Hi I'm Judd Fellows

I've fortunately grown up in the church. I'm active, physically and spiritually. I have Type one Diabetes. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I'm a Type 1 diabetic, diagnosed at 16. I'm the oldest, and a brother to 3 cute little sisters: Claire, Lucy and Sophie I'm an athletic and love boating, swimming, shooting hoops, snowboarding, mountain biking, ice skating, frisby, volleyball, racketball, ping-pong, pickle ball, watching movies, playing guitar, hiking, cliff jumping, zip lining, traveling and dating ladies! I've worked on a ropes course, as an optometrist assistant, for a painting company, mowed lawns, worked on a farm and for a tree nursery. I respect all religions and beliefs and love to learn more about peoples beliefs and why they believe what they do. I love teaching people of truths, what Mormons truly believe. I love expounding on the teaching of Jesus Christ and helping others build their faith. Overall I enjoy helping people find better direction and happiness in their lives which is always happier through a Loving God. I graduated at Layton high school and am now on a mission, serving in Tempe, Arizona.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I've grown up in the church, both of my parents being very active in the church, I had to know this faith is what God truly wanted for me. I was a young boy living off of my parents testimony but as I got older I developed my own beliefs and my own faith in the church. I started to really understand more about the LDS church and about other churches and beliefs at age 16. I began asking myself, and others about questions that didn't make sense to me. Questions like "Why was Joseph Smith suddenly revealed so much by several visitations from angels? Including Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father?" but then I'd have a contridicting question like "But why would Joseph Smith go through so much life suffering if all of his teachings weren't true?" To find out for sure the simple answer is read the Book of Mormon. It's either all true or it isn't and by reading the Book of Mormon with real intent and a pure heart, you can recieve that answer. I have read the Book of Mormon. In the course of such gained a confirmation that this is where God himself wants me to be, in this religion, teaching others of Christ and bringing them into his fold. I don't have all the answers but have complete clarity of thought and LOVE to answer anyone's questions about the church. I love that my concerns have been clarified as I have faithful read the scriptures and asked God, all you have to do is pray and ask!! I also know with a surety that we have a Heavenly Father watching over us and caring for us. I know that he answers prayers and can communicate with us. He knows our wants, needs, struggles, and wants us to return back to him after this life. I know we have a life after this one and will be able to see our family and live with them eternally. I know you can pray to Heavenly Father to know these thing for yourself, and I say these things in the name of Jesus's Christ amen.

How I live my faith

Have been called by God to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. My full time calling for the next two years is to be a Missionary. As a missionary I invite people to learn more of Jesus Christ and build a better relationship with him. I also try to provide service in the community and help all whom I come across. Prior to this I've worked with the young men in the church serving with them, doing service for others, furthering our scripture knowledge, staying active and building each others testimony.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Judd Fellows
A testimony is simply your belief, it's your faith and witness of spiritual things that are true. Everyone has a certain degree of a testimony whether in this faith or not. A testimony comes from the heart. Show more Show less

Who is the Mormon prophet today?

Judd Fellows
The prophet Thomas S. Monson speaks powerfully. He speaks with a spirit that I don't feel in normal circumstances. It was actually through listening to the prophet, his talks and speeches that helped me to know that this religion was truly from God. As the Bible said "by their fruits ye shall know them" and president Monson has certainly done wonderful works, you can know it by listening to him yourself! Show more Show less

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Judd Fellows
They are usually fun, loving and spiritual, young men! They talk about Jesus Christ and try to help all build their faith and knowledge of Him, where ever their understanding or belief is at. Show more Show less

Why do Mormons believe in the Bible?

Judd Fellows
The Bible is a miracle! It's a source that we are privileged to learn of Christ's earthly ministry. It helps millions strengthen their belief in Christ. It's full of learning and teachings that are pure and up lifting. I'm sure it was even more full of spiritual matters before parts were added, taken away, and tainted with. Show more Show less
