Hi I'm Justin

I grew up in Idaho. I enjoy sports and learning. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am Justin Johnson, and I like to learn. I am studying Russian, and I love learning different facts and about history. I am a soon-to-be college student planning to study bioinformatics.

Why I am a Mormon

Me, my parents, and even my grandparents grew up in the church. But before them my family struggled in Sweden. They were introduced to the gospel by a pair of wonderful missionaries and immediately felt the light that their message held. My Great grandfather and his family joined the church and were greatly persecuted, to the point where he was forced out of Sweden. He moved to Utah in America and helped spread his newfound light there. I am ever grateful for what he has done. But what he has done is only part of the battle. I am grateful that he presented this opportunity for me to grow up in this faith. But I have continued in this faith because of the peace and joy it brings. I have been spiritually and mentally enlightened in many aspects, and I know that that only could of happened through divine guidance. I know without a doubt that God lives and loves each one of His children. I have seen this gospel bless others, and bring light and joy to their lives. The gospel also blesses families and brings them closer together, and I have definatley discovered that. I don't know everything. I am not perfect. But I have faith that as I remain worthy, and give life my all, and enjoy and live every second, then I will be blessed with strength and knowledge. And this is true for any one of God's children.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to constantly progress, and seeking divine guidance through prayer. I am serving as a full time missionary to share those beliefs that I cherish. I strive to serve others I see, and do my best to be the best example that I can possibly be for others. I try to be uplifting and encouraging, and strive to better my relationships with my fellow men. I make prayer a familiar thing in my life, and it is such a strength for me to have that connection with my Heavenly Father. I have a firm testimony of this gospel and I am so excited for the opportunity to share it abroad!

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is Another Testament of Jesus Christ. It is a piece of scripture comparable to the bible that contains the fullness of the gospel. It is the record of Lehi and his family, who left Jerusalem by commandment of the Lord, and were lead to the American continent. In the America's God called prophets to guide and instruct the people in His doctrine. The Book of Mormon is a collection of their history and teachings, testifies of the teachings of Jesus Christ, and contains stories and examples to help guide us on the right path today. I have a testimony of its truthfulness of this book. "By their fruits shall ye know them", this book has brought forth light, joy, happiness, and unity. And not only that, but through reading, studying, pondering, and then praying about it; I have been able to receive a strong witness of it. And I know that this opportunity is available to all who want to sincerely know for themselves the divinity of this book. Show more Show less
