Hi I'm Frank Millington III

I'm an Arizona native who lives in Colorado. I perform with two improv troupes and produce sketch comedy. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Arizona and moved to Colorado in 2009. Since then I've lived from place to place with my single mother. I'm a major geek who loves everything from comics to sci-fi shows, and I'm quite the gamer. Around my junior year I started to indulge the idea of doing something related to acting. Whether it be sitcoms, musicals, and even stand up. It was also around that time that my grandmother passed away, she was my biggest supporter. So after that I transferred to a different high school and took up theatre in her honor. Since then I've graduated, been in several productions and now perform with two different improv troupes as well as produce sketch comedy. I'm also going to college for an associate of arts and hope to be a high school counsellor one day. My passion is shown when helping people.

Why I am a Mormon

So as I've only been a member for a short period of time, I'm primarily going to talk about my road to joining the church. Back in September of 2015 I was outside my apartment one night and a couple of missionaries happen to walk by and give me a card. Three days later I called them back, just out of pure curiosity! And after the first lesson I was still on the fence about the whole thing. This was my first time hearing in depth the actual workings of the church and what it's all about. After a while I brought up one night to my friend that I had been meeting with the missionaries. He is a member himself and has been his whole life, so after an hour long conversation about the church I decided to get a little more serious about my investigation. By November I was attending church full time and participating in everything. I had finally accepted the gospel and Joseph Smith as our prophet and was ready for baptism. My baptism day was amazing, having little support from my family sucked, but I was able to have support from my friend who baptized me and my branch. Ever since then the gospel and the church have made an amazing impact in my life! I feel the holy spirit with me every day and nothing but pure happiness! And I know the church is true and that the gospel is the true gospel of Jesus Christ. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

Having only been a member for a couple of months I haven't had much experience to share. But in my short time a lot has happened. So I was baptized and became a member in December of 2015, and since then I have grown tremendously in my church. I have since been given the calling to serve on the Family Home Evening (FHE) Committee and have been assisting in leading events and activities for my branch. I haven't been assigned to home teaching yet but soon enough I will and I'm very excited for the occasion. And I have been able to teach friends and family about the church as well as total strangers! It's truly amazing watching the difference in people as they learn about and understand the gospel.

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

Frank Millington III
We need to take care of ourselves physically and spiritually. And it's true that one can effect the other. Joseph Smith received a message from Heavenly Father who gave our prophet a list of things that we should not partake in. For these things are damaging to our bodies, which means they are damaging to our spirits and draw us away. Show more Show less

How do I become a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church)?

Frank Millington III
If you are truly interested in becoming a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, then contact your local church. Get ahold of missionaries in your area. Start meeting with the missionaries and learn more about the church as a whole. The more you learn and the more you grow, the better you'll feel. You will feel a sense of peace and comfort while reading and praying, which the missionaries are going to tell you to do a lot. Just take your time with it and move at your own pace. Peace will come and Heavenly Father will be there to help through the process. As well, while meeting with the missionaries, attend church! Get a feel for the people you are planning on surrounding yourself with! Make friends and have a great time. You'll come to find that members are very inviting and always show a warm welcome.
