Hi I'm Chris

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father of three and have been married to the same woman for 31 years. Both my wife and I are in the medical field. I do research from bench to bedside. We have lived in Finland, Sweden, Saudi Arabia and Canada. We are busy people but as my mother always said to me, " I would rather wear out than rust out!" I am Canadian and love to watch hockey, snowboard and mountain bike with my family. I am over 50 years old but hold to the concept expressed by a Canadian singer, Bryan Adams, " Eighteen 'til I die." I am a scouter and have been involved with our Church's youth programs for over 15 years. Life is good!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a Mormon and raised by great parents with excellent values taught in the Church. The youth program and volunteer leaders in the Church guided me through the "great counter culture revolution of late 60' and early 70's." I read the Book of Mormon at age 14, prayed to find a God and help me to know if the Mormon Faith was for me. I got my answer. I have never turned back or lost faith during the tough times in my life. I believe there is a God that really cares about us and wants us to experience and learn from life's trials and joys.

How I live my faith

The Church of Jesus Christ has helped me approach life with zest and enthusiasm. I feel like an ordinary guy faced with the vicissitudes of this life. But being a Mormon helps remind and provides ways for me be a better husband, father and contributor to society. Being a member of this Faith requires me to be self-disciplined by keeping to a strict moral and health code, challenges me to be selfless through opportunities to be a leader in Scouting/youth programs and visit the needy and elderly. I am encouraged as a Father to have a weekly date night with my wife and to be home with my family for one evening a week and to engaged in weekly family activities. As tough as it all sounds, the bottom line is that once you try this life style you will know and feel in your heart it is a good way to live your life.
