Hi I'm Whit Haddock

I am from Heber City, Utah. I am half korean and love to fiddle in my bluegrass band. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I love anything about music! I play the piano, violin, guitar, and just about anything that needs to be played. I am currently a student at Brigham Young University, but I will be deferring my enrollment in college for 18 months to serve a full-time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I'm especially excited because I have been called to serve the people in Cambodia!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a mormon because I love the teachings of the gospel. I am a better person and choose goodness and right because of the truths I learn each day in reading the Book of Mormon. I want to share it with everyone I pass, because this gospel truly is the real reason for abundant joy in my life. The teachings and beliefs in the Mormon church keep me on a path to better myself and be a light to those around me. I choose to be a light and share goodness. I know this gospel is true, but don't take my word for it. The best part of the true gospel is that if you desire to know the truth, you can find out for yourself. If you sincerely ask in faith, an answer will be confirmed in your heart. True conversion doesn't happen by accepting what others say is the truth, it is by knowing the truth for yourself. I love this gospel. I know we have a loving Heavenly Father who knows each one of us individually and hears our prayers. Though our lives may have trials, He will never give us anything we cannot accomplish. He has our best welfare at heart and wants us to reach out for him. I know Jesus Christ lived on earth, atoned for our sins, and was resurrected that we may live again. HE LIVES. He also loves us, and wants us to follow his example of kindness and love. I know that there is a plan for us on this earth. Our purpose on Earth is to learn from our experiences and grow to eventually return to live with God. We are God's literal children. He provided a way for us to be reunited with our families and loved ones for eternity. There is life after death. Our loved ones who pass on before us are waiting for us. They are not lost after death. No. Far from it. We will see them again. The gospel is true. I invite you to find out for yourself. This is my testimony in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by sharing my testimony of the gospel through music. I love to play my instruments in church. I feel the power of the spirit that is brought by beautiful heart-felt hymns. Because music is a universal language, I know it influences many people to feel something special, no matter their background or language.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Whit Haddock
To have a testimony is to know with confidence that something is true. It is given to any individual by the Holy Ghost, who confirms to them that what they are learning is the truth. Many times, the sharing of testimonies can strengthen not only your own testimony, but also the testimonies of those around you. A testimony is a spiritual witness. It may begin small and grow bit by bit as more knowledge is acquired. A Mormon's testimony may be founded upon the knowledge of God, Jesus Christ, the Atonement, and the living prophet. The restoration of the church and principles of the gospel may also be included in the foundation of a testimony. Show more Show less
