Hi I'm Karl

I am a father of three special needs children, a computer geek, graphic artist and I'm proud to be a Mormon.

About Me

I am married to a wonderful woman going on 20 years and have four wonderful children. Three of them have special needs from autism to Aspergers Syndrome to epilepsy. My life has been full of ups and downs, but I would not trade it for anything as I feel it has made me a stronger person. I have been in computer network systems support for the last 18 years and have been doing graphic art for many of those years, as well. I enjoy what I do in my work life and my church life. I try and live the Gospel every day and am happy to share it with my wife of 20 years. We enjoy family activities that help us to remain close.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints all my life, but as I grew and studied the Gospel from the Bible and the Book of Mormon, I know that what I believe is right and true and that it helps me and my family to live a better life. To be a Mormon is to live the teachings of Christ 24/7 and not just on Sundays. This lifestyle has been wonderful for me and my family. I would not trade it for anything.

How I live my faith

I go to church every Sunday and serve in some capacity that gives me purpose. Christ's central teaching was service and charity. The church gives all an opportunity to serve and strengthen others. We hold Family Home Evening each Monday and my children attend Seminary. Because we live our religion every day, it gives me and my family strength and joy. My local ward is active in the community and is always prepared to serve. We are preparing for a temple in our area and hope that it will be a beacon to those around it that Mormons are Christian and that the truth can be found here as we set the example of a Christ-like life.
