Hi I'm John

I grew up in a small town in Nevada. I am currently working toward becoming an elementary school teacher. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a new husband and father who is just starting to figure out life. Most of my time is spent at work or playing with my beautiful wife and son. when i'm not doing those things i'm either gaming it up or watching/playing sports (golf, football, or basketball). I am definitely an outdoors person, i love camping, hiking, four-wheeling, and shooting. i wouldn't say that i've achieved a ton of things in my life, but i am proud of what i have done. I am an eagle scout, and i have received many awards in the scouting program. I was also involved in the 4-H program and received several awards due to that. I am a high school graduate and i am currently working on receiving my bachelors degree in elementary education. I love life and i am looking forward to the new and exciting things that the future will bring.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in the LDS church, but never really understood the blessings that come from being a mormon until now. The blessings i have received and will receive from being a righteous mormon are: strength to resist temptation, an eternal family, complete truth, spiritual guidance, authority to act in Gods name, and everlasting happiness. The thing that attracts me most to this church is its simplicity. As a church we believe that the gospel of Jesus Christ is: faith, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the holy ghost, and enduring to the end, and that is it. Enduring to the end is a little vague, but if i truly have faith in God, and i strive to have the holy ghost with me at all times, then i am willing do anything it takes to endure to the end. I am so very grateful for my savior Jesus Christ and his church that is here upon the earth. I know that this church is true because i have prayed about it and have received confirmation from the holy ghost that it is true and because of the happiness and peace i feel from being a part of this church.

How I live my faith

I am an active participant in the church, my family and i enjoy going to church and learning more about how we do better in our lives. We also enjoy socializing with other church members. I am a home teacher to two families in the church. I love going to their homes each month and getting to know them better. Being a member of this church brings me so much joy that i yearn to share my beliefs with everyone, by word and deed.
