Hi I'm Elder Bowen

I'm a Mormon. Are you?

About Me

I enjoy sports, mostly football, basketball, and baseball. I am interested in just about anything. I enjoy talking to people, and learning from them. I love anything electronic. I am a fast learner when it comes to most things. I am so thankful to be where I am today, in a place where I can know of God's love for His children. I love my Family with all my heart. They mean the world to me.

Why I am a Mormon

I stopped going to church when I was 13. I moved in with my Mom, who is a non-denominational Christian and an amazing woman. From the ages of 13ish on I just did what teenagers did. I didn't really have a relationship with God, I always believed that there is a God, and that he wants me to be happy. I was, I was happy all throughout my young adult life. I worked at several places, most fun and exciting of which was Lake Powell, in Page AZ. I had a lot of experiences there, I met a lot of really awesome people, made friends and lots and lots of memories. After experiencing Lake Powell, I decided I wanted to go do something like it more, I received a job offer from Royal Carribean Cruise lines to work on a Cruise Ship that went around the Hawaiian Islands. Which I was so excited about. When I came home from lake powell, I started to doubt that job, and as months approached I felt a familiar feeling that I shouldn't go. It was later understood. A couple weeks after I was supposed to have flown to Hawaii, I was invited to go to church. My friend was speaking. The moment I walked into that building, I knew, without a shadow of a doubt, that I was supposed to be here for this. I felt an overwhelming power, like a bright light, it was so comfortable. After that, I started attending church, reading scriptures, and learning all I could, and Praying. I re-established my relationship with my Heavenly Father. I still to this day believe that He wants me to be happy. I know that He has guided me back to a happiness beyond my understanding. I have never felt so much Joy. I know this church is true, I know that The Book of Mormon is the word of God, I know that Joseph Smith was a Prophet called by God, and I know that this church is His restored church. I know these things, in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen

How I live my faith

I am currently serving in the Calgary Canada Mission. As a missionary I am serving others and letting them know of God's love for them, by sharing with them my Testimony of Jesus Christ. I am helping others and trying to love all of my brothers and sisters.
