Hi I'm John Ochs

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in California. I am studying to become a pediatrician.

About Me

I have recently returned home from my mission in Nicaragua after two years and I loved every minute of it. I am getting ready to go to college to become a pediatrician. I love being busy and doing lots of fun stuff. I am up to new adventures at any given time. I enjoy running to clear my mind and reading books to fill it back up again. Scouting is awesome and it will always be a part of my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because my Heavenly Father desires for me to be. This religion gives me structure and guidance in my life. It has never failed me and never will. I have grown and learned beyond what I could have imagined by living the principles of the gospel. I have a firm testimony that this is the true church of which Jesus Christ himself organized and created like in times of old. The Book of Mormon, which is the keystone of our religion, is best described

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving others. I try to be an example at all times so that others me see what I am about. I constantly invite others to learn more so that they may too experience the pure happiness that I have.
