Hi I'm Austin

I grew up in the American mid-west. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a happily married, mutliple dog owning, libertarian leaning, book collecting and reading, technologically geeking, lifelong learning, Sunday school teacher and children's hospital employee.

Why I am a Mormon

From my earliest childhood memories, I can remember simply "knowing" that the LDS Church was true. There was never a doubt in my mind. As I grew older and, as most adolescents do, began questioning the veracity of everything, I wondered if the Book of Mormon really was the word of God afterall. Through much prayer, and continued striving to keep the commandments, I came to a renewed knowlege from the Holy Spirit that the Book of Mormon did contain the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ and that the LDS Church was in fact His Church restored to the earth again. Since then my faith has been reaffirmed again and again through personal manifestations of His Spirit as I have daily placed my faith in Him and His atonement for the grace sufficient to make it through each day.

How I live my faith

I teach Sunday school each week, I also visit two families in our congregation each month to deliver a short message and see if there is anything I can do to help them.
