Hi I'm Monte

I'm an analytical thinker, a sports enthusiast, a husband, a father and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a husband and a father of 4. I enjoy spending time with my family. We like going camping, to sporting events and museums. I enjoy playing sports, watching sports and reading.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church, but that is not why I am a Mormon. I had to decide for myself if this was something I wanted to do. Job transfers took me away from my parents and siblings but the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was something I could always count on. I love what the Church represents and the good it does throughout the world.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith everyday by the way I interact with others. I want others to want to know more about Jesus and the Mormon church because of my example. I also teach a class of 8-9 year old boys. This gives me a chance each week to study from the scriptures as I prepare lessons. They are an energetic bunch but they are eager to learn about Jesus and his teachings.

How can faith in Jesus Christ influence us in our marriages and family relationships? in our friendships?

Faith in Jesus Christ influences my marriage and family life everyday. I know that what I am working towards with my wife and family have eternal rewards and are not just for this life. It gives me more motivation to do what is right and be a good example, especially in my family. I also know that in my relationship with my wife, we believe that Jesus Christ is an essential part of that and it helps us get past disagreements that are not important. As long as we are striving to be an eternal family, the rest will take care of itself. Show more Show less
