Hi I'm Talon
When It comes time that we meet our maker will we say," My life reflect thy will."
I grew up in Overton, born and raised there. I was your typical kid going around setting peoples backyards on fire, Getting caught in paint sheds, and a whole lot of other wholesome activities. I'm anything but ordinary, but I feel that its a good thing. I like video games a lot. Although I like being around friends and family a lot more then video games. I tend to play them with my friends and family. You get the best of both worlds that way! I was raised by a lot of people thus making my family very large. Though no one could replace anyone from my immediate family. They are the creme of the crop. The reason for who I am stems off of who my brother and sisters are. If I am truly a good person it is only because I reflect the goodness of my brother and sisters. I am the youngest of four kids. I was born to goodly parents who loved the lord. I also love metal music, well I love all music in general but metal is where I can get my frustration out. "Judge not, that ye be not judged". The words of Christ for you to sit and ponder on.Remember this as well. There will always be time to come unto Christ. As long as Christ is still in the heavens we all have more time.Time to repent and time to change. No one is hopeless, but there is some that have no hope.Forgive those who need it. I'm a firm believer in the thought that when we forgive someone who really wronged us. We cover a multitude of our own sins! We are God's children It's time for us to start acting like it.
Why I am a Mormon
We each have a story, mine is this. In short when my mother passed in November of my freshman year of high school. It was tough much of the time I felt alone, but with being Mormon there is significant comfort. Knowing just what becomes of us after this life. Knowing that life continues. That gave me peace. Also knowing that I would see my mother again brought me peace. Did it make me better right from that instant? no, but it gave me the strength to continue. "The Lord loves all his children", is a phrase that is in his church and because he loves us all he expects us as "his children" To love one another. Ive found that in this church, but that's not why I'm Mormon. The reason why is because I know that this is the Lords church. Ive read The Book of Mormon and know it to be true. Today people tend to want proof of such things, physical proof. I'm a man on faith. Faith is believing in something you cannot see. So if you truly have faith you don't need to see everything. Can you see God? Most of us say, no. How do you know he exists? We pray to know these things. So if you really want to know if The Book of Mormon is true. Pray about it! Quit being caught in willful ignorance and pick up the book and read it. Then pray about it. Really its not hard. Put off your foolish pride. Forget all that you have heard about it and find out for yourself. This will bless your life. This is either the most important message for the whole earth or it isn't, find out. God will answer you.
How I live my faith
How do I live my faith? By living of course! There's no better example of faith then the life that you lead. In the scriptures it talks about how you can tell something is good or evil saying, " By their fruits ye shall know them." What a perfect explanation on how others can see if we are christian or not. If people really knew what they were saying when they say, "Oh, I'm a christian." Then they would realize that what they are saying is, is that they are a follower of Christ. Meaning you follow his example. How do we know what his example is? By reading the scriptures and studying how Christ lived here in mortality. I'm sorry, but to me talk is cheap. If you are a christian then you better show that you are a christian, act like a christian, and BE a christian. Because when both you and I stand at the judgement and say, " We are Christians." We will be judged on how well we have represented Christs name. (See Revelation 20:12-13) That's how I live my faith.By living the way Christ would. Now am I perfect at it? No,but I do strive to be the best person I can and allow god to shape me into what I need to be. Some say that his grace will automatically do that for you. With no real effort on your part. That's false, we can only receive grace when and only when we show that we are committed to the lords cause. I believe in grace. I believe it saves us. I don't believe it is given to us against our will.We have to show that we want it. By living a Christ centered life.
