Hi I'm Griffin

I was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada. I will be serving a mission in Alabama. I am Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy art; drawing and ceramics and painting. I love to read on my spare time. But if I could choose to do anything I would spend time with my family, especially my nieces and nephews.

Why I am a Mormon

My father and his family converted to this church while he was young and my mother converted while she was 19, no one else in her family joined this church. I was lucky to be born in the church. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is an amazing church, and it is the true church. Through the church I was able to learn so much about life after death and that we do indeed live after we die. We live with our Father in Heaven and Jesus Christ and our family. I know this to be true because of the feeling I get when death is spoken of and I remember this. I have had people in my family die, so knowing this comforts me. I know this church is true through the spirit prompting me it is so.

How I live my faith

I mainly help in the nursery, I am able to help look after children under the age of 3 play and help teach who Jesus Christ is, the main thing I do is give them my undivided attention and love them to bits. I also go visiting teaching with another woman just to talk with other woman in the church to let them know we miss them and are there if they need anything.

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

God, Heavenly Father, has a great plan for your happiness. When you realize that God has a plan for you it becomes easier to understand why you are on this earth. God wants all of His children to progress and become like Him. This time on Earth gives you time to grow and progress like; get a physical body, exercise agency and learn how to choose between good and bad, gain experience that will help you be like Him, and form family relationships that may become eternal. By following Heavenly Father's plan you can return to live with Him someday with your loved ones like all of His children. Show more Show less
