Hi I'm Orie

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in Utah. I love basketball. I attend college. I am the oldest in my family.

About Me

I love to play basketball. I really love any sport. I am a college student. I recently returned from a mission in Sacramento California. There I was able to gain a huge understanding of the Atonement of Jesus Christ. I love the outdoors, the views and plants are so interesting to me of how god created the world. I love to be the best that i can be, sometimes i get angry at myself for not being what i should be, but i understand that with Christ i can be made perfect eventually. I love to work with animals. when i was younger i would show animals at the state fairs. I love to work hard and get the job done.

Why I am a Mormon

My testimony of this gospel is as follows... i grew up in the church. it was a great experience for me. there were many times that i would always do things that would make my parents happy for me and that would help me be better in my life. my testimony was that of my parents but i would just piggy back on their testimony that Jesus Christ was the Savior and that He had set up His Church again on the earth though a living prophet. but there came a time in my life if i wanted to choose to follow it or not. I always knew that if I needed to make a decision i should always look to God. So i did i asked God to tell me the truth of the gospel. Note that at this time i was going though a lot of crazy adjusting from school, work, moving, and i needed direction in my life. 3-4 days later i was doing our nightly reading with my little brother as we got ready for bed. it was in the scriptures of course, and i really cannot recall what scriptures they were... but i read them and i felt the spirit of God tell me that Jesus was and is the Christ that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true church of God on the earth today. i really got an answer from God that going on a mission would be a great idea, and that i can find the comfort that i need only if i ask Him for the help. I know that there is a prophet on the earth today because why else would God call prophets in the old days, not to call one today... He wouldn't, He has chosen one man to be the mouthpiece for him. These things are true and if we ask we will receive!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving others around me.. whenever i see someone in need that i can give them i think of how Jesus Christ would have acted to see those people in need. i have set a goal to serve at least one person each week

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Orie
As you pray and ask God in the name of Jesus Christ you will get answers from God... to me I was reading the scriptures when i learned that this was true.. if you read the Book of Mormon, go to Church and Pray looking for answers you will get your answer... there is nothing else to it... read, pray, and go to church... When you do Gods will you will know the Doctrine... its that simple. Show more Show less
