Hi I'm Christopher

I grew up in rural Idaho. I am a disability advocate. I make websites and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

More than anything else, I hope to be known as a family man. Being a good husband and father is hard, but when I'm giving it my best I go to bed feeling both really tired and really good inside. I grew up in rural Idaho and hope to one day talk my wife into trying out the country life, but in the meantime we get outdoors whenever we can. My primary professional interest has always been disability issues, but I also find time to fiddle around with web technologies a fair bit.

Why I am a Mormon

The reasons that I started out as a Mormon go back a few generations. I choose to live as a Mormon because it helps me to understand the what and how of life and my place in the great big everything. Knowing where I came from, what I need to do in this life and where I'm headed after I die gives me peace, purpose and direction.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in my efforts to be the best husband and father that I can be.

What do Mormons believe concerning the doctrine of grace?

I give life my best effort, but realize that often isn't enough. Once I have done all that I can do- I rely on grace, through Jesus Christ to make up for my shortcomings. Grace not only makes it possible for me to be forgiven of my mistakes, it enables me to take the meager talents I have been given and use them the bless the lives of others. If I have faith, repent and do my best to follow Jesus Christ, I will be saved in the next life. That is good news, but the part of grace that I am most grateful for is how it helps me in the here and now. I receive strength, forgiveness and even daily breath through the grace of Jesus Christ.
