Hi I'm Conrad

I enjoy software development, politics and books. I love to hang out with my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Utah, and I've been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints all my life. I come from a family of six kids and two awesome parents. Some of my hobbies are playing sports, studying politics and government, reading, working with computers and spending time with my family. I'm currently in school studying for a career in web development. I became the husband of a wonderful girl in September of 2013 and we're expecting our first child in December of 2014.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know this to be the one and only true church of Jesus Christ on the earth today. I know that it is the only way to receive salvation in the Kingdom of God and live with my family forever. I'm a Mormon because I've seen it bless the life of myself and my family. I am so grateful for the guidance that I have from the commandments and leaders of the church. I'm a Mormon because I know this is the happiest way to live my life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by constantly studying and learning more about the doctrine of Jesus Christ. I attend church every Sunday, and I strive to be of help to the other members of my congregation. For two years, I served as a missionary for the Church in Detroit, Michigan. Everyday, we would go out to share the message of Jesus Christ's restored gospel with others.

Does The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints endorse political parties?

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints does not support political parties or candidates. However, the members of the Church are urged to be participants in the political process. A Church declaration from 1835 states, " We believe that governments were instituted of God for the benefit of man; and that he holds men accountable for their acts in relation to them, both in making laws and administering them, for the good and safety of society. We believe that no government can exist in peace, except such laws are framed and held inviolate as will secure to each individual the free exercise of conscience, the right and control of property, and the protection of life." Members of the Church are encouraged to seek out and support public officials and legislation that support these principles. Show more Show less
