Hi I'm Allen Haws

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband and father of 4. I have been married for 21 years and love my wife more deeply than ever before. My children are all teenagers now and I love spending time with them talking and playing games. For work I am a computer programmer and love what I do. For fun, I enjoy kicking back and watching a good movie.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of The Church of Jesus Christ my entire life. I was born of goodly parents who taught me the gospel principle as I grew up. As a teenager I knew the principles that my parents taught me were true, but I needed to find out for myself as to the truthfulness of the gospel. My parents did their best to cultivate a spiritual environment in our home, so it wasn't hard to turn to the scriptures and seek answers and listen to my heart. When I felt that the teaching I was listening to and studying were true, I knew that I have been blessed with a great treasure. That's when I decided to server a mission and share with others this wonderful truth. As I serve I continue to receive the simple witnesses that the teachings of Jesus Christ are true and that we have a living prophet on the earth today to teach and guide us. All of the small promptings and spiritual experiences have built the foundation of my testimony that I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true and that we have a loving Heavenly Father who wants us to be happy.

How I live my faith

I served a mission in Brazil, teaching and bring people to Christ. I work and play with my children while teaching them the gospel. I strive to be a good friend to all around me and to serve others always. Currently, I serve in the Bishopric of our ward and work with the youth.
