Hi I'm John Forsyth

I grew up in England. Raised in Washington. Serving a mission in Oaxaca, Mexico and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am your average person. I have lived most of my life in one area. I went to the same schools as all my neighbors. I play sports like Ultimate Frisbee, basketball and run track and cross country. Though my favorite is playing Ultimate. I love running as well and have participated in four Rangnars. I love music. Listening to Vocal Point or Peter Hollens as they create amazing music. Or whether is it playing my trombone. I am heading off to college.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this church is true. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that Joseph Smith is a prophet of God. In the Book of Mormon there is a challenge that is given "And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost." This is found in Moroni chapter 10. I have tried this and I have discovered for myself that this is true.

How I live my faith

I try to be the best person I can be. I try to be as honest with everybody that I meet. I have standards and will not lower them for any reason. I participate in my church my actively going every week. I am willing to share my talents with those around me, especially as I recently gave a talk in front of the entire congregation. I am dedicated to my faith as I am heading out on a mission for two years to bring the joy of the gospel to others.
