Hi I'm Justin

I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am a farmboy at heart. I like to raise animals. I have just recieved my mission call, to serve in the Riverside California mission. Im really excited and nervous.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been active in the church. Growing up i learned lessons of christ and our heavenly father. Read the scriptures as a family. Had family home evening on mondays. I attended my meetings as a boy scout and what not. But as i was going through high school, i kind of hit a wall. My mom worked for an assisted living, and i started working their just playing games with the residents.(Not being paid) but because i wanted to. After a period of time i was eventually hired and was a server. Since it was a assisted living their needs dont stop just cause its on sunday. So i found my self working on most sundays. Which turned into every sunday. At that time i fell away from the church. Even though the assisted living had sacrament services offer, i still felt no need to attend. In my head i didnt fully follow the teachings. By feeling this way i was missing something, i didnt completly feel whole at that time. Growing up around the church, listening to the words of the gosple and exspecting to just hear it and be done is not the way it works. You have to take an active role in the church. You have to not just read the scriptures and then close them. But you also have to ponder them and what it truly means to you. Thinking that you can hitch onto someones eles testimony will not cover it. You have to know for surity of the gospel. And for most part that was what i was doing. Just floating along hoping that i would not be called on to share. But I found that their is not happiness in doing that. It will only eat you up inside. You have to be willing to step out of you comfort zone. The reason why i am a mormon is because i want to be. I know that the church of Jesus Christ is the one and only true church. Another reason is that i found it in myself that the church is true. Not by being told to do so. Leaders are great, they guide us and let us know that they are there for us. But unless we act on teachings we cant fully be whole.

How I live my faith

I go to church every sunday, i am on the activitys committy that helps plan all of the fun things that we do as a singles ward.
