Hi I'm Wesley Monahan

Born and raised in Gilbert, AZ. I love making music. My passion for the gospel has brought me peace. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Music, Entrepreneurship, Volleyball, and Quality Time. That's me in a nutshell.

Why I am a Mormon

Because I love my family and friends so much that I want to live to see the promise that I will one day live with them in the Heavens for eternity.

How I live my faith

I currently oversee that affairs of the companionships who visit the families in my church, aiding in their spiritual and temporal welfare. I will stand up for my morals and try harder everyday to practice what I preach and live the teachings of Christ. Most importantly I believe in service and empathy toward my fellow man.

Can you tell me about Mormon customs: how you dress for church, what holidays you celebrate, etc.?

Wesley Monahan
I served a mission for my church, because I love my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ very much. I wanted to serve them and their children here on earth in return for all they had blessed me with. On my mission people would ask me all the time about Mormon customs. Some thought our way of life was strict. I heard people often say they thought all Mormons wore a suit and tie every day religiously, just because that was the attire that missionaries wore to perform their work. As I began to discredit these myths, I noticed that some people had only become closed to this church because of the rumors they had heard about our traditions. Occasionally, I would meet people in search for answers to questions about God and even fulfill desires to be baptized into a church, but because they assumed we would force them and restrict them to certain customs, they would choose to reject our message. Those who are a part of the Mormon church AKA The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, know that pretty much no two members are alike. Mormons are all different people, living very unique lives, all striving for the same goal; to one day be worthy to meet their Maker and rejoice as others and loved ones succeed in that same goal. I strive to live this life with fullest passion and joy and I appreciate the ways others find life's joys. I hope no one is ever afraid to ask me how I live my life and why I live it the way I do.
