Hi I'm Barry

I'm a Mormon and always will be!

About Me

I like to play sports, board games, video games, read fantasy\history books, and outdoor activities. I like hanging out with my family and I have 8 sisters and 2 brothers.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the LDS church, have read the Book of Mormon and felt the spirit of God from it's teachings so I have a testimony that this is God's church and I know that it is true.

How I live my faith

I go to church, pray, read the scriptures, and do my best to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I'm also making an effort to attend the temple regularly.
