Hi I'm Immanuel

I grew up in Hawaii. I enjoy hiking, surfing, and reading. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was the first individual in my immediate family to get an undergraduate and graduate degree. I spent much of my high school life preparing academically for college so that I could make myself eligible to be admitted to college. Long hours studying mathematics and science prepared me to be competitive in the employment market. Now, I can enjoy my work and a balanced life by participating in mentoring younger children.

Why I am a Mormon

I had the opportunity to grow-up in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I reached a point in my life where I was required to study the teaching of my church. I began by identifying that what I had learned up to that point were all good things. I generally knew that it was truth. However, through thoughtful study and inquiry, I began to confirm that general belief through application. I am Mormon because it makes sense and I have been able to grow in my understanding of God. I feel that it requires sacrifice of time, moral commitment, and tithing. I feel that it is a straight-forward religion that can provide me with more joy, peace, and answers to questions that I have about the world around me and God's purposes.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by providing my employer with a full-days work, bringing integrity to the engineering work that I do, and by contributing to the community. I mentor high school age youth, helping them build confidence and accomplish various milestones that will ultimately strengthen their academic endeavors.

What do Mormons believe about the nature of God?

We believe that God is the father of our spirits and he really does care about individuals. Although, the difficulties of life make it hard to understand, we believe that God is not forceful, but loving and provides his children with joy and love contrary to pain and fear. God really is subtle, and peaceful. He is not noisy or confused. He is orderly and majestic. Show more Show less
