Hi I'm John Millard

I was born in Mesa Arizona, I have 4 siblings, I love Ultimate Frisbee, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I love to play games! Computer games, card games, board games, and games of Ultimate Frisbee. I also like to learn. I'm a self taught at beat boxing and fixing computers. I enjoy being spontaneous like going out of my way to meet new people or playing sports I've rarely played. I sing nonstop! When I'm happy or sad i still have a song on my lips. In high school I made the regional choir twice and even sang in the schools top show choir. I am going to serve a mission in Lima East Peru and after that pursue an engineering degree at ASU.

Why I am a Mormon

I've felt the spirit of the lord testify over and over again with a burning in my heart each time! I've prayed I've read the scriptures and i know God is happy with my decisions. When I sin I can feel the spirit abandon me and I do everything i can to get it back! The lord has blessed me so many times and helped me see that despite trial he is standing by me. I know the church is true and that God want us to be happy. He's sent prophets and apostles to us in this day. He has blessed us with the power and authority to use his priesthood. Without God I'd be lost and I would not be able have accomplished what I've already achieved. If you don't believe me just ask God with a sincere heart and he will have to answer you!

How I live my faith

I have always been one of the only boys in my ward at church. I still had lots of young women to hang out with and managed to bring friends along on camp outs and service projects. I have a lot of LDS friends but my closest friends are not Mormon. We don't often talk about religion or politics but we still respect each other I hope I have set a good example for them and opened the door for future missionary opportunities. I often have to ask my friends to not invite me to events where standards are not observed or I ask them to raise their standards. In many cases I've lost friends but I consider myself outgoing enough to make new friends who will respect my decision to put God first.
