Hi I'm J. Amburn

We live by a certain set of standards that are set to provide the best, happiest, and healthiest life possible.

About Me

I am a Tennessee native. I have a wife, Liz, and two beautiful children, June and Owen. I grew up a baptist and my family mostly remains baptist to this day. I enjoy being LDS. It has certainly had it's challenges, but I have grown with every challenge. One of our Prophets once said that being a member of our church wasn't intended to be easy. Being a faith of discipline is what makes it so wonderful.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I feel that this is the most complete composition of the gospel on Earth today. The questions I had as a baptist were answered as I learned more about the Latter Day Saint (LDS/Mormon) doctrine. I already believed in God as my Heavenly Father, and Jesus Christ as my Savior, but this church fills in all of the gaps of uncertainty in my life. Is it an easy church? Not always, but it's be most rewarding church I have ever known.

How I live my faith

I am a ward missionary, so I go out with the missionaries to help teach the gospel to anyone willing to listen. Being a convert has helped break the ice with some of the investigators. I also, as part of my calling, teach the Gospel Principles class. It's the class that people interested in the church come to so they can learn our beliefs. I'm sure that I learn more every time I teach.

Are Mormons Christians?

J. Amburn
Absolutely, no question, we ARE Christians. Many people aren't educated in the real of religion other than their own and I understand that. I didn't know much about the Mormons before I met my wife. Our very foundation on which we stand is built on the belief that God is our creator and Jesus Christ died so that we may live. He is our Savior and without His great sacrifice, we would be lost.
