Hi I'm Charlie

I was born and currently live in Arizona, but have lived all over the U.S. I'm a father of 3 and I love sports. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father of 3 with another on the way. I love sports, but watching and playing. I work in the IT field and enjoy problem solving. When I'm not working I help my wife prepare our home for our daughter who will be here soon. Life is busy.

Why I am a Mormon

All though I was rasied by LDS parents, I have gained a testimony of the gospel on my own. As I prepared to searve a mission at 19 I took the challenge that I would be asking of others. I read/studied the Book of Mormon and then prayed with real intent to find out if it was true. I can still remember the warm, comforting feeling of the spirt that day, almost 20 years ago. Just recently I visited the Sacred Grove where Joseph Smith went to pray for answers to his questions. Just being in that setting re-confirmed to me the truthfullness of the restoration of Christ's chuch on the earth. I love this church, I love the people in it. Without the gospel of Jesus Christ, I could not be whole.

How I live my faith

In our local ward I have a few responsibilites. My wife and I teach a Sunday school class to about 10 16 year olds. I think we learn just as much from them as they do from us. It is great to be able to remember back to the trials I had at their age and assure them that they can successfully overcome any challenge. I also have 2 families that I visit each month, with a teaching companion. It is our goal to share with them a message from the Presidency of the church. It is also our responsability to be available to assist these families in anything they may need.
