Hi I'm Pearce

I've moved all around the world, lived in 4 countries on 2 continents. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a three sport athlete. I play American Football, Rugby, and Lacrosse. I honestly couldn't say which I like the most, they're all such an important part of my life. I also love academics and learning. I'm big on math and science, and plan on studying computer science at university.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know that it is the right thing to do. I have prayed about it personally and have found a personal relationship with my savior Jesus Christ. I see the relationship that people of other faiths have with him and I feel that it doesn't line up with what I feel. He is my best friend. He's the person who I can share absolutely anything with because I know he will love and support me unconditionally. I keep his commandments because I know he's looking out for me. I know that because I'm encouraged to ask. If I ever have a doubt or a question, I'm taught to ask for myself. How many other religions actively encourage people to seek a knowledge for themselves?

How I live my faith

I am in the youth program, so that involves a lot of different activities. For example this week we are going to be making truffles for Mother's Day. This summer we're planning a kayaking trip. We also have thoughtful discussions and lessons each Sunday. The lessons are taught by the youth themselves so we can strengthen each other in the gospel. I also find that home teaching is an inspired calling. Meeting with members of our ward each month helps us to build a bond with other on an individual level. People who I otherwise would never have met have become friends who I genuinely care about.

Are Mormons Christians?

Pearce
Yes. Mormons are absolutely Christian. The first article of faith is "We believe in God the eternal father, in his son Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost." It cannot get any more direct than that. When we are baptized we agree to take upon us the name of Christ. This means that we try to live as he would and always be a representative for him. Show more Show less
