Hi I'm Chris

I'm a child of god, a husband, and a father. I work in IT as a Sr Businsess Analyst and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in McMinnville, Oregon, but grew up most of my life in Utah. I still consider the pacific northwest my home. I served a mission in Jamaica. I am currently working on my Batchelors of Science in Information Technology. I love to cook, play volleyball, work on computers or electronice, and volunteer with my local police department or Amateur Radio Emergency Services (ARES). I currently work as a Sr Business Analyst. My wife and son are the love of my life.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were both baptized and became Mormons when they were younger. I grew up in a home that the gospel of Jesus Christ was taught often. I grew up learning the stories of Jesus and going to church every Sunday. As I grew up I realized that I wanted to know for myself if God and Jesus Christ were real and not just believe in them. I studied the Bible and The Book of Mormon and prayed to my Heavely Father to know for myself if these things were true. I got an overwhelming calm feeling that these things were true. From that day forward I decided to serve a mission and share the message of the restored gospel to all that would listen. After my mission I have had several opportunities to share my beliefs with those that are not of my faith. I love the peace and happiness that comes from knowing that my Heavenly Father loves me and that he has provided a way for me to return to live with him. The gospel of Jesus Christ answers qustions that no other religion in the world can answer like: Where did we come from?, Why are we here on earth?, and Where are we going after we die?

How I live my faith

I try to make Jesus Christ the center of my life and serving others really helps me focus on others instead of myself. I currently volunteer with my local police department so that the sworn officers can do what they are paid for. I also volunteer as an Amateur Radio operator. I have helped with serveral small emergencies in my community.
