Hi I'm Collin

I finally found the source to true happiness. The answers are here.

About Me

I enjoy reading, gardening, and spending time with family. I have been married for 25 years to a wonderful woman. We have 4 children and 3 grand children.

Why I am a Mormon

I strayed from the church at an early age. My life was spent persuing other worldly things until I turned 42. At that point I was caught up in some very destuctive behavior. My life was a mess. I had what I call my "moment of clarity". Finally, I felt my Heavenly Fathers prescence, and recognized my need for His power in my life. I was able to turn my life around and began going to church. The people I met there, loved me back to health, and taught me the gospel with their words and deeds. I have been an active member now for 14 years. I have found that the gospel of Jesus Christ is true. It can and will change lives. You can be healed physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

How I live my faith

I have served in many roles within the church. The best assignment is always the most recent one. I am currently serving as a ward missionary. I have also learned the power of getting involved within your own community. I have served on city budget committees, and also have done volunteer work with Boys and Girls clubs. I currently volunteer at a local homeless shelter. Our help is needed wherever we are and includes all people of every faith.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

WE are family. It's just that simple. We lived with our Heavenly Father prior to coming to this earth and we can return to be with him again. Because of the Atonement of Jesus Christ, our elder brother, each of us can return home and be with our Father and be with our spouses and families that we have associated with here on earth. I know this is true. Show more Show less
