Hi I'm Wyatt

I am an ASU graduate. I am currently serving in the California Roseville Mission, and . . . I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have done my far share of traveling. I love my family, and am grateful for the country that I live in. I was raised in the Church, but like any active member, I needed to gain a testimony of these principles for myself. I have learned through faith and my own experience that this Gospel and Church are true. The eternal truths taught in my faith come from Jesus Christ. When I have applied these teachings more fully, the result has been peace and reassurance for me.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe the God is our Heavenly Father. He is the actual father of our spirits, just as our earthly dads are the fathers of our mortal bodies. Just like any other offspring, a puppy grows into a dog and a seed grows into a tree. We can grow into what our Heavenly Father is now. Like any loving parent, He wants us to have everything He has. To help us along the way, He has spoken to ancient prophets like: Moses, Noah, and Abraham. He sent His son, Jesus Christ, to establish His church. Jesus Christ is our beloved brother. He suffered the sins and pains of the world. He has asked us to follow his Gospel. If we do, our sins will be forgiven and we won't have to suffer the pains of sin as He did. Christ's church was removed from the earth after his death. It was restored by Joseph Smith Jr. in 1830. Joseph also received the Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ. We are continued to be blessed by the Lord's inspiration through his modern-day prophets. Today, we are blessed to hear from President Thomas S. Monson, who is the Lord's mouthpiece to the planet. I am grateful for Jesus Christ, the Bible, the Book of Mormon, a living prophet and a loving Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I do my best to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ, seek forgiveness for my short-comings, and strive to do better. I have found great peace as I have made it a daily habit to read the Book of Mormon. I would encourage everyone else to do the same.

Are Mormons Christians?

Absolutely! As a full-time missionary for this church, everything I teach is centered in Jesus Christ. My whole purpose is to invite people to have faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement. My companion and I share the Book of Mormon with many people. The sole point of the Book of Mormon is to testify that Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer, and through His gospel, we can have everlasting life. I cannot think of a better scripture to answer this question than this one. It is in 2 Nephi 25:26 (page 100 in the Book of Mormon); it reads, "And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins." I know for myself. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (a Mormon), and I am a disciple of Jesus Christ (a Christian). Mormons are Christians! Show more Show less
