Hi I'm Sean

I'm a psychology grad student , a sports fan, and a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a clinical psychology PhD student. I really enjoy playing my guitar, ukulele, playing golf, and hiking in the mountains.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes sense to me that I be taught to seek after the Spirit, and work to overcome the wiles of the physical, which don't bring me happiness. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true because I've prayed to find out, and God answered that prayer through the same Spirit which I seek. It only makes sense that we should have prophets today, as we are faced with so many challenges that are unique to our day.

How I live my faith

First and foremost I am a home teacher. That means I have been assigned to teach Gospel principles to a few members of our congregation in their homes. I also am in charge of my ward's finances, which provides me with a greater testimony of the sacredness of the Lord's funds. But above all, I live my faith by trying to do what the Savior would so, striving to be loving toward all whom I meet.

What is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' attitude regarding homosexuality and same sex marriage?

We all have genetic predispositions toward certain behaviors. The Church sees homosexuality as no different. We are not "anti-gay," but we understand that marriage is sacred, and like all sacred things should be revered within the bounds the Lord has set, namely between a man and a woman. Acting upon tendencies toward homosexual activity is a sin, and will cause a separation from God as with all sin to he or she who engages in it. The Church is so adamant about preserving marriage between a man and a woman because it believes that homosexual marriage is an attack on the traditional family, how God would have the family unit be. Man and woman both have distinct, equal roles in marriage and in parenthood, and these need to be preserved as well. I know that this may not be socially acceptable for many, but it is the truth that has not changed since God first instituted his laws. Show more Show less
