Hi I'm John

I live in Colorado and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 44, I've been married to my wife for 20 years and we have three kids (17; 14 & 11). I love to create. I work as a visual communicator (graphic design), I love art, working with my hands and just about anything that let's me express my creativity. I love music and play guitar in a band with my brother and two friends. We call ourselves Comb Over and we "Cover a lot more than Classic Rock".

Why I am a Mormon

Initially, I became Mormon because my parents joined the faith when I was 8 years old. In the years that followed, my parents and my siblings decided that the Mormon faith was not for them. I however was faced with deciding for myself what I believed and found to be true. I wish I could say that I had a vision or something that confirmed for me that it was true. However, as I suspect most people come to find out, it was not some grand event or aha moment. Rather, it was a series of testimony building events, blessings and answers to prayers. I've had many opportunities along the way to just "slip out of sight" and walk away from the things I had learned. Through it all, I've always had the feeling that it's true and right and I firmly believe that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the one true, full and everlasting gospel of our Savior Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

At the end of the day, I believe that to be a disciple of Jesus Christ, you must serve others. Among other things, that is why we are here on this earth. Jesus blesses us through others and he blesses others through us. I try to have a giving heart and do what I can to help out where I can. I strive to be an example of the things I believe in and realize that as a Mormon, others will judge my religion by the actions I take. Therefore, I work to live my life by a higher standard.
