Hi I'm Russell

I was born into the church, I'm also a convert.

About Me

Recently married, soon to be sealed to my beautiful wife Alison in the Hawaii temple. I spend most of my time caring for people with disabilities, and find it very rewarding. I enjoy bicycling and tennis and activities with family.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe the Book of Mormon is a true record of the religious history in the Americas and that it was translated by the prophet Joseph Smith. What I love most about the Mormon church (it's really the Lords church) is that the plan of salvation, the plan of happiness, extends into the eternities with families being together and progression never stops! Following the gospel has brought me happiness and peace in this life and promises a fullness of joy in the life to come!

How I live my faith

I attend church and enjoy worship in the temple when I can. I enjoy visiting families and sharing the gospel with them. I have served in the Sunday School program and before I was married I served in Single Adults on the ward and stake level. The testimony I share most often is through actions more than words. I love my Savior and Heavenly Father

Is it true that Jesus appeared in North America after his crucifixion and resurrection according to the Book of Mormon?

One of the greatest stories in the book of Mormon is Christ's appearance in the Americas. It had been foretold by prophets on this continent and looked forward to by those who believed. Jesus taught His gospel and organized His church as he did in his ministry. He told the people that they were the "other sheep" that he spoke of in the book of John in the New Testament.
