Hi I'm Philip

I have grown up in Oregon my whole life and work for my father's business. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love sports and played football for 7 years in the area. I went to college for one semester before deciding to go on a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and have always been involved in it. As i was getting older and started to wonder for myself what the church was all about i started to go to my church classes and really listened to what they were talking about and what they were trying to teach. I listened and started to feel a warm feeling in me and a want to learn. I knew that it was the spirt and decided i wanted to know for my self what it was to be a member of this church. So for one year I read The Book of Mormon and ask Heavenly Father if what i had read was true. That feeling I had felt, the warm feeling inside burned within me and I knew that THe Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was true and that everything I had read in The Book of Mormon was true. I know that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is for everyone and that if you read The Book of Mormon and ask in faith if what you read is true He will tell you. I know that the choices I have made in my life have lead me to go on a mission and that it is the choice that my Heavenly Father wants me to make because He knows that i will grow from it and will become a better person for it.

How I live my faith

i participate in my ward through being at the events and also by helping if they need help and trying to make everyone feel welcome at the events. I have taught 11 year old scouts and helped them to love scouts and to get the most out of it like i did.
