Murray: Mormon.

Hi I'm Murray

About Me

I love my life. I have an amazing wife who makes life happy and productive. We enjoy raising our three sweet daughters, who are full of life and eager to learn. I spend as much time as I can with my family. I don't even like to stop for gas on the way home from work because I am eager to be with them. I work as an optometrist (eye doctor) and enjoy taking care of people, their eyes and helping them have the best vision possible. If I have free time, besides being with family I also enjoy playing basketball and writing children's books.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe I am closer to God and know Jesus Christ more because of my involvement in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I am taught divine principles and encouraged to live a good and productive life through the Church. I have felt the Spirit of God let me know that this is the church that has been established by Jesus Christ. I love that I'm a Mormon and know that I am a better and happier person because of it.

Personal Stories

How can we develop greater harmony in our homes?

By taking time to serve our families, our homes become happier and full of love. When I take time to think about what the members of my family need and then serve them based on those needs, I notice that our home is a much happier place. When everyone in the family serves each other, love and harmony increase and each member is much more successful than they could be on their own.

How I live my faith

I study the scriptures and pray on my own to learn more about spiritual things and strengthen my relationship with God. My wife and I study the Gospel together which strengthens our faith and builds our love for each other. Together, we teach our children principles of faith and righteousness. We pray together at meal time, read scripture stories, sing gospel songs before bed, and talk to our kids about God and Jesus Christ. We want our children to know who they are and how to live happy lives. My faith affects every decision and every aspect of my life. I am a more successful father, husband and man because of it.
