About Me

I've worked in software development since 2008 in both the defense industry and the education industry. My wife and I have three great little girls and we enjoy serving in our LDS (Mormon) ward in Herndon VA.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in Mormon family but never really had a strong appreciation for the church until I served a mission in Chile. During my mission I learned for myself that the promise in Moroni is true: 'And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost.' More specifically, I learned that the LDS church is the true church and that it is led by God.

How I live my faith

- I help folks job hunt and become more employable - I have Family Home Evening each week with my family and teach them gospel principles - I avoid pornographic, violent, and otherwise immoral media. - I do an honest day's work for an honest day's pay. - I do my home teaching every month.

Why are Mormons asked to donate 10% of their income to their Church?

Rich
Because the law of tithing is one of the commandments. We believe that requests and commandments that the church gives are from the Lord Himself. Show more Show less

How does the Church finance its operations?

Rich
Many of the church's initiatives are funded by tithing. Many church members live the law of tithing by paying 10% of their income to the church. Show more Show less
