Hi I'm Don

I like spending time with my Family. I'm from Arizona and now in North Dakota. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love my Family very much and I have many fond memories of being with them. I'm the 4th oldest of 6 kids and we have a wonderful Mother and Father. I am very grateful for the great examples my parents have given me and lessons they have taught by the way they live, lessons you can't just pretend. Even now as an adult (technically haha) I find great meaning in the things I have learned from my Family. I'm someone who loves to learn, create, and share. From people to machines, scriptures to textbooks, there's so many good things to learn about. I also love to create, building things has been a hobby of mine. Things like a robot that makes bowl's of cereal or a suit of armor for Halloween. Whenever I learn something or create something I want others to have too.

Why I am a Mormon

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has been to me a place of refuge. Just going to church I have felt it have a positive influence on my life. Reading the Book of Mormon has helped me during difficult times in my life. I know the Church is true. I know Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ live and love us so very much.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to do the right thing. Sometimes life just seems so hard to bear but we just keep at it one step at a time. Currently one way I live my faith is by serving as a Missionary. As Missionaries we teach about our Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ. We teach things we have done to draw closer to them and invite others to follow the Savior.

Why do Mormons perform baptisms for the dead?

Don
Baptism is an essential ordinance and in following the example of Jesus Christ we too must be Baptized by one of the Lords authorized servants. There are many who have not been baptized in this manner who have passed away and cannot be Baptized on their own. Like how the Savior paid the penalty for our sins in behalf of us, we have the Sacred privileged of being Baptized in behalf of our deceased Ancestors. They then are free to accept or reject that Ordinance done in their behalf. Show more Show less
