Hi I'm Chuck

I'm a Mormon. I love life and my Family.

About Me

I'm a husband and father, I cherish both of those titles the most in life. My family is my biggest joy in life. I love time with my family, at home or on the go. We have two daughters, a dog and a cat.

Why I am a Mormon

As a young child I attend church. When I became older I stopped going to church. The year I turned 18 years old I began asking myself questions about life and what I wanted from it. I began to go back to church and became acvtive once again. By this time I had forgot a lot of the things I had learned while I was younger so I began to read the Book of Mormon to find out if it was true and if the church was true. My answer didn't come over night it took time. It took prayer, a faitful prayer and I had to keep reading. The further I went the more I felt it. Then on night as I was reading in the Book of Mormon, the spirit touched me so strongly, I knew from that moment on it was true. I still know that it's all true, I'm greatful for the gospel in my life and my family. Prayers do get answered, the Book of Mormon is true. Joseph Smith was a Prophet of God. Our Heavenly Father loves us and lives as does His Son Jesus Christ our Savior. I share this my testimony with you in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

How I live my faith

I try to live each day to the fullest. I have learned that following the Savior bring the most calm and peace to ones life. To do this I read from the scriptures daily and prayer. I also attend church meetings and go to the temple. I involve my family in all of this. You have to live it and not worry about, what other may say or think. Your faith is yours and no one can take it away, but you must take care of it and let it grow as a Prophet from the Book of Mormon taught in the Book of Alma. I also hold a calling in church that helps me be involved, I love being around other members of the church. Agian prayer and reading the Book of Mormon is the key in my life to living my faith.

Does The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints endorse political parties?

Chuck
No, the church is netural as far as political parties go. The chruch strongly encourages members to take part in politics and the issues that surround the political world. We as members support those polictical parties that most fall in line with what we believe, support, and want to see done in the political world. The church doesn't tell us who to support, it's our choice to decide. Show more Show less

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Chuck
A testimony is something that one has come to know and has had it confirmed by the Spirit. A testimony is something that grows as you learn of the gospel. A testimony is your own, somthing you find and build upon. A basic testimony of the church starts with Heaven Father, Jesus Christ, Joseph Smith, and Book of Mormon. We pray to know that the things are true and by the Holy Ghost we come to know these things are true, this is what makes a testimony. It's what one knows to be true in the gospel. Show more Show less
