Hi I'm adebiyi ademola festus

I grew up in Lagos. am a Mormon

About Me

I love life, just being able to live everyday and learn something new, is reason enough to live. I love to play video games, though finding the right opportunities are hard, , thinking how they would think, getting inside their shoes. I adore animated movies and have a hobby of researching things about animation. I want to learn how to be a loving husband and father, as in being able to do many things, dance, draw, each talent brings new opportunities to do things in life. I look towards the LDS Church as a guide for my life. As Jesus Christ as an example I am able to become the person I want to be, which is a individual that is full of charity and good will, a person that can help anyone that needs help.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a mormon because, I'm recognized myself as a child of God. This belief, this church, God's Church, is God's Church because through the churches organization, beliefs and so on, I believe that God has shown his never ending love for us by giving us the restored gospel, he is the same god yesterday, today, and forever. Like a science experiment I've tested to see if the promises in the Book of Mormon and Bible are true, and through out my life I've found the principles taught bring forth no bad fruit, that the seed this Church gives is a true seed (read Alma 32 in the Book of Mormon to find out more!) I've felt the guidance of the holy ghost through out my life, and he has always led me down better paths. That is why I'm a mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by acting upon the faith I have in God. I believe, and then I act, to show that I really mean it, when I say "God, I will do what you think I should do to better be who my potential self is". I read my scriptures, I pray for guidance. Love without an action, is not a strong love, I want to be strong, the Lord is my strength and my song, and I am strong with him, I am weak as is the world, without him. I go to Church every sunday and partake of the sacrament to renew my covenants with God. A covenant is a promise between you and God, both sides must keep the promise, or else, the covenant is broken, thus broken opportunity. I think about how I can become more Christ like, and apply the principles I learn to my life, though sometimes it is hard to be honest, it is essential to improvement. Being on a mission for Christ, I am now his representative, and I should do nothing besides what he would have me do. Giving my name to the Lord is a very important concept to me, giving my name to God, which is really the only thing we do really own, is showing trust in God, and I show my love for God by living my faith.
