Hi I'm Wade Mann

I am a single father to two impossibly cute little girls. I am a devout Mormon. I love movies, TV shows, writing essays & fiction.

About Me

I have way too many hobbies. I love to cook. I love to blog. I love to talk politics. I love to eat at cool restaurants. I love to study business topics. I love to watch movies. I love to write. I love to throw parties. I love to hear rock bands. THERE ISN'T ENOUGH TIME IN THE DAY! I am the oldest of five children and love spending time with my parents and siblings when I can. I'm a single dad, with two daughters. Succeeding as a father is my top priority. My family relationships are my most important possessions. I am a spiritual person. I believe that spirituality is a common language that bridges cultures, philosophies, and specific churches. People of faith can connect through art. People of faith can under one another through civil discourse. People of faith can identify with others through common experiences. We can always relate to others’ trials of faith. We are all tried and tested. I am a digital marketer by profession. I love helping small businesses communicate their story online. Communication is, I think, a fundamentally spiritual process; and so the work that I do always feels like it connects with my religious life in key ways. The better we are at communicating with others the better we are at communicating with God. And the stronger we become at interacting with God, the stronger we become at connecting with others. I am politically active. I'm a democrat and a progressive. Being LDS helps me define my values as they relate to public issues.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the gospel that the LDS church teaches is true. It's as simple as that. I know it's true because I've tested the principles taught by the Church and have seen the consequences of those actions. The results have always been happiness. It's not necessarily always easy. But it is always a valuable experience in the long run. This church has made me a stronger, more loving, and better person.

How I live my faith

My faith starts personally. I study the scriptures or a spiritual talk every morning. I pray daily. I attend church meetings each week. These habitual practices have helped me to develop a relationship with God. I feel his presence in my life. I see him acting on my behalf regularly. I believe that he cares about me and those that I love. I try to serve within my congregation and community. I try to participate in the classes at church, making comments and sharing inspiring experiences. I believe that it's important to help others to improve their level of spirituality. In-so-doing I have been strengthened myself. I believe in being a representation of Christ in all of my dealings with my peers. I try to always act in the way that Christ would act. I'm not perfect at this, but in the effort has come growth. I believe in speaking out on the spiritual and political issues of our time. Imagine how much better our world would be if people were fully educated, active spiritually, and politically involved.
