Hi I'm John Coombs

I love to run cross country and track. I love anything out doors. I am a Mormon!

About Me

I am going to go to college and work on becoming a physical therapist. I love to run long distance. I also love to help others. Right now I am serving a mission for the Church in the California Rancho Cucamonga Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I get so much strength from everyone. Everyone is there to cheer everyone on their way. It gives direction in my life so I know how to have a happy life. By giving me direction I know where and what I should be doing. Best of all there is so much support that if you need help to get through any trial someone is always there for you. The last reason why I am a Mormon is because when I am living the Gospel I know that I am following Christ. I know that I have been the happiest is when I have been living the Gospel. I want to follow Christ because He is the way.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by participating in everything. From participating in church to going to activities. I have noticed I really like to get and know others. Ways that I do this is by doing home teaching. I find it really fun to talk to other members of the church and find out if I can help them anyway I can. I also enjoy helping anyone that I can even if they are not members. I also live my faith by doing my best to stay busy with good things. An example that helps me do this is by relating it to running long distance in track. I do this because I love to run. For me to do my best in track I need to do a pace that I can do for the entire 3200 meters. I choose a pace that I know that by the end I could not keep that pace for another lap. So in life I tell my self run hard turn left because that is all you got to do in track. By running hard and turning left I mean just doing things that Heavenly Father wants me to from the time I wake up till I go to bed. These good things are anywhere from scripture study,church, homework, running, service activities, spending time with my family. There are so many good things I can focus on that helps me live my faith.

In whom should we have faith?

John Coombs
We need to have faith in Jesus Christ. He is the way and light for us to return to live with God again. We have been told that it is more likely for a mother to forget her child then for Christ to forget us. He will never leave us. He is always wanting to be by our side to help guide us back to God. He is always there even when we don't want Him because He is waiting at the door waiting for us to open it so He can be part of our lives. Over all the things of this world do not last forever. But through Christ we can make it back to live with Heavenly Father again for eternity. Show more Show less
