Hi I'm Casey

I live in England, I am a missionary, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I live in England now, as a missionary for the Church in the England London South Mission. I am from Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, in the United States, and I have lived there for most of my life. I love animals! I was studying Veterinary Technology at University before my mission, and I will continue to study that after I return home. I have 5 brothers and 3 sisters, and my parents are happily married. My life is devoted to the Lord. Everything that I do is a reflection on Him, and I try my best to serve Him well. The Lord is my life. That's all I can say about me.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe that this church is the one true church that Jesus Christ established when He was here on the Earth. I've been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for my entire life. I was born with parents that were already members of the church. I was an obedient kid and I always went to church with my parents, and did what I was supposed to do. As I got older I was tired of just following the path that was expected of me. I wanted to know for myself if the church was true, and if it was the Lord's church. I fasted, and prayed. I read my scriptures, and I asked the Lord if it was all true. I know, without a doubt in my mind, that the church is true. I felt the most powerful, wonderful, happiness, and calm when I asked Him. I knew that was His answer. I knew that by those feelings, He was telling me that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the one true church, with all of the teachings that the Lord wanted us to have. I know this church is true, and that we have the fulness of the everlasting gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to follow the example of Jesus Christ. He was constantly helping others and doing the right thing. He was perfect, and I know that I can't be perfect, or even get close. However, I can do my best to try to live my life the way to Christ lived His. I am now serving a mission for the Church, and this is a way that I can share with others what I know to be true so that they can have better lives. I saw a definition for the word missionary that i loved, and it said, "Someone who leaves their family for a short time, so that others may be with their families for eternity".

What do Mormons believe about the Bible? Do they regard it as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Casey
We believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly. We believe that God called prophets, like Adam, Abraham, and Moses, to write the Bible. We read the Bible, and to us it is Holy Scripture. We also believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God. The Bible and the Book of Mormon, go hand in hand, to both testify of Jesus Christ.
