Hi I'm Chris

I am married to my awesome wife and have two great kids. I am serving in the US Air Force. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love spending time with my family and friends. They are the most important part of my life. My wife and I were married in the Albuquerque Temple for time and all eternity in 2004. We have two children. They are great kids and like my wife, mean the whole world to me. I graduated from college with a Bachelor's Degree in business and got my Master's Degree a few years later in Marketing. I like to mountain bike, run, travel and see and try new things. For some reason, I like trains a lot. Cereal is my favorite food and I could eat it for all three meals everyday if I had too. I am a Capt in the US Air Force and love my country and serving the people of not only America, but the world. I am currently serving at Peterson Air Force Base and Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station under NORAD and US Northern Command. Life is good!

Why I am a Mormon

I converted to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints when I was 16. I needed to find the truth for myself and I found it in the Mormon faith. The gospel of Jesus Christ is perfect and has been restored through the prophet Joseph Smith. I had to find this out for myself though and I did that by study, research and most importantly, prayer. I love that we have modern day prophets that are prophets just like Moses and Elijah. I love that the church is organized just like the church was when Christ first came to earth. Most importantly, I love that Jesus died for me so that I can return to live with him and my family one day. The teachings of the church are pure and true. One of the greatest experiences of my life was to share these truths with the people of Ghana when I served my two year mission there!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by always trying to choose the right. I continually attempt to set a good example to those around me. I know I fall short sometimes, but nobody is perfect. It takes a lot of work to live the gospel and adhere to its standards, but the work is sweet and rewarding. I served a full-time mission in Ghana, West Africa which was a defining period in my life that I count as one of my greatest blessings.
