Hi I'm Verlan
My wife and I have one child. I am a PhD student at the University of Virginia.
Why I am a Mormon
I am a Mormon because of the love and gratitude I have for my Savior Jesus Christ. I want to show my love and gratitude for Him by following Him and his Gospel. I am grateful for the Church of Jesus Christ, which helps me in my efforts.
How I live my faith
My faith teaches me, first and foremost, that as a disciple of Jesus Christ, my most important responsibilities are to my wife and children: to be a devoted husband and father. Beyond that, my faith encourages me to serve my fellow-man: those in my neighborhood, community, congregation, and elsewhere.
