Hi I'm Patrick

I'm a Mormon and I grew up in New Jersey

About Me

I am a Father of 4, enjoy spending as much time as I can with our Grandchildren, love to walk hike and bike ride, travel , and cannot get enough of the beauty God created for us all to admire.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of this church since age 20. During a summer working in Rexburg, Idaho I admired the clean lifestyle of students at a College operated by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. At the time I wanted to associate with them by attending dances( no alcohol, not illegal drugs) and fun wholesome entertainment. I was invited to Family Home Evening on Monday night with about ten others to talk about God's teachings, play games and have desserts or sometimes a full meal) Yum!) I made friends quickly and had an enjoyable time with them. I met with the missionaries along with new found friends who helped me understand the Purpose of Life and how we can return to live with Heavenly Father again, I say again as I also found out about where I came from before I was born, a question which I had asked my parents and at a Religious school I attended during grade school .I was so happy to finally know about where I existed before I was born that I had to learn more . After 3 months of Study and learning on my own I prayerfully decided to be a member of the Church Of Jesus Christ of LDS, the BEST decision I have ever made.

How I live my faith

We can all serve God by serving and helping others by visiting the ill, helping someone move, help in the community with service projects like painting, weeding, cleaning up parks. I have done this as groups of volunteers are organised by local leaders( including myself). It is satisfying to know I have made a difference in helping others and can feel happy to know I can help others like God wants me to do.

Are Mormons Christians?

Patrick
Yes no doubt about it. The name on all our Church Buildings says The CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER DAY SAINTS. We are Christians- we teach of Jesus Christ, he is our leader our Savior, the only Perfect one to live on the earth. He indeed is the center of my belief. Show more Show less
