Hi I'm Heath Austin Howard

I love to wakeboard, workout, play sports and watch college football. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father of three beautiful children that definitely keep my life interesting. I am currently working on completing my MBA and enjoy the challenges of juggling work, school and home life. I enjoy working out and competing in sports. I especially enjoy College Football and look forward to watching my Utah Utes compete in the Pac-12 this year.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because of the joy and happiness that it brings in to my home. The Church provides great support and a proven outline for raising a successful family. Through service opportunmities, temple attendence, church meetings, etc, I learn how to become more like my Savior and this helps me to be the kind of father that I want to be. Through temple ordinances I am able to be sealed to my family for time and all eternity. This gives me peace and comfort knowing that these valuable family relationships will extend even after death.

How I live my faith

I do my best to live my faith. I try to remember to read the scriptures daily both by myself and with my family. As a family we read right before we go to bed and this brings a great spirit into our home and helps the kids calm down for bedtime. I accept assignments from church leaders so that I can help other members of the church the best i can. I also take time to say prayers each day and enjoy the opportunity I have to speak directly to my Heavenly Father.

To what do you attribute the growth of the Church?

Heath Austin Howard
The growth of the church is due to the importance we place on families. The core values taught by the church and having a living prophet on the earth provide directions and substance to our lives. Show more Show less
