Hi I'm Gordan Epperson

I'm a Mormon. I live in West Valley City, Ut. I have 4 brothers and 4 sisters and am #8 in my family.

About Me

I currently have two brothers out on a mission one in the Birmingham, Alabama mission and one in the Washington D.C North mission. I am the eighth child in my family. BYU is my university that I hope to go to, and I also plan on going on a full time mission in 4 years. My family is very important to me and after this life I hope to live with them again.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and my parents were married in the Salt Lake Temple. The Church has brought so much joy to my life and all the lessons and the teachings that are given to us are just to help us and without them I don't think i would be a member at all. I believe that one day we will be reunited with our father in heaven and with loved ones lost. I testify that this church is true and that Joseph Smith did restore this gospel and without him I don't think that I would be here on this earth. I love this gospel and I'm so thankful for the happiness it's brought into my life.

How I live my faith

I do anything I can to help out in my ward, I am currently the second counselor in my Teachers quorum. I am willing to do anything in the ward. The ward I'm in is great and wouldn't want to switch for any reason. If I need to teach a lesson I will gladly do it and try my best to bring the spirit with me.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?
