Hi I'm Albert

I grew up in Oregon. I love music. I'm a son, brother, husband and father. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I graduated college a year ago and am now deciding what to do with my life. I've sold insurance for a year and tried a hand at teaching high school students, and now I'm probably going to go into another profession. I enjoy hiking, fishing, camping, and most things outdoors. I also play several musical instruments and enjoy literature. I have a wife and one-year old son who I love very much. My all-time favorite food is chex muddy buddies.

Why I am a Mormon

My favorite teachings of Christ's church center around His sacrifice for us and what it means in our everyday lives. To me, it means that I can be forgiven of my mistakes. Even more, it means that I can live together forever with my family. This Gospel gives me direction and purpose in my daily endeavors. It helps me to be a better father and husband. It helps me deal with the difficulties of life. It helps me face an uncertain future with faith in a living and very certain God. In short, Christ's Church helps me in everything I do. With it, everything makes sense. Without it, nothing does.

How I live my faith

I try to be like Jesus everyday. That takes some intense practice and study to do well. To help me, I study the scriptures alone as well as with my wife and little boy often. I also enjoy the teachings and examples of modern prophets and apostles. These men are not perfect, but they are great examples to me as I try to follow the Savior. I have spent much of my time of service in the Church as a teacher of youth and young adults. I very much enjoy learning of the Savior and then sharing the knowledge I obtain with others. It is remarkable to me how much I am taught by those I teach. Gospel learning is a lifelong process, but we do not learn it alone. We have friends, family, and fellowmen all over the world who teach us and bless and enrich our lives. I try serve others, but receive so much more in return.
