Hi I'm Elder Holbrook Furniss

Well Hello! I'm a Missionary, a Jokester, an Aspiring Professional Kickball player, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Do you know that feeling, when you're on the Basketball court, and everything clicks? And you just start sinking those three's like nothing? Yeah me neither! I'm not very good at Basketball, but God loves me anyways :) My claim to fame happened in 5th grade, when I was a first round draft pick for the annual kickball tournament for my Elementary school...sooo I'm basically banking on that for my retirement. Just kidding! what I'm really interested in, is joining the National Guard and becoming a pharmacist. I love my country! I'm an avid Sasquatch Believer, and Yeti's. But not the Loch Ness Monster, gross. Right now, I'm serving a Mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Pennsylvania Pittsburgh Mission! It's hard, but I wouldn't trade it for anything! I recently started into the art of the Sculpey (Adult Play-Doh) I find that it relaxes me after a long stressful day. There's something about creating and shaping the clay that calms me. It helps me remember my Savior. Because He is shaping all of us. He is the master Sculpter. It brings me peace to know that He is helping me become a beautiful creation, even though I might just look like and feel like a useless lump of clay right now. I know He has a blueprint for me! I'm a self proclaimed sculpter, I'm a Patriot, I Believe in Sasquatch, I'm gonna make it big as a Professional Kickball Player, I'm a Missionary, I'm a Christian, And I'm a Mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

This is Christ's Church. I know it. One time I prayed and asked my Heavenly Father if this was the true church. I was fully prepared to leave this Church if it wasn't true. All I knew, is that I wanted to be a follower of Christ. Well, I prayed. And I know that this is The True Church. I know it from the depths of my soul. I know this is true.

How I live my faith

I believe in a Church of Action. There should be more to being a Christian than three hours on Sunday. I live my faith by Trying to be like Jesus. Do I come even close? No. Does He care? NO! His love brings me through anything. I have absolute faith and knowledge that He lives, and that He loves me. Nothing will ever change that love. Or my Knowledge and faith of Him.

Who chooses the Mormon prophet?

Elder Holbrook Furniss
This is Christ's Church, so wouldn't it make sense that he would choose who his prophet would be? This is done through a process through Revelation. Revelation is whenever God or his Son Jesus Christ Comminicate with us. Show more Show less
