Hi I'm Zac

I was a military brat that has lived all over the U.S. I’m a full-time sales professional, student, and family man. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I’ve lived in most corners of the United States at one time or another as my dad was serving in the Air Force for 20 years. Because of that, I get fairly uncomfortable staying in one place for too long, although I’ve really taken a liking to living in Arizona for these past 3 years. I enjoy getting out and playing sports like soccer, basketball, and softball, even if my body doesn’t want to perform like I remember it performing when I was a bit younger. I’ve got 4 children under the age of 8 that keep me and my wife pretty busy (and sometimes make us want to rip out our hair). I’ve recently gone back to school to get a master’s degree, which has taken the rest of whatever little spare time that I had. All of that said, I very much enjoy life right now, despite the down economy, despite life’s little frustrations, and despite a lack of free time.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up a Mormon, raised by a mother that had come from a Mormon family and a father who became a member in his twenties. I’ve remained an active member of this church because I’ve come to know of the blessings that have come into my life and the lives of those I know and love as a result of living my religion. The things that I have learned as I’ve studied scripture and been taught have changed me and the course of my life. My Heavenly Father has been a true guiding light in my life. It’s given me unspeakable comfort to know of Him and his plan for me and my loved ones. All of this is enough, but I also love the life-long friendships and associations I’ve made through my participation in my church.

How I live my faith

Most of all, I try to treat others kindly and with respect; I guess you could say I try to practice the “golden rule”, as cheesy as that sounds. It’s also important to me to stay open to situations around me and help out others when I can, whether that is helping someone unload a moving truck or helping out my community by coaching youth sports teams. I’ve also had the opportunity within my church to work with the young men in scouting and with their general spiritual development. I’m currently teaching a Sunday school-type class for younger children (6 year olds).
