Hi I'm Duane

I have moved from place to place. I love my family. I am a missionary.

About Me

I am a fun loving weirdo, who has way to much energy. I've lived in 9 different locations in 5 different states. I attended one semester at BYU-Idaho, and now I am becoming a missionary.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon today because of my father. When I was growing up I felt like I was forced into my religion, and because of that I started to refuse to follow its teachings. I started to swear a lot and I would treat my friends like dirt under my feet. Then something happen. When I was about to turn 14, I was kick out of my mothers house and I went to go live with my father (he is also a member). As my father was welcoming me to his home I stopped him and said "I will not be a Mormon." He then looked at me and said "Okay." Once I was given the choice, I thought about what being a Mormon was all about and I realized that I wanted to be a member.

How I live my faith

The way I am living my faith is becoming a missionary. I want to be able to not only teach others, but to be able to serve them to the best of my ability.

What is Mormonism? OR What do Mormons believe?

Duane
the best way I can explain our basic beliefs is with some of our 13 articles of faith (1-3, 9, 11-13) 1.We believe in God, the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost. 2.We believe that men will be punished for their own sins, and not for Adam’s transgression. 3.We believe that through the Atonement of Christ, all mankind may be saved, by obedience to the laws and ordinances of the Gospel. 9.We believe all that God has revealed, all that He does now reveal, and we believe that He will yet reveal many great and important things pertaining to the Kingdom of God. 11.We claim the privilege of worshiping Almighty God according to the dictates of our own conscience, and allow all men the same privilege, let them worship how, where, or what they may. 12.We believe in being subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and magistrates, in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law. 13.We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men; indeed, we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul-We believe all things, we hope all things, we have endured many things, and hope to be able to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things. Show more Show less
