Hi I'm Todd Helie

I'm from Utah. I love sports and the outdoors and most of all... preaching the Gospel.

About Me

I have a huge family and I am the youngest of 10! I'm the second in my family to go on a mission and right now i'm serving in the Louisiana Baton Rouge Mission. I love being a missionary. To be able to help people everyday has been such a blessing for me and has helped me to come to know my Savior. I've also been privileged to come to Louisiana and minister among the Latino culture who live here in the United States. Having to learn Spanish has been quite the roller coaster but now it is such a blessing to be able to talk and understand a whole new world. It is awesome to be a missionary and it's something that I will always be thankful for.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Church my whole life, but like everyone else in the Church I had to find out for myself if it was true or not... and I did! I am a Mormon because I prayed to my Heavenly Father to know if the Book of Mormon is true. I had my doubts and questions, but after reading the Book of Mormon and asking with a sincere heart and desiring to know if it is true I found my answer. If you want to find out that something is right then do the research and ask! Duh! That's what I did. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true restored Church on the Earth today.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being a happy person. I believe that being a Mormon is all about being happy and a good example to others. I'm not trying to say that Mormons are the only happy people on the Earth. Of course not! But I do love this Church because it has taught be how to be happy and grateful for all the many blessings in my life. I believe that when we make others happy is when we truly find the most happiness.

How do I become a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church)?

Todd Helie
To become a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints you must be baptized by one having authority from God, or in other words, one holding the restored Priesthood. You must pray and find out for yourself if it is true and talk to a member of the church of missionaries to help you with any question that you may have. Show more Show less
