Hi I'm John Hardy

I grew up in Richland Washington (the State). I attend Brigham Young University. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am just a normal college student attending Brigham Young University, I love to play sports like football, basketball and spike ball. I absolutely love to go skydiving and do water activities like tubing, and wake boarding. I am the oldest of five children and have grown up as a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I have chosen to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because I have taken the challenge given in the Book of Mormon to read it and pray to know if it is true and have received an answer through the Holy Ghost. In the book of Matthew in the New Testament it says that you can know them by their fruits, and everything in this Church has brought good fruit strengthening my testimony on the truthfulness of this church. I know that Joseph Smith was the prophet that restored this Church to the Earth again and that we still have prophets today that give us revelation to protect us and bring us closer to our heavenly father. I know that Christ atoned for our sins and is always there for us, that only through the atonement can we be saved and return to live with our Heavenly Father again. I know the Book of Mormon speaks truth and is another testament of Jesus Christ, outlining his gospel so that we can study and receive personal revelation when we read it. God will answer our prayers if we just ask and I know that he loves us so much that we cant even comprehend it.

How I live my faith

I will be serving a mission in winter 2017 and am excited to serve the people in my mission and share the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. I am the assistant executive secretary in my ward meaning I help the leaders of our ward like the bishop and his counselors with setting up interviews and scheduling. I am also a home teacher meaning I visit and help take care of members in my ward. I love serving in my ward and know that this is the full gospel of Jesus Christ restored to the Earth again.

What is the Book of Mormon?

John Hardy
The Book of Mormon is another testament that Jesus Christ lived and walked the Earth and that he performed the atonement is that we can return to live with our Heavenly Father again someday. It gives a record of the ancient inhabitants of the Americas and their conversions, wars and struggles that they went through and overcame. Show more Show less

Who is the Mormon prophet today?

John Hardy
The current prophet and president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is Thomas S. Monson. Along with him he has counselors and a group of twelve others called apostles that help teach and spread the word of God around the world. They are all called of God through revelation, just like in the days of Christ. Show more Show less
