Hi I'm Chris

I'm a Mormon. I am husband and father of four. I live in the southwest of the United States and I work for a seed company.

About Me

I am a simple guy. I love being a husband and father. My greatest joy comes from spending time with my wife, children, and other family members. They make me so happy when I walk in the door each evening to see their smiling faces. I work in accounting and sales in the seed production industry. I like to garden, read history, and relax.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, because I have faith in Jesus Christ. I'm constantly learning and striving to be what he would want me to be. I love to read the scriptures and learn his teachings. I want to return to live with Him and our Heavenly Father after this life. I want to have an eternal family. The beauty of this church is that each person can have a personal relationship with our Father in Heaven and with Jesus Christ. We can learn through the Holy Spirit the truthfulness of the message for ourselves. All we have to do is read The Book of Mormon and pray and He will testify to our hearts with peace and understanding. I have read the Book of Mormon many times. I have read the bible. I have read about the ministry of Jesus Christ in the old world as well as on the American continent. I believe he loves all of us. I have had very strong impressions come to my heart and mind when studying these ancient scriptures as well as in other personal moments with family that these thing are true. I know that God lives.

How I live my faith

As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints I constantly strive to draw closer to God through prayer, through serving his children and through trying to exemplify our Savior. Thankfully we have the gift of repentance, which is something I always need to apply in my life when I make mistakes. I go to church on Sundays and take the sacrament in memory of our Savior. I serve as a counselor/assistant to the Bishop in our area, and I enjoy getting to know all the people that come to the church. I hope that everyone feels welcomed, loved, and inspired.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Missionaries will talk about our Heavenly Father and His son Jesus Christ, and about the eternal nature of our spirits. Specifically that we lived with our Heavenly Father, before we came to this earth, and that we will return to his presence again after this life if we make good choices and live worthily.
