Chat With a Mormon Online
I was born and raised in Ohio by loving parents. They taught me to love and serve God. They taught me to always to be kind to others. I attended college in Ohio, Arizona, and Utah. I served a mission in Utah. I married a wonderful Arizona girl. Now, I am working on my PhD in plant biology.
Through prayer, I have heard the voice of the Lord in my heart and mind (on a daily basis) that the Book of Momon is the Word of God. And because I love God, I feel a desire to serve him with all my strength. I feel his love as I pray and ponder on his words.
The Book of Mormon allows me to draw my attention to Christ everyday. It focuses my attention on doing Christ-like activities (helping the poor and needy). It also calms my spirit. I actually become cranky when I don't read the Book of Mormon every day. The feeling I have when I read the Book of Mormon is that of Joy! I feel closer to my Savior, Jesus Christ.
I live my faith by trying to be as kind and caring to others. If I can help others feel love and peace, I've been successful. In my local congregation, I serve as an advisor to young men (ages 14-16). I help the boys with scouting and try to teach them about the priesthood.
