Hi I'm Austin

I am a son of a farmer, i love the great outdoors, and i am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a young man who loves getting to know people, finding ways to make them laugh, and really building a better relationship with those around me. I grew up on a farm so i am not afraid of a hard days work. I love being outside, and lifestyle that goes with it.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Say Saints because i have read the Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ, and prayed about it. This church is Jesus Christ's true church on the earth today. He himself is at the Head of the Church. He leads and guilds us through prophets in these days just as days of Old. There have been many times in my life when Hard times have struck out of no where and i had to question why me or why my family. But in those times of lowliness i Found My Savior Jesus Christ, by reading and pondering all of the scriptures that he has given us in these days ( the Bible and the Book of Mormon), i have found the answers to all those hard questions.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by helping others. Jesus himself set the example when someone needed help he didn't just go there and help the one who asked but he helped eveyone who crossed his path. I also live my faith by Living the way That God would have me. Everyday in my life i try to find ways to improve myself. its not an easy process being a follower of Christ. there are days when its hard and you get discouraged by things that you do wrong or are getting held back by, but by accepting the Atonement of Christ into my life i know that the days can be better. Currently i am serving as a missionary spreading the Gospel of Christ as he Commanded the twelve apostles to in Matthew chapter 28 verse 19. I live my faith by helping other Come Closer to Christ, and accepting his Gospel.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Austin
No we do not Worship Joseph Smith. We only worship God our Eternal Father and his Son Jesus Christ. joseph Smith is a prophet just like those in the old Testament: Adam, Moses, And Abraham. He restored Christ's Church on the earth in these days because after Christ and his apostles were killed/ exiled The Priesthood Authority of God was lost. But God being our loving Heavenly Father reached out to us again in these days so that he can help us come back to him. Show more Show less

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Austin
A testimony is something that Is to help bring forth the truth. like in a court case when you are brought to the stand they ask you for your Testimony or your version of the truth. Now when Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Days Saints share their testimonies. they share what they have come to know is true. and the reason they know it is true is because they have received a witness by the spirit of God that it is true.

What is the Word of Wisdom that Mormons talk about?

Austin
The Word of Wisdom is a health code that was taught to the early members of the Church by Joseph Smith. The Word of Wisdom teaches that we should avoid things like Tobacco Alcohol Coffee, Tea, and Illegal Drugs. But its not just a list of restrictions it also teaches about what is good for us to eat. and it promises us that as we live the word of wisdom we will have health and strength that we will run and not be weary and shall walk and not faint.
