Hi I'm Elder Valentine

I grew up in Kaysville, Utah. I love the outdoors and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love the outdoors; hiking, camping, fishing, boating, skiing... etc. I am a sophomore in college. I love learning how the world works, science and history classes really interest me.

Why I am a Mormon

The more i learn about the world and how it works, the more i know that God lives. because i know that God lives i have always been able to feel a certain love when i pray to him. I often pray for guidance and direction in my life, consequently I have prayed to know if the the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is God's church. I know through the Holy Spirit and experience that this church contains the fullness of Jesus Christ's gospel. I love everything about being mormon. The mormon church is the only place i can find answers to the questions of the soul! the restored gospel of Jesus Christ is so relevant to everyone. I cant even begin to describe how different my life would be without the truth i have been lucky enough to have. There are literally countless blessings from God in my life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to follow Jesus Christ's example and by spreading the good word. currently i am preaching the gospel full time

Why was a Restoration of the Gospel needed? Haven’t we always had the Bible?

Elder Valentine
Yes, and the Bible is the word of God. but after Jesus Christs ascension into heaven, the people rejected his apostles who were supposed to carry on his work under his direction and authority. without the apostles and prophets, the people had to rely on themselves for their own interpretaion of the Bible rather than what Christ had origanally intended. it was like going to chemistry class with the textbook but without the teacher. everyone is going to have their own oppinion on what is important and what isn't. and eventually you have people changing Christs original organization in order to make it fit their lifestyle. many plain and simple truths about the gospel were lost, and the original organization of the church was broken. this is why we need living prophets and apostles. God showed his love for us by restoring the gospel again through a living prophet!! Show more Show less
