Hi I'm Patrick

I grew up mostly in Thoreau, New Mexico, United States. I love aviation and writing. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I LOVE aviation, ever since I was eight years old and my Grandma and Great-Aunt sent me books on military aircraft. It's my dream to be a fighter pilot someday. I'm a country boy, I live on a very small three acre farm type thing. I also love to write! I've never published a book yet, I am waiting until after my mission. I am also a geek, I love books, video games and movies. I also love motorcycles.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church, but even though I had this all around me, I didn't understand or use any of it. it was just a thing. But as I went through life, I struggled against a burden that I couldn't handle, I couldn't overcome, not alone. I tried over and over to get past it on my own, and nothing worked, and little by little, i was losing hope. So I finally turned to Christ, and though it took a while to learn to trust and rely on Him completely, I eventually did, I began to learn of Him and to rejoice in Him, and that was just the beginning of the Journey. I found out for myself that what my parents Believed was true,I came to believe in the Sacrifice of Jesus Christ, and that it applied to me personally, that I could be made clean and strengthened through His mercy and grace. I was given strength to start becoming free from my burden. I learned to live. Every day and every minute I learn more of Him now. Sometimes I still feel like I should deal with my problems by myself, but I am blessed to know, that no matter how often we slip up, or try to handle things our selves, Jesus Christ is always there, waiting for us to just turn to Him, and He will always be there. And the minute we turn to Him, He lifts us higher.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through a LOT of prayer and repentance. I mess up, we all do, but I have a knack for not giving up. I try to serve wherever I am, helping people has always been a special thing for me. I love to see there faces light up and be so happy even if it's a small thing like asking if they're Okay. I do my best to follow Christ I am also currently serving a two year mission in the South Carolina Columbia Mission.

How can we stop the spread and influence of pornography?

Patrick
If you really want to stop porn, you can't make it illegal necessarily and you can't force people to stop. So you have to persuade them. Give them a reason to stop, a loving Heavenly Father is the best reason. And be patient, that's one of the biggest things you have over Porn. The only truely effective filter to keep people safe from this plague is the hearts and minds of the people, if we teach them and raise the next generation stronger, than we can halt this in its tracks.
