Chat With a Mormon Online
I come from a family of seven children and my wife from a family of twelve. When we got married we asked God to send us lots of children. He gave us fourteen children, 10 boys and 4 girls! I love being a father and having a home full of people I love. We perform music as a family and this gives us the opportunity to learn to work together to serve the people in our community. We do fiddle, gospel, blue grass, old time favorites, patriotic music and all sorts of dancing. Each person has a unique gift that brings variety and fun to our performances. God puts His love in our hearts and we have real harmony at home.
My family has been members of the LDS church for six generations. My ancestors crossed the great plains of America in covered wagons in search of a place to live their religion in peace. Even though I have deep roots in this church I had to find out for myself that it was the true church of God. I have studied the doctrines of this church and have fasted and prayed to know if they are true. I have received a personal witness that this is the church of Jesus Christ. I believe that God is my Heavenly Father. I believe that Jesus is His son and my savior and that he suffered and died to pay for my sins. I believe that if I live the simple doctrines that Jesus taught I can find peace in this life and will be able to live with Him in the next life. Those doctrines are: faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, repentance of all my sins, baptism by immersion by someone who has authority and receiving the Holy Ghost in my life. I feel God’s love when I keep his commandments and try to do his will.
I am grateful to the Lord for giving me a loving wife and a home full of children. It brings me a lot of joy to perform music for the people in our community. The time we spend together practicing and performing are happy memories. After we have given it our all, the Lord steps in and magnifies our efforts. It is His spirit that ministers to the hearts of the people. I am grateful that we can work with Him as a family to touch the lives of the people we meet.
