About Me

"When obedience ceases to be an irritant and becomes our quest, in that moment God will endow us with power."  -Ezra T. Benson

I was born and raised in the great state of North Carolina, USA.  I grew up in Swansboro, NC, and lived there until I was 17.  I went to Brigham Young University for two years and am now serving in the Kenya Nairobi Mission.

I know that this church is the true church restored to this earth through Jesus Christ through the boy Joseph Smith. I have seen the gospel work in my life and I am eternally grateful for being born into it. I know that there is a true and living prophet on this earth today, Thomas S. Monson, who leads and directs this church under the direction of Jesus Christ. President Monson leads the church righteously and by divine inspiration. I know that because of the great sacrifice by God our Father in heaven, who sacrificed his only begotten son to suffer and die and be resurrected, my family is able to be an eternal family. We will be reunited after death in the Kingdom of God. I know that Jesus Christ bled and died so that I may live and have a way to return to my father in heaven even after being an imperfect being on this earth. Through the Atonement, I am able to see my father in heaven again. I know that He loves me and knows me individually. I have seen his hand in my life. My prayers have been answered. I have seen miracles in my life and in the lives of all those around me. He is the true God and my father. I want to return to live with Him again and it will be a joyous reunion. I know that my Savior and brother, Jesus Christ, suffered and died for me so that I might be able to return and see my Heavenly Father. I know that Jesus Christ was resurrected to fulfill all parts of the Atonement so that God's Eternal Plan of Happiness could be accomplished. I know my Savior lives. I say these things solemnly in the name of my Savior, my Redeemer, Jesus Christ, amen.

Favorite Scriptures

Alma 48:17
"Yea, verily, verily I say unto you, if all men had been, and were, and ever would be, like unto Moroni, behold, the very powers of hell would have been shaken forever; yea, the devil would never have power over the hearts of the children of men."

Alma 37:37
"Counsel with the Lord in all thy doings and he will direct thee for good; yea, when thou liest down at night lie down unto the Lord, that he may watch over you in your sleep; and when thou risest in the morning let thy heart be full of thanks unto God; and if ye do these things, ye shall be lifted up at the last day."

Doctrine and Covenants 100:4-6
"Therefore, I, the Lord, have suffered you to come unto this place; for thus it was expedient in me for the salvation of souls.
"Therefore, verily I say unto you, lift up your voices unto this people; speak the thoughts that I shall put into your hearts, and you shall not be confounded before men;
"For it shall be given you in the very hour, yea, in the very moment, what ye shall say."
