Hi I'm Porter

I grew up in Meridian, Idaho. I am Freezing in Minnesota. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I attend Brigham Young University studying for a engineering major. I attended High School near Boise , Idaho where I ran cross country and built robots for a FIRST Robotics team. I am a voracious reader, and am always reading a book. I am generally observant and like to sit back and watch the world go by. I believe life is wonderful and absurd, and should be viewed that way.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because is Christ's Church on the earth. I believe that we must all obtain a personal relationship with our father in heaven and that we must personally decide what is right. The scriptures are a source that we have to personally accept for ourselves to be true. I believe the scriptures are the word of god and have accepted their values and lessons into my heart. The Book of Mormon is the word of god, and salvation can be found in it.

How I live my faith

I am active in the church. I am about to serve a mission to Minnesota and will be there for 2 years. I have served actively in the church. I delve often into the scriptures to find personal lessons for my self. I have a personal relationship with god and I try to listen for him always. I am also a fan of both modern analysis of ancient and modern church organization.

What is the Word of Wisdom that Mormons talk about?

The Word of Wisdom is a health code of sorts that encourages physical exercise and eating. It forbids the use of alcohol, tobacco, and other harmful substances. There are some debates about certain drinks being part of the word of wisdom, such as caffeine and certain teas. I believe that it is up for each individual to decide what is good for him.
