Hi I'm Dennis

I'm a Mormon and I am Mormon Strong.

About Me

My name is Dennis. I work for a company that provides automotive services. I am prior service Army where I served five years as an Infantryman. I am the father of an amazing teenage daughter of our Heavenly Father. I attend college full time working towards a Bachelors Degree in Exercise Science and Sports Management. I enjoy spending time serving others, CrossFit Training, reading and studying anything that will help me get stronger, and quiet, spirit filled evenings. I am not perfect, but I continually strive to do better for everyone I know.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I know it to be the true church of Jesus Christ, the church that Jesus originally tried to reestablish upon the earth during His mortal ministry, but was crucified before it could take flight. This church possesses the only real and proper authority to conduct affairs and the saving ordinances on behalf of Our Heavenly Father in His Holy name and none other. It is an authority restored to this earth through His chosen, resurrected disciples, Peter, James, and John, to the Prophet Joseph Smith, Jr., and that authority to continues to exist in these latter-days.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing the simple things such as attending my weekly meetings, worthily partaking of the sacrament each week, daily scripture study, meaningful daily prayer, doing my home teaching, fulfilling my calling in the church, serving others, but most importantly, being a sincere and genuine friend , just like Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to all those that cross my path. Being kind and sincere, honest, virtuous, benevolent, chaste, compassionate, and understanding, and not being judgmental is the key to success in finding joy and happiness in this life and the life to come. I also love to invite others to come unto Christ when I can. I serve as the Lord's missionary while I am on His errand.

What is the priesthood?

Dennis
The Priesthood, or the Holy Order of God, IS the authority to ACT in God's name. With this sacred authority, a worthy male member can perform the Saving ordinances as well as healing the sick and afflicted. By this Priesthood, all things were created that we know of. It was present during the creation of this world and it was present during the Savior's earthly ministry. It is the same priesthood that was bestowed upon the Prophet Joseph Smith to restore the church that Jesus Christ, Our Savior, had originally intended to start during His time upon the earth, but due to the unbelief of the people that surrounded Him, it never took flight.
