Hi I'm Ellis

I love to crack jokes and make people laugh. I am the youngest of eleven, a father, a husband, and a web designer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have lived in Indiana my entire life. I am a father of three wonderful children and married to a wife who puts up with my antics. I enjoy bowling, photography, and shooting sports in my spare time.

Why I am a Mormon

Being raised a member of this church since birth I was able to experience all the programs for the youth. Even though I had all of these experiences I still took my membership for granted and was hardly attending or studying the scriptures by the time I was 18. When I was 21 I decided that I would finally read the Scriptures cover to cover, and get my life in order. Reading the Scriptures was definitely a life changing event for me and to this day I wonder why I waited so long to read them. I was finally able to find forgiveness and truly repent for the wrong choices I had made. I am very grateful for all the scripture examples of people choosing to live their lives the right way; even when they had many temptations and others around them not choosing the right.

How I live my faith

I enjoy going to church each Sunday and hearing the lessons that have been prepared and the talks being given by members. If I listen to what is being taught I always leave feeling uplifted and ready to start my week off right. I really enjoy testimony meetings on the first Sunday of each month. Everyone bearing their testimony about Jesus Christ is always a blessing to all that hear it. I especially enjoy when the young children get up enough courage to share their testimonies. I also enjoy listening to talks from the Mormon Channel app when commuting to work. It helps get me in the right frame of mind and I tend to have a better day after doing so.
