Hi I'm Phil

I'm a runner. I'm a good ole Georgia boy. I'm a huge Atlanta Falcon's fan. I'm a college student, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love being unique! While in high school I ran for fun (who does that?!). I love the outdoors, and if I could go backpacking everyday I would. And don't even get me started on the NFL! When I'm not studying for school you can find me studying random facts about professional football.

Why I am a Mormon

We are at a time when we need Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ more than ever, and all we have to do is believe in them. I know that when I am in the darkest storm that my Savior will take my hand and guide me through. All we have to do is have faith. Just knowing that my Savior loves me is the thing that helps me through the day. I am a Mormon because I know that my Savior lives!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing the best I can in whatever situation I'm put in. I live my faith by helping out the 11 year old Boy Scouts, and by setting an example to them. I live my faith by serving whoever is in need. I live my faith by going to church every Sunday, and going to church activities even if it isn't convenient. I know that doing those things brings happiness.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Phil
I know this applies to my parents and many others, but don't our parents want what is best for us? They want us to be incredibly happy, and they are willing to do that as long as we are willing and ask them. It is the same with Heavenly Father. He wants us to be happy, and wants what is best for us! We can know of the truth by praying about it. We have to do our part though. We must study for ourselves. Read the Book of Mormon because it is the Word of God. After we read it, then we can know that it is true, and that Jesus is the Christ. Show more Show less

Why was a Restoration of the Gospel needed? Haven’t we always had the Bible?

Phil
The Bible is such an important piece of our salvation, but it is not the only piece. We have now been given an additional testament of Jesus Christ called the Book of Mormon! It testifies along side the Bible in order to have a fullness of the Gospel. The Restoration of the Gospel was needed because now we have a prophet of God! He holds the priesthood, and has the ability to speak with God and lead His church. We could not receive full happiness without the Restoration. Show more Show less
