Hi I'm Russell

I'm a husband. I'm a primary chorister. I'm a musician. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a student right now. I'm a really big fan of school. I love the moment in learning when everything just clicks. I am a somewhat normal guy and I like to have a lot of fun. I like dances and singing and playing the guitar. I have been through a lot of trials and ups and downs in my life, just as everyone has. I know that Christ is my Savior because of it. I have a biggish family of 7 kids and am a middle child; therefore I really like attention because middle children are neglected. lol. I really love life. I am was a missionary for two years in Ontario and now I'm married to my sweetheart.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church but really needed to find out for myself if it was true. Though I new all the stories and could even find most of them in the Book of Mormon, I had never read the whole thing myself. At a low point in my life I decided to start reading. I know that it is true and I know that I would never have made it through without the closeness to my Savior which the Book of Mormon provided. Since then I have only increased my testimony. I have learned that we don't just come to know Christ when we sin. In fact, this is probably the least preferred way. We come to know Christ in our everyday lives, like when it's hard and we are down and out. But even better we come to know Christ through his Spirit. I know that He lives and I love Him.

How I live my faith

I pray and read my scriptures everyday and I go to church every Sunday. This may not seem like much, but its the basis for me to live my religion in every other aspect. I strive to talk to someone about the gospel everyday, whether or not it is a member of our Church. It's really fun at school. I listen to good music and I strive keep my thoughts clean and pure.
