Hi I'm Graham

I am a student in mechanical engineering. I am a husband and a father of one. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father of one child, and currently attending an university studying mechanical engineering. Growing up I was alway active in sports and scouts. I played baseball in high school. My senior year of high school I earned my eagle scout. After graduating high school, I served an LDS mission in Micronesia for two years. About 10 months after returning from my mission, I met an amazing woman who now is my wife. I quit school while she finished her graduate school. She now gets to work and support me while I finish my degree. Now I spend my time studying, playing with my boy, and enjoying the remaining time with my wife.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know it's true. Life is full of so many decisions. Every day we have to decide what we are going to do, both big and small. Its so hard to know if we are making the right decisions. I still sometimes have doubts if I am pursuing the right education, although I do enjoy what I am learning. Despite all the decisions that have to be made, there is one thing that I always know. That is the gospel of Jesus Christ, and the teachings of the Mormon Church. I know that when I follow these principles, I am following the correct path, and will be lead to happiness. I find so much comfort and peace knowing that I am at least doing that part of my life correctly. I know that because of the promised blessings of following Christ and His gospel, I will live with my family beyond death. I know that this life has a purpose, and being a Mormon enables me to live to the very highest potential I have.

How I live my faith

I have the great privilege of working with young men in the scouting program ages 14-16. Growing up scouts played a big role in my life, and many of the skills I learned there I use daily, and hope to be able to help the young men I work with learn the same skills. I try to do many little things as well to help me live my faith, such as praying every morning and night, and reading the scriptures in the morning. This helps me throughout the day in making sure I am following and acting on what I believe. When I am home, I try my best to help my family be happy.
