About Me

I like a lot of things but a few things I love. I LOVE lacrosse. I have played throughout Middle School and highschool, as well as a year in college. I love lax'n it up on my free time, and of course listening to music! A few of my favorite bands/ artist are Circa Survive, Radiohead, Kings of Leon and John Mayer.When im not lax'n, Im cod'n out!! ( Call of Duty ) Im a Xbox convert, from PS3. Playstation still has my heart. I currently have the best life out of everyone for 2 years, Serving, and Inviting the people of Las Vegas to come unto Jesus Christ and teach them about the restored Gospel through Jospeh Smith. Another thing I LOVE! I truly love all these things, and they are a part of my personality. But my Family is the core of my loves. I have a beautiful mother who is married to my awesome father with 4 brothers! I can't imagine life without them all!

Why I am a Mormon

I have been blessed with the privelage of being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints My entire life. Throughout Highschool I attended church and attended an early morning seminary class before school. I had an early goal too serve the Lord and go on a mission. Although this goal was one I have had set, I really started working towards it again after I finished a year of college. My older brother having set the example before me too go on a mission, really motivated me and caused a fire to burn from within me. I had really started praying and reading the scriptures too find out if This church was true. After Dilligently reading, and through honest prayer, I had recieved my answer that this was the true church of Jesus Christ. It has blessed me so much in my life, I want to share what I know and the blessings I have recieved with everyone. Most importantly, if i truly want to be with my family for eternity, with immortal bodies.. I must always strive to live the gospel.

How I live my faith

I currently am a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Famiies can be together for eternity! I have the privelage to dedicate ALL my time for 2 years, to help the rest of Heavenly Fathers children learn exactly how to do that. I have dedicated my time unto the Lord too teach and serve the people of Las Vegas, and to share what I know about the restoration of Jesus Christ true church on the earth today. "Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them..." Other than the savior himself, My mother and might I even add my earthly father have taught me how to be charitable. What manner of men ought we to be? like the savior himself.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Grant Reed
Our message is focused on Jesus Christ and His Atonement for all people. We teach about Heavenly Fathers plan for his children, the Plan of Salvation, that answers questions such as, " Where do we come from? What is our purpose on earth? Where do we go after this life? " Most importantly, We will be guides to help answer your questions and to teach you the message of the Restoration. Show more Show less

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

Grant Reed
In my personal life, the seen blessings of scripture study helps me to draw nearer unto my Savior. Peace, comfort, and answers come to me as I read and ponder the messages counsel they contain. In 1 Nephi chapter 8, when Nephi is describing his vision of the Tree of Life, there was a group that made it to the tree that was 'continually' hanging on to the Iron Rod (word of GOD). This is how we feast upon the words of Christ. To recieve answers and peace, we must Ponder them, compare them and link scriptures together. Your desire to be like the savior will grow, and you will naturally love others as he would. On my mission, I have memorized many scriptures. As we live worthy of the Holy Ghost companionship he will remind us the scriptures we have read. The savior counseled Oliver Cowdery and Joseph Smith which is recorded in D&C 24:8. He tells them to be patient in afflictions, and in doing so he will be with us until the end of our days. This passage reminds me that I will always have trials in life, but the Savior is always there to help me out. Show more Show less

What is the priesthood?

Grant Reed
The priesthood is Just Power, the power of God... If you have that power, you have authority; authority to act in Gods name to be his hands serving the children of God by baptising, giving the gift of the Holy Ghost, Healing, Teaching, and so forth. Power has always been in the blueprints of the Gospel and Church of Jesus Christ.... when you think of star wars, if you do not have the force then you are not a member of the Jedi Reign.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Grant Reed
In this mortal sojourn, we will never be able to put into words the full meaning of the Atonement of Jesus Christ, But,This is why we are here, because of this act. We are here on earth to gain experience to become " as one " with God, and to fulfill the commandment Jesus gave when he commanded " Be ye therefore perfect, even as your father in Heaven who is perfect" We make mistakes, & develop desires and habits that God himself did not instill in us, but through our own right to choose.That's Okay. He doesn't expect perfection. But these habits, these desires, are creators. Creators of what? They create feelings of temporary happiness, that rob our spirits from true happiness, which is living the gospel of Jesus Christ.They create smog,and smoke,That cloud our vision of who we can become, and by what power can help us become that way, ( The Atonement ) . Because " All sin and fall short of the glory of God " , Sin, ( this is a big one ) creates feelings that bring us regret, remorse, guilt, guile, sorrow and despair... Have you felt these feelings? That is why we have the Atonement!!! Jesus Christ, was tempted in all things( but never heeded them ). Through this power you can be enabled to do good and to BE BETTER! The weight of OUR sins caused him so much agony that he bled from every pore! You can never say that no one understands, because the son of God descended below all things! These feelings can ONLY be relieved through baptism done by the priesthood authority. Show more Show less
