Hi I'm sevenshanks

I was raised in kansas city, missouri. I started and ran my own hardwood flooring business there and i am a mormon.

About Me

I am a single dad that gets his kids for visitation. I enjoy alot of outdoor activities including hunting, fishing, golf, soccer, hiking or walking ect... I am currently persuing a 4 year bacherlors degree in business management. I like all music except classical. I also like going to public events such as concerts, fairs, rodeos, museums ect...

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the mormon faith so its no mystery as to why i am still mormon. I have been all around the outside world (i.e. non mormon) and have seen and done most everything that is not approved of. I have a testimony of the church. My testimony doesn't just come from faith it comes from knowledge of the lesser things out there. I have experienced so many painful things and so many wonderful things. Between the two sides of experience the one thing that i never forgot to keep believing was my faith in the church and how much of a strength it has always been. I know that in my worst spots in life I could always turn to the church to find the right answers. To find the path less traveled even though hard it has always made me feel like I have another father to lead and guide me as long as im willing to ask. Just like my own father I seek his advice but can still decide to listen and apply his advice as I choose the freedom of choice is a wonderful thing. Being mormon gives me comfort in knowing that if I listen and apply and make the right choices then my family will be together forever.

How I live my faith

I have just recently returned to the church from being inactive for the last 15 years. So I dont have and callings or responsibilitys yet that have been asked of me. I am working on being a better member until I am asked to perform a regular teaching class or church calling. I hope to have a big part in the church soon but for now im working on just being in regular attendance and learning who is in my church and how I might help them. I also volunteer to help out the church members whenever I can with any kind of community service that I may be able to do.
