Hi I'm John

I grew up in Sandy Utah and am currently a full time missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I sure love to talk to people and get to know who they are and relate with them. I love to help others. I am outgoing and love to do things that test my talents and push me to become a stronger person. I love my family. I like to play almost any sport. I love hunting and fishing, also boating in the summers. I enjoy seeking for ways that I can come closer to my Father in Heaven. I'm 20 years old and my life is ahead of me and there are many opportunities to become anything I can be. I love driving my truck and mowing the lawn. I work hard and learn as I go. Life is for progression.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because it all makes sense, Ive read The Book of Mormon and I have never felt closer to God at any other time than when I read that book. I understand where I fit in Gods plan. I understand what I must do to return to live with Him again. I know what my purpose for being on this earth is. I understand and know where I came from. And most of all I have never felt so much joy and happiness in my life. I know who I am. There is no doubt about that.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following the example of Jesus Christ to the best of my ability, at all times. I build up others and seek to use the talents God has blessed me with to bless the lives of others. I pray for others and study the scriptures and look for ways that the scriptures can help them in there lives. I always seek to improve myself in the Gospel. I set worthy goals and strive to achieve them. I trust in the Lord and know that He can use me to bless those He wants to bless. I repent daily so that I can be worthy for the Holy Ghost to guide me in the calling that I have as a missionary.

How is the Book of Mormon different from the Bible? How did Joseph Smith obtain the “golden plates” or Book of Mormon?

John
The only difference about The Book of Mormon is that it was written on the American continent. It teaches the same Gospel that Jesus Christ taught to His apostles and bears testimony of Him and invites all to come unto Him and be saved. The Bible and The Book of Mormon go hand and hand. An Angel (Moroni) sent from the presence of God appeared to Joseph Smith and showed him where the plates were and taught him what he was to do with the gold plates when he was prepared to take them and begin translating them.
