Hi I'm Pace

I'm a mathematician and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've always been interested in truth, and so it was natural for me to study math. I also like playing computer games with my family. I have three beautiful daughters, one son on the way, and a wonderful wife.

Why I am a Mormon

I think I've always believed in God, but there came a time when I really wanted to know if He was there and would talk to me. So I sincerely prayed to Him, asking to know if He really was there and would tell me. After asking this question, one day I was listening to some music about Jesus being our savior, and I felt a warm all over. At the same time, it felt like my mind was being opened and God told me that Jesus really was the savior of the world. Later, wanting to know which church was true, I spent months asking to know the truth. One evening I told God I was going to pray until I knew for certain. Hours later, when I could barely keep myself from falling asleep I admitted defeat and said, "God, you win. But you know I will be back tomorrow to ask again." The next day, when hearing the story of Joseph Smith's first vision, again I was filled with warmth, and once again my mind was opened and I was told by God that the experience was true.

How I live my faith

The central aspect of my faith is how I interact with my family. We believe that we can be together forever. This means I try to develop relationships with them that are spiritual and full of love. I also serve in my church by scheduling appointments with our local Bishop.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Pace
I think the best way to increase faith in Christ is to emulate His life, and actually do what Jesus asked us to do. Be kind to others. Love one another! Forgive, be a peacemaker, and pray to God with all your heart. The times I've felt my faith strengthened the most is when I repent. I ask God to forgive me, and I know that because Jesus died for me my sins can be washed away. Show more Show less
