Hi I'm Sean

I'm a Mormon

About Me

I grew up in Colorado. As a result I love the snow and I love skiing. I enjoy all sports really, I played basketball, ran track, and played football in high school. Now I'm studying industrial design at Brigham Young University and life is great! I am amazed at how much cool stuff there is out there and I just try to experience a little bit more of it every day!

Why I am a Mormon

First, I was because I trusted my parent's example. Then I was because I needed a solid path and God showed me that this was it. Now I am because I love joy, peace, salvation, beauty, life, and all the other things that come from Jesus Christ too much to give it up.

How I live my faith

I just try to talk to God every day. He tells me who I can be better friends with, and what I can do to a life that will bless others more. There are a lot of other things that I try to do like go to church, teach young men and women, and visit those that are in need, but really it all starts with talking to God and then listening when He tells me what to do.

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

I have faith that in the end we will be happiest as we enjoy an eternal family, consisting of a man and a woman and children, with God. Unfortunately that ideal can seem impossible in this life, as everyone's circumstances are different. One such circumstance that makes marriage difficult is same gender attraction. It is absolutely recognized that this is an inclination that people struggle with and they deserve all the understanding and love in the world in dealing with it. God has commanded that sexual relations are only to be had between a man and a woman within the bonds of marriage. I know that despite one's sexual inclinations, this family unit will bring all the ultimate happiness that we desire in the end, though it may be extremely difficult in this life. Show more Show less
