Hi I'm John Ballard

I'm a Mormon living in Arizona. I was raised in Southern California and served an LDS mission in Upstate New York.

About Me

My family and I have lived in the American Southwest all of our lives. We enjoy all types of outdoor activities from the beach to the desert. I work in the utility business.

Why I am a Mormon

Life's experiences teach many lessons. Some of those lessons are about faith and trust in a loving Heavenly Father and His son, Jesus Christ. I have come to know - through experience - that God does live, and that He has a plan designed for the eternal happiness of me and my family. That plan of happiness is taught through the scriptures and by living prophets of God. These sacred truths are found in their fullness in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

How I live my faith

I try to live my life as a witness of Jesus Christ in the home, at work, and in my Church associations. Though far from being the ideal example, seeking to follow the teachings of Christ helps me to be a better man. I have learned that obedience in keeping covenants with God, in both large and small matters, brings blessings and peace into my life.
