Hi I'm Chad

I love backpacking, carpentry, and my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I can't get enough of the outdoors. Backpacking through the wilderness is my favorite hobby. I also play guitar and sing in a band. I'm finishing up an apprenticeship in Carpentry. I love working with my hands. Just recently my wife and I had a son. Out of all the words I could use to describe me I think I like 'Dad' the best!

Why I am a Mormon

While I was finishing up high school I began to see how many different paths a person could take in life. I just wanted a path that would bring me true happiness and peace of mind. I considered my options and decided it was time to know for myself if what I had been taught as a child was true or not. The Book of Mormon was essential for me. I came to know my Savior better because of that book. Through prayer, scripture study, and personal revelation I know that Jesus Christ lives and has restored His church on the earth. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is that church. Every question I've had about this life, my purpose, and where we are heading has been answered. Looking back on the choice to follow this path, I really did find true happiness and peace of mind.

How I live my faith

I'm constantly learning in the church. Right now I help teach the youth in Sunday School. They are in high school so they can be a talkative bunch. I'm leaning to have patience. Those moments when we are all captivated by the lessons and learning together by the Spirit are priceless.
