Hi I'm Beau Enslow.

I love beef bologne and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a male, not female. I am currently serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Hoosier land (Indiana). Serving a mission has been the greatest blessing of my life. Like I said I love beef bologne. It cant be chicken bologne or pork bologne it has to be beef. I grew up in Sandy, Ut. My whole life has been centered on football since I was a little kid. It was my passion growing up. Golf, basketball, wakeboarding, snowboarding and eating are activitys that rub me the right way. I have 6 brothers and 0 sisters. My brothers are awesome. I dont have biological sisters but I have awesome sister in laws. I love my nieces and nephews. We are all really close. My parents are the best. Their nicknames are the A-Bombers(A-stands for awesome) because whenever your around them they drop bombs of awesomeness on you.

Why I am a Mormon

Im a Mormon because it makes me happy. The only real lasting happiness I have found in this life has come through living this gospel. I grew up in the church but I consider my self a convert. I fell away from the church in my youth. It was not until I was 23 yrs. old when I came back to the church. I was searching for happiness in all the wrong places. That search for happiness led me into addictions that were very hard to deal with. It started very small but it got to the point where It was destroying my life. During that time I was ruining family relationships because all I cared about was myself. My mindset was so set on how I could find happiness for that day that I was hurting those around me. I remember one particular night feeling so alone and hopeless. I had tried to overcome this many times and was unsuccessful. I felt that night that I could not go on any longer until something changed. As a last resort I turned to my family for help. I turned to my mother and my brother for help. I was told to read the Book of Mormon for an hour a day everyday. I was hesitant at first, I had heard that answer before but I decided to really give a shot. So, thats what I did. I would kneel down and plead for help, then I would read for an hour. There is a scripture that describes the feelings that I got after that hour was up, "[I was] in the midst of darkness; nevertheless [my] soul was illuminated by the light of the everlasting word...[my] soul did expand, and [I] did sing redeeming love."(Alma 5:7-9) The feeling that I got after reading was so fulfilling. What I was feeling was the Spirit. God sends his spirit to teach us truth. As I continued to read the Book of Mormon I learned more and more about Jesus Christ. I began to ask for help and forgiveness from Jesus Christ. Over the next weeks and months I truly came to know that Jesus Christ is my Savior. There would have been no way out of my situation if it was not for Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I try my best to do what God want me to do. I pray and read my scriptures everyday. I love to read the Book of Mormon. It brings the spirit into my life. I try to share my faith with others so that they can come to feel true, lasting peace and long term happiness.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Beau Enslow.
No. We dont worship prophets. He was a prophet of God. We worship God our Father and His Son the Lord Jesus Christ. Belief in a prophet does not take away from our faith God. Someone who has a strong belief in ancient prophets such as Moses would understand that their belief in Moses as a prophet of God would not take away from or diminish their faith in God. So it is with our belief in Joseph Smith. Prophets are honored and reveared for the way they lead and guide Gods children. We believe in and love ancient and modern prophets. But we worship God our Father and His Son Jesus Christ. Show more Show less

Do Mormons practice polygamy?

Beau Enslow.
Nope. We do not. We obey God's commandments. At this time we are commanded by God to have one wife. In the past God has commanded his children to practice plural marriage. The bible shows a pattern of this command (Abraham, Isaac, Moses.) Today God instruct's us through living prophets that one wife is the way to go. We follow that counsel. Show more Show less
