Hi I'm patrick

I am currently serving in the Great California Mission. I come from a big family who love the Lord.

About Me

My name is Patrick and I am a Mormon. I played basketball at a younger age and ran track all throughout my years of schooling. I love to make others happy and have a good time. I like to sing(not good at it) but I like to do it anyway. I am currently serving a mission in Long Beach, California. The choice to come out and serve is the best decision that I have ever made. God truly does Love each and every one of His children.

Why I am a Mormon

I was adopted at the age of 3 1/2 by an LDS faith and we believe that everyone has their own Moral Agency. So, they they never "forced" me to come to church but I went(exercising that Moral Agency mentioned previously) and never ever regretted it. As I grew up in the church, I saw how the lord worked in my life and to this day I still do. This gospel brings a certain happiness and knowledge to my life. I know what my purpose is, and I know what I need to do to get back to my Father in Heaven. As I have read the book of Mormon I continue to receive that convincing witness by the Power of The Holy Ghost that what I read is true. It is important to know that when we pray to God(who is the very source of all truth) to know if the Book of Mormon is true that he will not reveal anything to us(his children) that is untrue. That being said, I again suggest that you do this, and I promise that you will receive an answer.

How I live my faith

I keep the Sabbath Day Holy and go to church, I read the Holy Scriptures that our Father in Heaven has so loving provided for us his children. I seek to grow closer to God each day and to live what I believe. Namely, practicing what I preach. I surround myself with those that have similar standards as me. That being said I am not judge mental or close-minded. I love to give service to others and help in every way that I can. "And behold, I tell you these things that ye may learn wisdom; that ye may learn that when ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are only in the service of your GOD". I love my faith and am so thankful to be able to say the three words "I'm a Mormon".

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon really is what it states it is. Another witness that Christ lives. It is also the key to one coming to know that the Message of the Restoration is true. If the Book is true then God really did reach out and call a Prophet, namely Joseph Smith. At the end there is this promise or rather challenge given to the reader. I know it myself to be true that once you read this book cover to cover that you will find it to be true. There is a promise made in Moroni 10:4 that if one will read it all the way through and sincerely pray they will know it to be true. Show more Show less
