Hi I'm Collin

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a 36 year old husband and father of three children. My family dominates my life and nothing is more important that just being with them. Colorado is my long-time home and I love everything about it. High in the Rockies is where I find it easiest to communicate with the Lord. I don't get to hike and camp as much as I would like, but it truly is a passion of mine. I enjoy playing the guitar. I am still learning, but has become a third passion of mine (first being family, second the outdoors) I love life and want nothing more than to live it to its fullest and do all that I can to bring others along with me for the ride. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is central to my life and all that I do. I strive to make all that I do strengthen my faith in him.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I was born into the church, I have had to find my own way. My convictions are mine, and mine alone. My parents are good, God fearing people, who taught me well the principles of the Gospel. But along the way, I had my own doubts. My own fears, My own struggles. But through it all, I have come to know for myself that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true and that the fullness of His gospel is on the earth and that there are living prophets to lead and guide us on our way. One modern-day prophet stated that even if the Church was not true, Mormonism is still the best way to live.

How I live my faith

In our church, there is no professional clergy. Everything that happens in the church, everything that is accomplished, is done by volunteers. Each person fulfills a responsibility, and as we all work together, the Lords work can roll forward. What better way to draw closer to Him, than to be His servants and help Him with His work. I currently serve as a "Ward Mission Leader" In this capacity, I assist our full-time missionaries (the guys with the white shirts and ties on bikes) in their efforts to share the gospel. I also help other members of the church find ways in which they can share the gospel with their friends and families. On Sundays, I have the opportunity from time-to-time to teach a Sunday School class called "Gospel Principles" where we discus the basic doctrines of our church. But the most important and most basic way I live the Gospel is how I interact with my own family. I love my wife and children. We do what we can to teach our children the principles of the Gospel. We study the Gospel together. And we find ways to serve our friend, neighbors and families with their needs, trying hard to emulate the Savior in all that we do. We are certainly not perfect, but He was. We try to by like Him. We love him. He is our rock and our redeemer.
