Hi I'm Francis

I grew up with 5 brothers and no sisters. I love sports. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was raised in Mesa, Arizona in a large family of boys. Me and my brothers loved to play sports and spend time with friends. After graduating from high school, I was called to serve a mission in Portland Oregon. I loved the people and the time I spent there. Shortly after I got home, I married the love of my life. I worked for a while and then decided to start my education. On the way to earning my Bachelors Degree in Business Management and a Masters Degree in Adult Education, we started our family. We now have 5 beautiful children and they keep us very busy. I am a corporate trainer and I teach online college courses.

Why I am a Mormon

There is nothing that means more to me than my testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is who I am. I can't think of anything in my life that isn't affected by my membership in the church and my relationship with the Savior. I know that the principles of the gospel keep me safe. I enjoy spending time with my wife and children. I want to be a better husband and father and the gospel shows me how to do that. In living the gospel I have found happiness that I know I would not be able to find anywhere else.

How I live my faith

Although I am not perfect, I try to show my faith in my actions towards others. I believe in the power of example. I feel that if I live the gospel, then others will see it and ask me questions. I know this is true because it has happened to me on numerous occasions. I love it when people assume I am a Mormon. To me that means that I am doing something right.
