Hi I'm Joe
Ask me what it means to be a Mormon!
I have three wonderful kids that occupy almost all of my time, but when I do have a moment I enjoy reading, playing the guitar and bamboo flute, and vintage computing. I'd love to be an author some day, but for now I make my way as a programmer, and small business consultant. My faith rounds out my life, and gives meaning to every new day; ask me about it sometime via my blog linked at the top of this page!
The thing I love best about the Mormon church is that I am always encouraged to ask my Father in Heaven, for everything. If I have questions, no one expects me to take their word for it- they always encourage me to ask God, through prayer, as we are instructed in the scriptures. When I do, I find a peace and a guidance that helps me to know what is right. We can have answers to our prayers, and that is one thing about the Mormon church that keeps my faith strong.
Currently I am serving as a secretary in a men's group at our local church building. It has been wonderful to get to know the young fathers in our church, and serve them in whatever way I can by organizing activities and helping managing the Sunday activities. For me, living my faith means waking up in the morning with joy in my heart for the blessing of a new day that the Lord has given me. It means going about my business with happiness, and faith that everything will work out for the best. As I read and learn more about what the Lord has in store for His children on the earth, I have a renewed faith that He really does want us to be happy while we are here.
