Hi I'm Justin

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a husband and father with four children. That consumes the majority of my time, as it should. Sometimes it's a struggle but I'm humbled how Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ have blessed my life. It's amazing to be called "Dad" and see the children grow. As far as hobbies, I enjoy long-distance running and hiking/climbing... and generally doing things to stay relatively fit.

Why I am a Mormon

I fully believe the doctrine and know it's the true Gospel of Jesus Christ. I've studied the teachings and put them to practice in my life. Through this, I've felt the influence of the Holy Ghost confirming the truth to my heart and mind. I've also been blessed by good family and other Church members. They have supported me through thick and thin, which has also helped my faith and testimony grow.

How I live my faith

I enjoy going to Church and the interaction with other Church members. This keeps me grounded and focused on areas where I need to improve. Really it all comes down to trying to change to become more like Jesus Christ. That's the goal. I've had opportunities over the years to serve in many different areas: Youth, Boy Scouts, Missionary Work, and Church leadership. What great life experiences the Lord has shown me through these opportunities!

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

I think it's a lot like most people and families. My family has our fair share of day-to-day montonies and struggles. But there are also those cherished moments that forge true memories. Through it all, we have the tender assurance of Heavenly Father watching over us. This gives us confidence and perspective in addressing life's challenges. It's well known that outward things like abstaining from alcohol, coffee, etc. are part of the Mormon lifestyle. Thank goodness because it's saved me a lot of money over the years!
