Hi I'm Anthony

I'm a husband, a father ,a student, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Georgia with a large family. I was the oldest of 6 boys and 2 girls. I am married to a beautiful wife and we want a big family too. Today I work full time at a manufacturing plant and I am going to school to become a Civil Engineer. When I come home I love to play with my 3 little boys. Our favorite things to do are read stories, build blanket forts, and wrestle.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because I read the Book of Mormon and I know for myself that God prepared that book for me. I know that as I read the Book of Mormon regularly that I am closer to my Savior Jesus Christ, I know what he expects of me and I have a greater strength to live like He wants me to live. A book as sacred and as powerful as that could only be brought to light by a servant of God. I know through my own experiences that God Loves me and my family just as he loved the people that I read about in the Bible and in the Book of Mormon. They had prophets to lead them and we have living prophets to lead us today.

How I live my faith

My family and I attend church meetings every Sunday. Monday night is special family time that we set aside to read what the living prophet has to say about leading a Christ-like life in todays world, we play games and enjoy time together. Every night we put our sons to bed by reading the scriptures and praying together as a family.

What is the priesthood?

Anthony
Priesthood power is the power and authority that God used to organize the earth from the beginning. The priesthood is the authority that God has given to man to keep his work orderly here on earth. We use the priesthood to bless the lives of those around us and to act for Jesus Christ in officiating his church. Show more Show less
