Hi I'm John Cassler

I grew up in Utah and Texas. I am currently serving a mission in the Provo, Utah mission. I am a Mormon!

About Me

I grew up in Utah most of my life, recently I have been living in Texas. I have three brothers, and two sisters. We grew up with wonderful parents who love each of was, and who have made many sacrifices so that we can live as good people. I am currently serving in the Provo, Utah mission. My hobbies include carpentry, playing rock drums, archery, ice hockey, and making movies.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because this is the only church that fully teaches why we are here on this Earth, and what our main goal should be: to live with God forever with our families. I also believe that this is the only church that teaches that men and women are equal under God, and that they together are crucial for God's plan for us to work. I also believe that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, and that he was Christ's tool to build up His church, and restore precious ordinances that are necessary for families to be together forever. I also believe that we have living prophets on the Earth today that receive revelation for what Christ wants us to do in this confusing world. I also believe, like the Bible, that the Book of Mormon is a second witness to the world that Jesus Christ is our Savior, and that only through him can we have salvation. I cannot deny these things because I know in my heart and mind that they are true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be an example of Christ everyday. I try to love those around me, and respect their beliefs. I use my talents to help people, that I don't know personally, realize that there is good in this world. When I was in Texas, I frequently went to Habitat for Humanity and used my knowledge of carpentry to help provide a home for those in need. I use my movie skills to make movies to teach people basic woodworking skills that they can use in their lives. I live my faith by reading the scriptures, both the Holy Bible and Book of Mormon, which is another set of scriptures that testifies that Jesus is the Chirst.
