Hi I'm Jeffrey Murphy

I'm a Latter Day Saint, and Proud of it !!

About Me

Hi, I 'm Jeffrey, I'm 20 and getting ready to go on my mission. If I had to have one hobby It would be learning stuff. I love learning to do new things and experience new things.

Why I am a Mormon

Logical reasons: The teachings of the LDS Church are logical in comparison to what some other Christian religions teach. The Plan of Salvation covers all of the questions. Who am I? Why am I here? Where am I going? It teaches a concept of God that I can understand and relate to. The LDS God is a loving God who is just and merciful. It's logical to me that God would send us to a family at birth and that He would allow those bonds to continue after death. The LDS concept of Heaven and Hell makes much more sense than any other religion. The teachings give me comfort and peace. Participation in church callings have helped me develop skills and confidence that I otherwise wouldn't have developed. I'm a stronger person because of this. Along with this, members are encouraged to develop their talents and skills, to benefit themselves and others. It has been a great religion in which to raise children. Members look after each other.

How I live my faith

The Apostle Paul taught that "faith is the substance [assurance] of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen" (Hebrews 11:1). Alma made a similar statement: "If ye have faith ye hope for things which are not seen, which are true" (Alma 32:21). Faith is a principle of action and power. Whenever we work toward a worthy goal, we exercise faith. We show our hope for something that we cannot yet see.
