and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love cinema and the arts. I count it as a great blessing that I grew up in a home that exposed me to classic film and literature. I love traveling and learning about the world around me. I am fascinated by other religions, cultures, and customs. I have a passion for stories and creating. I love catching details and enjoying the aesthetics of the world that surrounds me. I try to seek after learning in any form I can, remembering the words of Herbert Spencer, "The great aim of education is not knowledge, but action."

Why I am a Mormon

My family has been in the church for generations. From birth I was taught and raised in the gospel of Jesus Christ, but I cannot claim my family - supportive as they have been - as the source of my faith. I could site many reasons, I make the choice to follow the doctrines of this church each day because of the peace and plenty I find in trying to live like my Savior. I make the choice because of the sort person I want to be for my family and friends. I make the choice because in my searching never have I found such a wealth of truth, because in my life I have felt times when I felt I could not stand on my own. But the real reason - the greatest reason is the deep driving feeling that I can be something more than what I am. That there is a chance for me rid myself of weakness and impurity, a chance to grab hold the things I truly desire until they become mine. As Paul wrote to the church in Rome; "The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us."

How I live my faith

My faith is more than something I do - it is a realization, a way of life. It affects my relationships, my thoughts and actions. It is the way I see the world. It is peace that fills and fuels me. It is choices made every day to walk according to what I have been taught and by I am being taught. I live my faith by praying - talking with God. I live it by reading from the words of his inspired prophets. I live by working to love those around me and to serve them. By dreaming, searching, reaching out, setting goals, and exploring possibilities. By learning about the world around me, by hoping and believing.
