Hi I'm John

I live in the great PNW. I love my family and friends. And I've been stung by a scorpion on 16 different occasions. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I converted to this wonderful gospel and was baptized in January 2014. I am currently a missionary serving in the KWM. I love to watch and play sports such as basketball, golf, soccer and football. I'm always down for a good movie, some of my favorites being Lord of The Rings, Forrest Gump and Nacho Libre. You can always find me listening to music and I play a little bit of it myself too. Everything is always better with friends. I have the best family ever too. I also love my dog, but she died, so that was sad...

Why I am a Mormon

I was never much of a guy for religion. And I often felt alone and lost without any sense of a foundation. Thanks to some admirable member's examples, I saw the happiness that comes with being a Mormon and living a Christ centered life. I've made many mistakes, but from day 1 this gospel and the people in it have changed my life and set me on a better path. The Book of Mormon is true and it is amazing. It helps me to live a better life and it teaches me how to be better person. I am surrounded by loving, and supportive people. I know that my Heavenly Father loves me and wants me to be the best John I can be and that's what makes me happy. I know Christ is there for us always, we just gotta look for Him. The Atonement was performed so we could be cleansed and enabled. I know that the plan is to succeed. I am a Mormon because the gospel heals me, it strengthens me, and it leads me to a better life.

How I live my faith

I believe that living your faith is a daily decision. I make time to study the gospel, and seek to learn of God's will through prayer. I know that by going to church, associating with people on the same path as me, and partaking of the sacrament, I can find true joy. Just as Christ did, I try to help others, and love em too. I've also learned that love is the essence of the gospel and the best way to live the faith is with love as the motive.

What is the Book of Mormon?

John
We believe that Christ came and ministered unto the people of he Middle East. This is documented in the Holy Bible. We also believe that Christ visited the inhabitants of the Ancient Americas and shared His gospel there as well. This interaction was recorded in the Book of Mormon. The Book of Mormon, when used with the Bible, brings us back the fullness of Christ's gospel. I love the Book of Mormon because it helps me to be a better man and teaches me the instructions that Christ gave us to navigate this earthly experience. Most important, the love of God radiates from the Book of Mormon. I know this book brings us answers and can calm the storms of life. Sincerely read it, and your joy will grow :) Show more Show less
