Hi I'm Noah Woodruff

I'm a runner. I'm an Arizonan. I'm a missionary. I want to do anything I can to help serve and help others, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I love to run- cross country, track and marathons. I am an eagle scout. I love camping, hiking, and anything adventurous. I have a blended family with eight children. I am excited to pursue a college education and continue to help others in anyway that I can just as the Savior did when I return from my mission from the Provo MTC Referral Center in Utah. I truly live by the scripture Joshua 1:9 "Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest" and I know that God will be with us whenever we have courage and strength.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I find joy living the teachings of Jesus Christ and going through life doing my best to Become as He is. Something I have learned is that no matter what trials or difficulties we run into in our lives if we will make the gospel the number one priority in our lives everything else will fall into place. There was a time on my mission in which I was having a particularly hard time as I was originally to Nashville,TN called but due to health issues and difficulties was told I would be returning home. I doubted God and doubted if He was there and this is what lead me to Humble myself in prayer and ask God and He confirmed that truth to me. I am a Mormon today and serve and help people all over the world in the Provo MTC Referral Center Mission to bear testimony that we have a loving Heavenly Father who knows each one of us individually and cares for us and I am very grateful I was later reassigned and am able to teach people all over the world and am able to bear my testimony of our Savior Jesus Christ and how through the Gospel of Jesus Christ we can Become As He Is.

How I live my faith

I live my faith each and every day by doing the simple things that we are always counseled to do such as praying each morning and night, reading in the scriptures every day, and continually going to church. I do these things to continue to maintain and grow the seed of faith like we are counseled in Alma 32 to Nourish it with much care so that my testimony and faith can make root. I am so grateful for the guidance my Heavenly Father gives me on how I can continue to live my Faith even during the hard and difficult trials and sorrows of life and it is because of the joy and light of the gospel.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Noah Woodruff
Our faith in Jesus Christ will grow by doing the small and simple things, living each of the commandments and through tests and trials. As well we can just pray and study every day as it is a way we can receive personal revelation and come closer to God. Show more Show less
