Hi I'm Jay

I'm a Mormon. I am married with three children. I work as a financial consultant.

About Me

I am married to a wonderful wife and have three children. My wife and I have lived all over the country. I grew up in Utah but served a two year mission in Taiwan R.O.C. where I learned Mandarin Chinese. I have also lived in China and traveled throughout Asia. I went to college in Utah where I studied accounting, met my wife, and had other great experiences. I sang in various choirs including the college men's choir. I enjoy spending time with family and friends. When I can I also like to play soccer, mountain bike, and snowboard.

Why I am a Mormon

It is difficult to describe how important the church is to me in my life because I can't imagine not being a member of the church. It is a vital source of strength and peace to me now and an assurance of eternal joy and happiness in the life to come. Through obedience to the principles of the gospel I have been blessed in countless ways. I see how the teaching of the gospel are also blessing the lives of my children as well. Because of its teachings I understand the greatest joys in life come from our families and obedience to the teachings of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I try to act how the Savior would want me to be. He has asked us to be like Him and follow his example. I try to be a loving father and good husband because I love my family and I know that is what He would want me to be. I also participate in regular church meetings, attend the temple, and serve as I am appointed to various callings in the church. Currently I work with missionaries to share the gospel with others.
