Chat With a Mormon Online
I am a father and a husband. I come from a very large family of 8 siblings. I am in my final semester of college and I am graduating in small business and communications. I am a landscape contractor and I love the challenge of designing new backyards. My passion lies in the outdoors, with hunting and fishing being my favorite thing to do. I enjoy playing sports, wakeboarding and snowboarding. I love being married and being a dad.
I grew up in the church all my life, however I still have conversion story of my own. The gospel of Jesus Christ is something that each individual person has to learn about on their own. I've always had a belief and faith in the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, but it wasn't until I was almost 18 years old and I decided that I needed to pray to the lord to know if this was his true church. I received an answer that was as real as life itself and a confirmation that this is his only true and living church. At that moment, I knew that I would never be alone. There is no doubt in my mind that God loves us and that Jesus Christ sacrificed his life for us, so that we can be redeeemed through him. If I was not a member of this gospel, I would be lost and would not have the assurance that families can be together forever. There is no greater joy than a family. God still communicates with his children today, all we have to be willing to do is ask and listen.
I think that the greatest way to live one's faith is through being an example and providing service. It is important to be honest in my dealings and with the people I associate with. In my line of work, it isn't always the cleanest of environments, so I try to always use clean language and stick to my morals and beliefs. I have had people recognize that I don't use foul language and it has given me an opportunity to share with them my beliefs, religion and why I don't do certain things. Because of the strong conviction I have in my faith, leading by example is a way I live my faith.
