Hi I'm Troy Gibson

I grew up in Texas USA. I was homeschooled and work as a registered nurse and love my family. I'm a Mormon and happy!

About Me

I am working, going to college, serving in church and raising a family. I know the struggles of trying to balance everything and provide for my family. I enjoy good conversations on our Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, the Scriptures, (especially how the previous four topics have changed my life) medicine, science fiction, video games, movies, saving money, flying airplanes, politics, and military.

Why I am a Mormon

John 7:17 says: If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself. (KJV) This verse explains well why I have remained a member of the church. I have followed the doctrine taught by this church and found it all to be of God. That same soft whispering of the spirit, that peace that God sends that most Christians can relate to, is what fills my heart as I follow the teachings of these modern day prophets. This includes following what is also taught in the Bible, Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants. This really is Christ's church. I have asked people if they lived in the time of Christ which church would they join. They immediately that they would join the one that Christ founded. Well this is that church. Want to know for yourself? Follow the counsel Christ gave in John 7:17 (see above).

How I live my faith

I enjoy regular scripture reading in the Bible and Book of Mormon every day as well as prayer. I have the privilege to serve as the youth leader for the young men ages 12-18. This means that get the chance to know and serve many young men learning to make good choices and follow god in this troubled world. I really enjoy the chance to participate with them, especially in the activities associated with the Troop in Boy Scouts of America. I also help in the organization of youth activities and dances.
