Hi I'm Collin

I grew up in utah. I love helping others to the best of my ability. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to be outside in the wilderness. I like being in the mountains and feeling the mountain air and just really feeling at one with all of God's creations. I really enjoy drinking milk. I go through about 4 gallons in a week. Im planning on going to college at USU or Utah State University.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it is true and its where i need to be. If you study the scriptures you will find that in the New Testament, Jesus Christ had a church on this earth. After his prophets and apostles were slain the church with proper authority no longer existed. Through Joseph Smith that same church that Christ taught the people about is now with us today. If you study everything that the Church that Christ was in practiced and taught you will find that it is the same with the LDS church. We teach and live as Christ did and we practice the laws, commandments, and ordinances that Christ did. We are not perfect and although we strive to be we are not. This does not make us Hippocrates only people that are not perfect like everybody else. I know this Church is true and i live this gospel in this Church because God has told me it is true and i want to obey God as best as i can with exactness. When you live righteously in God's eyes he blesses you, and i felt his blessings in my life. There are no words to describe it but when you come in contact with the Church and start becoming a part of it through consistent prayer and scripture study you too will find the blessings of which i have spoken. I wouldn't trade what i have in this Gospel for all the money in the world. God has blessed me with this and has helped shape me into the person I am and i am forever in his debt. God loves me and you so much, more than we could ever know. At times we may feel alone but i promise you that we are never alone and God is always watching over us and is aware of our needs and wants. God hears and answers our prayers. Joseph Smith is a true prophet of God and did restore Christ's church to exactness. I hope the spirit will touch your heart to learn that things i have wrote are true and that through them God may teach you to help you learn what you need to do. I leave these things with you in the name of Jesus Christ Amen.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being the best example of Jesus Christ i can be. Although I am not perfect at it and i make mistakes and sin, I am doing my best to live what i know to be true. I study the scriptures or the word of God for at least an hour everyday so that i can become closer to him and feel him with me. I attend the House of the Lord or the temple as often as time permits, and i also attend church each Sunday.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Collin
You can like i have come to know that Mormonism is true through daily and consistent prayer, and study of the scriptures. It will not be easy because God needs to know and trust you that when he does give you the answer you will act upon it and not push it away. I do promise you this that it is worth it to know and find out whether this church is true or not. Show more Show less
