Hi I'm Eli

I'm an avid soccer fan, I'm a Canuck, I love nature and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Eli. I have done one year of university where I started my bachelor of science degree. I love to play sports, all sports, but my favorite is soccer. I also love music, listening to music, playing music, creating music and learning new musical instruments. I live in the Great White North (Canada) in a small mining community.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a small town where my family were the only members so being a Mormon was kind of tough, especially when I got to high school. None of my friends were Mormon or even had much belief in God so it was difficult to be different. I truly learned there what it meant to be an "example of the believers". Everything I did and said directly reflected to my friends what a Mormon was so I had to be careful. The easiest way to be a good example to them was to follow the commandments. As long as I did that I would be okay. Through becoming more acquainted with my Savior Jesus Christ I have grown not only the quantity of my faith but also the quality of my faith. As I learn about all of the wonderful things that he did before his life, during his life and after his mortal life I am building onto my foundation of faith and growing to be a more faithful disciple of Him.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through example. When people see and notice a difference in me and the way I act they tend to ask questions. I do this because I am proud of who I am and I know that Jesus Christ lived by example and so I must try to also. He will always be my greatest example to live up to but I also like to live up to the example of my Dad.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Eli
The Book of Mormon is written by prophets of God, much like the Bible is. The only real difference is the location of the prophets. The Bible was written over in middle east/Jerusalem area and the Book of Mormon was written by prophets in the Americas. These prophets in the Americas came over from Jerusalem at around 600 B.C. and created civilizations over here. The Book of Mormon is a record of these people and their dealings with God. The prophets testify of Jesus Christ and his life and ministry. The Book of Mormon starts with a prophet named Lehi and him taking his family across the ocean to the americas. The last prophet in the Book of Mormon is a prophet named Moroni who puts forth a challenge to all whole read the Book of Mormon. The challenge is that whosoever reads and prays about the Book of Mormon will have the Holy Ghost manifest unto then the truthfullness of it. Show more Show less
