Chat With a Mormon Online
I was born and raised in Salt Lake City, UT in an active LDS family. I have one borther. I spent four years on Active Duty as a United States Marine. I attended college and now work full time. I hope to be married in the Temple and raise a family in the Church. I've held various Church callings during my life.
I'm Mormon because I know this is the only church with the full truth. I believe all churches that inspire people to do good have some truth, but only the LDS Church has the full truth. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, and that President Monson is a prophet. I know that following the teachings of this Church is how I can one day return to my Heavenly Father and Jesus, and be with my family for eternity - which I want very much.
We go on missions because the Church has brought great happiness into our lives, and we want to share that happiness with others.
My father baptized me a couple weeks after I turned 8. I was very excited and eager for baptism, and had been looking forward to turning 8 so I could be baptized. When I got to my mother afterwards I said I wanted to do it again. It was a warm, wonderful feeling of complete forgiveness and a chance to start new.
I live my faith... In the way I treat others - I try and treat them as fellow children of Heavenly Father. In the language I use - I try to avoid profanity. In the clothing I wear - I try to dress modestly. In the activities I do, or don't, participate in - I atttend Church and the Temple. I read scriptures, and pray. I don't drink alcohol, tea, or coffee. I don't smoke.
