Hi I'm Quentin

I'm a father of five children. I'm a husband and a nurse. I love to cook. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Utah and have always been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I married my sweetheart wife in 2000 in the Mount Timpanogas Temple. We moved to St. Louis Missouri in 2002, almost a year after our first child died from SIDS. We now have three beautiful boys. I graduated in 2006 with my associates of science in nursing. I have been working as a nurse for six years in a hospital in St. Louis. I am going for my bachelors of nursing in the the Fall. I enjoy cooking and knitting. I enjoy spending time with my family and learning the gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the Church my entire life. I continue to be an active member because of the faith that I have in my Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. I have a testimony of the Church, that it is the Church of God and that through it we can receive the fullness of the gospel and know the plan that our Heavenly Father has for all of us.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as one of the nursery leaders, we teach the 18 month-3 year old children in our congregation. I have also served as the activities chairman and as a counselor in the presidency of our priesthood group. My wife and I serve the community through offering a grief support group for those who have suffered from a miscarriage or the loss of an infant.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

We are taught through revelation that a husband and wife, if sealed in the temple of God, can be together forever. Show more Show less

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Mormon women are just like other women. They are modest in dress and strive to live the commandments of God. Mormon women are asked not to have more than one earing per ear and are asked to refrain from getting tattoos. They are also taught that our Heavenly Father asks us not to engage in premarital sex and that they are daughters of God. Men and women are treated equally in the Church. The women do not hold the priesthood, but are open to receive blessings that come from having the priesthood in there lives, either through their dad or their husband. Show more Show less
