Hi I'm Frank Holowka Jr

My name is Frank Holowka Jr. I'm a songwriter. I love movies and travelling. I love my family and friends. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My dad served in the Air Force for 24 years, so I come from a military family. I've also got a love for travelling. I was raised in Valdosta, Georgia for 10 years. Then I lived in Ramstein, Germany for 8. Now my family lives in Utah. I'm glad I've got to see the world. Now I'm currently serving a mission in Donetsk, Ukraine. I love music. I'm a singer/songwriter. I saw a good amount of success and hope to continue after I'm home. I also love movies. Oldies and new, I'm pretty sure I've seen and listened to more movies and music than anyone. I love my family and friends most of all. I have a mother, father, 3 sisters, one brother, and my dog Gadget. They're amazing. I love the church, and know that it is true. I've seen its truth and principles change lives, including my own. I haven't always known it, but through my life, seeing the changing world around me, and the steadiness of the church, I have come to know just how true this church is. This is a message of happiness. It gives eternal progress and purpose. It makes friendships stronger. And it makes the world a better place. This is a fact. You look at the news, the sadness, anger, confusion, loss of identity, and darkness all around us today and can't help but wonder what's going on. Where is the Lord? You find yourself using a lot of questions that start with "Why...?" I have a strong testimony that God loves us, and has a plan for all of us. Though the way is sometimes hard to see, the answer is always the same.

Why I am a Mormon

This is the truth. I promise. It's not easy, we're not perfect, and others aren't perfect. Sometimes it's difficult to see why things are the way they are. It's hard to see sad things in the world, in our lives, and in the lives of those we love most. Especially today when everyone it seems is attacking the things that bring true, lasting happiness and our potential. I love this church. It is true. It follows the Bible, and is a testimony that God lives today. It is restored truth that clears out all the debate, contention, and confusion that has occurred since the time Christ established His church on the earth. This is His church. We follow and love Him in word and action. There is always hope. I am a member of this church because it is the only completely true and steady foundation left in the world today, and it will continue to be. If you have faith in Jesus Christ and seek to find out the truth of this message for yourself, then you will find this happiness, this comfort, and guidance in life. That is why I am a Mormon. My life is not and never will be perfect. On this earth, honestly I wouldn't want it to. I love when things go well, but a little adversity now and then makes it interesting. That is how we learn and grow. We are defined by the experiences we have. This truth is worth fighting for. If you haven't come to know that this is true yet, try harder. If you've tried before, try again. It's worth it.

How I live my faith

I have a strong witness that anyone who wants to become a better person, and want to find guidance in all of the confusion these days, if they keep trying, they will eventually come to a knowledge that there is a God. If they come to that knowledge and with an open heart look for more truth about who He is, and what he has done for us in the past and continues to do today, that they will find the truth of God in the Bible, in the Book of Mormon, and in modern-day prophets who do the same things as those of old (and all three of which are inspired of God.) They will understand Him and His Son, Jesus Christ better, and progress. They will discover that they aren't perfect, but have the potential to be. They will realize that they are loved and can find strength in the hardest of times. They will know that they can help others do the same. I feel that I live my faith by trying to do that better every day.

Are Mormons Christians?

Yes. We follow the Bible and the teachings of Christ. We believe that He is the Son of God. We believe that He lived a perfect life, and set the example that we should strive to follow. Show more Show less
