Hi I'm Randall

I live in Minnesota. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

About Me

I was raised in Wisconsin and I learned to love the cool northern forests, lakes, and ample amounts of snow. Now I am a husband and father of 7 children. I am a medical software developer and registered nurse in Minnesota. What I enjoy most is spending time with my family. I also like to run, cycle, play basketball, and play the trumpet.

Why I am a Mormon

Jesus is the Son of God. He suffered and died for my sins. I feel this with certainty. I have seen the cleansing power of his atonement in my life and in the lives of others. I have felt strong feelings from God that the teachings that we find in the Bible and the Book of Mormon are true and essential to our happiness. One of the many things that tell me that Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is lead by the Savior is that the Church embraces continuing revelation from God. Teachings of the prophets found in the scriptures are taught along with new revelations from living prophets. Essential teachings that address problems in our day, such as being morally clean and protecting the family unit, are presented regularly. Since I joined the church, the benefits to my family have been too great to measure.

How I live my faith

Our Savior taught by example that we live our faith by loving and serving people. The Church of Jesus Christ has been a great help in my life to find ways to serve people. I have served on a volunteer basis as a youth leader, scoutmaster, scout committee member, and teacher. I have participated in a regular outreach program where we visit the elderly and sick in the community. The church regularly organizes community service projects, and I enjoy bringing my family to work at these. The most important work we can do is to make a difference in an individual's life on a regular basis -- one person reaching out to another, unseen by the world.
