Hi I'm Rolland

I am a family man. I love the outdoors and outdoor activities. I am nostalgic and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in an area of Mesa Arizona known as Lehi. Probably the best area to grow up that there is. We rode horses, swam in the irrigation ditches, went hunting from our house and rode dirt bikes around the neighborhood. I spent 2 years as a missionary in the Lansing Michigan Mission. I graduated from college with a degree in Accounting. I married a gorgeous woman and we have 4 amazing children. I love being outside. The mountains, Lake Powell, the beach or the desert. In these places I can see the magnificence of God's work and feel solitude. Outdoor activities are my favorites too. Riding dirt bikes, hunting, hiking or just spending time with my wife and children....these are some of the best things in life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because of my upbringing, for which I am eternally grateful. My parents made sound decisions that enabled me to have God's influence throughout my entire life However, I am more than just a mormon, I am a Disciple of Jesus Christ. I have to read the scriptures and pray, repent of my sins and try to be faithful to God's commandments in order to develop faith. I study the words of Jesus Christ from the Bible, The Book of Mormon and from the words of his Prophets that live today.

How I live my faith

I have spent much of my time working with the youth in my area, especially those boys that are in their late teen years. I love to see their faith develop and grow. I try to be a voice of warning to let them know the hazards that they can face. I love to see the "light go on" in their lives. They live in a tough world and I am amazed at how they come through it all with faith and resolve to do what is right. I love to teach and be challenged to bring the teachings of Christ to the youth in a way that helps them to deal with the everyday battles that they face. I want them to know peace. I try to live as a Disciple of Christ would live. That is, being kind, serving others and working to be a more faithful follower of my Savior.
