Hi I'm Murray

I married my high school sweetheart. I have three beautiful daughters. I'm a family man and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love my life. I have an amazing wife who makes life happy and productive. We enjoy raising our three sweet daughters, who are full of life and eager to learn. I spend as much time as I can with my family. I don't even like to stop for gas on the way home from work because I am eager to be with them. I work as an optometrist (eye doctor) and enjoy taking care of people, their eyes and helping them have the best vision possible. If I have free time, besides being with family I also enjoy playing basketball and writing children's books.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe I am closer to God and know Jesus Christ more because of my involvement in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I am taught divine principles and encouraged to live a good and productive life through the Church. I have felt the Spirit of God let me know that this is the church that has been established by Jesus Christ. I love that I'm a Mormon and know that I am a better and happier person because of it.

How I live my faith

I study the scriptures and pray on my own to learn more about spiritual things and strengthen my relationship with God. My wife and I study the Gospel together which strengthens our faith and builds our love for each other. Together, we teach our children principles of faith and righteousness. We pray together at meal time, read scripture stories, sing gospel songs before bed, and talk to our kids about God and Jesus Christ. We want our children to know who they are and how to live happy lives. My faith affects every decision and every aspect of my life. I am a more successful father, husband and man because of it.

Are Mormons Christians?

Yes, we are Christians. We believe in Jesus Christ, that He is the Son of God and Savior of the world. We read of Jesus in the Bible and study about His life and teachings. We believe the only way to heaven is through the grace of Jesus Christ and His saving power. We must show faith in Jesus, repent of our sins and follow Him. I teach my daughters about Jesus and try to help them develop their own faith in Him. Almost every night before bed I sing to them the song "Jesus Loves Me". Me three year old daughter can tell many of the stories of Jesus from the Bible. I love and worship Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. Show more Show less
