Hi I'm TJ KIRTON

I grew up in Draper Utah, and love the great outdoors.I'm a Mormon.

About Me

About me, Im 19, serving in the Iowa Des Moines Mission and loving life. I love the outdoors, like hunting, fishing, boating, shooting, and camping. If it sounds like fun im there. I play basketball, baseball and football when I can, I play to have a good time. What I want to accomplish in life is to go to school and gain an education for a future career. After the career is started up I want to start a family, that will be able to enjoy life through the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? That is a great question, I am a Mormon because we are the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints. When you come to know your relationship between you and your heavenly father, you are willing to give up anything to be with him again and the only way to do that is through your savior Jesus Christ and his teachings. Christ restored his only church, here on this earth today through a prophet, named Joseph Smith. Also we recieve revalation through a prophet Thomas S. Monson, to guide us through these troubling times. God loves all of his children and he will not leave us alone in this life or the next. He gives us apportunities to grow and strengthen our testimonies because he loves us, only true happiness comes from our heavinly father, that is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

My faith is so very simple, but so very hard. I say this because the gospel of jesus christ is very simple, but in these time is hard to live. Not hard because because of the distactrions around us, but hard because we know we have to change in order to live with our heavinly father again. When we know we have to change we know that it will cause us to be alone, in a world where media, friends and electronics are everything to us. I try to live in the standards that christ has set for us, by attending church, meetings and activities that help us grow closer to our heavinly father. Try to slow down and let the holy ghost teach us, by letting go of the worldly things, even though you might fill alone the power of the atonement will pick you up if you will let it.
