Hi I'm Damon
I'm a business professor and a family guy, and yes, I'm a mormon.
I am a happy guy, with a pretty good deal right now. I'm happily married with 4 kids. I teach college business classes. I love to ride my bike, read, and play with family and friends. Not a bad gig. :)
Why I am a Mormon
Because I have received spiritual witnesses throughout my life, and I know that God has directed me to this path. This short space does not provide enough to write all the ways I know this gospel is true. And because I know this is God's will, I follow it inspite of any trails and I have witnessed many blessings. This life has a purpose in an eternal plan, and I love learning and relearning about that purpose. I know that spiritual experiences are not like other types of learning (e.g., in a classroom), but know that my Father in Heaven will direct me as I seek to follow him in trying to be the best I can be (which most days is not great). I have witnessed many things that provide evidence and confirmation the gospel is real, and this life has a greater eternal purpose.
How I live my faith
I live my faith by doing all I can to stay true to the things I know are true. I've had many spiritual experiences which have added to my knowledge of the love of my Father in Heaven and older brother Jesus Christ. I try to learn all I can about the will of God for me, and try to align my life accordingly. It is a very personal process unlike anything I've done in other aspects of my life. I try not to force my beliefs on others, but welcome the few opportunities I have to share my beliefs with those I love. Although I often fall short of my goals, I continue to try and am grateful for Christ's sacrifice that allows me to continually try.
