Hi I'm TJ Stokes

"I grew up in U.S. I love to play sports and the outdoors. I am a member of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints."

About Me

Well I am a country boy who loves sports and loves the outdoors! I am getting ready to serve a LDS mission. I do a lot of hunting and fishing! My favorite sports are football and wrestling! I like to go on vacation to Alaska in the summer to fish! I can't wait to serve my mission!

Why I am a Mormon

Well i am a member of the LDS church because i love it! Yes i was born into it. But the LDS church is amazing it gives you so many comforts. It is promised to us that if we are worthy that we can live with are families for ever even after death! If we are not worthy we are able to use whats called repentance and we can be forgiven of our sins and be happy again. I continue to follow the gospel because i love it and it makes me feel warm and appreciated! I would like to bear my testimony that i know this church is true i know that Thomas S. Monson is a prophet called of God and that he leads and guides the church today. I know that Joseph Smith restored the gospel! I know that we can repent of our sins and be forgiven! I know that we can live with our families forever through the gospel! I know that we can pray to Heavenly Father when ever and he will answer our prayers! I know that all the young men out there of the right age should serve a mission! I am really excited to serve my mission and I can't wait to bring people unto our Heavenly Father! I know all this to be true and I say this in the name of Jesus Christ amen!

How I live my faith

Well since i am getting ready to go on a mission i don't have a call right now! I participate in church activities such as church basketball. I go home teaching to two families! We go and talk and check on them and make sure things are going well and then teach them a short lesson about the gospel! I haven't really taught the youth to much. I did have an opportunity to teach the youth once and it was great!

What is faith?

TJ Stokes
Faith is believing in something that you can't see! When ever you go to plant something it starts with a seed! You don't know what that seed is going to turn into! But you usually have faith that the seed is going to turn into a nice flower or corn stalk or something! I have faith in God that he will answer my prayers! I have a lot of faith in many things!
