges of life on my own: balancing class, homework, work, and a social life. I just got back from Argentina where I was serving a two year mission for the church, helping others to find the joy that I have in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? Basically, to sum it up in a sentence: Because I know it's true. Being in Argentina, talking with everyone I could about the gospel, I met a lot of people from other religions, and learned a lot about their beliefs. The other religions preached good things, and we shared many beliefs. I'll be honest, sometimes I even had doubts about my church. But the thing that held me strong was the Book of Mormon. I had read it and prayed to God to know if it was true - and I knew it was true without a shadow of a doubt. Because I knew it was true, I knew that Christ had restored His Church again upon the earth and that He had called prophets again to guide us back to Him. For all the good and convincing things that the other churches preached, they did not preach this. I know that Christ truly does live, and that He loves each and every one of us individually. He wants us to come to Him, and to live with Him forever. This is why He restored His Church - the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints: so that we could clearly know how to come back to Him. The Book of Mormon is His tangible evidence to us that His Church is once again on the earth. That's why this Book so important. That's why I know. That's why I'm a Mormon

How I live my faith

How do I live my faith? Day to day, I guess. Between everything that I have going in my life - school, work, and a little bit of social life - I always make time for the Lord. Saying my prayers every night and day, reading from the scriptures every morning to get me going, little things like that. I also have assignments in my ward, such as teaching Sunday School - teaching about the scriptures and how they can apply to our lives today, and visiting members of our ward to share a message and see how they are doing. That's how I live my faith.
