Hi I'm Leif!

I am a child of God and know the Gospel of Jesus Christ is true!

About Me

I preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ in South Florida, and have been serving in Boca Raton for nearly a year, and will complete my mission here! I love music, cheering people up, and enjoying the highlights of life. I like reading the scriptures to help me feel the Spirit and guide me. I strive to constantly read the scriptures, as they bring me closer to God and help me understand, feel and know what to do in my life. I like the scriptures, and two examples of Holy Scriptures are: The Book of Mormon and The Bible.

Why I am a Mormon

I have read The Book of Mormon with an open mind, pondered its message, and prayed to Heavenly Father in the name of Jesus Christ and asked Him if it was true. I received an answer by the Holy Spirit and I felt uplifted, peaceful, gentle, and good. Once I knew for myself The Book of Mormon is true, I discovered that Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer, that we do have Prophets and Apostles in our day who direct us just as prophets and apostles of old did, and the exact same Church and Gospel that Jesus Christ established while He was here upon the earth has been brought back, or re-established to the earth completely again through a prophet in our day.

How I live my faith

I live my Faith by making choices that bring me closer to Jesus Christ. I want to live with Heavenly Father again and the only way is through Jesus Christ. I follow Him and I choose to have faith. I choose faith and to believe and act. I repent of my sins so I can be pure and clean to return to live with Heavenly Father. I partake of the Sacrament and feel its cleansing power. As I do so, I feel the Holy Spirit with me more and more.

Who was Joseph Smith?

Leif!
Joseph Smith was someone who was searching for answers, not knowing which of all the different sects or Churches he should join. He sincerely wanted to know which Church was true and was completely true. He prayed with real intent to find out the answer, having faith or trust in God that he would receive an answer. He prayed to God in the name of Jesus Christ which Church he should join and God gave him an answer. He told Joseph Smith Junior that he would restore, or bring back to its original form, the Gospel teachings of Jesus Christ and that he would lead the Church with the correct authority called the Priesthood, guided by Jesus Christ and God. Joseph also found out he would bring forth an ancient sacred record of scripture of the people of of the Americas. The record he translated into the English language by the Power of God is called The Book of Mormon. I invite you to read and pray to God in the name of Jesus Christ and ask Him if this book is of Him. Show more Show less
