Hi I'm Harrison W. Barrus

I'm a Mormon, and a Christian. I grew up on a farm in Idaho. I am a former Law Enforcement Officer, and I love Jesus Christ.

About Me

At the age of 19 I learned to speak Portuguese and served a two year full time Mission to the wonderful People living in Brasil. After returning home I attended BYU Idaho where I met and married my Beautiful wife. We Have three very wonderful children. I have a College degree in Criminal Justice. I am a licensed Private Investigator. I enjoy Scuba Diving, Hunting, Fishing, Camping, riding Motorcycles, and Shooting Sports. I have ridden my Hayabusa Motorcycle at 200 miles an hour.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon for several reasons. First I was born into a Mormon Family. However every Mormon has to become converted themselves, whether they were born into the faith or not. The Mormon faith is not a static once a week religion. It is a lifestyle that requires lots of Time, Energy, and Commitment if you are to get the full benefit of membership. It requires a Total Commitment to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and the only way to accomplish this is to become Converted to his true Gospel. I have many Friends and Acquaintances of other Faiths and all Faiths are full of Gospel Truths, however I believe that the Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints (the Mormons) is the only church with the total fullness of the Saviors Gospel. I have studied the gospel, served a Mission teaching people about it, Pondered over it, and Prayed about it, and I received a Personal Witness from my Heavenly Father that it is True. I know that He, God, Lives. That He has a body of flesh and bone even as we do, except that his is glorified and perfected, I know that His Son, Our Elder Brother, Jesus Christ came to earth, lived a perfect life, took upon him our Sins, Died and was Resurrected so that if we would follow his Teachings we can one day return to live with Him and His (our) Father as Resurrected Glorified Beings just like They are. I sincerely hope that You will give careful thought and study to this Gospel and come join with us in His Kingdom on Earth.

How I live my faith

I have been A youth leader for many years and my greatest joy is teaching the young people of the church about Jesus and His plan of salvation and Happiness. I am currently serving as first assistant in a group of men in my ward. I am In a Production our Stake is putting on called Savior of the World, about the Resurrection of Christ. I portray the Apostle Peter. I love the lord. I try to live every day as he would have me live. I try to think (what would he do) in each decision that I make.
