Hi I'm Connor

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in Utah Valley and have been a Mormon my entire life.

About Me

Hey all, my name is Connor, I loved to play baseball and basketball during high school. I also played some tennis and some flag football. Just some fun little sports. I loved to hang out with my friends and watch movies or play some video games. I love reading books too. I'm not really sure what to say on this, I want to be able to say something that will help you to connect with me. I am now in college. I do have a family and they are super awesome. I love them a lot. And that is just a very simple background on me.

Why I am a Mormon

Why I'm a Mormon. I've grown up in the church. I was baptized when I was 8 years old and haven't really had any huge issue with it. When I was 16 I started to question for myself if this Church really was the true church or not. I read the Book of Mormon once and prayed, but I must not have been willing to accept the will of God because I don't remember recieving an answer. But I didn't give up. I kept going to church and doing all the things I was "Supposed" to do. But I didn't know what I felt. I read the Book of Mormon again and I prayed with a real desire. I didn't have a huge ah hah moment. More of a "Connor, you've always known this church was true. Just continue to live it." That was all I needed to here. I know this church is true. I know that the Book of Mormon is true. Everyone says to read Mor 10:3-5 But that wasn't the verse that helped me to know. There are two of them now. 2 Ne 33: 10-11 and Mor 10: 26-27. Please read and pray, I know that the Gospel is the greatest news that we can ever hear and that it never gets old. It will bring so much joy into your lives. I love Christ. And I say this in His name, Jesus Christ. Amen.

How I live my faith

One of the hardest things that I have had to do in my life was to be an example of believers of the same faith. Growing up with in a community where almost everyone has the same values makes it a little different to live what you believe and to stand out while doing it. A lot of people I know chose to stand out and rebel. That wasn't the path I wanted to follow, I wanted to stand out and let everyone know that I am a disciple of Jesus Christ and that I am here to do His will. I believe living the Gospel of Jesus Christ is a lot more than just following the commandments. I believe that the true desires behind your obedience makes all the difference. I live my faith by willing following my savior and happily showing my love towards Him. I want people to know at all times that I love Jesus Christ and that I will do all in my power to proclaim His gospel, the great news of salvation.

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is another Testament of Jesus Christ and through it we can know the truth of all things, it is evidence of God's love for all of His children and it is the way that we learn which church God really supports. Because there is only one. Show more Show less
