Hi I'm John Morris

I'm a Family Lover! I'm a Loving Son, and a Loving Brother! I'm a Athletic Workout Fanatic! I'm also a Geek! And I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I've spent most my early life in the Water Training for Swimming! I was blessed to be a Swim Captain my Junior and Senior years of High School. I loved that time Learning and Growing with my Swim Team! My favorite races were the 50yd free style, the 100 yd Freestyle, the 200 yd Freestyle, and the 100yd Breaststroke, although, I usually ended up doing all the races haha. I love to run, bike, lift weights, and work out with my Family and Friends! Anything that involves adventure moments with my Family ;) These Memories are some of the Greatest Blessing in my life! I was a Fish Cutter for a Summer in Ketchikan Alaska to help Save Money for my Mission Mission! I was Called to Serve in South Carolina Columbia! "The SCCM" :) I'm going to Study for Chiropractic and Physical Therapy at UVU, and am Prayerfully Excited to see where things start lining into place with the Branch I'll take there! I love to read, and watch "Adventure" movies, like "The Hobbit", and "The Lord of the Rings trilogy, etc. (I love the Deep Symbolism of The Lord of the Rings.) I'm also a Board and Video game Geek ;) Stuff that helps Uplift and Motivate one to become better and more like our Savior! I Love the Gospel of Jesus Christ! I Loved the Experiences that helped Strengthened my Testimony and Faith in Jesus Christ, I'm Grateful for His Light, that enabled me to remain strong against the Trails and Storms that comes my way. I Deeply Love the Scriptures for this Reason, and the Tool it is in my Life!

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in a Family that has been very active in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, my Father and Mother raised us to always Trust in the Savior, and Look to Him for Help and Guidance in all our Struggles, from School, to Athletics, everything! As a Family, we have many Shortcomings and Quicks as we all do :) But we've experienced Miracles by Looking to the Savior, we have seen the Lord make our Weak things, become Strong unto us. (The Book of Mormon, Ether 12:27) I have had many experiences in my life that helped my Faith grow and become Strong by looking to my Savior through facing my Trials and Adversities. I Personally learned how important it is to be Balanced in Life through the Gospel. I Learned how the Savior was the perfect example of that Balance, the Median of Christ. I came to know of the power of the Atonement of our Savior Jesus Christ, and that our Father in Heaven is very aware of me, and that He loves me, and that He Loves each one of us Personally! This helped me Learn of the Divine Role of the Holy Ghost, and His Role of Testifying the Path of Truth and Direction we can know to take in our Lives, and Love of God in my Life! The Lord has always been their to help me and guide me to be the best I can be. He has helped me and Continues to help me as I look toward Him and strive to be like Him. Learning from my Mistakes and finding Patience with myself is my Goal! As I have been striving to view myself the way that the Lord would view me, this has allowed me to view and treat others as our Savior, Jesus Christ would treat them! I love reading the Book of Mormon for this very Reason! It shows me how to Learn to Apply these Truths! I know that it is the word of God, written by His servants, and that we can draw closer to our Father by studying it. I'm so grateful for the Gospel of Jesus Christ and His Love in my Life! I'm Grateful for His Spirit, that Testifies of these things, in Response to our Prayers as Promised by God!

How I live my faith

I'm part of the Adventures in a Family of 9! :) I Love my Family Dearly, and the Moments I have with them. I Strive to Find ways to always Serve them! As I have come to see how Special the Role Service plays in our Lives, I've found myself reflecting on the Example the Savior Jesus Christ set in a Service for us. I have been Grateful for his Church that he has established on the Earth. I'm Grateful for the Callings I am able to Devote and Give all I can to Him! I Love my Savior, and His Gospel, and I Love being able to help Uplift and Share it with everyone that I can in the way and timing that is best for each of us! I know the Lord Loves each one of us, and Prepares ways for us to Learn and Grow in the Best way for each individual. I Love Serving Others, and Finding ways to help someone feel Gods Love for them! I have come to know through experience that through Service to others, Losing ourselves for his our Savior, Enables me to find myself and become more like Him! I'm so grateful for His Sacrifice which made this Possible!

What is faith?

John Morris
Faith is one of the Key Elements for us to Learn and Grow here in our Life on Earth. We are Required to show Faith for the Experience it gives us. Through our Faith in Jesus Christ, we can Overcome any Trail and any Affliction that comes our Way, it grants us with the Knowledge and Ability to show Patience and Love and Christs own Attributes. To have an attitude of Gratitude even amongst the Worst of times. That is what I've seen the Role of Faith Play in my Life. I've seen how important our Hope in the Savior is. Hope Enables us to show a Faith, and to become more like him. It's showing Patience and Putting effort to Remain Joyful and Trusting in the Savior, and our Heavenly Fathers Timing for all things. I'm so Grateful for the Role Faith Plays in our Lives, and how if we Center ourselves on the Savior, Faith is a Enabling, real Power, which can cause things to happen, in which under "Normal World" Circumstances, would be impossible! In the Bible, I Love the Teachings and Testimony of Paul! The Epistle of Paul to the Hebrews in (Hebrews Chapter 11) he describes the Substance of Faith, and the Role it Plays in our Lives! This is powerfully explained Further by a Prophet Moroni in the Book of Mormon, (it's in the Book of Ether, and it's Chapter 12) in this Chapter, he Describes how a Prophet before him named Ether Taught about Faith, and Moroni explains how he Personally discovers why the Lord uses Faith to Help us Learn in Grow from our Weaknesses!

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

John Morris
The Opportunity to Share the Gospel as a Missionary is very Special! They Devote themselves completely to the Service to others to bring them the Knowledge of God's Plan of Happiness for them! It is a Labor of Pure Christlike Love, Missionary's strive to Learn and Apply in their Lives during their Mission and After how to be Charitably and Love. This allows the Missionary to Grow in a Way that is worth more than we can understand. The Love Missionaries have for those they Teach and Serve comes through the Love of Christ! Only this Love from Christ can create such a Fast forming Love the Missionaries have for everyone despite anything done or said to them! They Love so Much because of Christ! Show more Show less
