Hi I'm Joel

I am a husband to my super sweet wife and we bask in the delight of 8 soon to be 9 children.

About Me

I have been maried for 18 years and am the pleased father of soon to be 9 children. We run a crazy ship with 7 boys and 1 girl who rules the roost. I am a small business owner who always seems to be running around like a chicken with it's feet cut off when I'm not sneaking a nap. I enjoy chaos, being overloaded with kids and getting a good snack whenever possible.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have felt the devine truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that His kingdom had been restored to the earth and it is led by Him through a prophet of God. The Book of Mormon fuels my soul and causes a burning in my spirit. I know that It is another testament of the Savior Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I strive to live my faith by being an honest person in all of my dealings. My goal is to treat all others with respect and be an example of Christ in all that I do. Striving to be a good example of Christ is not easy but I could not have it any other way.

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

We live like everybody else. Trying to deal honestly, live principles of Christ and enjoy life to it's fullest. Show more Show less

What is the role of the husband and the wife in the family?

My wife and I have a joint role in raising our family. We have been blessed to have 8 (soon to be 9) children. We have always felt that our children have needed constant and consistant guideance in this crazy world in which we live. My wife is a wonderful example and teacher to our children and is a homemaker (she has the 24/7 career). I own a small business and work hard to pay the bills, keep constant food on the table and spend quality time with our tribe. My wife and I work jointly in the raising and rearing of our kids. Believe me....it is a full time job. Show more Show less
