Hi I'm Justin

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in Utah and I enjoy a variety of things especially learning and sharing Christian beliefs.

About Me

I work for a utility trailer manufacturing company fulltime. I work on cars and trucks for extra money and to help people out. I enjoy camping, fishing, inspirational books, and leisure time. I am married to a wonderful lady with two kids. They teach me a lot about Love and being family oriented.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the LDS church but lacked a fervent testimony of my own. Throughout my childhood and teenage years I had both dedication to the church and rebellion against it. Throughout my rebellion I thought an expressed negatively towards the church and its members. My experiences led me into four states, a variety of jobs, people of other faiths, and a lot of moral, physical, and spiritual wrong choices. When I had finally been stripped of all hope, I had a penetrating thought. This thought said " This is not what God wants for you". At that time I felt and thought that there must be something different to life, than that in which I had been receiving. About 1 1/2 years after having this thought I began to change my choices. Thanks to being incarcerated. I remember laying on my jailhouse bed thinking, what can I do to change my life. I received a book called "Believing Christ" by Stephen E. Robinson. I began to have a reoccuring thought voiced by my grandpa "Read the testimony of the three and the eight witnesses of the Book of Mormon and then pray and ask if it is true". So I did. I did'nt have to ask, I did'nt have to pray, I just knew. From that moment on my life has changed. I now know that our Father in Heaven is a Father of principals and ordinances. I believe that these principals and ordinances are more fully expressed and acted upon in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. May we all learn to Love and Forgive our brothers and sisters.

How I live my faith

I think it is important to attend church weekly, to have personal and family prayer daily, to read and ponder scriptures personally and collectively with family, friends and church associates. I enjoy doing small and simple things for people (names) that come to my mind.
