Hi I'm joe
I'm a Mormon.
hi i'm a 4th generation grain farmer in eastern NC. turned 45 on 10/28 and was baptized into the LDS Church the same day in 2011.
Why I am a Mormon
i attended the local Baptist Church as a child & teen, and then visited many other denominations never understanding the concepts they put forth? My Mother passed in '08 and i began a sincere search for truth. i researched the LDS Church for 1.5 years before asking Heavenly Father if what i had learned was truthful? i didn't meet with the Elders until i was ready to be Baptized. it came very easy & made sense to me. having studied the history of Bible in this search for truth, helped me accept the truth of the LDS faith which beforehand i was mostly ignorant of even though we had some neighbors who where members growing up? we just never exchanged our religious views and i today believe it happened when Heavenly Father intended for it to.
How I live my faith
Being practically new to the "Church", i am still learning how the Church is organized & how it operates. I continue to search & dig for truth through reading, watching & listening to Hugh Nibley and many other Mormon Scholars talks, Mormon Channel Radio Shows & BYU TV/Radio and attending Sunday meetings.
