Hi I'm John

I grew up in Port Orchard and Puyallup, Washington. I have a family of 8. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My hobbies are computers, R/C cars, models, dioramas,and dreaming. I'm a father. I was in the Army, but now work in a warehouse. I plan to go to college after my children get older.

Why I am a Mormon

I ran away from home (Washington to Ohio) when I was 16. After about a month, my parents found me through the local police on a Friday. I was told that I would be escorted to the airport the next morning. I then Prayed to God and asked to end me because I was to afraid to face my parents again. Later the evening I was at a baseball game with the family that was housing me. I quick thunder/lighting storm appeared. The game was called and everyone ran for cover. The son of the family forgot his mit on the pitcher’s mound, so I ran to get it. As I bent down to pick up the mit, my mind went clear (no sounds) and a loud voice said: "Don't test me!" Then the sounds came back, and I ran for the car. Once I got in everyone looked at me very strange. I asked what was wrong. They told me that when I bent down to get the mit lighting stroke right behind me. I went back home and started seeking more about God. Everywhere I went I felt something was missing. Then I met my soon to be wife. She was taking the missionary lessons. I walked out several times, but then I had a dream that told me to sit and listen. The next time I listened and quickly felt that I had found the missing parts. It took me about a year to decide to get baptized. Since then I've experienced and witnessed many miracles (blessings.)

How I live my faith

I currently hometeach several families with my son. On Sundays I help in the nursey (18 month - 3 year old children.)

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is a great story book with wars, faith, love,and hope. A missing part of the Christain faith. It is a must read book. Beats the New York best sellers.Once you've read it you will feel that something has changed in you. Then Pray to God, and he will confirm it to you. Show more Show less
