Hi I'm Rollo

I'm a student, musician, agnostic, history lover, and yes I'm also a Mormon...

About Me

I study whatever I can get my hands on. I LOVE to learn. The world is at our fingertips between books and the internet, and we are blessed to have access to learn and grow from vast pools of knowledge. I have traveled the world, craving a deep understanding of the world's cultures--I love seeing how other people, throughout time, have strived to find and define God. I love being a Mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

Life is just too hard, to go through it alone. I really believe that God answers prayers, because he answered mine. I knew that this was what would make me truly happy. The kind of happiness that you can't find anywhere else... The kind that people stay up, at nights, wishing they had. And I knew, then, that I found it. My parents taught me what to do when I was young, and it took a desprate prayer to make me reallize that it was true. It's helped me, and millions of others, through too many things for me to start doubting it, now.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by becoming a "doer of the word, and not [a hearer], only." Though I often stumble, I strive to live many of the universal truths in the LDS (Mormon) Church by being honest, selfless, grateful, and hard working. I look for ways to improve through learning, thoughtfulness, and application--always trying to be a better me :)

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

It takes time, but you have to plant the idea in your heart (desire to know), nurture the soil (study), and water the seed (act on what you learn), and seeing results! A testimony, as simply as I can put it, is seeing results from living truth. To see that there are good results. And, not unlike a great youtube video, you can't help but share it! A testimony is acknowledging the outcome or result of something, like fruit from a tree. Show more Show less
