Hi I'm Wesley Thompson

I live in the state of Utah. Mormon central and I'm Mormon, always have been.

About Me

Oldest of three kids in my family. I was the experiment child and the one that taught my parents the most about patience. I have two younger sisters who are lucky to have me be first. I love to Swim and Ride bikes. Mountain or road biking doesn't matter love them both. During high school I have taken interest in computers, robotics, and space. I love the idea of traveling through this galaxy Heavenly father made for us. Which is why I also take interest in the scriptures, talks and books by authors of those of the LDS faith.

Why I am a Mormon

It's true I have been a Mormon all my life, but it doesn't mean I didn't have doubt. I had to learn for myself. I found out for myself a few ways. As a new teenager I would play sick just to stay home from church. I quickly learned I was missing something. Stress levels were became elevated during the week and I would struggle keeping my mind focused and at peace. Thank goodness for good friends and family for loving me and getting me back to church. The weeks I went to church were better then the weeks without it and I learned to love attending so I could take the sacrament and learn more of the gospel of Jesus. This is also were I learned the importance of the Atonement. Without it there is no purpose for us. I am so thankful for the ability to repent and be forgiven of are sins. Another thing I had to do was build a testimony. There comes a time where you can't ride on other peoples testimonies. Again around the teen years I had to build my testimony myself. It honestly doesn't take much for are father in heaven to give us that feeling of the things that are true. Reading and praying is key and has always help me to find answers to questions and giving me the ability to say I know the Book of Mormon is true, I know what prophets are teach us is from God. The thing is when you have learned for yourself as I have, you notice all the blessing god has given us and by living this gospel you will know that we are sons and daughter of god. I doesn't take me much to be reminded of the love Heavenly father and Jesus has for us. Sincere prayer, baptism's, father's and priesthood blessings, and testimonies of others always bring this feeling of love to me, reminding me that he does love us and want's us to live with him again. Jesus died for us. Jesus was resurrected so that we could one day also be resurrected. Jesus carried out the atonement so that we could all be made prefect and live with are heavenly father again. I know this with all my heart and all my being.

How I live my faith

As of now I live my faith by preparing for a mission. I attend mission prep classes and church meeting during the week. I Also live by faith by helping others around me and I hope to bring others to the true gospel of Jesus Christ.
