Hi I'm Harrison

I am a high school sophemore. I love to sing and act. I'm fascinated by American History and politics. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a sophemore in high school. I love music, particularly singing. I've been singing in chorus for about 2-3 years. I was adopted through this Church (LDS Social Services). I love politics and am an avid reader. I am fascinated by history, and antiquities, particularly American History.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church, and through prayer I'd received a peaceful feeling signifying that what this church teaches are God's principles. However there was a time where I didn't like going to church, and hated being forced to by my parents. Then one day, I was angry and bitter against my parents for something I'd gotten in trouble for, and I realized that they were right in what they were trying to teach me. I felt much better and that was sort of my "born-again" experience some christians talk about. I can't explain it, but all I know is that God is with this Church more than any other christian church I've ever seen.

How I live my faith

I try to live the standards by loving my neighbor as the savior admonished us to do. I try to serve my fellow man as often as I can. I study carefully all that is included within the great span of what is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Family prayers are very important to my family, as well as studying the scriptures as a family. We just started the Old Testament, and together we're rediscovering treasures of wisdom never-ending.

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is a record of the ancestors of Native Americans, who came from Jerusalem prior to it's downfall to Babylon. An ancient Jewish prophet named Lehi, with his family, left Jerusalem and sailed to present day Central America, and quickly prospered. These people understood the principles of Jesus Christ, and had their own prophets chosen by God to lead them. These people were the "other sheep" spoken of in John 10:16. The Book of Mormon helps to verify the doctrines in the Bible commenting on many chapters in Isaiah, and comparing the doctrines of both books. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about family?

The family is organized by the hand of God for man's happiness in this life. God has given the power for families to be sealed together so they'll be together in the next life. These keys of authority were given to Peter by Jesus (see Matthew 16:19) This authorty was re-given to Joseph Smith by God in the 1800s. Marriage is defined by God as by proper priesthood authority between a man and a woman. The family is one of the most wonderful gifts god has given man for his happiness.
