Hi I'm Chris

Being a Mormon is just like having a personal counselor in life you can do what they say or not, but following is just better.

About Me

I LOVE RAQUETBALL! I am 4th of 6 children. Even though I am from Arizona, it wasn't until recently that I went to the Grand Canyon and hiked in down to phantom ranch and back out again. I loved it! I plan on running a triathlon in the near future, and I do things like that because I am amazed at the capacities of the human body and how that correlates to our soul's wellbeing. I have worked on construction crews specifically in roofing, vinyl siding, painting, and landscaping. I have also worked with my dad since my youth in... digging, electrical, plumbing, heating and swamp coolers, and other household skills. I am glad he let me work with him now because it will help me in the future when I get married. As for now I am going to college studying Mechanical Engineering. I have been in boy scouts, and like raquetball love to play almost all sports. The only exception for now is golf, because of how hard it is. :) I am terrible at it.

Why I am a Mormon

I feel that religion should not be seen as something to dominate our lives, but just a "smart" way to live our lives, doing the right things because they help us feel happy.

How I live my faith

As a salesman during the summer I drove by a lady with a flat tire on the side of the road. At first in my mind I said, "I don't have time, I have lots to do." But I had been trying to find ways to help others and knew from experience that I would feel better after helping. I was having a hard time, as anyone that has been a salesman knows is common, and so I figured it would be better to at least try. So I stopped the car off to the side, and justified as I got out, "She probably already has people coming to help her and will just turn me away anyways." When i came closer to her i asked her if I could help in some way, and when she looked at me, it seemed at first that she was going to tell me she was fine. She did a double take and in an exasperated voice between smokes said " Well... yes. " I was also taken aback. We went on to fix the tire together, and in all the action took about an hour of my day. I was sad for the time i had lost, but the accomplished feeling, more that overpowered the sadness. I realized then that we are NOT too busy to help others, and if we think they will just tell us no, why not do it? The worst that could happen is that it would be true and you can continue on your way. But your day is bound to go better if you do, and others may "pay it forward".
