Hi I'm John

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a husband, father of 4, and grandfather of 4.

Why I am a Mormon

I am so grateful for the Gospel of Jesus Christ in it's fullness found in His Church with all the blessings that accompany membership. I am a member because I know for myself through the whisperings of the Holy Ghost that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ live today and love us as they have loved all people throughout all time. They have given us prophets and apostles, the Book of Mormon, Bible, Doctrine and Covenants, Pearl of Great Price, and continuing revelation to teach us of our purpose on earth and how to live peaceful, happy, and productive lives. My greatest joy, my deepest peace, and true charity comes from living like the Savior did to the best of my mortal ability.

How I live my faith

My first and most important roles are husband, father, and grandfather. I try to live the gospel of Jesus Christ by serving my wife, children, and grandchildren and showing them courtesy, respect, and love as the Savior taught. I also currently serve a group of my peers as the High Priest Group Leader. I get the opportunity to visit and help many families and widows in the ward and am able to call on the brethren in our group to assist with many of the needs of those families and widows. It is fantastic to see members serve one another as the Savior did. I home teach several great families in the ward and have the opportunity to help them when they are in need. Home teaching is the way we care for one another in our local Church groups by visiting, teaching, and assisting any way we can. My greatest desire is to do what Heaven Father wants me to do.

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Women and men are partners in this mortal sojourn. Neither above or better than the other. Each plays a crucial role in the family which is the most important role they will have in this life. Women have been given a special gift from God to assist them in teaching and loving children which makes them especially qualified to nurture and teach their children in the home.

How are the activities of the Mormon missionaries funded?

My son just returned from a 2 year mission in Frankfurt Germany. He earned most of the money to pay for everything before he left. We contributed some to make up the difference. Missionaries go out at their own expense with the help of family and other local Church members. Show more Show less
