Hi I'm Sean Mounts

I joined the church when I was 18 in 2008 my freshman year of college.

About Me

I am in college studying electrical engineering. I just started a family business. I recently got married in June 2011. I am the first person in my family to join the church. I am Korean and Kentuckian.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that great blessings will come my way by living the gospel and sharing it with those I come in contact with. Everyone wants to find happiness, peace, understanding, and support and I have found all of these things through the church. It is the foundation of the family I will soon be creating, and it is the best thing that has ever happened to me and my family.

How I live my faith

I regularly attend church every Sunday as well as church activities on Fridays. I am a ward missionary and I help people in my area discover our church and see how it can add value to their lives. I have been to the temple a total of 4 times now. Spokane once, and Seattle 3 times. I wish to go on a trip to discover the places of the gospel as well as attending other temples around the globe. My wife and I hope to go on a mission later in life to Korea and develop a large family tree by discovering my ancestry there.

What is the difference between attending church and the temple?

Sean Mounts
Our churches are dedicated public places of worship where Mormons and visitors can meet to pray, study scripture, partake of the sacrament, and continue to learn their responsibilities as children of God. The temple is literally, as it has been throughout history, the "House of the Lord" see 1 Kings 61, 37. The primary purpose of the temple is to provide a dedicated place where sacred ordinances needed for eternal life can be preformed. Because of its sacred nature, attendance in the temple is limited to Mormons who obey God's commandments and therefore are worthy to enter. Show more Show less
