Hi I'm Johnny Meacham

I was born in Salt Lake City and grew up in England.

About Me

I am 20 years old and currently serving my mission in the England Leeds mission and I am loving every moment of it! It can be hard but it's worth it to see how this glorious message we share not only helps us grow as members of the church but to see how when others also apply these teachings to their lives how much more joyful and alive they feel. I can and do play the guitar, I mostly play the acoustic as I feel it has the most beautiful and calming sound. The style I usually play is folk and sub-genres of that. I like to sing also, not particularly good at it but still enjoy it. Music is a huge part of my life. I collect comic books and graphic novels so you could say I'm a bit of a nerd. Along with the nerdiness I love Star Wars, Batman, Lord of The Rings, Magic The Gathering, and reading; mostly fiction but I'll give everything a shot.

Why I am a Mormon

There are many reasons as to why I am a Mormon but I'd say it's down to the simple truth and beauty of the teachings and principles of Jesus Christ that we accept and apply to our lives, and the fact that if we fall short there is a loving and caring way that we can get up and continue on in this odyssey that is our lives, and the best part is that as we do this is process, that everyone can know of and use, we are drawing closer to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by fulfilling my duties as a priesthood holder such as: preparing and blessing the sacrament; passing the sacrament; doing my visiting home teaching; read the scriptures and pray daily so maintain the spiritual nourishment that we all need. As well as these priesthood duties I am also serving a full time mission. One way I also like to live my faith is having a Christ-like attribute and working on that.

Who was Joseph Smith?

Johnny Meacham
Joseph Smith was a young man who at the age 14, amongst all the religious excitement in the United States in 1820, had the same question that many of us do nowadays "Which is the one direction I should take?" or more directly "Which church should I join?". So as directed in James 1:5 he prayed to God to ask this question and as he did so God and His Son Jesus Christ appeared to him and told him not to join any church as Christ's church needed to restored back to the Earth after being removed, and that he would be the one to do so and would be ordained a prophet just like Moses, Abraham and others from biblical times.
