Hi I'm Sean

The Gospel of Jesus Christ brings me joy.

About Me

My biggest joy is my family. My wife and I were married in the Mesa Arizona Temple and have one son. I graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in Accounting and am currently employed as an auditor.

Why I am a Mormon

I chose to join the church when I was seventeen because I read the Book of Mormon, prayed, and received an answer from God that I could not deny. Everything that I learn about the restored gospel helped me want to be a better person and make a change. The weekend I was baptized and received the Holy Ghost was the happiest time of my life up to that point. The love of the Savior is stronger than any feeling or emotion, it is pure joy.

How I live my faith

Every day I try to become more like Jesus Christ through the decisions I make and through my actions. Starting a family has been a humbling experience that I felt that I wasn't ready for at first. But so far it has given me the opportunity to feel more love than I have before, and understand out Heavenly Father just a little more. I want to live my life with no regrets at the end. We all are not perfect and our lives will give us each unique circumstances, but it is the faith that we show in our decisions that define us. My goal is to get better, be the best father, husband, and son that I can be. Through it all I keep my faith and my trust in God and I know that things will turn out for the best.

What are some things that tell to you there is a God?

The earth and all things around us testify that there is a God. Though we cannot see him, hear him, or touch him we can come to know him. Throughout history he has communicated to us through prophets so we might know that there is a God and all things that he has done. These witnesses were written down and we have portions of those accounts in scriptures like the Bible and the Book of Mormon. As we come to know who He is through the prophets in these books and the living prophets that we have today we can be sure that there is a God. There is no surer way to tell us there is a God than to communicate with him through prayer. As we speak to him he will let us know he is there by feelings we receive as we pray, answers to prayers in our lives, and increased strength and capacity to accomplish things that are beyond our normal capabilities. All these things tell us that there is a God. Show more Show less
