Hi I'm Rusty

I'm a husband, father of four, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I’ve been married for about 13 years and have 4 young daughters who are very active and full of excitement. I enjoy biking to work, running, swimming, hiking, boating, and generally being outside. I do most of those activities with my wife and children. I also look forward to college volleyball season every year. I’m engaged in planning at a large company and sometimes find balancing the demands of work and family challenging.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and grew up learning about the teachings of Christ. While serving a mission I fell on some challenging times. I decided I needed another confirmation that the things I was teaching were true. I knelt in prayer in my apartment above the busy downtown shops below and openly and vocally prayed. The reassurance I got was unmistakable and a good reminder to me of what I already knew. That gave me the strength I needed to continue. That was several years ago and since then I’ve witnessed many miracles and reminders that this is the true church on the earth today.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by reading in the scriptures and praying daily. I strive to be the best husband and father I can be. I enjoy going to the temple regularly. I stand for my beliefs in my community and at the office.
