Chat With a Mormon Online
I was raised in Southern California, and have lived here my whole life. I went on a Mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to Taiwan. I loved teaching the people the gospel there in Mandarin. I continue to be an example of the gospel as I raise my daughter Maylee, and as I live with my wife Meghan. I like playing the guitar, playing soccer, programming in C# and ASP.Net. I go to law school and one day hope to be a lawyer.
I am a Mormon because my parents raised me well and taught me the principles of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I continue to be a Mormon because I believe for myself that this Church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, is the true kingdom of God and Christ on the earth. It is a kingdom that was formed before the earth was made, and will exist on the earth forever onward. It is a kingdom of peace, where Christ reigns.
The Holy Ghost has helped me to think noble and positive thoughts throughout my life. Without the Holy Ghost, it is easy to become discouraged, or to focus on the negative aspects of life, family relationships, employment, school, or other life situations. But with the spirit as our guide, we are blessed in our efforts. We can be blessed in school work or employment. In my own life, I have been able to get great grades in high school and at college, often with less than ideal study patterns, because I was blessed what to study. Most often, the spirit helps me to think of noble things. I have often felt its comforting effect as I study and ponder the scriptures. It makes me think of how merciful God is toward his children, how great the church is, and how great heaven will be for those who are worthy to be there. I am amazed at how much God loves his children. He wants us to have the things we need. He wants us to be equal, and all to have enough to eat, a warm bed to sleep on, and clothes for us all. He wants us to be humble and serve one another. The spirit helps me know what to say to others, what to do with my time, and how to focus my energy on the things of eternal significance, like my relationship with my beautiful daughter. I am grateful for the calming, uplifting, and inspiring thoughts the Holy Ghost puts into my mind and heart each day.
I live my faith in many ways. Apart from attending church, studying the words of living and old prophets, and praying to God continually, I focus on treating people with kindness and respect. I try to inspire in people respect for themselves as royal sons and daughters of a Heavenly King, their Heavenly Father.
