Hi I'm Ruben Johnson

I've grown up in a few different places. I love basketball, many varieties of music and I, am a Mormon!

About Me

My choices have taken me many places across the country over the past number of years. I've experienced many things and have learned many things. I've developed a strong compassion for people. I really enjoy playing basketball as well as playing and writing music.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon, because I feel very strongly in my heart and my mind that the teachings are that of the absolute truth upon the earth. The family love of the people is very real. I have searched for myself to know of the truth and I have discovered amazing and glorious things pertaining to the true work of God on the earth. Families can be together forever, and through my faith and dedication I can receive this blessing. All can receive the blessings of Heavenly Father through honest searching and faithful dedication to the truth.

How I live my faith

I try to be the best ME I can be on a daily basis. I believe in the service of my fellow man, and I try to serve others at every opportunity I can. I am not a perfect person. No one is, but everyone has a choice to do the best they can. I attend church weekly, and try to apply its teachings in my daily life. It brings me undescribable joy to know that my Heavenly Father loves me, and has a plan for my happiness, as well as ALL of his children.

What is the priesthood?

Ruben Johnson
I can testify of the truth of the power of the priesthood. It is real and truly is the authority to work, act, and speak in the name God the Father. He loves us and truly has a hand in our daily lives. By the power of the priesthood, many glorious blessings and truths have been made known unto me personally and I promise with all my heart that it is real. Those who live worthily and have received the authority of the priesthood, can give blessings for the sick and afflicted. Also along with other ordinances, blessings of comfort can be offered. These of which I have personally received from my father, and can again testify of the authority exercised, as well as the very real results of such things. Show more Show less
