Hi I'm Reed Dudley

Born and raised in Utah. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the youngest of 4 children. My life has always involved a lot of soccer, and always will. I enjoy music and like to make my own occasionally.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the faith but that doesnt always mean that it's something I've always been 100% sure of. I went through times of ups and downs in my life and then I came to grips about the truthfulness of it - My father died when I was 14 and I struggled emotionally for years. In the end, the only thing that was able to bring me out of the state of hopelessness was the church. I always knew that families were forever, but once I started to believe it, I started to have a great deal of hope and happiness. My family is truly special to me and I know that my life after death wouldnt be the same without them all. No happiness is as deep or as rich as the happiness I can gain from the Gospel.

How I live my faith

Just try to follow the example of others and be the kind of kid that my family would be proud of. I participate in the church activities.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

This is one of the reasons I am where I am today. It's great to know that my earthly father is still alive spiritually and that he can be together with my mother after she passes onto the next life. And it is incredible for me as well to be sealed together with them so that we may all be a family once again. I am so grateful for this and I know that we are able to be together forever. I know that because I can feel him around me and feel his spirit. I'm so grateful for this and this concept alone was able to keep me near to the church and near to God. Show more Show less
