Hi I'm Joe

I'm a Mormon. I was raised in a Catholic home in Texas and joined the church in 2001.

About Me

I am a father of 3 wonderful children and have been married to my beautiful wife Heidi for 21 years. I enjoy playing golf, reading, and hopefully see the Cowboys and Longhorns win on the weekends!

Why I am a Mormon

My wife originally joined the church about 3months before I did. It was a very difficult decision for me to make as I had beren a member of the catholic church all my life, along with all of my immediate family and relatives. I initially resisted the teachings of the missionarries as they were providing lessons to my wife and kids, but could not resist and deny the message they were drelivering. We were introduced to the church by some very good friends who were our neighbors in California and we still stay in contact with each other even though we have moved twice since then. Once I allowed myself and my heart to open up to the messasges of the church, I soon realized how wonderful the blessings of our Heavenly Father can be. Joing the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints while a very difficult decision, was the best decision I have ever made for not only myself, but my family and those that will follow after me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following the principles of the church as put forth in the Book of Mormon as well as the bible. I try every day to be a better man than I was the day before, as well as a better husband and fsather. In today's world, this is not always an easy thing to do, and I am not always successful. However, I know that by the Atonement of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ that I can be redeemed and forgiven of my sins and continue to strive and be as much like our Savior as I csn.
