Hi I'm Ren Holtry

I grew up in Northern Utah. I love all things nerdy. I am serving a mission in Denver, Colorado. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy reading, playing video games, and watching T.V.. I graduated high school and completed one year of college before leaving on a mission.

Why I am a Mormon

My dad was raised in the church and my mom joined when she was a teenager. I grew up in the church and gained a testimony of what I was taught.

How I live my faith

I attend church every week and do my best to live the gospel in my daily life. I often attend weekly activities with the young mens group.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Ren Holtry
The Book of Mormon is another witness that Jesus Christ really lived, that He was and is God’s Son. It contains the writings of ancient prophets. One of these, Lehi, lived in Jerusalem around 600 B.C. God commanded Lehi to lead a small group of people to the American continent. There they became a great civilization. God continued to call prophets among these people. The Book of Mormon is a collection of the writings of their prophets and record keepers. It is named after Mormon, one of the last of these ancient prophets. These prophets knew about Heavenly Father’s plan for His children and the mission of Jesus Christ. They recorded that Christ appeared, after His Resurrection, to the people in America, taught them His gospel, and formed His Church among them. The book contains the teachings of Jesus Christ, testifying of His Atonement and His love. It supports and verifies the Bible. Show more Show less
