Hi I'm John

I work in the oil and gas industry, love motorcycles, boats, camping, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father of three and husband to a wonderful wife. We love to camp, play on the boat, and ride motorcycles in the summer. I served a mission for the LDS Church in Tulsa, OK. I have worked as an HVAC Tech and owned my own business. I currently work in the oil and gas industry.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a Mormon means you believe in Christ and want to follow his teachings. I have not always lived in a way that emulated the Saviors teachings and kept with that standard. Each of us, no matter the circumstances, HAS to come to Christ, be born again, and gain a realization of the blessings of forgiveness that he offers. My personal belief in God has grown like a planted seed, slowly over time. No one has ever forced me to believe or asked me to act beyond what I was comfortable with. I have always been encourged to read and pray and gain my own knowledge of the truth. I have come to know the truth of the doctrine of the LDS Church through the whisperings of His Holy Spirit. It has spoken truth to my heart and I have felt the "peace of Christ" that "passeth all understanding." (Phillipians 4:7) Each day as I strive to do what the Savior taught, I am renewed in that testimony and it has become a part of who I am.

How I live my faith

I try to live so that if the Savior were here he would be proud of the person that I am. I have seen His influence around me helping me accomplish the the things he has asked me to do. I work with the youth in our church, primarily the young men. In addition to our Sunday activities, we meet during the week as boy scouts. We have a new troop that we just started up.

Why do Mormons believe in the Bible?

John
The Bible testifies of Christ. It contains the sacred writings of prophets and apostles and their recorded histories. It is foundational to the beliefs in the LDS Church. Show more Show less
