Hi I'm Grant/Koob Meej

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 22 years old, I'm the 2nd to the youngest of 5, and I have the same struggles and joy's as everyone else my age. I love to be with family and friends, chances are that if they enjoy doing something, I enjoy it as well. I'm going to school in Entrepreneurship. I served a Mission when I was 19 to the beautiful Hmong of Minnesota. While there my interest was peeked to the difference in languages and cultures. After returning home I started to learn Mandarin Chinese and had one of the best times of my life teaching English in China. While there a friend and I went on an excursion to find Hmong people in Southern China. After going from village to village, bus to bus. We stumbled on a tiny Hmong village deep in the mountains where we stayed, played, and talked. I had the strongest feeling while there that even with all the billions of people on the earth, God knows and loves every single one of us. Kuv muaj 22 xyoo, kuv tsev neeg muaj xya leej. Kuv muaj tej kev txhawj xeeb ib yam li txhua tus muaj. Kuv nyiam nrog tsev neeg thiab phooj ywg mus ua si. Tam sim no kuv kawm ntawv qib siab. Kuv mus ua tub txib thaum muaj 19 xyoo. Lub sij hawm ntawd ua rau kuv nyiam kawm txog pej kum lus thiab tib neeg kev noj kev nyob. Thaum txog tsev kuv pib kawm lus suav thiab muaj lub cib fim mus suav teb qhia lus askiv. Thaum nyob tid kuv nrhiav tau ib lub zej zos hmoob me me. Lub sij hawm no ua rau kuv paub tias, txawm tias Vajtswv muaj menyuam coob npaum li cas, nws hlub peb txhua tus.

Why I am a Mormon

Life always has it's ups and downs, but when I turned 13, life got substantially more difficult. My family moved twice in two years making for the awkward time of making new friends and learning a new place and school. But towards the end of my 8th grade year, life threw a curveball that I couldn't grasp a hold of. Up until that point in my life I always knew that God lived, or at least I knew my parents knew that God lived. Though, it was time for ME to know that he lived, that he loved me, and that he was aware of my situation. One night I prayed wanting to know the answers to the questions I thought I had been so sure of. After praying I opened up the Book of Mormon and started to read, I still to this day don't remember the verse, or even the chapter. But I do remember a feeling that I had never felt before, start in my toes and continue clear up to my head. The feeling was unmistakably the spirit. For the first time I can think of, I knew that God lived, that his Restored church is here, that it's true, but also, that our questions and concerns can be answered through the Book of Mormon. Tej thaum peb lub neej khiav mus tau zoo, tej thaum tsis tshua zoo pestsawg thiab no yom? Thaum kuv muaj 13 xyoo, kuv lub neej pib nyuaj zuj zus mus. Tau muaj ob xyoo uas kuv tsev neeg tsiv ob zaug. Thiab muaj abtsi ntxiv ua rau kuv xyov tsis paub lub neej no puas muaj qab hau dabtsi. Thaum ntawd mas, muaj ib hmo uas kuv thov ntuj saib seb peb puas muaj ib tug Vajtswv? Yog tias peb muaj, nws puas hlub peb? Nws puas paub tias peb nyob ntawm no? Thaum kuv thov tag kuv pib twm Phau Ntawv Maumoos, muaj dabtsi uas kuv piav tsis tau kom meej txog, tab sis kuv hnov tus Vaj Ntsuj Plig dawb huv kov kuv lub siab kiag. Yog xub thawj zaug kuv nco qab tus ntsuj plig ua li no, ua no pab kuv paub tias Vajtswv nyob, tias nws Lub Koom Txoos uas raug txum tim rov qab los yog lub tshawj no, thiab tias nws muaj tseeb. Thiab tias Phau Ntawv Maumoos kuj pab peb teb tej lus noog ntawm lub neej no.

How I live my faith

Life is so busy that it's sometimes difficult to remember the most important things for us to do. I had learned that as we bear testimony, our own testimony then becomes strong and grows as well. On top of going to Church, reading my scriptures, praying... I recently have started going out with the missionaries more to help with this effort. Some of the most spiritual times I've experienced have been in the past few months. I had started to talk to a friend about the gospel and the church. Not long after this he too has been baptized a member, shortly after his baptism. He has taken hold of the flame in going out with the missionaries to help others know of his testimony and conversion. The joy that comes from the gospel is unlike anything else. Peb lub neej khwv khwv zuj zus mus no mas, txhiaj li pib nyuaj nco qab tej yam tseem ceeb tshaj. Kuv kawm dua ib zaug hais tias, thaum peb faib peb zag lus tim khawv rau noob neej, peb zaj txhiaj li rov muaj zog kom khov khov. Muaj dabtsi ntxiv kuv ua kom coj raws li vajtswv lub siab tsuas yog mus tshawj, twm vaj lug khub, thiab thov vajtswv. Nov yog qhov uas kuv nrog cov tub txib mus qhia txoj moo zoo no. Muaj ib zaug uas kuv pib nrog kuv ib tug phooj ywg sib tham txog txoj moo zoo no thiab pab nws nkag siab peb ua neej nyob vim yog dabtsi. Tsis ntev tom qab ntawd nws los ua kab ke raus dej, tsis tas li ntawd xwb. Nws kuj pib tshaj tawm txoj moo zoo nrog cov tub txib kom neeg mam paub tias lub koom txoos no muaj tseeb. Tsis muaj dabtsi uas piv tau rau qhov uas txoj kev thaj yeeb nyab xeeb uas txoj moo zoo no faib pub rau peb.
