Hi I'm Brian K. Folk Sr.

I'm a Morman. I grew up in Dundalk, Maryland. I'm a machinist in the Aerospace and Defence field for 33 years.

About Me

I'm a father of 6 boys. I love playing guitar, singing and spending quality time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a mormon because after studying in other faiths I still had an emptiness. I always felt that there was more to the story than what I have previously learned. After reaching a very humbling point in my life I was praying diligently for a week asking for my Father in Heaven to please help me, a couple missionaries came knocking on my door. I answered and invited them in. As we sat and talked awhile about the gospel and my life problems they told me that they were on their way home after knocking on doors and visiting members when a prompting told them to visit one more. They had no name or address so they decided to walk through the complex. As they walked they came to my door and could not pass. They said they felt a need to knock at my door, so they did. I told them how I prayed and prayed for God to help me and how I had just finished a prayer in sober humbleness and was about to give up when they knocked on my door. We all stood there for a moment absorbing what had just happened but I knew in my heart that my prayer had been answered. We talked about the book of Mormon and they invited me to read the testimony of Joseph Smith and pray to my Father in Heaven to ask if it was true. A warm feeling came over me like no other I have ever felt. I felt warm, my problems were lightened from me and for the first time in my life the gospel made sense to me. I am forever greatful for that day that I began to live again and I say this in the name of JESUS CHRIST, AMEN.

How I live my faith

As for now I read the scriptures daily and have family home evenings. My family prays together and whenever I have the opportunity I share my love of the restored gospel with my friends and family. I strive to be a servant unto all who ask of me.

What blessings can we receive through the gift of the Holy Ghost?

Brian K. Folk Sr.
You can be comforted in times of sorrow. You can be lifted up when our Father in Heaven Is pleased with something we have done. You can be protected in times of danger and influenced to help others in need. This is why we must always be humble and meek in this life and stay in tune with the spirit that we may receive revelation and inspiration. He blesses us with the ability to talk to our Heavenly Father. Show more Show less
