Hi I'm Henry.

I am from Provo, Utah. I like to play the violin and enjoy table tennis. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently going to college. My major is in Biology. Also, I have interests in politics, government, and history.

Why I am a Mormon

I've grown up in the church, but my mother is a convert, and my father is a second-generation convert. There are many reasons why I've decided to remain a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. First, this church is consistent with many Old Testament and New Testament principles. These ideas include: Having a prophet, paying tithing, the organizing of the Twelve Apostles, and the existence of miracles. Second, I've read the Book of Mormon and learned about the prophet Joseph Smith. I've come to the conclusion that if the church matches what Christ organized during his ministry, then the person who initiated the return of the organization, Joseph Smith, must be acting under God's direction. Thus, the Book of Mormon must be true. Only through asking questions and studying available literature can one come to an adequate decision. This takes time.

How I live my faith

Community involvement is key to following Christ's example. He taught to love your neighbor. Many service projects are in simple things like moving chopped wood, weeding/mowing a neighbor's lawn, raking leaves, shoveling snow, or fixing a fence. I also attend Institute at my local university. This is a program designed specifically for young adults to be in charge of developing themselves and people around them.
