Hi I'm Joe

I am an outdoor enthusiast with a passion for archery elk hunting.

About Me

I am from Montana. I am a convert to the church and am so grateful for this gospel that has blessed my life so much. To me there is no greater feeling than helping others, and specifically, helping them understand and then receive the blessings that come through the gospel of Jesus Christ. If I can always do that, i will feel that my life is successful and that I am fulfilling my purpose.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe that God speaks today to chosen prophets, seers, and revelator, and that He has a work for us to do that I can participate in to build His kingdom on Earth. Truth is revealed in this generation the same way it has always been revealed throughout time. Through those in authority to lead and guide the children of Christ back to Him. I am a Mormon because I know what that authority is, and how it is now again on Earth. I am a Mormon because I know that true happiness comes from following the counsel and the commandments of God. I am a Mormon because it is true, all of it... The Bible, the Book of Mormon, the priesthood power, the atonement and resurrection of Christ. It is all true, and it gives me the foundation that I need to build my life closer in line with the will of the Lord.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by understanding that I am imperfect and that I will always need to improve myself, and using that understanding to focus my efforts on becoming the person that I know I can be, and the person that I know I am expected to become. The beauty of the gospel of Jesus Christ is that we can always be better, do more, and live closer in harmony with the commandments of God. When I strive to be better, and act upon the faith that I have that through Jesus Christ I can be, I can be an example to others and lead them in the way they should go, just like so many have led and directed me.

Who was Joseph Smith?

Joe
Joseph Smith was a man who was called by God to be a prophet and given Authority, the same authority that was given to previous prophets such as Abraham, Noah, the apostles that Christ himself ordained while he was on the Earth and so many more. It was through this power that the ordinances of salvation could be administered, and it is once again through this power that they can be. The Lord gave Joseph Smith this power so that His children(God's), all of us, could be blessed once again with the ability to follow all of the commandments and the teachings of God and receive the blessings that are in store when we live His gospel. Through this power, The Book of Mormon was translated from an ancient record which Joseph Smith was led to, a record that contains writings from the inhabitants of the ancient American continents. Through this record we can know that Christ also appeared to the people here. He taught them His gospel and they wrote it down. the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ and contains, as does the Bible, the fullness of the gospel. The power restored to the Earth is still here, a prophet is on the Earth once again, and we still have access to all the blessings that are available through following Christ and keeping His commandments.
