Hi I'm Thayne

About Me

I am a husband, father of 3 and follower of Jesus Christ. I enjoy studying history and learning from other cultures and socities.

Why I am a Mormon

From my earliest memories of life, I have always had a burning desire to learn anything and everything I can from those around me or books that I could read. Yet I knew that even though I could learn much from those around me, I would have to form my own conclusions and understanding on my own. I was blessed to have been born into a family who were members of the church. Although I have known the church from the day I was born, I knew that at some point in my life I would have to determine for myself whether the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is God's church established in the latter-days. As a young teenager, I made the decision to pray and ask God whether the things I had learned were true and what He would have me do with my life. After thinking about the things I had learned and then asking in prayer my Heavenly Father whether these things are true, a clearer understanding and peace filled my soul and let me know that the restored gospel of Jesus Christ as revealed to the Prophet Joseph Smith are true!

How I live my faith

My life is what shapes my faith and my faith is what shapes my life. My whole life has in one way or another been the result of my experiences as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The greatest experiences and blessings in my life have come from the decisions I have made based off of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. Some of my decisions have caused me: to serve as a LDS Missionary; meet my wife; start a family; to be a leader in my trade community. All of these which have been decided based off of the example and teaching of my Savior Jesus Christ.
