Hi I'm Sheldon

I grew up on a farm in South eastern Idaho and love Motorbiking and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Sheldon and I love anything that has a motor attached to it from snowmobiles to dirt bikes. I grew up on a farm and love being in a small farming community. It has taught me the value of hard work and patience. I served a mission and I consider that the turning point in my life. It has brought me to a much greater knowledge of my Savior Jesus Christ and his infinite love for everyone. I plan on going to college as soon as I can to hopefully study Diesel Mechanics. I love camping and being in the outdoors and Im a Mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in this church but I still believe that everyone has to have their own conversion. I feel that my conversion to the Mormon church didnt happen all at once but came over time as I learned more about it. I served a mission for the church and that is when I feel that I was truly converted to the gospel of Jesus Christ. It came overtime as I talk about it everyday to different people. The more that I studied the teachings of the church, the more I came to a knowledge of the truth of its teachings. I have watched many people convert to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and saw the great change and happiness that it has brought to everyone one of them, that alone will always give me motivation to follow every theaching of the church. The church and its teachings will always bring happiness if you follow them. God wants us to be happy and this is the best wy for us to be.

How I live my faith

I currently am living my faith by serving a 2 year mission. We leave everything behind to teach the gospel of Jesus Christ to everyone that will heed our message. It is a great experience to see people change their lives for the better by living the teachings that Jesus Christ taught when he was on the earth. I also have helped with the youth in diffent activities and in personal spiritual growth. The church gives eveyone that has a desire to help other people a chance to do so. I will continue to serve the church and comminunity whenever I get an oppurtunity to. Jesus Christ is the greatest example of service to others and he truly lives his faith. My desire is to try my hardest to live my life as Jesus Christ lived his.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

The book of Mormon was written by many different prophets just as was the Bible. These prophets are called of God to preach his gospel to the people in the area they are in. They taught the people about the Doctrines of Christ and what happenes when you follow his teachings and what happens when you dont. Many people think that the book of Mormon was written soley by the prophet Mormon. He was a prophet but he just compiled the book for easier reading. It is similar to the 10 commandments. They arent Moses commandments but they are Gods, even though some people refer to them as Moses Commandments. It isnt Mormons book but Gods, and it is for our benifit in the modern days. Many believe that Joseph Smith wrote the Book of Mormon as well. He was a prophet that translated it from its ancient language to english so we can all benefit from it. It was translated by the gift and power of God. Jospeh Smith did not write the Book of Mormon, however he was the prophet called of God to translate the ancient record. Show more Show less
