Hi I'm John

I'm a 22 year old student who loves sports, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the youngest of five boys to parents who raised us in the LDS faith. Being the youngest of five boys, I absolutely love sports. Because of some medical reasons, I was unable to play sports in High School which was a tough challenge for me because two of my brothers were all state athletes and all of my brothers lettered in at least one sport. I just finished getting an associates degree focused on Finance with a certificate in Accounting and now I'm planning on serving as a Full-Time missionary for the LDS church before I finish working on my Bachelor's Degree.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that I am suppose to be. I might have been raised in this church, but as an adult who lives away from his family, I choose to go to my church meetings on Sunday and any others that I have throughout the week. I choose to say my daily prayers and to read the Bible along with the Book of Mormon. I choose to follow the commandments and any other commandment that comes from my the leaders of this church because I know for myself that they are given to help me have a chance to return to my Father in Heaven and live with him if I live worthy. I am far from perfect, but through the repentance process I know that I can have a chance for true happiness and that is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to do what is right. I fall short of my goal, but I strive to live like the Savior did. I try to never miss saying my daily prayers and being an example for those around me. I don't want anyone to ever question my faith because my actions do not coincide with the teachings of the this church. As of May 2013, I have been serving a two year mission to give service to the people of Long Beach California and to invite everyone I meet to come unto Christ and recieve his restored Gospel.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

We have never worshiped Joseph Smith. We worship God, our Eternal Father and our Savior Jesus Christ. We acknowledge that Joseph Smith was a latter-day prophet and that through his actions, God's church was able to be restored once again on this Earth. Show more Show less
