Hi I'm Spencer

I'm a Mormon. I love Engineering. I love sharing the Gospel.

About Me

My name is Spencer. I grew up in the great state of Virginia. I am currently a college student. I love engineering. I currently work as a student intern for my school building 3D models of buildings on the campus with a program called Revit. I'm also going this summer to work for Cessna. The greatest thing I have ever done is share the Gospel. I feel my purpose is to bring others to Jesus Christ through Faith in Him and His atonement, Repentance, Baptism, recieving the gift of the Holy Ghost and Enduring to the End. I love this work. "Shall we not go on in so great a cause?" - Joseph Smith.

Why I am a Mormon

I count myself very blessed to have been born into the Gospel of Jesus Christ. But that is not why I'm a Mormon. That is not why anyone should be anything. I am a Mormon because more than once in my life I decided I needed to know what was right regardless of what I was born into. I am a Mormon because I've spent countless hours on my knees through the years asking and re-asking and checking and double checking to make sure that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the true church on the Earth, established by God and Jesus Christ themselves. One of the biggest things that I have come to realize lately is that this is church is not someones best guess at what the Bible says, it was not created by people who went to school and came out saying this is what I think. Truely this Church is establish upon the principle of Revelation, that being God and Jesus Christ appearing to Joseph Smith and calling him to be a prophet all the way to the Holy Ghost burning within you to tell you the truth. This truely is Christ's Kingdom on the earth today. "no unhollowed hand can stop the work from progressing... the truth of God will go forth boldly, nobly, and independent, till it has penetrated every continent, visited every clime, swept every country, and sounded in every ear, till the purposes of God shall be accomplished, and the Great Jehovah shall say the work is done" - Jospeh Smith. I am a part of the work that is progressing and you can be too.

How I live my faith

I live my faith 24/7. Every moment of every day goes to moving the LORD's Kingdom forward. I try to give as much of myself as possible to the Lord and his work

What is the priesthood?

Spencer
Priesthood is what we call the power and authority to use the power of God. Or in other words when we have God's permission to use his power. Think of Moses, he opened the red sea, but Moses being a simple mortal being could not have done that had he not had the permission to use God's power. That authority is given when someone who already has it places their hands on your head and gives it to you. The power comes from your own personal righteousness. Both are necessary. With the Martyrdom of the Apostles that Christ left behind the Priesthood was lost. Then it was again restored to Joseph Smith when Peter, James, and John again came and gave it. Show more Show less
