Hi I'm Guy

I grew up in Mesa arizona and was born into the mormon church.

About Me

I am a husband and father to a beautiful wife and four kids. I went to college after serving a mission in Australia and getting married shortly thereafter. I got a degree in business administration. I am a general contractor and also own a restoration company. I love to play sports, go hunting, hit the beach, and get outdoors for such things as camping, hiking, mtn. Biking, the dunes, and the list goes on!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints is gods true church on the earth today. Any religion that brings people closer to god is great, but I know that their is only one god and he is only going to have one church. The church is set up the same way Jesus Christ set it up long ago with a prophet and twelve apostles who help us know gods will in our day and age. Unfortunatly, wicked people killed all the prophets and apostles shortly after Jesus Christ set it up so the fulness of gods gospel was taken from the earth. After going through the dark ages without gods true church; god started to prepare the people for the fullness of his gospel once again. The reformation started with Martin Luther who was a catholic priest in Germany who posted 95 questions with the church that contradicted what the bible taught. The sale of indulgences was his main argument. At this time people were not allowed to read the scriptures only the priests.Martin Luther broke away and started his own church called the lutheran church. Following this event many people started chuches of their own. Shortly thereafter king James compiled scriptures known as the king James bible, which he made available for all people to read. In 1805 a man named Joseph smith was born and his parents belonged to different religions so he didn't know which church to join. One day he read in the bible James 3:5 that states if you lack wisdom ask god. So Joseph smith prayed to god which church to join,he was visited by god the father and Jesus christ and was told not to join any of them be cause they were churches of men. Joseph smith was called as a prophet of god to restore his true church in it's entirety back to the earth. I know the church is true because I also prayed to god to know the truth just like it says in James 3:5 and my prayers were answered through the holy spirit testifying to me that this is gods true church in it's fullness.

How I live my faith

I am definetly not perfect but i try to live a christlike life. I was rasied by good parents who taught me the importance of good moral values and serving those around me or in the community. I currently work with the youth in church in the Sunday school presidentcy. I have noticed in my life that when i forget about myself and serve others i always feel better and happier!
