Hi I'm Teancum

I love to imagine and to ask, and i love to answer questions. I love games and Comedy and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm interested in playing games and having fun in life, not getting in trouble but having good clean fun. I enjoy all the things that i have been given by god. My current favorite book in the Holy Bible is Job. I am an Elder now in the Washington Spokane mission. As i study the scriptures i think and ask again and again, "What else can this mean? How is this important to me or to others?" I know that in the Holy Bible and the Book of Mormon that there are answers to any issues in life we have. On this sure rock we can build our lives and families. I have read in isaiah a scripture where the lord gives us our adversity and trials to strengthen and make us better. I know that this is true, that we are put through trials and hardships to make strong what once was weak. It is said that god has given us small things to confound the understanding of the wise and this is definitely one of those situations.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church but at 8 i was given the choice of being baptized or not and i chose baptism to be closer with my parents and with God. Today i have seen much and it gives me a little comfort to learn and read the Book of Mormon as slow as i do learn. I know that by following the example of Jesus Christ We become better people and more perfected. We are all given trials and I know that I could not over come many of these trials without the solid foundation which I have built myself (which is god and his kingdom) upon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through God's and Jesus' example. I read scriptures daily and pray more now on my mission then i have ever done before. I trust he hears my prayers because i am well taken care of. Living through example i am now learning is the simplest way to get closer with god, whether it be through service and just simply praying. Prayer is so simple and amazing for all of us i have to admit. By service and charity towards others we take a vital and important step in becoming closer with christ and what he has taught us to do. We must pray for others, even our enemies, we must think of others because then our hearts are fixed on a higher goal. I love others and try to help when i can, which is a great way to live your faith.

What is faith?

Having faith is having faith in what you've never seen and never really touched physically but you've felt its influence in your life and know it. By acting with faith before you think it is almost always rewarded. I have followed promptings of the spirit and it's always rewarding in one way or another. It may not be something that is seen or heard but it is simply felt and therefore it is real and there for you for a purpose. In Alma we are told that knowledge is NOT faith, and that faith is used to prepare us for and in someways, surpass knowledge completely. People can and do every day disprove knowledge, of science, of theories of myths, but when we have faith we surpass anything anyone can throw at us. Sometimes our faith will be shaken but that is only there to try and stop it. In all reality allow doubts to make your faith grow and strengthen them. Show more Show less

How are the activities of the Mormon missionaries funded?

We go out with our families and our own efforts past funding us. We work and do the lords work at this time while we are on our missions. Since there is no paid ministry in the church it is a blessing for us to do such work, as it is for the people within the church. Show more Show less

The Book of Mormon is a second witness of Christ. In it are teachings from Prophets inspired by God, and their dealings here in America. Show more Show less
