Hi I'm Charles

I grew up in Utah in the united states of america. I'm LDS or Mormon.

About Me

I'm a very active and outgoing person, my hobbies include, running, working on cars, manual labor, making memories, and working on improving my scholastic career. I'm a very social person and love to talk to people, i've worked fifty sixty hour weeks, so i understand the strains of everyday life on some people. I love scouting and what is has done for me in my life, i have attained my eagle scout and went to the world wide scouting jamboree in 2011.

Why I am a Mormon

I did not take the decision lightly to be a member of this church. When i was of age to make my own decisions, i was inactive for a period of time. losing contact with many religious affiliations i had. I was raised in the LDS faith, so i did not know life without it. As i slowly lost more and more of my touch with the spirit of the lord. Life became very mundane, not much purpose and i began to wonder why i was doing what i was doing. I looked into some other religions, what they believed and Practiced, how they conducted themselves. But in every one there was something missing. One of my friends got me to come back to church, this is when i realized it was the true church of christ, i realized i had taken the spirit that filled me every sunday and the support i had been given for granted. It took losing what i had to realize how much it was. I would implore any people looking into the LDS faith, to give it a chance, open your heart, to feel the same spirit of the lord many of us feel every day. When you're with members in a spiritually welcoming setting.

How I live my faith

I love spending time with people, both of my faith and not of my faith. Just because they are of a different faith does not by any means mean they are not good people. Some of my best friends have been non affiliated or not of my faith. But I always make an effort to show people both in my religious activities and my community ones what the LDS faith practices and believes. Good living is still good living, no matter who you are. One of the best ways is just by loving everyone!

Why don’t Mormons drink coffee, tea, or alcohol? What is the Mormon Church’s law of health and proper diet?

Charles
I know sometimes these things don't make sense. Because they are not prohibited by the FDA or other organizations. But to keep it short, Coffee and tea are huge, massive in modern society. But think about the possible dependence on Coffee, the caffeine, it can ruin your whole day if you don't have that kick in the morning. Do you really want to be that dependant on something for the rest of your life? Coffee is full of other harmful things, that may not affect your health immediately, but over time. Tea, which is not inherently bad, herbal teas and white teas are good for you, but the highly processed black, green, and oolong teas are full of many other chemicals that can be detrimental to your health. This isn't to attack people who drink these, but i can speak first hand that when you do not drink them, it gives you a freedom from the dependance of the substances, eventually improving your whole life! i promise that.
