Hi I'm Brian

I am the CEO of a small software development company and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a software developmer specializing in embedded real time software, Windows applications, and am fluent in many different programming languages. I have raised 4 children with 2 still in college and 1 serving a mission. I am a big science fiction fan, and enjoy watching older (1970 and 1980) TV series.

Why I am a Mormon

I was never a very devout christian. When I was growing up, I went to church on most sundays, but it was more for my mother than it was for me. After I went to college, I had stopped attending church for the most part. In my 3rd year of college, I met up with two missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. What they had to say interested me, and felt right. As I learned more about the Church, I became aware that I would have to make a choice. I chose to make appropriate changes in my life and follow the Savior Jesus Christ. My life improved for the better almost immediately. The sacrifices and changes I made in my life improved and changed me for the better. It turns out that those things I gave up for the Lord we things I did not miss at all, and the peace and joy and happiness I have received in return more than make up for anything I thought that I would miss. Each day I learn more about what the Lord would have me become. There is enough learning for a lifetime in the gospel. If there is anything that can help save this troubled world, it is the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

The Gospel of Jesus Christ is a lifestyle. It is not something that I do on Sunday. Each day there is something I can do to help make this world a better place. It is by serving others that we find the ultimate happiness in this life. Most people look for benefits for themself in everything that they do. Though the gospel, and by the example of Jesus Christ we learn that real happiness comes as we serve each other and help make others burdens light. I attend church on Sunday as a part of my normal worship, but each day I have opportunities to put into practice the things I learn. Ultimately the true measure of my christianity will not be what I do with the Gospel for myself, but what I do with the Gospel for others. Let your light so shine...
