Hi I'm Ellery

I am grateful and happy to be a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in AZ, the third of four children. I am happily married to a wonderful woman and we have six children. I enjoy music, sports, and traveling with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the restored gospel of Jesus Christ on the earth. I know this from answers I have received through sincere prayer. I have received answers confirming that the Book of Mormon is true and it was translated by Joseph Smith by the power of God. I know that God, our Heavenly Father, knows and loves each of us. God continues to guide us through prophets and apostles that serve as special witnesses of Jesus Christ. When I follow the teachings of Jesus Christ in the Bible and Book of Mormon, and also heed the counsel of the prophet and apostles, I feel greater peace and joy in my life. I have learned that stability in our unstable world is achieved when we faithfully follow the true gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing my best to follow the example of Jesus Christ. Just as Jesus Christ taught and exemplified throughout His life, I have learned that true happiness comes when we put the needs of others ahead of our own. Serving others is one of the greatest ways to increase our love for others and our love for God. Service is the antidote for selfishness. I have had many amazing experiences when serving others that have made me better and helped strengthen my faith.
