Hi I'm Oscar

I grew up in Oklahoma and in Arizona. Cooking is my passion. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Cooking is my passion. I am not very good at it, but I enjoy cooking immensely. I have recently enrolled in a culinary school. I am the elderst of three brothers. Spending time with those who make me want to become a better person is one of my favorite past times. This usually includes spending time with my friends. I also enjoy plaing video games and reading fiction books. I enjoyed giving two years of my life to the Lord to serve a mission in the Colorado Colorado Springs Mission. They were the best/hardest two years of my life, but I learned to love people that I didn't even know.

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized when I was nine years old. My mom was a baptized when she was ten but then fell away from the church when she was about 18. My family did not have any contact with the church with for 18 years. She then serched out the chruch and we have been going ever since. I owe who I am and my feeling about the church all to my mom. I could only relie on the testimony for so long. When I was about sixteen I decided that I could no longer depend on my mother's tesimony any longer. I had to take Moroni promise (Book of Mormon, Moroni 10:3-5) for myself. I prayed to my Heavenly Father for the answer that I needed to experince for my self. The answer that I got was one that this really was His true and only chruch.

How I live my faith

I live my faith everyday by trying to do the things that Jesus would have me do. I help out my local ward by setting up the sacrament and making sure it is ready when church begins. This is a very important responsibly as the sacrament is a very important part of our church services. My friends are a big help when I am trying to live the gospel. They are a great insperation to me and help me try to be a better person and son of God.

What is the Word of Wisdom that Mormons talk about?

The Word of Wisdom is a revalation given to us by our Heavenly Father through Joseph Smith. It is a commandment that helps us keep our body clean and in good condition. It is to abstain from things that would make our body addicted to certain things. The items that we abstain from are tabacco products, alcohol, coffe, tea, and illegal drugs which inludes abusing drugs that are not illegal. This commandment has helped me to stay away from these things. Thanks to the teachings of the Church, I have no desire to even try out these types of things. I feel my body is in better condition now, then if I had started consuming these items. Show more Show less
