Hi I'm Merrill

I'm a young husband and father. I love my family, basketball, and computers. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I currently live in Texas and I am working an IT job (data warehousing) for a financial services company. I am a husband and father. I have a two girls that have changed my life for the BEST! I love being a parent; my daughters are so much fun! I served a two year mission for my church in India. While I was serving the Lord in India, I can remember a defining moment when I considered the the missionary work I was doing, and pondered why I had left my home and family and committed to being away for 2 years in India. I realized that there was no way I could spend 2 years proclaiming a message, unless I truly believed in the message I was sharing. During my stay, I learned to love the people and food. I served in New Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai, Coimbatore, Hyderabad, and Visakhapatnam. My hobbies include basketball, computers, watering our family garden with my oldest daughter, playing with my kids, and animated family movies!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I fell that it is right. I have practiced the principles I have learned from the Bible, Book of Mormon, and the modern prophets and from that I have seen that those principles bear fruit. In other words, living those principles truly make me feel happy and whole.

How I live my faith

I currently support the children's Sunday School and scouting programs in my area! These programs help prepare today's youth for the challenges they will face now and the years ahead.

What do Mormons believe about "eternal life?"

We believe that Eternal Life means living with Jesus and God the Father in the next life. I know that God wants me and my family to live with Him after we die. Jesus Christ's teachings help me know how I should live my life so that I can reach that goal. Show more Show less
