Hi I'm Quinton

My wife doesn't cook. I eat bacon in "moderation"(loosely interpreted). My sons have thrill-seeking issues, like me. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have a lovely wife (the adjective was a description of my only wife and not a distinguishing reference between multiples) and 2 boys. I love to travel and try new things, usually those things thought to be dangerous/foolish. My wife informs me that this is okay only as long as my life insurance policy remains current. I used to be in a terrible rock band. I talk about sports much more than I play sports (not quite to "Uncle Rico" status). I enjoy cooking creative dishes. Most recipes are formed when my wife comes home with some random ingredients from some "earthy-market" and says "Make something with this." I have performed trapeze, as has my wife. I appreciate a good political, religious, existential, sports-related, or philosophical conversation. I am a recreational wakeboarder and snowboarder. I am prone to awkward pauses . . . . . and random thoughts. I would love to be an inventor of something that becomes a baseline standard. I was a missionary and loved it, but at the same time don't care to focus around my time there as I feel that I have experienced much more meaningful things since that time. I can hold my breath for nearly 2 minutes. I like to lift weights and I'd rather have a sharp stick in the eye than go running for a long distance. I am the man that Chuck Norris quotes facts about. Boom!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because, simply put, I have prayed and meditated on the foundation and principal of the church and received a confirmation in many forms and on many occasions that it is true. I know that the Lord has set up his church again on the Earth with a prophet to lead it under his direction. I have seen the healing power of the Priesthood and know that I am charged with the responsibility to be as worthy a vessel as I can be to be an available instrument for the Lord's use. I am a Mormon because my mind and my heart independently and collectively confirm that God speaks to man just as I read about Him doing in the Old Testament, The New Testament and also in The Book of Mormon. I know that our Heavenly Father has made possible, through the power of the Priesthood, a way for my family to be together forever, as a family. I am a Mormon because I know that the Lord knows that I know that this is the True Church restored again and that my decisions and follies are judged with more weight than someone who has not yet heard the good news about God speaking with Prophets again. I want to make sure that do not disappoint my Father in Heaven and that is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I try to live my life in a way that it is beyond reproach. I truly seek to do the right thing regardless of the inconvenience or ridicule that may follow. I would hope that no attorney could ever disprove my church membership in a court of law. I also at the same time, think that I am someone that may not readily project a "typical Mormon" persona. I do hear that some are surprised to find that I am a Mormon before they got to know me. Not sure if that is a good thing or not. I tend to think that it is good. I try to live my faith in and through my actions. I have become more bold about recognizing a missionary moment and acting upon them. I would hope that anyone would feel comfortable approaching me with any question they have about my views or what the Church teaches on an particular topic.
