Hi I'm Hyrum

I grew up in Pleasant Grove, Utah and now attend Brigham Young University studying piano performance. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am an LDS missionary, a spanish speaker, a competitive pianist, and a brother. I love the outdoors, sports, making jokes, laughing, and working hard. And I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and grew up in the LDS church. I was baptized at the age of 8 and have been a Mormon all my life. As a young child the Spirit of the Lord confirmed the truth of the Book of Mormon and Bible to me personally. As I have studied the Gospel of Jesus Christ I have come to know that Christ lives and that he paid for all my sins. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet and that the Lord's church continues to be led by a prophet. Following the gospel of Jesus Christ and serving others brings great joy into my life.

How I live my faith

In my congregation, I am the executive secretary to the Bishop. I keep his schedule and make sure meetings and activities are planned and go smoothly. I also go to the homes of 5 people in my congregation each month to talk to them about Christ and see if they need any service. I will soon leave on an LDS mission and dedicate two years to helping others come unto Christ.

Does The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints endorse political parties?

Hyrum
The LDS church does not endorse political parties. Principles of the gospel are found on all the major political platforms. Members do not all have the same political beliefs. Members are encouraged to be active in all the events and issues around the world. Show more Show less

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Hyrum
Mormon women are women who know their worth as a daughter of God. They are kind and loving teachers to the children and youth of the church. Men and Women are equal and parents should work together to create family goals and raise their children. Men and Women have different roles. Men provide, protect, and preside over their family. Women nurture their children. In these duties, husband and wife help and support each other. Show more Show less

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Hyrum
Throughout the history of the earth, God has called prophets such as Adam, Abraham, and Moses to reveal His plan of happiness. After years of having no prophet on the earth, God again showed His love for us by calling another prophet, Joseph Smith. God continues to show His love for us in these days by calling Thomas S. Monson to lead the church. Thomas S. Monson recieves revelation from God for not only the church but for the world. By following his teachings we can be assured safety from the evils that beset the world in these days. I know that Thomas S. Monson is a prophet like unto the prophets of old and am very grateful for this blessing. Show more Show less
