Hi I'm Chris
I'm a husband, father, and attorney in that order. I'm a Mormon.
I just recently graduated from law school and am trying to balance getting my career started with trying to be the best husband and father I can be to my wife and two little girls.
I was born a Mormon but have lived most of my life with my best friends not being of the same faith. As I've tried to follow what I believe to be God's plan, I've had my views challenged on many occasions--both from internal and external sources. While I have the same ups and downs as anyone, for me it keeps coming back to how much happier I am when I'm following God's plan, and how willing He is to reassure me and guide me to the degree that I'm willing to ask and be patient. He's not let me down and I intend not to let Him down.
Right now, what I consider to be the most important expression of my faith is the efforts that my wife and I make to teach our small children. Every day we try to remember to pray as a family, read the scriptures, and talk about Jesus. Outside of our home, I'm fortunate enough to involved heavily in our congregation's mens group. It makes me feel very blessed and very privileged to be in a position to serve, even though it requires some additional time away from my family for meetings and to visit other families in their homes. For me, with all of the relatively unpleasant things that life requires us to worry about (bills, logistics of life, etc.), it's gratifying to be in a position where we can be concerned for and in a position to help others.
