Hi I'm Byron

I was born and raised in Canada. I served a two year mission in Mexico as a young man. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband, a father and a grandfather. I love to sing, cook and eat vegetarian food, play ultimate frisbee, tennis and go to the beach as often as possible.

Why I am a Mormon

It makes me happy. Living the principles of the gospel make me a better man, husband, father and friend. I know where I came from, the purpose of my life here and what life after death means. Because of my religion, I know who I am and that God loves me and wants me to be happy.

How I live my faith

It is summed up in a song I learned as a child ... "I’m trying to be like Jesus; I’m following in his ways. I’m trying to love as he did, in all that I do and say. At times I am tempted to make a wrong choice, But I try to listen as the still small voice whispers, Love one another as Jesus loves you. Try to show kindness in all that you do. Be gentle and loving in deed and in thought, For these are the things Jesus taught. I’m trying to love my neighbor; I’m learning to serve my friends. I watch for the day of gladness when Jesus will come again. I try to remember the lessons he taught. Then the Holy Spirit enters into my thoughts, saying: Love one another as Jesus loves you. Try to show kindness in all that you do. Be gentle and loving in deed and in thought, For these are the things Jesus taught."

Are Mormons Christians?

Byron
Yes. Jesus' name is in the title of the church, which tells you something. We have additional books of scripture, the purpose of which is to bear witness that Jesus is the Christ, which also tells you a great deal. In the Book of Mormon, his name or title appears once every 2.7 verses. It is probably the most Christo-centric book in the world. We are not irritated as much as amused when some choose to call us non-Christians. If they mean by that, that we don't agree with them in every particular doctrine, that is correct. We are grateful whenever anybody describes Christ as their Savior and tries to follow him. That is what we are trying to do. Show more Show less
