Hi I'm Johnny

I grew up on a farm in southwest Missouri. I like to draw and paint. I have 11 brothers and sisters. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in southwest Missouri to a family of 12 children. 7 boys and 5 girls. I grew up eating whole wheat everything and drinking unpasturized milk straight from the cow. We worked all day in the garden and then played the rest of the day in the cow field. In highschool I played football basketball and ran track and was first team all conference in each sport. I never pass up an opportunity to eat a big meal. I'd rather draw pictures than take notes, and I'd rather dig post holes than do paper work. I just finished my freshman year at Utah State University. Go Aggies !!!!

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I know that Jesus Christ redeemed mankind from their sins. I know that he came once to the earth to bring to pass his Atonement for all humans that ever walked the earth. I know that in a grove of trees in New York he and God the Eternal Father appeared to a 14 year old boy, Joseph Smith. I know that through revelation and other visions such as this Joseph Smith restored the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the same Gospel that Christ taught when he first came to earth. I know that he translated The Book of Mormon from ancient records of people in the Americas and I know that The Book of Mormon will bring people closer to Christ than any other book. And I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints is Christ's church on the earth today, and it is the only church that has the fullness of the Gospel of Christ. I know this because the Holy Spirit, a member of the God Head, has born witness of it unto me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be a good boy. I think if I can be as Christlike as I can be then I will not only bring myself closer to Him and my Father, but it will bring those around me closer the Them. I try to help others find their way in this world where many have become lost in sin and need a helping hand so they can return the their Heavenly Father's side.
