Hi I'm Cole

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I graduated a few years ago with a Civil Engineering degree. I now work as an engineer at a small local company. I am a husband and a dad. I love college football, but I love to play basketball. I grew up on a ranch, so I also love horses, cows, dogs, and most other wild life.

Why I am a Mormon

I love being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. It brings me peace, happiness, and confidence. I love my Savior, Jesus Christ for His willingness to take upon Him my sins. I love that because of Him my sins can be forgiven through repentance. Because of this I can have peace and happiness in this life. I love that this church places an added emphasis on families. I love my family very much. I'm grateful to know that if we are faithful we can be with our families forever.

How I live my faith

Each Sunday I get to help teach young boys and girls about the gospel. We sing songs that invite the spirit and praise our Heavenly Father and Jesus. Once a month a companion and I visit with a few families. We see how things are going, share with them a short lesson, and ask them if they are in need of any help. I've gotten a chance to help families move, transport furniture or pianos. I've been able to give rides to individuals who do not have transportation. These are just a few ways that I have been able to serve these families through these monthly visits. I am also on a committee that helps provide activities for members and their friends and families. I personally am in charge of organizing sporting events and other physical activities that people might enjoy. I've been able you learn valuable experience through serving in these different ways. There is a great joy in serving others. When I serve it takes the focus off myself, which helps me put things into perspective. Christ was the prefect example of serving others and I am grateful for the opportunities I've had to serve others.
