Hi I'm Donnie

I LOVE my family I have 2 children and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I work at Subway and make a mean meatball marinara! I LOVE Basketball and Michael Jordan is my hero! Not as much as Jesus! I watch mixed martial arts and play with my family for fun.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the south and was taught what I felt was contradictory belifes about God. I became an athiest for about 7 years as I set out to "prove" all religions wrong. In the process I studied Joseph Smith heavily and came to an understanding that this man had some type of assistance because he did things no mortal man alone could do. As I read his teachings I came to understand the true nature of God and my saviour Jesus Christ. I knelt and prayed to see if God actually existed and If Jesus Christ was my saviour. I felt a comfort as if someone had picked me up off the ground and hugged me and told me YES! I then prayed to see if Joseph was His chosen prophet and I felt the same feelings I felt when I prayed about the existance of God. From that point on Ive never doubtedbut I have struggled from time to time. Know matter what I go through in life I know with this knowledge and the Lord on my side I can conquer all things.

How I live my faith

I currently Teach the 14-15 year old boys in my ward and I actively help the Elders with missionary work.

What do Mormons believe concerning the doctrine of grace?

Donnie
In the south there is a lot of confusion about what our church teaches about this. Im often asked "do you believe grace saves you?" My answer is always YES! Only through the GRACE of Jesus Christ are we saved! We don't differ in that belief at all. However Through true faith in Christ actions are produced. Show more Show less
