Hi I'm Chris

I'm energetic and funny. I love to make people laugh, meet new people, and travel. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Daddy of 5 awesome kids. 3 Girls and 2 Boys. I am married to my beautiful wife Melissa who is an awesome mom and my perfect life partner! I'm a self employed internet marketing expert. I love playing video games and taking long vacations...California Baby! :)

Why I am a Mormon

My Dad left my Mom when I was 2 years old. I grew up in a pretty bad situation. I was very rebellious growing up and I got in to a lot of trouble. My Grandmother was what I call a "Die Hard" Mormon! She was amazing! Living every day doing service for someone else. She was truly a great example to us. Unfortunately growing up I was very angry and not ready for the Gospel. I did everything wrong that a young boy could possibly do and I went astray. Fortunately I survived those years and slowly began to grow up. I met my wife Melissa and we fell in love. We got a huge surprise that we were going to have a baby and immediately my life was changed forever. After my son was born my thoughts began to turn to my Heavenly Father. I began to realize that love I have for my family is the same love that my Heavenly Father has for me. Every Sunday I walk through those Chapel doors and the Spirit I feel is very strong. You can't find this feeling anywhere else. It can't be bought. It can't be manufactured. I love my Heavenly Father and I know he loves me. And one day I will return to live with him and my family for eternity.

How I live my faith

I got my first calling to be a Primary Teacher. I have to admit that I was very nervous to take a calling. Especially like this. But I know that the Lord has a plan for me and in that plan I have responsibility. I accepted my calling and have enjoyed serving ever since! My kids are amazing and teaching is so rewarding! I love being able to give something back because I feel like I have received too many blessings to be able to count. I enjoy helping with service projects! Words can not describe the feeling you get when you are in a position to help someone in need! Boy is the Spirit strong when you are doing work for someone else! I strive to live my life the way my Heavenly Father wants me to live. I attend Church every Sunday, I try and stay away from things that will bring me away from the Lord. Yeah, I make mistakes...I'm human...but I love my Heavenly Father and want to make him happy no matter what.
