Hi I'm Patrick

I have a beautiful wife and 11 children. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My greatest joy comes from being a husband and father, watching my family grow and develop. I work for a large, private education company. I'm a big basketball fan and care too much about my garden and fruit trees.

Why I am a Mormon

I had a good Mormon friend when I was young that was on my youth sports teams. We think that it was his family that sent the missionaries to our home. I felt early on that what they were teaching was really true. I was baptized just before I turned eleven. Since that time, my testimony of Jesus Christ and my understanding of His central role in God's plan has deepened. The gospel of Jesus Christ as taught in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true! It makes sense and living it to the best of my ability brings me happiness. I know that it is the road to salvation.

How I live my faith

Every morning starts with a family devotional time. We begin by kneeling together in prayer and then spend about 20 minutes reading from and discussing the scriptures together. I also serve in a volunteer position in the Church that allows me to get to know and to serve the other members of our congregation. I also "get to" attend lots of meetings! I get the most joy from teaching children and youth.
