Hi I'm Hoss

I grew up in California, served a mission in Spain and went to BYU. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Northern California and stayed there till I went to BYU. I currently live in Arizona with my wife and kids. I enjoy working with and building things with wood. I have built entertainment centers, shelves and desks. I also enjoy participating in sports for recreation, reading, and spending time with my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church, but got my own testimony when I was a teenager. Since that time, I have never looked back. I have had several experiences that have shown me that Heavenly Father loves us. Things may sometimes look bleak, but I know that Heavenly Father is in control.

How I live my faith

I participate in my ward by working with the young men. We teach them the value of the priesthood they hold and how to serve others. We also look for opportunities to serve others in the community and volunteer for community service events. I also take part in all our ward activities and work hard at what is asked of me.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon, like the Bible, is the writings of prophets of God who were called to preach to the people. The prophets of the Bible taught in Jerusalem and the prophets of the Book of Mormon taught the people of the ancient Americas. Heavenly Father's plan is for all mankind. He teaches his truth to everybody. We are blessed to have another record of His dealings with his children, that can testify of his Son, Jesus Christ. The Book of Mormon is named after Mormon, one of the last prophets of the Book of Mormon. He compiled the writings of the American prophets into one volume. Show more Show less
