Hi I'm Porter

I'm a Californian. I'm excited about life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have always had an interest in who i really am, where i came from and where I am going. I was very blessed to grow up learning the answers to these fundamental questions. I know that I am a child of God. I know that I lived with him before I came here, and I know that if I live correctly, I can live with Him again. As I have progressed and grown, I have been able to make these answers a basic part of who I am.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always had the Gospel in my life, and for many years I leaned heavily on my parents, who know for themselves that it is true. I came to the conclusion, however, that I needed to know for myself, so I prayed and I felt that it is true. So I will act on my feeling that it is true.

How I live my faith

I have been very invloved in the Boy Scouts of America, and have had many leadership positions with groups of youth my age. Through these experiences i have learned many different skills. I do my best to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ each day. I often make mistakes, and fall, but I do my best to repent, get back up, and try again. The Savior loves us, and he doesn't want us to give up.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

The only way that we can know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true, is to study it out, and pray to our Heavenly Father to know whether or not it is true. Truth comes from the Holy Ghost, " and by the power of the Holy Ghost, ye may know the truth of all things." Moroni 10:5 Show more Show less
