Hi I'm Joel Roberts

I grew up in Ogden, Utah as a non-Mormon in a Mormon community.

About Me

Through my associations with young LDS people in college, I decided to investigate the church. I joined the church in 1978. Since then I have found a true love for the scriptures. I enjoy reading them daily and have given myself the challenge to read the Bible this year. I'm truly enjoying this insight into all of the scriptures. I've been attending classes about the Doctrine of Covenants and have developed a deep appreciation for them. I testify of the truthfulness of all of the Standard Works, and hope you will take the opportunity to read them too.

Why I am a Mormon

I have a testimony of Joseph Smith, that he restored the true church of Jesus Christ for this dispensation. I know that Thomas S. Monson is a true prophet of God and is the spokesman of God hear in our time. If we will but listen to him and do as he says we will not go wrong.

How I live my faith

I've served as a Home teacher over the years and have developed a special bond with a number of families that I have worked with. As we are preparing for our mission, my one regret is that I will not be here at home doing my home teaching, and serving those I love in the branch. I do realize that the Lord will bless us with new opportunities to share with those we meet while on our mission and that our service there will be rewarding.
