Hi I'm Luis

I grew up in Chico, California where I enjoy the outdoors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a dad of two beautiful daughters and two dare devil sons that are the joys of my life. My wonderful wife is a hard working stay at home mom that takes care of all of us. I love playing soccer, running and anything Apple. My friends call me the Apple tree because I have every Apple gadget that is out. I also enjoy camping, bike riding, swimming and anything that allows me to spend time with my wonderful family.

Why I am a Mormon

As a young man I was raised by parents that were Mormon and was raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. As a young man my parents allowed me to visit other denominations with friends and family members that allowed me to see how other religions practiced their faith. I felt that they all had good principles but each lacked something different and I received strong confirmation through answer to prayers and experiences that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the true Church of our Heavenly Father upon the earth. I Love that the Church invites all to find out through prayer and study that the Church is true on their own. I would invite you to do the same.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving as the Lord asks through my local leaders. Recently my family and I were asked to serve the Spanish speaking population of the Chico and Orland area. I feel that it is important to attend church meeting every Sunday so that we can strengthen the understanding and relationship that we need to continually work on with our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I love that as a Mormon we have the duty of visiting our fellow brothers and sisters of our congregation in their homes to share special messages with them and find way to serve them. I also currently have the opportunity to work closely with the Bishop of our congregation were I help scheduling those that desire to council with him. In the past I have worked with the Youth in the Boy Scout Program and I alway enjoy the opportunity to do outings with the youth.

How can we stop the spread and influence of pornography?

We need to avoid as if it were a plague that would kill us because it will kill our spirit if we allow ourselves to view such material. Show more Show less

What is the priesthood?

It is the power and authority of God given to men to serve others. With the priesthood it is intended to bless the lives of others. With the priesthood men that are worthy may place there hands on those that request a blessing and we can ask for power from heaven to come upon them as the Lord inspires. Show more Show less
