About Me

My name is John and I was born and raised in Nebraska but when I was two years old my parents got divorced but my mom got re-married to someone else when I was in high school but in the courthouse. I was not born into the church what i mean by that is it wasn't until i graduated from high school after that i decited to join the church but i knew it was the right thing to do for me. Well in the year of 2010 I met my beautiful somoan wife and then in the year 2012 we was sealed and married for time and all 'eternity in the Draper Utah Temple to my wife Meridian we dont got any kids yet my wife is in the US NAVY and i work at Wendy's fast food restaunt its not that bad cause a job is a job. We live in California now what we like to do well everyday my wife gets home from work we go exercising by going for a walk or jogging or running we also do extra exercises like pull ups,crunches,push ups, jump and jacks,lifting weights,and other extra exercices for an hour. My favorite sports that I like to play are Football and Hockey and recently Rugby I am not going to college yet but I will be going to college in the near future right now i enjoy living life to the fullest but marriage has changes my life but not in a bad way in a good way actually. My wife and I try to go on dates one day out of the week and go to the Temple at least one day out of the week too.

Why I am a Mormon

Well you ask why I am a Mormon but I like to say LDS cause we are The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints. a couple years ago probably seven years ago a learned something a couple missionary told me He said you know what the word really mean LDS he told me Live It,Do It,Say It thats what a true Mormon or LDS does Coverversion Story into the church I am now gonna tell you about how I John came into knowing about the church between the ages of 12-19 i would ask my relatives in Utah about questions about the church but never understood but one summer after I graduated from high school I was with my uncle on temple square and i talked with the LDS Missionaries a while that day I understood most things they said they refered some LDS Missionaries to me in Nebraska where I lived at that time I was 19 at this time but after I went back to Nebraska my Great Grandpa Thornley died so I had to go back to Utah for the funeral during the furneral my aunt told me to go up and shake this persons hand she told me he was like an apostle is Jesus Christ day I went up to him and old him I was the person that died there great grandson and he told me is that possible and smiles and laughed and that person was President James E. Faust from the church an apostle of Jesus Christ then when I went back to Nebraska my missionaries contacted me like a week later they told me about the Holy Bible and The Book Of Mormon and asked me to pray about it two days later they came back and i told them I knew it was true and wanted to be Baptised cause i knew it was the true gospel and the true church on the Earth we had a couple more talks then a coupe weeks later my uncle from Utah came and Baptised me it was the best feeling ever.

How I live my faith

Well you ask how I or my family lives our faith there are many ways to live by faith faith is a good word people use alot even though you cant see faith doesn't mean it isn't there cause it is truly there. Well since i became a member back in 2002 it has changed my life a lot but for the better I have done a lot of home teaching and checking up on those families too I just joined a new ward in California its a family ward but i can tell it has such a very strong spirit there and so much love and everyone helps each other out I also live my faith by praying in the mornings when I get up and before I go to bed and read the scriptures as often as I can some of my church calling i do not know by name but I will tell you about it my first one was a help find people to say opening and closing prayer for our Sunday school meeting,I also helped clean the entire building make sure all chairs was put away doors and windows was locked but i was last to leave the building usually,ward missionary,called people to make sure they did all there home teaching in the ward and see how they are doing,and last is i cleaned the building and locked the doors and had helpers help me in the ward to clean the whole building on Thursdays only, and now im waiting for my new calling in my new ward My Testimony I John have a testimony the The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints to be the true church upon the Earth in there Latter Days and I am so blessed to be sealed to my beloved wife for time and all eternity I know that families can be together forever I am so greatful for this gospel cause if we did not have this gospel life would be very sad I am glad that Jesus christ is my brother and savior and he has done so much for me and one day I know I will do something great for him I know that saying our prayers reading the scriptures going to church going to the temple missionary work serving others are ways to return to him again he loves us all and i say this in Jesus Christ Amen.

What do Mormons believe about “eternal life?”

John
If you truly know everything about the church eternal life is the highest goal of it all we speak a lot of eternal life cause we only take with us when we die is our families and the knowledge which we gain everyone is equal God send us here so we could learn and return to live with him one day he knew we would make mistakes but he wanted to see if we could learn from it Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe happens to us after we die? What do Mormons believe about life after death?

John
Well us after we die is not a sad time its a beginning too just like we are born we get a new body but we also believe that if children die that and anyone that dies we will see them again one day in heaven cause families are forever God never wants us to be alone He wants each of us to be happy In The Book Of Mormon Alma 40:11 it says : Now concerning the state of the soul between death and the resurrection behold it has been made known unto me by an angel that the spirits of all men as soon as they are departed from this mortal body yea the spirits of all men whether they be good or evil are taken home to that God who gave them life.
