Hi I'm Chris

I live in England, love exploring the outdoors, work as a Financial Controller and love chocolate. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I am currently working as a Financial Controller in Luton. I love watching old movies, enjoy exploring the outdoors and hope to tour America next year. I took 2 years out to serve as a missionary for the church in the beautiful Scotland and Ireland. I love to play football, being with my family and going camping. I am the second child of three and come from a non-mormon family. My favourite film is The Goonies!

Why I am a Mormon

Seven years ago two mormon missionaries knocked on my door and explained to me what they believed and why. It fascinated me how they were so happy and confiident in what they believed. They shared with me the Book of Mormon and as I read from it I felt great. As I continued to read from it I continued to have this special feeling. Eventually they shared with me that I could pray and ask God if the Book was true and He would give me an answer. This is what I did and I got my answer. I went to church and was amazed at how normal the people were and how great I felt being there. I was Baptised 3 weeks later and have loved trying to live my life as Jesus Christ would ever since. I am not perfect, I make mistakes like everybody does. But I am happy because I know every mistake can be un-done through Christ.

How I live my faith

I go to church each Sunday to remember what Christ has done for me and to learn how I can apply my Christian beliefs to my life. I particularly try to put Heavenly Father first on Sundays to show my respect to him. I spent 2 years as a voluntary missionary for the church in Scotland and Ireland where I fell in love with the scenery, people and cultures. It was a privilege to spend all day teaching people who wanted to know more about who God is, how they can be happy and what life is all about. I particularly enjoyed teaching children and helping them know why they don't need to worry about life and how to avoid mistakes in their life. This is why I continue to volunteer as a youth leader in our local church youth club and at annual youth camps. Prayer is a major thing for me as I know it is how we can know that God is there and loves us. Whenever I am down, I am amazed at how quickly a prayer can turn my attitude around and help me be happy and positive again.

What is being a Mormon like?

Being a Mormon is about enjoying life and being truely happy. We believe we can have this by doing good things, learning who god is and by helping each other, especially our families along the way. Show more Show less
