Hi I'm Sean

I grew up in California, I love my family, I love the outdoors, I love food and I'm a Mormon Pharmacy student.

About Me

I am currently a very busy student (PharmD/MBA) trying to balance school with fatherhood and spouse-hood (I think it will be a word soon) who loves to laugh and look at the bright side of things in life.

Why I am a Mormon

I like feeling close to my Father in Heaven. I love the feeling I get when I read the scriptures, spend time with my family and when I go to church. I am a member of this church because I have felt God's Spirit stronger here in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints than anywhere else. While I understand and believe the doctrine of the Church this simple understanding is not the sole reason behind my decision to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is the feeling I get when I follow the teachings of Christ and His prophets that keeps me here. I have found out for myself that this is Christ's church by the Holy Spirit touching my heart many times and teaching me things I could never know through personal study without the help of my Creator. I know Jesus Christ lives today and offers these same amazing feelings of the Holy Ghost to those who will seek Him and His church. I am also very happy to know that I have a Father in Heaven that loves me enough to allow me to return to heaven with my family that I have grown to love. They support me through pain and suffering and through the most difficult of times and rejoice with me and congratulate me in all of my triumphs. I know that my loving Heavenly Father would not separate me from those whom I love for eternity. On the contrary, he loves us all so much that His plan allows us all to return to live with all of our loved ones in the eternities after this life. It makes me happy beyond words to know this about my Father in Heaven and His plan for all of us.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by reaching out to others. I love Jesus Christ's example of continually doing good and relieving the pain and stress of others by being kind and helping people to feel happy. I love talking with complete strangers to see how their day is going and then see if I can make them smile or laugh. I don't have much to give to others but I feel like I can give them a smile if nothing else (or a ridiculous look that will cause them to smile).
