Hi I'm John

I grew up in Colorado. I am studying Physics. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a new father with a one year old son and I am attending college full time. I enjoy watching movies with my wife and spending time with my son when I am not studying.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Mormon Church. I stopped going to church when I was 17, and for several years I thought I was enjoying life. On my twenty third birthday my cousin took his own life. I was close to him and at the time felt like I had lost my best friend. I decided I needed to truly ask God if the Mormon Church was His church on the earth. So, I prayed and asked Heavenly Father if Joseph Smith was really his prophet and was it true that he saw God the Father and Jesus Christ as he claimed. I remember feeling very warm, calm, clear, and peaceful after praying. I can only explain that I knew without a doubt that Joseph Smith told the truth. After this experience I decided to go back to church and become an active member. One of the best decisions of my life.

How I live my faith

I enjoy organizing church activities on a quarterly basis. I also enjoy visiting several families that attend my local church meetings every month. Doing this helps me serve others and think about the needs of people I care about and this in-turn helps me become more like my Savior.
