Chat With a Mormon Online
Self-employed father of six children. I own a small staffing company. I work mostly in the pharmaceutical/biotech sector. Two daughters at Brigham Young University - Provo, a high school age son, a middle-school age daughter, and two little ones at home. I coach soccer. I started running marathons a few years ago. I'm currently training for my first Ironman. Family is everything. I love every minute of it.
My wife introducted me to the Church when I was a recent college graduate. As a young husband and father I wanted to know where I came from, where I was going, and how to raise the children I would be bringing into the world. The best decision I ever made was joining the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Two Mormon missionaries taught me the Restored Gospel, and were able to answer questions that other churches I attended never could answer. The Gospel has kept our family close together. We know where we are going, what our future will bring us, and just how much Jesus Christ, our Savior, really means to us.
I really am grateful for our "Word of Wisdom" or health code we have in our Church. I am in better shape now as a 43 year old male, than I was when I was 18 years old. I have the strength to accomplish all the responsibilities I need to do each day with 6 very active children. I completed a 75 mile bike ride yesterday, and I feel great!!!
Serving in the church is very rewarding. Sometimes fun, sometimes a lot of work, mostly just a way to develop our talents, and bring us closer to our Savior. I have worked mostly in the Young Men's Organization. I have served in congregation leadership positions. I have taught early morning seminary to our youth. As a hometeacher, I have the opportunity to meet with families on a monthly basis in their homes, and share a gospel message with my 15 year old son. In our church, members spend a lot of time with each other. These people become such an active part of your life, it is more fitting to call them family.
