Hi I'm JD

I have been a Mormon all my life, but at some time you must find our for yourself if it is true. I did through prayer.

About Me

I am a father of 6 children and 23 grandchildren. I am a college graduate in business. I loving working with people and in helping them and their business grow. You don't have to be dishonest to be successful, and it is a great joy to see others succeed in business and in their personal life.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Church and attended each sunday with my parents and family. Most of my friends were members of the Church, but at sometime you have to find out for yourself if the Church is true. For me that took study, fasting, and prayer when I was 20 before I had a testimony of Jesus Christ and his sacrifice in my behalf. He died on the cross not only for me but for all who would believe in his name and live the Gospel that he taught.

How I live my faith

I have had the privilege of serving as a Bishop 3 different times. I truly believe that you are called to positions for a purpose as I can define those in each calling. I love the association with the members; it is like being a part of a very large family -- exactly what we are, all part of God's family. We need to look out for one another, help those in need and care for everyone.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

JD
No. Since the Church was organized the church has help people across the globe. Joseph Smith taught that we are "to fee the hungry, to clothe the naked, to provide for the widow,to dry the tear of the orphan, to comfort the afflicted, whether in this church, or in any other, or in no church at all." The Church is one of the first organizations to be there when ever a disaster strikes. In the recent Oklahoma disaster members and missionaries were some the the first on the scene to help those in need. Show more Show less

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

JD
We first of all must want it to grow and then if you are obedient to God's commandments, study his word and have a desire to believe in Christ, faith will grow inside of you. Show more Show less
