Hi I'm John

I grew up, and live in Vancouver, Washington. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a divorced male. I enjoy bike riding, basketball, and other outdoor activities. I currently live with my brother. We are working together to begin remodeling our home.

Why I am a Mormon

I became a member in October of 1999. My roommate at that time had a girlfriend who became a member, and had him take the missionary discussions. I walked in on the first discussion. From there, I chose to take the rest of the discussions. During that time I had family that tried to pull me away from joining the church, but I felt that everything I was taught from the missionaries is true, and I needed to test my faith, and join the church. Not long afterwards, I knew the Book of Mormon is true, and this is Christ's true church. I continue to serve in the church today, and I'm happy to do it.

How I live my faith

I'm the only member in my family. I try to be an example to those in my family. I am the Sharing The Gospel Online Specialist in my ward. I also visit other families in our ward to help assist, and uplift them.

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

John
I have found many blessings for myself as I have prayerfully read, and pondered the scriptures. I have learned lessons through scripture that comfort me while going through my trials of life, and help me to get a better understanding of my place in Heavenly Father's plan. As I read, I find how other righteous people delt with trials in their lives. I learn from them, and try to apply the same principles they used in my life to the best of my ability. Each time I prayerfully read, and ponder the scriptures, I find peace, and reassurance in my life. Show more Show less
