Hi I'm Justin

I'm a German American, I'm passionate about helping others, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi there! As mentioned previously, my name is Justin! I'm a proud Oregonian that's living in Arizona and learning to love our famous dry heat! I was baptized on July 12th, 2014 and was confirmed the day after, into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I have a great affection for my faith, and I love learning more about not only my faith, but the faiths of others around the world. I also love hiking, bicycling, church events, reading the Bible and Book of Mormon, and being with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, because I always wondered "Why?" about nearly everything in the universe. I wanted to know how things happen, or who did it, and why we are even here. What's the purpose of human life? When I stumbled upon the mormon.org webpage, these questions were answered! Whenever I had a question about how a certain doctrine or commandment came into play, there would be scriptural references to explain everything. For instance, I wondered why Mormons don't drink coffee or alcohol, and I found scriptures to explain exactly why.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing the best I can, each and every day, to live the gospel of Jesus Christ in my everyday activities. I like to help those less fortunate than I am in whatever way possible, and have volunteered at pet shelters, homeless shelters, and food kitchens in the past. I really enjoy working with physically and mentally handicapped individuals, and learning from them more about the blessings we receive in this life. I also live my faith through regular scripture readings, church attendance, and adhering to the commandments and guidelines I agreed to and made a covenant when I was baptized.

Does The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints endorse political parties?

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints does not endorse political parties. We believe that each and every person has "agency", or free will, to make their own choices in the way that they see fit. Our church does not endorse nor sponsor any political party, nor do they push us to vote a certain way, but rather with our conscience, which is why you will find a wide spectrum of beliefs in any given congregation.
