Hi I'm Trent

I was raised a member of the Church in Normal, IL. I love my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My lovely wife and I have two happy and energetic young boys and we love spending time with them. Being a good husband and father is always what I've wanted to do when I grew up. I also love being active, watching sports, numbers, music, learning, listening to people, and teaching my children.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in a good-sized family in a small community in Illinois. I grew up very aware of the differences between the life my family chose to live and the life others were living. Family and good friends helped me gain experience in understanding of God's plan and purpose for us on this earth, but there came a time when I needed to find out if it what I'd learned was real. I studied and prayed to discover if what I'd been taught for so many years was true and I received confirmation that it was. Many years have passed since then, but my faith is frequently reinforced with additional knowledge and experiences. The answers to life's difficult questions are provided in the gospel of Jesus Christ and through living prophets. Our Father in Heaven loves us and wants us to be happy in this life and the next.

How I live my faith

I have worked with the young men in our local congregation for several years. We have fun camping, serving, and learning together, focusing on making good choices and reaching out to help others. I enjoy contributing to the spiritual side of their lives and hope that I always show a proper example of living the gospel like I was shown growing up.
