Hi I'm Christopher Cudlip

I am a Mormon. I was born in Denver, CO, USA. My family lives here. Being a Mormon is the most important thing in my life.

About Me

I am relatively new to the religion, at least I feel new. I was baptized 4 years ago this December and man as the time flown. I enjoy walking, watching TV, writing, working on computers, listening to music, plays and I do like an occasional hike. I dropped out of college. The most important thing people should know about me other than my religious beliefs is that I have schizophrenia. No temporal forces has impacted me as much as mentali illness. It's scary. I know not this trial other than affiction, given to me by Heavenly Father so that may someday whole, I was not raised LDS, my parents were Episcopal and that is the church I went to. After going through a radical change (ongoing) I have accepted Jesus and I worship him and his father. I am somewhat new when it comes to obeying commandments, my mind kept me busy with other things. I have done better-than-the-past recently, of that I find much joy. I wish everyone could feel the joy I have felt - the joy provided to me by the atonement. It takes awhile, though, to get to know new people. I hope the scripture can be made known to all so that each person may be exalted. I truly believe each person is capable of achieving great things.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the Spirit. It has guided me to this place in my life, and it was what what helped me to reach my decision to be baptized. I do love Heavenly Father, and I wanted to please him, but I also went along with what the missionsaries said. I am not sure if I had faith in each lesson, but I knew I wanted to be part of the Church.

How I live my faith

I have just started a callng at my current ward. I must say, I have had trouble fufilling the callings. I have hope I will be able to accomplish this one. I attend church weekly (which is also something new to me), I read the scriptures daily (varying amounts, I am just starting tihing, I pray. All of these have brough blessings and they contribute to my testimony. We must live faith to have faith. The more I do the better I feel and the better I feel the more I do!
