Hi I'm John

Oakland A's fan. Father of 3 amazing kids. Loves Astronomy. Swim dad. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love spending time with my family going on vacations, having Family Home Evenings and eating dinner with them talking about what's going on in our lives, may it be from work, school and church. I am a father of 3 wonderful and amazing kids. I love to watch my kids play their beloved sports and see them have fun. Me and my wife love seeing their growth as they live the Gospel of Jesus Christ, our Savior.

Why I am a Mormon

I gain my personal testimony while I was serving as a missionary. Me and my companion prayed and asked Heavenly Father about the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon and about Joseph Smith. We had a personal revelation through the Holy Ghost that the Book of Mormon is true and Joseph Smith was and is a prophet of God. We felt Peace and assurance, feeling of joyful heart with tears in our eyes. I couldn't describe fully of what happen that night but we felt the presence of the spirit bearing with power of the truthfulness of the Gospel. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Ladder-Day Saints is true and is being lead by a living Prophet today. I came to know my purpose here on Earth and I'm eternally grateful about it. Life is full of questions and struggles but living life with the Gospel of Jesus Christ also brought me countless blessings and answers. I know that I am a child of God. I love my Savior, Jesus Christ, who is the Redeemer of the world. I know that He lives. I know that by following His examples I'd be able to take my family back to Him and to my Heavenly Father. This is my eternal goal.

How I live my faith

I now serve in the Young Men presidency helping the Deacons Quorum fulfill their leadership skills, attend to their duties and responsibilities of their priesthood, and live the gospel in their lives. Its wonderful to work with them.
