Hi I'm Allen

I was raised a member of the LDS church. I enjoyed the scouting and service I was able to do.

About Me

I enjoy bowling, camping, music, movies, and games. I am single with no kids. I enjoy kids and look forward to the day when I get married and have children of my own. I am working in the IT field at the moment.

Why I am a Mormon

I have received many witnesses in my life that prove to me that our Heavenly Father and older brother Jesus Christ are real. I have had many times where I felt alone or unsure of things but as I have prayed and put faith and action to the principals of the Gospel I have made it through those trials. I am not perfect by any means, Not one person on this earth is (Except for the Savior). I make mistakes and have trials just like every one else but through the Atonement of Jesus Christ I (And you) can make it through anything.

How I live my faith

I know that I make and will continue to make mistakes in my life but I know that I may be forgiven of these offenses through repentance.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Allen
I am constantly looking for ways to serve/assist those around me. I don't care if they are LDS or not. Jesus taught that we are to love our neighbors as our self not other members as our self. Show more Show less

Where did Mormonism and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints begin?

Allen
A youth was confused by all the other churches that were out there wanted to know which one he should join. He was reading in the bible and came across James 1:5 which says: If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God that giveth to all men liberally and upbraideth not and it shall be given to him..... (left the scripture reference in case I miss quoted). Joseph Smith went and prayed and asked the Lord which church was his true church. Our Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ came to Joseph and told him that his church had not been restored since the deaths of the apostles of Jesus Christ. He was told that the church of Jesus Christ would be restored though Joseph. Joseph Smith was also told to translate an ancient record that the Lord prophets kept here on this continent. Mormon, one of the Prophets in that record translated, is who The book of mormon was named after. Others nicknamed the members of the Church of Jesus Christ of later day Saints as Mormons due to the Book of Mormon. So now most people use the name Mormon Show more Show less
