Hi I'm JP Sanglap

I'm a Filipino, a husband, a father, a programmer, a writer and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like good books and inspiring music. My favorite places to be are historical, nature and places where one can commune easily with our Heavenly Father and His magnificent creations. I love to write and I am a dreamer (which I sometimes used to create my stories). I have different interest but none as intense as being in the true church of Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, but didn't had a firm testimony until I started my training to serve as a missionary. One night in a devotional with President Wagstaff, he challenged each of us to have a real testimony of our own. That night as I kneeled down before my bed and asked Heavenly Father if the things that I believed were true, I felt the assurance and the answer that I needed to build my testimony of His true Church. A pivot point where my testimony grew and became strong. Since that time I knew that this church is His true church, that Joseph Smith is truly called of God and that the Book of Mormon is true. It has sustained me in my trials and blessed me ever more since that day that I knew I had a testimony of my own.

How I live my faith

I attend church services and live the gospel way of life. Teaching the gospel is one of the most fulfilling and happiest responsibilities especially when you see people you teach understand the principles of the gospel. Now that I have my own family, I live my faith by striving to keep God's commandments and helping my family to do as well.

What is the First Vision?

JP Sanglap
It is the time when the fourteen year old Joseph Smith first saw and heard our Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ in an answer to a sincere and honest prayer. This was the start of the restoration of Christ's church back to earth. Show more Show less
