Hi I'm Connor Holmes

I'm a missionary, a farm boy, a nerd, and most importantly I am a Mormon

About Me

I love to play games with all my friends especially League of Legends, and Magic the Gathering. I am an Eagle Scout and i love math and science. I plan on attending college and majoring in either engineering or business.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in the church and have been an active member all my life. I have grown to love this church and i have seen it act positively in my life and i can honestly say that without this church and the gospel of Christ that is taught by its members that i would not be here today. In middle school i experienced daily mental and sometimes physical abuse from some of my class mates this led me to enter into a state of depression and even led me to have suicidal thoughts and it is only because of the foundation which i had built on Christ that I was able to overcome that time in my life. Helamen 5:12 says "And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall." I say with absolute certainty that this scripture is true and that if we build our foundation on Christ then we will be able to withstand the advancements of evil in our lives. I bear my testimony that i know this church is true. I know that Joseph smith was a prophet called by God to restore his church to the earth in these days. I know that it was by the power of God that he translated the Book of Mormon which is the most true and correct book upon the face of the whole earth. I know that through the gospel of Jesus Christ we are given all that we need to be happy. I know that I have the opportunity through Christ's atonement to return to live with my family in the presence of my father in heaven, and I say these this in the name of Jesus Christ amen

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a mission for my church by doing this i grow my faith everyday through study and prayer. I also have the opportunity to teach others about the gospel and to learn with them as they grow their own faith and become converted to the teachings of Jesus Christ.

What do Mormons believe about the nature of God?

Connor Holmes
I believe that God is my loving Father in heaven. I know that he knows me and loves me. God has a body of flesh and bone and created all of us in his image. Show more Show less

How are the activities of the Mormon missionaries funded?

Connor Holmes
In The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints all young men and young women have the opportunity to serve God by devoting either 2 years or 18 months of our lives to the service of our God. Most of these young adults fund the entirety of their mission on their own and i know that doing this provides great blessing to the individual. These blessings are provided not only though learning about and teaching the gospel of Christ but also through the responsibilities that they are given. Show more Show less
