Hi I'm Seth

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I work for a public accounting firm doing audit and tax work for construction companies. My wife and I are parents of six children. We are currently raising five of them; our oldest daughter lived only a few minutes past her birth. One of my favorite hobbies is writing. I also enjoy reading, watching television, and sports. I also enjoy budgeting (I am an accountant, after all). I also enjoy doing home improvement projects although I'm not very good at them and there is only so much time and money to go around.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in a Mormon family and attended church on a regular basis as a child. The church has always been a part of my identity. Many of my ancestors were members of the church, and so I want to honor them by continuing to live by the same principles and values that helped them throughout their lives. After graduating high school, I served a two-year mission to the Tacoma, Washington area. I met many wonderful families and people during my time there. The families and individuals who seemed the most happy were those who were committed to the church and lived the teachings of Jesus Christ in their homes. The experiences I had strengthened my testimony of families and the truths of the gospel. I knew that I wanted to raise a family in the same environment, with a spouse who shared the same ideals. These hopes and desires have been realized and we are raising a family of Mormons, who we hope will continue the legacy. I learned that you don't have to settle for less - although the path may be difficult at times - Heavenly Father wants us to be a part of a family and will bless us according to our righteous desires.

How I live my faith

I currently have responsibility for the Sunday School program in my ward, coordinating classes for adults and teenagers. I have enjoyed becoming more familiar with lesson manuals and teaching materials, getting to know some great teachers in my ward, and developing my own teaching skills. I was recently asked to help out with the Boy Scout program. Although I'm not a great scouter, I am excited to learn and have some new experiences. I am also responsible to visit a few families in our ward on a monthly basis. I think it is one of the great programs of the church. When it works properly, every family is assured of regular contact from a member of their congregation. I enjoy getting to know my assigned families and serving them.
