Hi I'm B.J.

I'm from MT, I'm a medical student, a son, a husband, a father, and a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the husband of a wonderful wife for almost 12 years, a Father of two beautiful kids, a 2nd year medical student, and a Mormon. I grew up in the state of Montana, and have lived in Utah, Idaho, and Southern California for the last eleven years until I started medical school. I'm currently however living on the beautiful tropical island of Dominica in the Caribbean.

Why I am a Mormon

I study the scriptures and I seek the Lord daily in all that I do. It brings peace to my heart as I live my life how I know my Savior would have me live. The more I study, the more everything just makes sense. I don't feel like I'm searching something. I feel at peace with my standing before God and man. I know what I have, and I Iove it. I have had spiritual experiences that I cannot deny and I truly believe that the Spirit of the Lord, can and will witness to anyone who honestly wants to know the truth for themselves.

How I live my faith

At this exact moment I'm living in the small Caribbean country of Dominica. I'm working with the local people here, as well as the visiting students, to help establish The Church of Jesus Christ more fully. I also try to help all I am in contact with each day to grow closer to their Savior.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

B.J.
God has always followed a pattern. He does not change. From the beginning of time God has spoke to his prophets and they have wrote down his teachings. "Surely the Lord God will do nothing, abut he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets." - Amos 3:7 Just as the Bible is a record of the prophets writings, so is the Book of Mormon. The difference is the Book of Mormon prophets lived in ancient America. The Book of Mormon is a collection of different writings from different prophets living in ancient America from 2500 B.C. until 400 A.D. The different books from the different prophets were compiled into one book by the prophet Mormon. Show more Show less
