Hi I'm Max Jr

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm been married to my high school sweetheart for 16 years. We have 5 energetic kids who help make life complete and a little crazy too. My hobbies include cycling, running, and playing golf. Most of the time I feel like a regular guy though my close "non-Mormon" friends tell me I'm definitely not "normal" compared to most men my age. It's probably because I don't drink alcohol or allow myself to get caught up in any inappropriate conversations about women. I hope it's more than that though. Though far from perfect I try to live worthy to have the Spirit of Christ with me. I hope that the thing my friends appreciate most about me is a feeling that they're in the presence of someone who is doing his best to follow God.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and was baptized when I was 8 years old. At the age of 17 I decided it was time to make sure that I knew for myself if the church was really true. I knelt in prayer that day and 20 years later I can still remember the feelings I had as if it were yesterday. I guess its because I've had those same feelings a thousand times since that critical turning point in my life. I'm a Mormon because I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints to be true. Everything I see and hear tells me it is so. My life has been far from easy. I haven't always taken the easy route if there's even such a thing. I've suffered loss, had financial difficulties, lost friends, argued with my wife, have had career changes, etc. Through it all however I've never lost my faith. I've always felt a closeness with my Heavenly Father and through the Power of Christ my wife and I have been able to endure all things. Through it all, we've never been without peace and happiness. I also love the principles of self reliance which are taught within Christ's church. Self reliance teaches my children that they need to be responsible for their actions and need to work to be a in a position to help others. Becoming self reliant allows us to do God's work to comfort those in need of comfort.

How I live my faith

Help the neighbor move two tons of gravel into the yard, volunteer to help at the local food bank, give a listening ear to a friend in need, work hard and lead my employees by example. We live in a time of "ME ME ME". By reaching out and sacrificing my time for others I believe I can best live my faith.
