Hi I'm Damon

I grew up in Texas, USA. I'm a emergency dispatcher and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a convert to the church, baptized on December 11th, 2010. Im currently studying Computer Science at a nearby university. I'm preparing to get married on May 12th, 2012. I enjoy spending time with family, playing both video and board games.

Why I am a Mormon

I never really imagined that i would change faiths. I met my current fiance, Kat, in high school where she first introduced me to the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. At first i resented the church and spent many hours trying to find ways to tear apart Kat's testimony. This lifestyle lasted for 3 entire years. One day while searching for incriminating evidence against the LDS I was touched by the Holy Ghost. I recieved a small, yet powerful voice that said "why doest thou persecute thy prophet." This phrase rather confused me cause i never really researched into the current president Thomas S. Monson. So i spent the remainder of the night reading, listening and watching videos about the Prophet and the rest of the first presidency. After that night of powerful witnesses from the Holy Ghost i could not deny that i knew that The Church of Jesus Chirst of Latter Day Saints was the true church. When i gained that witness all those hours of empty knowlege became a useful and powerful testimony. When i met with the missionary only days after that night and a few weeks later i was baptised. My testimony grows daily and i couldnt imagine my life without the church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing my best to keep all our saviors commandments 100% of the time. Most of all let the light of Christ shine through me. The gospel gives me joy even while going to school and work full time aswell as preparing to get married and many other responsibilities that life trys to overshadow me with. I try to be a standard for the world and not let the world determine my standards. If im successful at this I can become a beacon to those who are looking for this joy and happyness, things that the gospel provides for everyone. Christ beckens his fathers children to come and partake of the the endless amount of blessings he has for you. Come and join your brothers and sisters who love you.

Why is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints called Mormons or Mormonism?

Damon
We are called Mormons, Mormonism or members of the Mormon church mainly for the fact that we believe in the Book of Mormon. And we believe it to be the word of God along with the bible, they go hand in hand with eachother. The Book of Mormon is an icon that seperates us from other church organizations and is the basis for our nickname. We prefer to be known by our official name, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This doesnt mean that we dislike our nickname, we just want everyone to know for sure that we serve Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
