Hi I'm John

I'm a father, a consultant, a Ph.D student and a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Utah, and spent some time in Washington D.C. and California. I now have four children. I work as a transportation planning consultant, but was previously an archeologist. I am also going to school for a Ph.D in sociology. I think my wife is perfect and I love learning new things.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church, but was always curious about other religions. In high school I would ditch class to study different religions in the library. As I would study I would compare what I had been taught at home with the teachings of other religions and philosophies. After studying a number of other religions I prayed asking which was good, which was the most true. The response I received through the feelings of the spirit was that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints was the answer.

How I live my faith

I try to do what I can to help my friends, neighbors and family. I always try and take time at the end of the day to wrestle with my boys and let my children and wife know that I love them. I also try to help others in the church, whether that is helping them move, teaching a lesson in church, or just listening to someone talk about their life. I like to think that this is what Jesus would do, be there for others whenever needed and in whatever capacity.
