Hi I'm Zachary Horlacher

I'm a Mormon. And you should be to :)

About Me

My name again is Zachary Horlacher and I was born in Henderson (Las Vegas) Nevada. My family and I moved to Bunkerville, Nevada, when I was five years old. I grew up playing a few different sports until I found out which ones I enjoyed the most. In high school I played baseball, football, and also basketball. For my efforts in those sports I was awarded Athlete of the year". I graduated high school in 2010. In the year 2011 I left to the Billings, MT Mission until 2013.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I was born into the LDS faith, but I had to eventually find out for myself if the things I had been learning about were actually true. For example: Was Joseph Smith actually a prophet of God? (Yes). Is the Book of Mormon "Another Testament of Jesus Christ"? (Yes). Once I knew these things were true, that's when I knew I was supposed to be a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Right now I am living my faith by giving up two years of my life to serve a two year mission for the LDS church. I get to teach people the life changing principals that Christ himself taught while he was on the earth. I try to be an example of a follower of Christ.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

“We do not worship [Joseph Smith] the Prophet. We worship God our Eternal Father and the risen Lord Jesus Christ. But we acknowledge the Prophet; we proclaim him; we respect him; we reverence him as an instrument in the hands of the Almighty in restoring to the earth the ancient truths of the divine gospel, together with the priesthood through which the authority of God is exercised in the affairs of His Church and for the blessing of His people” (Gordon B. Hinckley, “Joseph Smith Jr.—Prophet of God, Mighty Servant,” Ensign, Dec 2005, 2–6). Show more Show less
