Hi I'm Brock

I am a Pharmacy technician, I like athletics, I like off-roading, I like woodwork, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love sports and athletics as well as exercise, I really like the sensation of jumping high, and moving fast. Four wheelers are awesome, and I love the outdoors. I love cabinet making and millwork, that is one of my passions. I went to USU and I have my associates degree, I am also a CPhT (certified pharmacy technician).

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I know its true, I've read the Book of Mormon and have prayed about it and there is no doubt in my mind that it is what God wants of me and what I want. Everything makes sense, and continues to more and more, my eyes have been opened and my perspective broadened. The church means so much to me I can't explain it. The blessings I have recieved and have been able to witness around me, whether they be in the church or in my family have me in amazement. I am glad the church is founded on Christ first but families as well. My family means everything to me and they always will.

How I live my faith

I have served in leadership positions as I have grown. When I turned 18 I taught children in sunday school. Throughout my teenage years for the church youth groups we tried to have a service night once a month. That was always a great experience although sometimes I did not want to go fix fences and do some landscaping and what not. But it was a good learning experience and it helped me form a greater appreciation for the people around me and a greater desire to work hard.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Brock
The Book of Mormon was written by prophets of God starting from one who came from Jerusalem to the american continent. Prophets were continuously called of God and they wrote his teachings as directed by the spirit of God. It is called the Book of Mormon because one of those prophets names was Mormon, he gathered all the writings of the previous prophets together and abridged them or put them all together as directed by God so they could be of the greatest benefit to us.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Brock
Nope, it is voluntary. Young men approaching 19 are encouraged to serve missions and we encourage as many members as possible to serve missions. However no one is ever forced we just love our Savior who taught us to love our neighbors and to proclaim his gospel to the ends of the earth. It is one of the ways we are blessed to be a part of God's work. We want the world to have peace of mind and happiness along with us. Show more Show less

Why do Mormons believe in the Bible?

Brock
The bible is the word of God, written by prophets in olden time. It testifies and teaches of the divinity of Jesus Christ. We believe from reading in the Book of Mormon that all good things come from God and all evil things come from the devil, because the devil is an enemy to God and fights against him continually. So anything that invites and points us to do good and to believe in God and to serve God is inspired of God. The devil would not fight against himself, it just doesn't make any sense. The Bible clearly points toward Christ who is our Savior and Redeemer, and the devils enemy. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about the nature of God?

Brock
we believe God has a body of flesh and bone, like man except he is a glorified immortal being. He created us in his own image. God is all encompassing, he has all knowledge, and a love that surpasses all understanding. If you ask me he just radiates with sheer awesomeness. Show more Show less

What is done with the tithing that Mormons pay?

Brock
Tithing is 100% beneficial to us. As we like to say it is our opportunity to assist in building the kingdom of God on the earth. The money goes to building churches temples and other buildings, funds the missionary program, and helps with other important functioins of the church. Everytime you drive by the temple you could say I've helped with that even when our measly ten percent might only buy a faucet or something, we still contributed and God blesses us with loads of blessings. In Malachi Christ says prove me now herewith if I will not open up the windows of heaven and pour you out a blessing that there shall not be room enough to recieve it. Paying tithing is an act of faith that has a serious return. Never has paying tithing interfered with my families physical well being, paying our tithing makes things happen that just don't make sense but it is incredible, we truly can't afford not to pay tithing.

Why don’t Mormons have paid clergy?

Brock
We are to help one another, the Bible states that no one is to teach for personal gain or Filthy lucre as stated in hebrews 4:5. the Gospel of Jesus Christ is exactly what it sounds like, his gospel, not ours, who are we to take credit for what is not hours and what has only blessed us. Who are we to withhold these blessings from others for monetary gain. God is able to do his own work we are simply allowed to be a part of the work and the miracles he has in store for all his beloved children. Selfless service is charity or the pure love of Christ, without it we are nothing. Show more Show less
