Hi I'm Joel Spendlove

I love sports, my Family, my Friends and being a Mormon.

About Me

My hobbies consist of playing football, coaching wrestling, doing crazy stuff with my friends, and spending time with my family. My best memories are when my brother and I would go down stairs and watch The Office till we fell asleep. Haha we sure do have great times just talking about sports and life. I am a very fun loving person you could say. I love to help people with problems in there lives. I am currently a Para Educator for Blue Peak High School and I love working with the special needs students. They bring such joy and happiness into all the little things in a day. I also recently returned home from serving a 2 year mission in Tampa Florida and I LOVED IT!!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon cause it all just makes sense! I have been a member all my life but back when I was in High School I doubted the Church and whether or not it was true. I wasn't doing the things a member of the Church should be doing and I felt a big dark void in my life. As I continued through High School I started to make better friends and better choices but I still felt an empty spot in my life. When I was a Senior in High School the subject for seminary that year was The Book of Mormon. I started off doing what I had done the previous three years of seminary and just used my scriptures as a pillow. Then one day I decided I would give it a shot. As I started to read and pray about The Book of Mormon that emptiness that was in me was gone. I felt our Saviors love for me as an individual and it hasn't left me since. As I have continued to read and ponder about the Book of Mormon it has continued to mold me into who I am today. Every time I sit down and study there is always something that hits me like a ton of bricks. The Book Of Mormon helps me in so many different ways and I know it has done the same for many others. I love this gospel and having the opportunity to share it with those who haven't excepted or have fallen away like I had. I love my Savior and all that he has done for me and I know he can do the same for you.

How I live my faith

Right now I strive to study the scriptures and the words of our Leaders in these Latter Days. I also strive to make it to the Temple once a week.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Joel Spendlove
We can come to know our Father in Heaven through simple humble and fervent prayer. He is always there for us. He is literally our Father and wants to hear from us and hear how we are doing. When we pray earnestly and humbly it gives Him the opportunity to let us know He is there through the Power of The Holy Ghost. He will enter into our hearts and gives us the warm feelings of His love for you as an individual. He is just waiting for the opportunity to touch our hearts. All we have to do is pray.
