Hi I'm Noah Bogart

I'm from KC. I'm a student at the University of Arkansas. I leave in July to serve as a missionary in Brazil! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a Freshman at the University of Arkansas and I am preparing to serve a full time mission. I recently got called to Brazil and will leave in the summer! I am originally from Kansas City, Missouri. I played linebacker for my high school football team and I am a huge fan of both the Chiefs and the Arkansas Razorbacks. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, exercising, and eating.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the Church is true! Every day when I read the Book of Mormon and other standard works my heart is filled with the love Jesus has for me. I feel the spirit as I keep the commandments, as I pray, and when I am in need of comfort. The spirit has assured me of the truthfulness of this church many times! I can not and will not turn my back on the testimony the spirit has instilled within me. To do so would be to turn my back on God's love for me, Christ's love for me, and innumerable blessings. I truly have seen Gods hand in my life, I can testify that the church can bring so much happiness into all of our lives. If you have not yet experienced this joy I testify that you can! It all starts with prayer, reading your scriptures, and going to church. You will always be welcome.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying my best to be an example to those around me. Especially my family and friends. I do my best to refrain from vulgarity, keep the commandments, and show my love towards others. I live my faith by centering my life on Christ, I try to be like him, and learn from him. I try my best to heed the words of the prophets and make it a point to read the Book of Mormon every day. I try to contribute to my ward, family home evening group, and institute classes by sharing my testimony when i feel prompted and engaging in class discussions. I try to be reverent and really listen to what's said in church. I live my faith by remembering that God knows me personally and knows what he wants me to be, and then acting in the way I know he wants me to act.
