Hi I'm John

I was raised on a small Idaho farm. I am now an internet consultant and entrepreneur. I am also a Mormon.

About Me

I am a software consultant based out of my home office in a rural town in the state of Idaho (USA). I am the father of six kids and the husband of the girl of my dreams. I love to hike, ski, spend time on the lake, geocache, travel, and work on our little "ranch".

Why I am a Mormon

Although I come from a rich heritage and tradition within the Mormon faith, I have been taught to seek wisdom, learning, and truth for myself. I took the thought of religion seriously as a youth and studied much on the topic. As I read the scriptures and followed the counsel of Jesus Christ that promised that "If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine", I found that there was a change within me. As I follow the teachings of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, I feel a great deal of belonging, spiritual awareness, and a closeness to divinity that provides great purpose in my life. Striving to become more like my Savior has helped me find ways to look outward, serve others, and try to make the world a little better.

How I live my faith

Having six kids of my own, I have enjoyed the opportunities the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has given me to work with young people. Whether it is spending an hour or two with them in gospel discussion on Sunday, meeting for weeknight activities, or going on a weekend camping adventure - I am able to connect to the young people of today and feel that I can be an influence for good in their lives.
