Hi I'm Tony

I am from the hot sandy Arizona desert. I am a college student and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a student at college. I love having fun and hanging out with people. I really enjoy music. I play the Saxophone and Clarinet. I also enjoy being on the swim team. I love life in general. I was able to go to Iceland and really learn about the culture there.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it has only helped me. I was born into the church but I still needed to find out for myself. I always had douts and didn't know if this was for me. MY parents always said this is the true church, but I didn't know. I had the chance to look at other churches and attend them. While I did this I also contiuned to attend The Church ofJesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I also contintued to do what I was taught as a kid. When I went to other churches they were good. They taught good things but I felt like I was missing something in my heart. I felt like I had a huge hole there. Whenever I went to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints that whole was filled and I felt a lot more heppier. It is hard to explain but it was a really really GREAT feeling I had. I also prayed to God and asked him what church is true. There are so many why? Shouldn't there just be one that you have created for all of us on earth? That is what I was thinking, but he answered me. My heart was completely filled and I found answers to my questions when I went to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I have purpose now in this life. I can get through trials. I know why I am here and where I am going. I know that this is the true church of God. It is for everyone. I know Jesus Christ is really my Saviour. I know now with all my heart that there is more to life than just sleeping and eating! You can know to!!! It takes and sincere heart and sincere prayer and diligent searching of the truth!!! He can answer you. That is why I am a Mormon!!!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church every Sunday. I try everyday to repent and just to do my best. I try my best to serve in the church. I had a chance to serve a 2 year mission in Iceland to help others which was amazing!! I currently am helping the church out with Family History. We strongly believe in family history. I jsut try to live by the commandments that God has given us for our day!!!

What is Mormonism? OR What do Mormons believe?

Tony
Mormonism is the gospel of Jesus Christ which he established! We believe that when Jesus Christ was on earth at first he established his church perfectly. He called 12 Apostles to help him lead the church. Unfortunitely, when Jesus Christ was crucified and the Apostles were killed the teachings that Jesus Christ taught and his Apostles were changed. Man started believe it what he wanted to believe in. So, Mormons believe that in 1820 there was a young boy named Joseph Smith who was searching for truth. He noticed that there were many churches and he was wondering why there wasn't just one church for everyone. So, He decided to read in the bible and ask God which church is true. Jesus Christ and God appeared to Joseph Smith and called him to be a prophet to restore, bring back, the church that was once on the earth when Christ was on the earth. So day we have the fulness of the gospel of Jesus Christ to help us and lead us to do that which is right! Show more Show less
