Hi I'm John

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm an engineer that enjoys solving problems. I'm also an avid fly fisher and tie my own flies. I love the spending time with my wife watching movies, especially those based on the works of Jane Austen. I love to read about new things, new places, things in the past and what caused them to happen.

Why I am a Mormon

Because I've prayed to know that the Book of Mormon is really from God, that it was translated by a prophet of God, and that it contains the words of ancient American prophets who were visited by Jesus Christ. I found out that God does answer prayers, that the Book of Mormon is what it says it is, Another Testament of Jesus Christ. I love reading it's words, how I can feel through the Spirit of God that they are true. I know of myself, not because my parents taught me that it was true or that my friends said so but I know directly from God himself that the Book of Mormon contains His words and the teachings of God's prophets in another part of the world besides Jersulaem. Because of this I know that God talks to all His children no matter where they are, to guide them back to His presence. Because I know the Book of Mormon is true I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. I also know because the Spirit testifies that he was whenever I read what he taught about Christ. Since God loves all His children, if there were prophets anciently, they must be prophets today and as Christ said "by their fruits ye shall know them".

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to adhere to my favorite scripture in the Book of Mormon which says "...Therefore, my son, see that you are mericful unto your brethern; deal justly, judge righteously, and do good continually; and if ye do all these things then shall ye receive your reward; yea, ye shall have mercy restored unto you again; ye shall have justice restored unto you again; ye shall have a righteous judgment restored unto you again; and ye shall have good rewarded unto you again. For that which ye do send out shall return unto you again, and be restored..." Whether it's fishing with the scouts, visiting other members, helping those around me, etc., if I can do so in a way that tries to follow the example of the Savior others' lives will be blessed and through them my life will be blessed also
