Hi I'm Dakota

I have 6 brothers and sisters. I adore animation, drawing, storytelling and so on. I love God and Jesus Christ. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

A little about me. I have 6 brothers and sisters. I love them all, i wouldn't be here today without them. Seriously. My parents are more than incredible. They have shown me the way and they have definitely played the biggest role in my life. I am who I am today because of them and, above all, because of God. I love music and ANYTHING creative be it story telling, drawing, sculpting, animating, painting; I love them all! Some of my hobbies, as you may have guessed, are telling/writing stories, buying and playing with legos or any such toy, and anything that falls under the catagory of imagination. I absolutely love video games BUT not just any video games. The ones of the past are my love! Mario, Legend of Zelda, Pikmin; If it came out on the gamecube or the Nintendo 64, I'll most likely love it. I love God and Jesus Christ and i know they live. They have given me all my passion and a reason to live! I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saint is TRUE! I will soon be going on a mission to serve God and The Lord, Jesus Christ. I will do all he needs me to do! The kingdom of God or nothing.

Why I am a Mormon

The reason I am a Mormon is because i know it's true. I have felt the Holy Ghost burn inside me and testify that this is the only true church upon the face of the earth. I know that everything of this church is true. I know that The Book of Mormon is true and is another testament of Jesus Christ. It testifies that God and Jesus Christ live. I know that Joseph Smith saw God and Jesus Christ and that he was a tool in Gods hands to restore His church upon the face of the earth. I know that President Thomas S. Monson is a true prophet of God here on the earth today and by listening to his words, which are God's words for he is one of God's mouthpieces, we will draw closer to our Heavenly Father. I know that God Lives and is the only true God of this whole earth and universe. I know that Jesus Christ is God's only begotten son and that He saved every single one of us. Not only that but He loves each and everyone of us dearly. I am forever grateful for His atoning sacrifice that He has done for me. I love Him forever. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

How i live my faith is by keeping the commandments, praying night and day, reading The Book of Mormon every morning, serving others and doing what God and Jesus Christ desire of me. There are many other ways i also live my faith, one of which is being an example to others and making the choice of serving a mission. I pray that i will always please my God, who is Heavenly Father.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Dakota
We do not. Jesus said, "...Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve." We know Joseph Smith to be the prophet of the restoration of the church. God chose him to be a prophet in these last days, just like how He chose different men of the past to be prophets such as Moses and Noah. We know God is the same yesterday, today and forever. We only worship the true and living God, our Heavenly Father; prophets are one source for leading us to do so. Show more Show less
