Hi I'm Denis Baryshnikov

Hi, I'm a member of the LDS church. I am a convert, from Russia and live in Phoenix AZ

About Me

I Am convert to the church, I was born in Russia within an Athiest family. I Struggled with activity growing up but ended up finding a testimony of my own in the LDS church. I reside in Arizona where I am Married to the most amazing woman ever. I served a mission in 2011 in Sacramento California speaking English and Russian.

Why I am a Mormon

I gained a testimony by questioning everything. I thought I had to have an answer for everything until I realized that there are too many questions out there in the world and if you really broke down every question you had what really matters in the end? My answer was "LOVE" we live everyday out because we love someone or something. Cause at the end of the day it doesn't matter if you had the answer to every biblical or non biblical question. It's if we cared enough to love others enough to what was right. Being a Mormon is the way I feel I can give myself and my family a way to live right!

How I live my faith

I live my life the the fullest, where everyday counts and I make the most of every second. My motto is live life to the fullest, Live a life that matters. I feel that everyone we meet talk to and share our lives with has a purpose in teaching us how to better ourselves and our family. The church has given me a family and I give back by caring for everyone I know.

What is done with the tithing that Mormons pay?

Denis Baryshnikov
Tithing is 10% of our increase. The money that is given in tithing goes to furthering the lords work. Plain and simple it goes to building and paying for the churches we all see. The work of the lord. Tithing is 100% accounted for and goes to where it is needed most because it is not anyone's money other then the lord and every dollar is sent to where it is needed in the world. Show more Show less
