About Me

I have no idea what to write here. I don't want to type in a bunch of boring details about where I grew up, went to school or where I work now so maybe I'll mention some things that I think make me weird. - I can listen to classical music and R&B but not country. - I've never been to Disney Land. My favorite vacation spot is Idaho. - I'm short and chubby but I actually like jogging. - I also like to garden. - I love playing sports but I rarely watch them. - I love boats but not the ocean. (JK, that's from "Groundhog Day") - I actually like those smelly lotions that my wife buys at the mall. - And just so you don't jump to conclusions about my gender orientation, my favorite video game is Modern Warfare 2.

Why I am a Mormon

Because I was raised by Mormon parents. I learned enough about the history of the LDS church and its beliefs that I came to the conclusion, as many others do, that this religion is either the biggest hoax on planet earth because of the claims it makes or it's true. And after all the studying and praying, I came to the conclusion that it's true. Plus, it's nice to know that when my wife is sick, people will come over and give us casseroles.

How I live my faith

As best as I can with my limited abilities :-) My wife and I actually teach a Sunday school class of about six 15 year olds. This year we're covering the Old Testament. I never realized how crazy the OT is until I had to teach it to a group of teenagers.

What do Mormons believe about the Bible? Do they regard it as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Yes, I do believe the Bible is the word of God. Well at least most of it. I'm still up in the air about parts of the Songs of Solomon. It gets a little too PG-13 in there if you ask me. Show more Show less
