Hi I'm John Pratt Johnson

About Me

I am a husband,father and grandfather.I like to fish, hunt, cut fire wood, wood working and putter in the yard with the garden. Taught elementary school for 33 years, grades 3-5. Worked for the county as Mosquito Abatement director for 28 years and retired in 2012.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe in God the Father and Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost. When I read the Holy Bible and the Book of Mormon I know that they are the word of God and I KNOW that Joseph Smith is the first prophet on this continent to receive this gospel and through my ancestors it was given to me to study and receive my testimony of the truthfulness of the B of M and Joseph Smith. If I know these things through revelation all other things are true.
