Hi I'm Hyram

I am from a small town in Nevada. I am about to serve a two year mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to go out into the backyard and shoot my bow. It is a good way to blow off some steam in a busy school year. I just graduated and am about to go up to school.

Why I am a Mormon

I knew the gospel in my head way before I ever felt it in my heart. It just makes sense to me. It took a while for what I knew to enter my heart. It trickled down over many years, but now I know exactly who I am and where I come from. The biggest help in my life was the Book of Mormon. I have read it dozens of times, and every time I come to know more fully that it is the word of God. I have felt His Spirit promise to me that it is the truth, that it was translated by Joseph Smith through the power of God.

How I live my faith

I just graduated so I just moved from my family ward to the singles branch. I will be getting a new calling soon. I am a home teacher and visit a few other families in my ward. I also go help them out when they need it. I actually just got a calling to work in an LDS Temple.

Who chooses the Mormon prophet?

The prophet is succeeded by the senior Apostle. Each Apostle is chosen by the power of the Spirit. There have been sixteen prophets in the modern Church. Show more Show less
