Hi I'm John

I've been married to Sandra for 44 years. I grew up in England just outside Liverpool but we moved to Ireland in 2013.

About Me

I am an active member of the church, and enjoy spending time with family and friends. I have several hobbies I write stories some fiction some factual including short stories. I sing lower bass in a male voice choir, I play guitar including a couple of the shadows classics. Since retiring

Why I am a Mormon

My wife and I joined the church after meeting the Missionaries and clearly feeling the spirit when they taught us about Jesus Christ and his Atoning Sacrifice. They also explained about the prophet Joseph Smith and his role in the restoring of the Lord's church to prepare the way for the Saviour's return in glory, We joined the church in about 1976 in Runcorn, we met in a disused Victorian primary school with no heating. We eventually got some pews from an old chapel that was demolished, on Testimony Sundays we couldn't get out of seats to get to the rostrum so members stood and bore their testimonies where they were seated,

How I live my faith

I serve in the local church leadership, we travel about 100 miles each Sunday to church. I help to organise activities, like dances and socials. I try to live the gospel and become more like my Saviour Jesus Christ. I'm also working on my family tree and I'm back to the early eighteen hundreds on some lines. Attending the Temple is the most rewarding and uplifting thing I can do, I come back feeling recharged and refreshed.

What is the Book of Mormon?

John
The Book of Mormon is a powerful and compelling Witness of our Saviour the Lord Jesus Christ. It Carries within it the promise that if you will sincerely read and ponder this book, the Holy Ghost will bear testimony to your soul of its truthfulness. This experience can be life changing, it certainly was for me. It proved to me that the Church of Jesus of Latterday Saints is in truth the church of Jesus Christ here upon the earth. He leads and directs his church today just as he did when he was upon the earth in person ministering to those who loved and served Him Show more Show less
