Hi I'm Joel

I from California. I like to have fun. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the third of 4 kids. I was Born and raised in Southern California. I enjoy camping and being out doors and playing sports. I am a Star Wars nerd. I played football in high school, and always have a lot of fun.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a LDS family. I was taught the gosple from a yong age. As I grew up I had to learn if I wanted to be a mormon. I could do it because thats what my parents wanted, or if thats how I wanted to live. I had to do the same thing that missionaries ask every one to do. I had to Read the Book of Mormon, and think about it, and get down on my knees and pray and ask God if the book of Mormon is true. I felt the Holy Ghost testify to me that the Book of Mormon was true. Now because of the testimony I have of the Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day Sants, I love being a mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in many ways. Right now I'm serving as a Sunday School Teacher, in my young single adult ward. I enjoy it, it really stretches me, and gets me out of my comfort zone. I served a mission for the Church in the Iowa Des Moines mission, even though I have finished serving my mission, I still look for opportunities to share what has blessed my life and what I know to be true. I also try every day to be Christ like, because that is why we go to church, to learn to be like our Savior.

Why is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints called Mormons or Mormonism?

Joel
The term mormon is a nick name for the church that came about because of the Book of Mormon. The Book of Mormon is another Testiment of Jesus Christ. It is aditional scripture that goes and works hand in hand with the Bibble. The Official name of the Church is the Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day saints, and we some times shorten the Official tittle of the Church to just Latter-day Sanits or just LDS, becaus we are the sanits that fallow Jesus Christ in these Last days.
