Hi I'm Sean.

I was born in Canada. My family moved to the states when I was 8. I'm a big baseball and football fan.

About Me

I'm forty years old. I'm a father of two beautiful girls. I've been married for ten years to the most wonderful woman. After some challenges with jobs over the past few years we decided that it was time for me to go back to school. So I'm a college student again. I love to spend time with my family. I also enjoy golfing and watching baseball and football. I was born in Canada and we moved to the states in 1978 when I was almost seven.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the LDS church. From a young age I remember going to primary and learning the gospel and gaining a testimony of the Savior Jesus Christ. I enjoyed learning the stories in the bible and the book of Mormon and hearing how faith in Jesus Christ was essential to a happy and fulfilling life. My first memories of my testimony are when my dad would take us to go do service work for some widows in our church and how I didn't always enjoy doing the work but how good it made me feel to be doing something nice for some one in need. My dad told me that was the holy spirit testifying to me that what we had done was pleasing to the Lord. I started to pay attention to when I would feel that way. That is how I gained my testimony of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ and of Joseph Smith and the book of Mormon and the Holy Bible.

How I live my faith

I enjoy serving in the church. As the church has a volunteer clergy and organization its important that each member take their callings seriously and do the best that they can. I have enjoyed teaching the youth and the children in primary. I am a home teacher. I served a mission to South Korea. All of these callings have made me a better person and help me be a better husband and father. I am far from perfect but I do try to help out where I can in the community. Before I got marriedand had children I was a little league baseball coach for five years. Loved it! Some of the best memories that I have.
