Hi I'm Max

I love nature and enjoying it with my family. I'm a surfer and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love hiking, surfing, watching movies and staying in shape. As of lately, my two small boys have become my passion. I am married to a beautiful and supportive wife and I recently graduated from college. I love life, but realize that it can become hard at times. For this reason, I am grateful to be a Mormon. The gospel brings me constant reminders of what is important, who I am and what I can become.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints for various reasons. I can only sum them up briefly in this little section. I'm grateful to be a member of this church because it brings to light the gospel of Jesus Christ in it's fullness. I know that out savior's gospel is a gospel of change. I say this because it has allowed me to change, but not just that, it has helped me realize that I can change and overcome difficult challenges as I turn to the savior. Many times in our lives we feel as though we cannot change. We feel stuck. However, the power of Christ's atoning love - made possible through Christ's life giving sacrifice and awe inspiring resurrection - allow us to change, grow and feel joy in this life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying each day to be a better man. Some days are more difficult than others, but this striving has seemed to lead to refinement and growth. I believe one of the best ways to live my faith is through small and simple ways. Small and simple things can be as simple as smiling or saying hello to those you come in contact with. I believe it is important to seek out ways to serve others and offer help in any way that I can. Everyone has different talents and we can tap into these talents in order to help others and alleviate burdens.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?
