Hi I'm Chris

I 'm a Mormon, I wasn't my whole life, but I found out why I should be.

About Me

I'm a family man! Currently my sweet wife and I have two handsome little boys. They have filled a void in my heart I never knew I had, but now I couldn't live without them. I currently am full time employed and pursuing my Master's in Business Administration. So as you can imagine, life is busy. But I wouldn't change my life for anything, the Lord has blessed me in so many ways.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a different faith, and my family stopped attending when I was around 6 or 7. I then started to wonder for myself about my relationship with God and decided to find out for myself what He expected of me. I went to every church in my small town and a friend invited me to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and from there I started to meet with the missionaries and learned about the Book of Mormon and about a prophet in these latter days....I saw how much God truly loves all his children, including me, so I asked God in humble prayer if this Church was true, I received my answer from him and here I am! As I asked God the Father, so can you! He is our Father, and as a Father wants to guide us every chance that we will listen, contact the missionaries in your area, learn what we teach, and ask God the Father if its true, and then you'll receive an answer as I did, for He will not lead us astray. :)

How I live my faith

My wife and I actively attend church, we live the Savior's teachings. Keeping the commandments and living in a way that the Holy Ghost can guide and protect us is invaluable to our family. At church I help other men my age to go out and visit families in our ward (congregation). I help to teach lessons on Sundays in church. Its great to be able to share and grow with my family.

How can faith in Jesus Christ influence us in our marriages and family relationships? in our friendships?

Chris
I feel that Jesus Christ should be the center of our lives. My wife and I try to live our lives in harmony with His teachings to the best of our ability daily, and I feel that keeping Him in our hearts and minds help us to love each other more and more everyday. We also learn by His example to love everyone, and that is what we should strive for. Show more Show less

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

Chris
I feel that the most important role either one of us can have is the role of a supportive and loving spouse. From there, our responsibilities to our children, we need to teach them who Jesus Christ is, and what He can do for all of us through His perfect sacrifice He gave us out of love. Show more Show less
