Hi I'm John

I'm an Internet Marketer. I'm an Australian. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a husband and father of three. I've done a few different jobs, from kitchenhand to computer technician but now work from home as an Internet marketer.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Greek Orthodox faith and never considered joining a different church. One day, though, I was pouring out my heart to God, asking Him to show me the path he wanted me to take with my life. It was shortly after that humble, sincere prayer that I met missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. They taught me about the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ and I received a witness from God that what they shared was true. Shortly after I became a Mormon. That was 16 years ago. Over the years I've had the opportunity to learn more about the Church and to serve in its lay ministry. During that time, as I've come to learn even more about the Church and live its teachings, I've changed into a better, happier person. I've been able to lead the life that God wanted me to lead and have drawn closer to Him. God does answer our prayers.

How I live my faith

The way I live my faith first starts with me. Daily prayer and scripture study is as important as daily meals. Living the golden rule is a must; do unto others as you would have them do unto you. What we do as a family is an expression of our faith. We pray together each day and study the scriptures together. We attend church together and encourage each other to follow Jesus Christ. Serving in the Church is an important part of how I live my faith. Today I serve as a priesthood leader, making sure that all members of our church are taken care of temporally and spiritually. We watch over each other, offering help, support and expressing our love for God and one another. I also live my faith as a member of my community. Being active in local issues is a way that I can show my love for my neighbour and help make the world a better place.
