Hi I'm Louis

I am a dad, a husband, a math teacher, a football coach, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

 I was born in a good Catholic family. I served faithfully as an alter boy for many years. When I went off to college, I continued to attend church. One day, I met a young lady and we began dating. Very quickly, she made it clear to me that she would only marry a member of her faith. I responded in kind. Things came to a head, and one night I was determined to find some direction. I spent nearly an entire night reading scriptures, playing my guitar, and praying. In the morning, I had my answer. I began seeing the missionaries and was baptised. We were married for time and eternity just over a year later in the Dallas Texas Temple. We now have 2 children and have enjoyed the near 22 years we have shred together as husband and wife.

Why I am a Mormon

 The answer I recieved the night I prayed is one that I cannot deny. The experiences I have had since have only strengthened my testimony.

How I live my faith

 I wake up each weekday mornig at 430am. I read scriptures while my kids make their way downstairs out of their bedrooms. Our whole family comes down to what we call our "spiritual room". We read the scriptures together and have family and individual prayer. The reason that we wake so early is that our kids attend early morning seminary. They get ready for seminary and school and are out the door by 545am. I serve as a teacher in our young men's group at church on Sundays and am help with the weekly youth activities each Wednesday.
