Hi I'm Oliver Meyers

I am a musician, a chef, I am dyslexic, and I believe that the Lord can help you with anything and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Kaysville Utah. I love to play music and to cook. I LOVE cooking. I come from a great family who is all LDS and is all active members. I am truly blessed for everything the lord has given me. Right know I am currently serving a 2 year mission in the north part of Georgia. I am going around and telling people about Jesus Christ and all he has done for me and what he can do for them. I think it would be pretty selfish of me to not go and share this beautiful message after what he has done for me.

Why I am a Mormon

Well that is a question I really didn’t understand for a long time. I grow up Mormon and I really didn’t test my faith for a long time I was playing the part of a good Mormon boy. But inside I didn’t really know. Well I knew but I didn’t know I knew. So I started going down some wrong paths I really shouldn’t have gone down, and it really did some damage but I now know that I never could have gone too far for the savior to give up on me! So I needed to turn my life around so one thing I did was ask my parents for help they said to do a lot of praying and to read the book of Mormon. We had read it a lot together as a family but I had never read it on my own. Mostly it is because I am dyslexic and I hate reading!!!! A lot of times I heard people talk about how they got this happiness from reading books. But that didn’t make much sense to me because I never found joy in reading books because it was really hard for me to read and understand what I read. But as I started reading I found it easier to read. I know it is because god helped me to read and ever since I have been reading a lot more and I have been happier then I ever have and that is one of the biggest reason I am a Mormon is because it makes me so happy. And I know that whatever I need I can go to the lord and he will help me and take care of me because he is my father in heaven who cares about me and he would do what is best for me. And that is so comforting to know that there is someone watching out for you.

How I live my faith

Well... I could give the basic answers like I go to church, I pray, or I read the scripture. But true fully that is not how you live your faith that is how you build your faith. I have noticed that is not about what you do on the outside that shows people how you live you faith it’s what you think and do on the inside that is the true measure of your faith. Because as I have done all those things that show faith like I said before going to church or pray and thing like that it didn’t really show my true faith. That comes through your thoughts and the reason why you do things. Like if you only help someone because you think that they will give you something in return, that’s not the greatest reason why we should do thing. I have found that in this life we need to find someone we can look up to. And the people we look up to and focus on are the things that we become. So that’s why I look up to Jesus Christ because gave us the perfect example to live our life. As we follow him by living with hope, charity, love, knowledge, patience, humility, diligence, and our obedience our lives will become so much better and we will be happier and that is how I live my faith is by trying to do all of those things I am most definitely not perfect on all of them but I tell the people I affect sorry and then ask my father in heaven for forgiveness then I wake up and do it all over again.

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

Oliver Meyers
I have gotten this question a lot and it has been one I have always heard about but never understood it but as I learned more about our Heavenly Fathers plan for us it started to make more sense. This life it’s a time for us to be happy and grow it’s a time for us to get ready for what’s a head in our existence. This life is a time for us to get ready to meet God again and say I did follow you. I know that this life is a time for joy and the way I know to have true joy is by having a family. I know that sometimes my family can drive me crazy but that is where I have found all my joy is by helping and just living with my family. I am so excited to have a family of my own, and have a home of love and happiness where we can grow closer to each other and to our Heavenly Father. As we learn about happiness and joy we also learn about pain and misery that is just a part of this life yes it is hard and sometimes you wish it could just go away but as we learn about both we can appreciate the good from that bad. And I really think that is one of the biggest reasons we are down here is to learn. Show more Show less
