Hi I'm Seth

I'm one of a large family of Mormons, all brought up in the Church and all of Mormon Pioneer heritage.

About Me

I am a happy husband and father. I enjoy the majority of things that many men my age do; sports, video games, target shooting, barbecuing, movies and much more. One of my favorite things however is gardening. There is a lot of satisfaction in seeing something grow and produce from the ground up. My wife and I have planted a garden almost every year since we were first married and currently have plans to expand our garden next year. We are certainly looking forward to a new challenge. I think that gardening is such a satsifying pastime for me because of the obvious parallels I find in it to my life. Patience, nurturing, nourishing, and attention are all key aspects in my development as a father and I learn and re-learn them every summer .

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon not because I was born into it, but because I had my own personal conversion. I can never forget the night that I decided to put the Lord to test, knelt down on my bed and asked not only for a confirmation that the LDS Faith was where I needed to be, but also of the veracity of Joseph Smith's mission and the truth of the Book of Mormon. The answer I received is something that I have never been able to adequately explain in words, but also something that I will never be able to deny. It was not miraculous, and I did not see visions or angels, but I was touched deeply by the experience and am grateful every day for it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith as best I can, understanding that I am not only capable of making LOTS of mistakes, but commit them on a very regular basis. The comfort I receive lies in knowing that I can always correct these mistakes through proper repentance and discipline. I contribute actively in my personal calling, I participate in ward activities, I visit with friends and acquaintances often, and I talk with anyone who will listen about the joys that I know and love.
