John Grover

He works as a Registered Nurse, an author, and served on the Idaho Council for Developmental Disabilities. John served a mission for the Church in Lima, Peru and was raised on a cattle ranch as the youngest of 11 children.

Brother John, THANK YOU for articulating your sensitive and stirring story! I am impressed with how well you touch on points that can help anyone with any struggle, and the hope and strength found through the Savior and His gospel. I watched both your short version and the full version as well as your essay, and my eyes welled up with tears as you shared your strong testimony of the Atonement, and a brightness of hope for the future. Through the commonalities of SSA, I have met many great people and brothers, and you have become a dear friend. I have been lifted this day, and am a better person for having listened to your story and reading your essay. God bless your for your courage to share this. I was particularly impressed with your charge to encourage us to help share the burdens of others, whatever they may be. Thank you again. God bless you my friend. I pray that others will be lifted and encouraged as I have been because of your story.
