Hi I'm Austin Green

I'm Austin, I grew up in Alabama, I'm a convert and I'm a Mormon! I know this church is the true church of Jesus Christ

About Me

I'm Austin, I grew up in Alabama. I love to read! I like being outdoors too, nature it just too awesome! I'm a huge fan of football. I'm a pretty big geek too. I love superheroes and Pokémon. Superman is probably my favorite along with Thor. My favorite Pokemon has to be all the water and grass types! I also like history too. It's my favorite subject, especially the 1800's.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know this Church is true. I prayed about it and when I did I knew this church was right. In the summer of 2011 I met two missionaries. They came to my door and knocked. At first I did not go to the door and they left. But I felt an urge to go out and talk to them, so I did. I tracked them down and found them at my neighbors house. They talked to me about what I believed and asked if they could come back. I told them they could, but when they did I told them to go away. Over the next two years I really struggled with what I believed and stopped believing in God altogether. But I found my faith again after reading the New Testament. I tried finding a church I liked but couldn't. Then I remembered the Book of Mormon the missionaries had given me two years ago. I read 1st and 2nd Nephi and then called the mission office. A few days later I got two wonderful Sister Missionaries teacher me. After the first lesson I was asked to read 3rd Nephi 11-19, where Jesus Christ comes to the Americas. They also asked me to pray. I prayed about the Book of Mormon asking Heavenly Father if it were true and I felt and overwhelming peace and I knew then it was true. I was baptized September 14th and confirmed the 15th. Later my mother took the lessons and she joined after I did. I know this church is true, I know that Joseph Smith was prophet and that Jesus Christ atoned for our sins. I know that we are never truly alone, that our Heavenly Father is always with us no matter what we do because he loves and cares about us more than we could ever imagine and that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I go to Church as much as I can! I love being there! I try to read the scriptures as much as I can. I share the gospel as much as I can and carry a Book of Mormon in backpack just in case someone is ever interested enough to want one.

How do I become a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church)?

You become a member of the LDS church by taking the lessons from the missionaries. They will teach our beliefs and give you an invitation to be baptized. You are usually baptized on a Saturday Show more Show less
