Hi I'm Chris

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Well, I love being with my family. I love to camp, fish, ride bikes (road and mountain), swim, play harmonica, watch movies, take pictures and listen to all sorts of music. I have moved around a lot throughout my life (10 different states to be exact) and the two places I call home are the Midwest and Idaho. But, really my home is where my wife and kids are. I just started to go back to college online and "it's about time" according to some.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised Mormon, but I was never really converted to the gospel of Jesus Christ until I was in my early 20s. At that time I felt like I needed to make a choice. Either come back to the church and live the way my brothers, sisters and parents were living or, just say good bye to it all and live the way my friends lived. For a little while I felt like I was a battle ground and good and evil were fighting a war. It was not a fun time. At one during the war. I felt peace fall over me and I felt like Jesus was giving me a hug. That was the very moment I knew that this church is true and that is why I am still a member of it.

How I live my faith

I live my Faith the best I can every day.

What do Mormons believe happens to us after we die? What do Mormons believe about life after death?

Chris
We continue to live on as spirits waiting for the second coming of the Lord when we will be joined once again with our bodies. After death we can be with our family members that have passed before us and we can also live forever with our spouse. Show more Show less

Why do Mormons baptize their new members?

Chris
We believe that Jesus was are example. He was baptized by going under the water by John the Baptist and we should also be baptized by going under the water. Baptizing that way also symbolizes being buried and the being reborn or resurrected, just like Christ dying for us and then being resurrected. The death of our old life and the birth of a new one.
