Hi I'm Casey J.

From Chicago, am now a grandfather in VA, whose children live in CA, AZ and TX, where I often visit. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am occupied doing my geneology, working and traveling to visit my children and grandchildren.

Why I am a Mormon

I first came in contact with the LDS at the Salt Lake visitors center. I was traveling through the west and was curious about the building with the tall spires, or temple as I discovered. I was most impressed by the story of Christ visiting the Americas. I oftened wondered how God could only reveal himself to one small group of people in the mid-east and ignore the remainder of the worlds population. I have come to know that the LDS church also has contemporary prophets and matches and fulfills Biblical references in a manner that no other church on this earth does.

How I live my faith

I do not currently have a church calling but try to volunteer whenever someone needs help in our church. Not having any official duties leaves me more time to attend the temple and do geneology.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Casey J.
No, I and hundreds of other Mormons went to New York to help clean out peoples homes after hurricane Sandy devasted the area. I've also seen non-Mormons or part Mormon families receive assistance from the Bishops storehouse. Show more Show less

Is it true that Jesus appeared in North America after his crucifixion and resurrection according to the Book of Mormon?

Casey J.
Yes, and why not? Of all the billions of people spread across the face of the earth, why would a loving Creator only concern Himself with a group of people in Israel. If you thoughtfully read the Book of Mormon and pray and ask Heavenly Father, you can find that God has always been concerned with all of His children in all parts of the earth and has made His plan of salvation available throughout this world.
