Hi I'm Chris

I am a student, an athlete, a waiter and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently attending a University here in Idaho at BYU-Idaho studying Accounting and upon completion I plan on attending Harvard Business School to complete an MBA. My wife Amanda and I are expecting a child in December (our first). I am very involved in athletics of all kinds and my competitive nature plays a role in everything I do. To pay for school I also work full time at The Olive Garden as a waiter and a bartender.

Why I am a Mormon

The Lord has always been there for me and that is why I am a member of His Church. When I was 12 my father chose to commit suicide.The loneliness and abandonment I felt was overwhelming. It wasn't for a few years following that event, that I tried to reach out to Christ through prayer and scripture study and found comfort in His Spirit, the Bible and the Book of Mormon, all testifying to me that Christ knew what I was going through and that He loved me and most importantly, He would never abandon me.

How I live my faith

I teach a Gospel Doctrine class in my ward in an effort to not only teach others the essential truths of the Gospel but to solidify my testimony that Christ lives. My wife teaches 4 and 5 year old's and to see the love the have for the Savior is amazing. I served a full time mission in the Tacoma Washington area, in cities such as Bremerton, Lacey, Spanaway, Puyallup, DuPont,Ft. Lewis, Silverdale, and Olympia.
