Hi I'm Austin
I was raised in a large family of 8 children and am the baby. I grew up in a small town in Arizona. I have lived in Hawaii and Italy and am fluent in Italian. I have a degree in Criminal Justice and Psychology. I have been married for 11 years and have 3 sons. I have mostly worked in construction and manufacturing. I am a Manufacturing Leader and support a large manufacturing team in the workplace. I assist new companies with developing and implementing lean manufacturing, quality systems, etc. I like to play the guitar, follow MLB, ride quads, and watch movies. I enjoy traveling, spending time outdoors, hard work and sleeping.
Why I am a Mormon
I was raised in an LDS family but had to choose whether or not I would continue to be a member of this church. I have come to know of these things for myself. I have come to know that Joseph Smith was called of God to restore the church of Jesus Christ. I have come to know that The Book of Mormon was written by prophets of God and contains, like the Bible, the word of God. I have come to know that God speaks to, leads, and guides man today through a living prophet. I have come to understand and appreciate the calling, role and sacrifices of the early pioneers. I feel that I have an important role in God's work. I feel that I can be with my family after this life. Why am I a member of this church? I know this is The Lord's church.
How I live my faith
I strive to incorporate my faith into all dimensions of my life. I have found that applying it's teachings helps me to be a better husband, father, employee, leader, friend, and neighbor. My success within these roles is reflective of the success I have with living it's principles.
