Hi I'm Anthony

I grew up in the Southern region of the United States of America. I'm a convert. 2-4-12. Preparing to serve my mission.

About Me

I'm Anthony, and I'm a convert. My story starts out at about the age of seven, living with my mother and my father. My mother was a Baptist and bounced around between the many local Baptist churches in my area. She would always force my sister and I to attend with her. I hated it. I didn't hate church, I hated being forced to go. being forced I never paid any attention to what was taught by the Sunday school teacher. Jump forward a few years and my parents decided it was time to get a divorce. While this was VERY hard on me at the time I now understand that it was truly for the better. From the age of nine to about 13 I went to a Baptist church with a few friends of mine. not going to learn but just to hangout with people mostly. Eventually I just stopped going. At the age of fourteen, after going down a narrow and cold road, after hitting my rock bottom I decided I needed help! I decided Heavenly father was the only one who could truly help me. So on Feb fourth 2012 I took the plunge and was baptized in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It Is now 2016 and I'm about to serve my full time mission

Why I am a Mormon

I'll keep this incredibly simple. I have lived in the dark without the true church before. I have lived a life of evil and darkness. I have told myself that I'm happy. Living as a Mormon truly changed that though. Seeing the power and love of Heavenly Father has lead me to true happiness.

How I live my faith

My branch was extremely small and comprised of mostly older members. Being a young teenager, and one of the three young men there I learned a great deal about sacrament. I was a part of it every Sunday that I was present. while this wasn't ever a problem it taught me truly how important it was that I was there to do my duties. Also being the oldest of the young men I was always looked up to at outing on what to do and where to go. so I had to carefully decide what was right for us to do.
