Hi I'm Hans

I am Married to my Wife Christine. I am a student, I am Learning a growing everyday, I am a Mormon.

About Me

hi :) let me tell you some of my hobby's when i was growing up I always wanted to get a motorcycle and when i was 12 i got my first bike, a small little Honda, it was broken and i got it for free. I found out what it tuck to fix the bike and I set a goal and got it running, my mom was really supprised that i had got the bike running. she loved to see me ride it though i'm sure she was nerves but she was okay with it.. i swam all 4 years in high school and was a team caption, my last year swimming i moved and was a swimmer for another high school i had a lot of fun still it was really hard to move I had plans and I had to give them up[. for a while I got depressed. and I was in a a bad space I had, what felt like, no friends! after a few months i settled in and started to work and that help me so much. and a great church leader who loved me and wanted me to be happy. he helped me to see, how to brush it off. and rely on Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

well people ask me why I do the things I do. I usually tell them that's just who I am. but its so much more then that. I was born and raised part of the church, my mom and dad were loving and wanted me to be happy and they taught me to love and serve and to be kind to every one no matter their back ground, I am so glad they did. but that's not the reason why I'm a Mormon. I had to decide if I wanted to continue doing the things I was taught. I hit a few road bumps. and started down a path to misery. at that time I had no desire to go to church or to do "what "I was sop-post to do" then life just stopped and I fell back on what I was taught, pray to know truth read from the scriptures and the "word" go back to church. so I did and I was able to feel like I was driving on smooth ground again. no other source but my God has given that to me. and that is why I'm a Mormon. I feel peace and joy by doing those 3 small things pray read and going to church. I Know that my Father in heaven loves me and wants what is best for me, I can trust him.

How I live my faith

the way I live my faith is by serving and saying hi to every one I can. by choosing to be happy and seeing the good in any situation even when I want to see the bad. I try to do my best to learn and grow. I work hard and I play hard. in my youth I was able to pass the sacrament and when i was older I was able to prepare it and then I was able to bless it. that would have to be the coolest thing ever, blessing the bread and water that represents Jesus Christs' Atonement, and watching over the ward. my extended family. I do my best and try to get better and that's the way I live my faith.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Hans
NO. its definintly not a requirement. Its like taking a photo. if you take the photo you can print it and share it and learn from it. a mission is a great oppertunity to get to know the lord, and see how he works and how we can play a part in his purpose. but if you dont take that photo then you cant share the photo, rember it, or use it. you cant use what you dont have. thats how I look at it. Another way to look at it, is putting fethers in a cap. the cap is life, feathers are the things we do every day. going on a mission is the way we put "that" feather in the cap. and then we can use it, and refrence to it and learn from it.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Hans
yes! I Believe and hope God Wants us all to be happy and to learn. so as we learn we have the Chance to be sealed in a holy temple of God to our families. with the promise that if we as a couple stay true and faithful, are willing to Grow together in unity, happiness and peace; then we will continue to grow in unity happiness and peace, with the blessing and promise that when we die we have a promise from God and the Holy spirit that we will live together again!
