Hi I'm Forrest

I'm a friendly person. I've grown up all the U.S. and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy having time with friends and i like expressing myself, whether by singing, dancing, or anything artistic. I'm going to college after my mission in november. I have a passion for the gospel and i share its message as oftern as i can. I enjoy learning about how to be self sufficient and independent.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church, however, i wasn't fully converted until i was 16. I never read my scriptures on my own. I just didn't want to. I finally came to a time in my life where i couldn't find happiness. I was just going through a hard time and i just floating in life going through the motions. I had been reading the bible to see if it would help. When one morning, I heard a former seminary teacher state that Joseph Smith said "the Book of Mormon would bring a man closer to God than any other book", this spoke so profoundly to me that I knew i had to read that book. So, as soon as i opened its powerful pages and read the words of Nephi i became converted and my life changed forever. I found the happiness i was seeking so desperately and gained a lot of strength. I have just finished the book for the third time and I love it. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and that Joseph Smtith was a propthet of God. I know that this is His church and I'm grateful for the priesthood power and that God loves and trusts me enough to have that power and to go forth among His children and teach to them.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to do my best to be a good example. I've learned that people don't become converted by our message at first, they become converted by our examples. They see us in life and how we act and then they say there is someting there. Then years later, if they are ready, they meet the missionaries and become members. So, i preach to those to want to hear and be a good example to all the rest. I try and be a friend to everyone and just do my best everyday to be a good person. Because that is what God wants me to do.
