Hi I'm Justin

I grew up in Aloha, OR. I broker lumber for a living. I love my family and enjoy riding my elecrtic bike and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

i'm a father of four children agest 11 to 3 years, and have been married to a wonderful wife for almost 14 years! I grew up in Oregon and enjoy all the great opportunities Oregon provides from hunting, fishing, skiing, beach walks, biking and using an umbrella in the rain. LOL!. I love almost all sports, especially college sports (footall and basketball are my favs), and thoroughly enjoy the outdoors, relaxing in the hot tub and playing games with my children. i have been a lumber broker for over 12 years. Notwithstanding the amazing green colors and lush vegatation that Oregonians see daily, my selfish desire for all Oregonians is that we would see the sun about twice as much as we do!!!!! My recent passionate hobby is riding my electric powered Stealth Bomber Mountain Bike!. I love life, playing and working hard all week and I love being a Mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

Simply put, i am a Mormom because i have found out for myself that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is Jesus Christs' church! I love His teachings that can be found not only in the Bible but also in the Book of Mormon, which truly is another testament of Jesus Christ. For me, having a second witness of what our Savior wants us to do helps me to guide and direct my family on the paths that He wants us to be on is key. Our family is stronger, happier and the pure love of Christ can be found in our family because we are Mormons following His Plan of Happiness!!!!

How I live my faith

the most basic way I live my faith is by following the example of Jesus Christ as best i can. It's not always easy, but i feel great as i try to do my best. The Savior taught us how we should live and His most effective way of teaching was through his actions of service including the most perfect example of service and sacrfice through His atoning for our sins and mistakes.

What is being a Mormon like?

it's not much different than being like everyone else! Although i do feel a greater sense of responsiblity to help and serve others as much as possible. As a Mormon i still love to go to the movies, i can't get enough of ESPN i thoroughly enjoy going to dinner with family and friends and like most everyone else i can't wait for my families' next vacation trip! Perhaps the hardest part about being Mormon is living up to my potential that my Savior Jesus Christ expects of me! THANK GOD that He gave his Son Jesus Christ so i can ask for forgiveness when i don't live up to those expectations (it happens daily :-). Show more Show less
