Hi I'm Russell

I'm TV news reporter, I love live music, I'm crazy about Texas, I'm going to be a dad and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I play for work. Whether it's crossing the state of Texas telling stories about the interesting things I find or just covering the news in central Texas. Telling stories

Why I am a Mormon

For me it just makes sense. I know that God loves all his children and wants us to be happy and return to live with him. I know that I'm happiest when I'm doing the things that I know are right. God has a plan for us. We learn about it from the scriptures and living prophets (just like people always have). I don't know everything but I don't need to but, I know the Jesus Christ died so that i can be forgiven for my sins.

How I live my faith

I just try to do my best. I take life one day at a time and try to do better each day. Some days it doesn't work out that way and that's ok.

What is being a Mormon like?

Russell
It's not always easy and it's a big commitment. Meetings, personal and family study, and special assignments can add up to a lot of time. That said the perspective that comes from knowing our Heavenly Father's plan makes the sacrifices seem small. I know as I put others first though service I'm happy and life seems more manageable.
