Hi I'm Jay

I grew up in Washington State. I'm a father of 4 wonderful children and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of 8 children who were all raised Mormon. I served for two years as a missionary in New Zealand where I fell in love with the Polynesian people and culture. I married my best friend and we now have 4 wonderful children. I have worked in various Information Technology (IT) related fields for over 20 years.

Why I am a Mormon

While I was raised a Mormon, I didn't really know if it was the right or "true" church until i was preparing to be a missionary when I was 19 years old. I needed to know that what I was doing was the right thing which I really hadn't done up to that point. When I prayed to know if this was the right church and that I was doing what God wanted me to be doing, I felt the Spirit more than at any other time telling me it was right; it was a feeling of incredible love and calm.

How I live my faith

I work with 14 and 15 year old young men and scouts. I love seeing them learn how to be leaders and in their knowledge and understanding of the Savior.
