Hi I'm Romney

I am from Utah. I have always been a Mormon. I will soon be on my mission to Kenya.

About Me

I play the drums. I am a certified EMT. I am preparing to serve in the Kenya Nairobi mission. I go to college. I love to watch movies and listen to music. I also love to snowmobile and jet-ski. I have an older sister, one older brother and three younger brothers.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have been taught the church is true throughout my whole life and have obtained my own confirmation of its truthfulness. I know without a doubt that this is the one and only true church. President Monson is a true prophet of God. Joseph Smith really saw God and Jesus Christ! Joseph Smith also translated the Book of Mormon that testifies of Christ. Through Joseph Smith, Heavenly father restored the true church. I have read the Book of Mormon and I know it is true. And if the Book of Mormon is true, that means that Joseph Smith is a true prophet which means that this church is true which also means that Christ lives! I have been blessed too many times to say that the church is not true. The church is the one true thing that I can rely on without doubt. I love this church and this gospel. It has given me such hope and assurance that I don't have to worry no matter what happens in life. I will always have the gospel to stand by!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church each Sunday and learn of our Savior. I serve in the church by going home teaching with my dad. Occasionally, I give talks in meetings such as youth meetings or large meetings that include the whole ward. I enjoy going to the temple every week. There have been many leadership opportunities in the church whether it's helping organize a large youth activity or a president of a young men's group.

Why are Mormons asked to donate 10% of their income to their Church?

The 10% that we donate is to help further the work of the church. It is a commandment of God. When we obey this commandment, it shows Heavenly Father how much we are willing to obey Him! The Lord will bless you as you obey His commandments! Show more Show less
