Hi I'm Shad (Երեց Քուկ)

I'm a musician. I love longboarding and wrestling. (Separately, of course.) I am a Mormon.

About Me

Բարև Ձեզ! I've studied music in college. I can play the trumpet, piano, guitar, and voice fluently. I like learning and messing around with new instruments. I wrestled in high school. I love longboarding and hanging out with my friends. I'm currently serving an Armenian speaking mission in Arcadia, California!

Why I am a Mormon

The Book of Mormon is one of the main reasons why I know that the LDS church is the true church. For me, if you study and pray about the Book of Mormon, everything else works out in "if-then" statements. It may go something like this, "If the Book of Mormon is true, then Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God." "If Joseph Smith was a true prophet, then he really did restore the only true church." "If this is the only true church, then we know that all of the doctrines and practices done by the church are correct." And so on... That is what keeps me going. I know that the Book of Mormon is true. I have spent so much time studying and praying in order to find out the truth, and I believe that I have. If you have not yet prayerfully studied the Book of Mormon, I'd invite you to do so. It has brought me more joy than anything else I can think of. I hope you can share that same joy too. :) Ես գիտեմ որ այս եկաղէցի Ճջմարիտ է!

How I live my faith

I've served as the pianist for my ward choir and priesthood meetings. I've served as a leader in multiple youth groups, including Boy Scouts. I'm preparing to serve a mission in Arcadia California.

Are Mormons Christians?

Shad (Երեց Քուկ)
Yes, Mormons are Christians. Our entire religion is centered around Jesus Christ and His teachings. We believe that we cannot obtain salvation without Jesus Christ. We pray and worship in Jesus Christ's name. However, Latter-Day Saint's do not accept the creeds and practices added by councils of men three and four centuries after Christ's death. I believe a Christian is somebody who strives to live a Christ-like life and recognizes Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. We do just that. Show more Show less
