Hi I'm Perry

I'm a creator, a husband, a father, an innovator, and a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a software engineer. I started writing programs at age 8. I write mobile applications for smart phones and audit software for state governments (yes... really exciting!). I'm a husband to an incredible wife and a father of 4 outstanding children. I tell stories to my kids on the fly to get them to go to bed at night. I was a gymnast, I love pretending like I can surf (though I really can't). I love hiking and running. I love the smell of book stores and new computers just unpacked. I love reading, playing board games with my family (we get a little wild), and building just about anything I can think of. I have a philosophy that I can fix anything, even if it's impossible; I'll find a way with God's help. I love the blue sky; it reminds me of our potential as God's children... limitless.

Why I am a Mormon

Living the gospel of Jesus Christ is the most rewarding and satisfying experience. From the scriptures I learn to become a responsible husband, father, son, brother, and friend. I've learned that I'm an imperfect person with a perfect loving, tender Father in Heaven. I don't just believe in God, I know He lives, and sent His son Jesus Christ for me and everyone else.

How I live my faith

I believe that living my life in the footsteps of Jesus Christ's teachings will not only bring light to my own life, but strength and inspiration to those around me. I give everyone the benefit of the doubt, because I'm a very imperfect person myself, and I know how it feels to be judged by others. I want to lift other people up to what I see in them, and I find great joy in the process of doing it. With the help of God I've accomplished things I never thought I could, as simple as they may have been for others. I believe that a smile or kind word can change someone's life and serving them can save both your souls.

In whom should we have faith?

We should have faith in our brother, Jesus Christ, in our Father, God, and each other. Show more Show less
